Fort Hays State University's Linda Ganstrom, associate professor of art, has work included in a new book titled 500 Bowls, recently released by Lark Books.
Included are works by Ganstrom, her husband, Sheldon, Stacey Letsch, Hays graduate student who graduated from FHSU with a bachelor of fine arts degree in 2002, and former student James Page.
Ganstrom has also published an article in Ceramics Technical magazine on putting text with figurative ceramic sculpture. The article is titled "Bodytext" and was published in late 2002. The magazine, published twice a year by Janet Mansfield in New South Wales, Australia, is just now reaching the U.S. market. It is a high-quality, high-cost specialty magazine available locally at Hastings.
Illustrations for the article include work by Ganstrom and some of her former students -- Faye Park, Hays special student, Shannon Calhoun, Hays, a 2001 FHSU graduate, Tenille Blair, Hays, a 2001 graduate, and JoAnna Klima, Great Bend, a 2001 graduate. Works by three visiting artists to Ganstrom's ceramic classes are also included among the nine illustrations.
