Garth Clark once said about Bacerra's work: “[His] work reflects the man, one who has a paper-thin tolerance for any form of pretension. So his pots have no secret meanings. They carry no messages. They are not deconstructive, except accidentally so in the kiln. They are not laden with symbol, metaphor or irony…They celebrate thousands of years of decorative pottery and yet, even though they are not instruments of intellectual inquiry, they are intelligent objects, alive with visual acuity."
