Benjamin Baker is a Metalsmith from southern Ohio that is currently attending Southern Illinois University and is pursuing a BFA in Metalsmithing. In the fall of 2018 he studied abroad at HDK Steneby in Dals Landged, Sweden. Ben is hoping to graduate in December of 2019. He started working with metal at the age of fourteen when he learned to weld and quickly fell in love with the material. He currently works with jewelry and blacksmithing and can’t decide which one he likes better.
Outside of the studio he enjoys rock climbing, camping, reading and cooking.
