Linda

graduated from the Ceramics and Porcelain Studio at The Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava. She has had experience and work placements in the renown ceramic workshop Margaretenhöhe in Essen, led by ceramist Young­-Jae Lee.

Currently, Linda has her own ceramic studio in Bratislava, where she creates all the pieces by hand – from the initial idea to final production. Her main creative field is free art and design, with a predominance in porcelain. With love for the ceramic material, her art portrays the everyday pleasures and sorrows of women, often in a funny way, bordering on the kitsch.

She also creates under the name si.li. – the brand that she established with Simona Janišová in 2012. Together, they produce original handmade ceramics for daily use.

Linda is the creator of the OTO Awards statuette. Since 2010, she has been a teacher at the Radlinského Primary Art School in Bratislava.

The author regularly exhibits in Slovakia and also abroad.
