About

Art Fills Scientist's Life in Retirement

2017 Article by writer Maria Sonnenberg: "He may be retired, but Rudy Pacarro has precious spare time, what with all the pottery he creates, the flute he plays and the art gallery he helps run.
Pacarro’s Suntree home is basically a huge studio for Rudy and his wife, fiber artist Dij, whose quilt art was included in the highly selective “Art Quilts International: Abstracts and Geometrics” coffee table book.
Rudy and Dij met in Hawaii at Punahou School, the same high school former President Barack Obama would attend a decade later. Pacarro’s career as an aerospace software engineer took him to, among many other places, California, where he discovered raku pottery, thanks to a fellow employee. Although Pacarro fiddled with the pottery, it was not until he hit retirement that he could devote ample time to the art.
His studio is the couple’s bathroom, an arrangement that suits Pacarro perfectly, since the space offers running water, space for his kiln, a large mirror for examining the pieces from all angles and a nearby toilet to keep potty breaks from taking too much of Pacarro’s time.
“Dij has the rest of the house and that’s fine with me,” he said.
Pacarro’s primary pottery interest is raku, which depends on firing temperatures typically much lower than for traditional functional pottery. The signature iridescent colors of raku are obtained by removing the pieces while still glowing hot and submersing them in a combustible material that pulls the oxygen from the glazes and the clay.
The inspiration for the pieces often comes from Pacarro’s many travels during his working career and in retirement. Rudy and Dij joined Art Gallery of Viera just a month after it opened seven years ago.
“We’ve made so many friends in the art world through the gallery,” he said.
For his spiritual growth, Pacarro picked up the Irish flute, wooden six-hole versions of the instrument, as well as bamboo flutes. He began by playing at his church, Advent Lutheran in Suntree, as well as for the participants at Joe’s Club.
“The patients may not remember my name, but they always smile when they see the bald Asian guy with the blue flute,” joked Pacarro.
Pacarro’s flute talent even got him a performance at a major Central Florida art venue.
“This fall, I played at the Atlantic Center for the Arts,” said Pacarro, who plans to return to the ACA for an encore flute performance come March.
“Who would have thought that after retiring from aerospace, life would be so artistic!”"

    Aloha, I just retired after 8 years as a member artist at the wonderful Art Gallery of Viera...www.artgalleryofviera.com. It is in Melbourne, FL. My art is inspired by my faith, travels, and readings. I've practiced martial arts for 40 years, too.

Aloha,

My pottery pieces are my feelings captured in clay. The hands that massage my wife’s shoulders, that cover the holes of my bamboo flute, and that strike when I’m doing Martial Arts, are used to throw my pots. The pieces that I create express love, peace, and a “tranquil dark side”.

My work is done in one sitting, except for the trimming. The surface embellishments, cutouts, and faceting are done while the clay is wet. My thoughts and feelings are imprinted onto the wet pot when I step away from the wheel. I don’t return to “finish” the pot at a different time, because I want to capture what I was experiencing at that moment.

Most of my surface embellishments are balls of wet clay that are rolled in my hands and applied to the wet pot. So when you rub your fingers against the pot, your fingers will bump along, possibly feeling what I felt as I squished the clay on the surface.

My pieces are rough and old looking. I want my pieces to look like they were stumbled upon, dug up, and brushed off. Raku is my only firing technique and it allows me to create pottery pieces that match my personality.

Thank you for taking the time to read about me and my pottery.

Take care of yourself, and God's blessings to you.

Mahalo,

Rudy Pacarro
