Biography: Linda Ethier

Linda Ethier
Linda Ethier

Since founding Ethier Glass Studio in 1969, Linda Ethier has become recognized internationally for her pioneering, innovative work with fused and kiln cast glass. Throughout her career, Ethier’s work has focused on the interface between the self and its surroundings. Her latest series explores the role of memory, of how things forgotten and remembered, discarded and re-found influence that interface. Her sculptures are included in many private collections and she has received numerous commissions for private, public and corporate site specific installations.

Ethier has taught her glassworking techniques extensively, both nationally and internationally.

She lives and works in Portland, Ore., with her husband, the poet, Don Hynes.
