“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.”
Rebecca Hannon completed her undergraduate degree at Rhode Island School of Design in 1995 and went on to work as a professional goldsmith in New York City. After a thorough professional education she decided to focus solely on her practice and enrolled in the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich, Germany, where she studied under Otto Künzli. Subsequently, she taught, and with support from a Fulbright grant, was a member of a professional jewellery collective in Munich, from 2000 to 2005. She now maintains her own workshop, participates in international exhibitions and teaches full-time at NSCAD University, Halifax, Nova Scotia.
