Kate Baker graduated with First Class Honours from the Glass Workshop at the Australian National University School of Art (Canberra) in 1999. More recently in 2014 she founded Studio4 , a kiln forming and cold working glass studio in Sydney where she continues to develop her practice.
Primarily interested in the intersection between the individual’s internal and external realms, Baker’s work explores psychological ‘environments’ created through one’s individual experience.
An Australian contemporary artist, working across disciplines. Photography, digital and print-media techniques are combined with glass making to create works where enigmatic imagery is locked within layers of glass.
Baker’s expansive approach to her practice has been validated in recent years by her growing national and international profile. A finalist four times in the prestigious Ranamok Glass Prize, her work has been profiled in several international exhibitions including the 2007 International Exhibition of Glass Kanazawa, Japan. In 2010 Baker won the internationally sought after E-merge Gold Award at Bullseye Glass, Portland USA, which has seen the demand for her work accelerate dramatically.
Her artwork is featured in a number of collections around the world.
