Linda uses an ancient glass technique called pate de verre, a process that involves using finely ground particles of glass meticulously packed into molds.  Each piece involves multiple firings and often takes more than a month to create.  Rich in color and texture, and deeply complex in her imagery, Linda Ethier's distinct creations are both intricately detailed, as well as complex and evocative.

 

“My work is an exploration of memory, of things forgotten and remembered, discarded and re-found. The feeling experienced in the moment between sensory input and cognition, that indescribable sensation immediately preceding conscious awareness" – Linda Ethier
