Suzanne Baker is an Oakland artist and craftista who creates one-of-a-kind pieces of functional and decorative art using bits and pieces of reclaimed items – skirts, scarves, discarded paintings and drawings, kimonos, album covers, trays – in combination with new materials. This November at Rare Bird, she’s creating pillows and other functional textile pieces inspired by the colors and graphic patterns of psychedelic 1960s rock. She’s also creating coaster sets made from album covers, and decoupaging collaged figures and scenes onto trays salvaged from thrift stores and other second-hand sources.
Suzanne’s work will be featured at the Rare Bird on Thursday, November 17, 2011. Click here for more information on the Rare Bird November event.
