Jeweler Lawrence Baca presents is collection called “Asymmetrical Beauty” at Noel Night where he will share his inspiration behind his designs.
Baca finds inspiration in the elegance of irregular beauty; from a gnarled and weathered tree, an old twisted fence, or the sandstone and adobe buildings that seem to flow into each other. His pieces carry a harmonious spontaneity. “My work looks handmade, it’s how I want it to look. Nothing is perfectly symmetrical, but it’s all so beautiful.” As Baca creates a new piece, he stays open to how a design can take a new direction, completely different from the original concept. “I’ve learned not to be rigid. If something doesn’t come out exactly as I drew it, that’s okay.” This willingness to let a piece evolve and develop organically gives Baca’s work a palpable, touchable energy.
Opening reception December 7, 5-7 pm, with the exhibition continuing through December. At Sorrel Sky Gallery, 828 Main Avenue, Durango.
