Amongst many, one of the best things about my job are the awesome artists and craftspeople my world collides with. Artist Jolinda Linden, is case in point. I had the beautiful pleasure of meeting her acquaintance last year via a mutual friend. Aside from the ironic fact that she lives in a home my husband and I built and designed 10 years ago, she’s not only wildly talented but drop dead gorgeous. Almost to the point that you wish you could dislike her but damn…. turns out she’s NICE too! ugh…. not just nice, but genuine nice … then you see her works and game over. You’re sold.
For those of you that know or are familiar with her you get what I’m talking about . For those that don’t her art is best described as “two-dimensional” sculpture. Comprised of small unique ceramic components that are meticulously hand created into multi-level compositions her fantastic works are showcased in galleries across the US and Canada and sell for thousands … but (and here’s the clincher for the rest of us) you can have a piece of Jolinda through The Jolinda Linden Studio Sale hosted at Haystack Antique on Old Main in Bellevue (Debbie Nordstrom’s new and adorable temporary “pop-up” location cross from 7-11).
This studio sale is a compilation of Jolinda’s remnants of larger works and installations and available beginning Thursday August 3rd at 11:00 am. Ranging in size from 8 x 8 to 11 x 13 inches these renditions are priced far below gallery at only $200 – $250. Also for sale are her uniquely designed photo albums and greeting cards; creative gems in themselves! Here’s a sneak peek … so grab a slurpee, come on over to Haystack on Thrusday and don’t miss out on this special opportunity!
