Natalie Baker is an Australian jewellery designer living in Scotland. Working from her studio in Glasgow, she produces sculptural but eminently wearable jewellery.
Her work is handmade from silver often combined with unusual materials such as hand cut glass, polished concrete and Jesmonite. Working with materials usually associated with construction, Natalie likens the process to alchemy. She enjoys the process of transforming these basic elements into something beautiful, wearable and unique.
She is also interested in the basic elemental quality of these materials which are often considered modern but in fact quite ancient.
Her work is informed by the visual language of abstract art, demonstrating a passion for colour, form and line. Inspiration also comes from man made structures and surfaces, each piece speaking of a keen interest in structural composition and material process.
Natalie studied Jewellery and Object Design at Randwick TAFE Sydney.
