Tributaries: Jill Baker Gower | Reflection

All Day, May 17, 2019


Jill Baker Gower creates jewelry and sculpture informed by her female experience and our consumer culture’s portrayal of women’s needs and desires. While primarily a metalsmith, Jill incorporates materials such as skin-toned rubber and mirrors to reference the human body, self-examination, and vanity. Other materials such as pearls, gems, feathers, enamel, hair, silver, and gold are chosen for their aesthetic qualities, emotional resonance, preciousness, and value associations. Jill received her MFA in Metals from Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona and her BS in Art Education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Madison, Wisconsin.
