Community. Engagement. Advocacy. Humor.
Robert Baines is one of Australia's most prominent and influential jewelers and goldsmiths. His exceptional craft skills and extraordinary body of work are being honored through the 2010 Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft Series.
Baines has profoundly shaped Australian jewellery, object-making and international historical scholarship. With wry humor, his work challenges our understanding of the world as much as they delight with their technical brilliance.
