In episode No. 6 of the Femin • Is series, I sat down with local ceramicist and bona fide flowerchild Linda Lighton. Sex, drugs, rock n’ roll and ceramics, baby. This is how it’s done.

To be the renowned artist that Linda Lighton is today, she had to rebel, and then rebel some more. So for this interview, we took a deep dive into the early years and some early work. We also took a look back at the history of the art scene in Kansas City. Below are a few pieces that we discussed in the interview. Enjoy.
Still hungry? Then watch this gem of a process film of Linda Lighton by Don Maxwell
and stay tuned for an upcoming bonus clip from my interview with Linda.
Lastly, here is Linda’s portrait, admittedly the metallic gold was difficult to photograph!

You go girrrrl.
Thanks so much,
You are one of the most strong, sincere, generous and lovely woman I’ve met in the (Art) world.
I wish you the best!
I hope will meet (almost in spirit) in our next group show about black ceramics in Barcelona.
