Barb Baur is a Philadelphia based artist, jeweler and educator.

Barb Baur is a Philadelphia based artist, maker and educator. She primarily makes art jewelry, however she has been known to belly dance, repair musical instruments and sail the East Coast of the U.S.

Barb’s artwork interacts with the body and is created using traditional gold/silversmithing techniques combined with modern fabrication tools like CAD (computer aided design) and 3D printing. Identifying as neurodivergent, there’s always another process or material to pique the interest of Barb’s hungry brain. Sewing since childhood, she sometimes dabbles in varied fiber arts such as weaving, machine knitting. Drawing on her time on a sailboat, Barb’s work is inspired by the coastal landscape, sea life, sailing vessels, wind and water.

Barb is the Program Manager of the TaconyLAB Community Arts Center in Northeast Philadelphia. BarbBaur.com
