Biography

Natalie Baker is an Australian contemporary jewellery designer living in Scotland. Working from her studio in Glasgow, she produces sculptural but eminently wearable jewellery.  Her work is handmade from precious metals often combined with materials such as Murano glass, concrete and Jesmonite.  Working with materials usually associated with construction, Natalie enjoys the process of transforming these basic elements into something wearable and aesthetically pleasing.  She is interested in the basic, elemental quality of these ancient materials that also appear modern. Each piece is unique and demonstrates a passion for colour, form and line and explores the juxtaposition of chaos and order.  Inspiration comes from many different sources including manmade structures and surfaces, each piece speaking of a keen interest in structural composition and material process.
