Selected critical commentaries:

"...she is able to combine the brilliance and translucence of hand rolled and antique glass with apparently simple, but extremely subtle design and color"....Calvin Goodman, Author and Art Critic for American Artist Magazine

"Linda Abbott's expertise, energy, vision and enthusiasm have done much to give momentum to glass art in Utah"...Richard Christensen, Art Critic, Deseret News of Salt Lake City, Utah

"...radiant stream of color...the art of painting lost a promising watercolorist when Ms. Abbott took up the glass making art. Glass is her palette now. Effects are never dull and finished results are often more exciting than a painting on paper...excitement that is as varied as the quality of light and as transitive as a fleeting moment...her impressionist teacher made her duly conscious of the color properties of light"...George Dibble, Art Critic, Salt Lake Tribune, Salt Lake City, Utah
