The Art Center is pleased to be once again hosting Ceramic Artist Honora Bacon during Open Studios. She will be displaying her work during the North County weekend, October 3 & 4, and Encore weekend, October, 17 & 18, 2015.
Honora’s goal in making tableware is to bring a personal touch to the eating experience. Pots are an art form meant for use. They are something to hold, touch, eat from, and live with. They bring beauty into the everyday. Overtime pots become like old friends, adding character and warmth to your life. A pot politely asks you to slow down, to engage more fully with your surroundings, eat with more mindfulness and to enjoy those moments when you are nourishing yourself. Food is medicine and the way in which we eat and the atmosphere we eat it in, all affect how the body absorbs food as such. It is Honora’s intent, as a potter, to create vessels that enhances the eating experience so that the medicinal qualities of food are increased.
Honora is a craftswoman and ceramic artist. She began working in clay eight years ago while in college at the University of New Mexico. Completely enamored, she took all the ceramics classes UNM offered. Since her graduation in 2009, she has kept her love for clay alive by taking workshops from numerous clay artists whom she admires in both Santa Fe, New Mexico and in North Carolina at the internationally renowned Penland School of Crafts. In the three years that Honora has lived in Santa Cruz, she has continued to work in clay on a regular basis. She creates mostly at home and at the Santa Cruz Mountain Arts Center, where she enjoys and benefits from the support of the local clay community
