Linda Sikora



Linda Sikora’s ceramics work explores the slippery nature of functional objects within our everyday lives. The teapot and the jar, have become the point of departure for Sikora, as she explores the container as both an object that serves and holds (or contains).

Sikora’s work has been acquired by numerous institutions including the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, (Canada), the Everson Museum of Art (Syracuse, NY) and Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery at Scripps College (CA) among many others. Selected residencies include Archie Bray Foundation (Montana) Chunkang College of Cultural Industry (Korea), Tainan National College of The Arts (Taiwan), Clay Edge, (Australia).

Sikora studied at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University (BFA) and University of Minnesota–Minneapolis (MFA) and is currently the Professor of Ceramic Art at Alfred University (Alfred, NY) where she resides with her family.
