Ceramicist Lynda Hassin creates in porcelain, working from her workshop in County Tyrone. After graduating from Cumbria Institute of the Arts in Carlisle with a BA (Hons) in Contemporary Applied Art, she returned home to Northern Ireland and set up Lynda B Jewellery & Ceramics just outside Banbridge, Co. Down. In 2012 she moved her workshop to County Tyrone where she now lives.
Lynda uses handbuilding techniques working with flat slabs of porcelain and formers to create her pieces, adding texture or hand drawing her designs onto the porcelain surface before shaping it. Textiles was an initial area of preference at college before she discovered porcelain and imprinting and so it remains a strong influence on her style. Texture has always been a feature in Lynda’s work, often using lace to add imprints. In her most recent ranges she’s been exploring other mark making techniques at various stages of her making process.
Much of the inspiration for Lynda’s work comes from personal memories and connections, a little quote she found inspiring, a little moment that captured her attention and imagination. Family is another source of inspiration. Lynda inherited a love of flowers and gardening from her grandmother and this influence is clearly seen in many of her floral themed ranges, especially her ‘Dorothy Range’ a tribute to her grandmother and her beautiful garden
