                      About the Owner

Linda Bohnsack graduated in 1975 with a B.S. in Education from Southeast Missouri State University. Linda was an art major and student of design, her creative energies evolved using fabric and fibers. She frequently made miniature quilts or wall hangings for fun. In the last five years, she has worked primarily with clay. Her recent experiences with clay began as a volunteer making bowls for the Empty Bowls Banquet, which benefits The Salvation Army's meals with friends program.

After making several hundred bowls, Linda's skill level increased to the point that she now considers herself a potter. Her fine craftwork of porcelain jewelry, ornaments and pottery are available at her business, Artisan Gifts. Artisan Gifts was first opened on November 1st, 2013 and displays work from a selection of fine crafts artisans. The images shared below are examples of her porcelain necklaces, which come in a variety of colors, shapes and textures.
