Karolina Baines brooch

Karolina Baines

Karolina’s work reflects a fascination with the relationship between line and form. She uses enamels, etching and Keum-Boo to playfully explore the connections between her diverse inspirations. She is inspired by the feel of textiles, patterns in printmaking and the living traditions of weaving and basketry. She weaves these inspirations together through the use of collaging, tessellation and mark-making to create rich tactile patterns on silver and gold, with a sense of movement added through the use of folding techniques. She looks to use rich colours, both calming and mysterious to establish an emotional connection between jewellery and wearer.
