The KCAC Artist Lifestyle project is returning this week with local ceramic artist Bekah Bliss (@bekahblisspottery)!

Bekah is the current ceramic artist-in-residence at 323Clay Studio just a hop, skip and a jump from here in Independence, Missouri. Bekah was born and raised in Kansas City and fell in love with clay during college. Her functional ceramics mixed with natural elements inspired by the desert plant life have us wanting to grab a big cozy blanket, a good book and a mug of hot tea to snuggle into the coming winter!

We are looking forward to what Bekah has to share with us, so here are a few words from her about her work and artistic inspiration…

“As a ceramic artist, I am highly in tune with the tactile. I consider how objects feel: smooth, rough, heavy, or light. Most of my inspiration is drawn from objects in nature. When I go on an adventure, I look for collectible items; sticks, rocks, and plants are my favorite. Whether exploring the Acoma desert or the forest in my own backyard, these objects and their environments continue to leave a huge impression on me and inspire my work.”

We are excited to SEE what Bekah has in store for us, so here are a few images of her artwork and past Instagram photos to get things kicked off…
