A showcase of vibrant and sculptural etched enamel jewellery with a strong focus on texture.
Fascinated by movement and sculptural forms Baines draws upon a myriad of sources, including Venetian architecture, Issey Miyake’s pleated clothing and basketry, to create her rhythmic and tactile works. Many of her pieces possess a linear and tactile quality through her use of enamelled silver and etching inspired approach.Vibrant colours and organic forms are a staple in her practice.
Baines studied Jewellery and Silversmithing at Edinburgh College of Art, receiving a First Class Honours degree, before going on to become Artist in Residence in the same department.
She has won several awards, most recently the Goldsmiths’ Fair Graduate Bursary Award and the Graduate Craft Award, from The Inches Carr Trust.
