About the Artist
Linda Hirsch is new to Atlanta, having moved from San Antonio, Texas. She explored many creative outlets before discovering fused or kiln-formed glass. Drawn to the versatility of the medium, she enjoys fusing at a time when its technical and artistic possibilities are rapidly evolving. She likes the challenge of simultaneously developing new techniques while creating interesting works. Her goal is to make glass pieces that are fun, functional, and decorative. Although she has a background in art history, she gets her inspiration from sources as varied as a simple logo or an elaborate mosaic. Her designs are often minimal, with their appeal deriving from the beauty of the glass and their ability to amuse and delight.
