Rebecca Hannon graduated from Rhode Island School of Design and then worked as a goldsmith for five years in New York City before attending the Akademie der Bildenden Kuenste in Munich, Germany on a Fulbright scholarship.
Five years later she returned to North America and currently teaches, lectures and has her own workshop.
Her work can be found in public and private collections internationally.
In her work, she strives to create evocative objects that double as fine souvenirs. Place and time are documented through the process of making. A fleeting memory, a lost bauble or an everyday object are refashioned to create a small celebratory ornament.
“I work in series and find each new grouping a challenge to create tension between the story, and the right medium to evoke meaning. Materials are endless; one must search and then concentrate to find the subtle message found in an object.”
