Cameron Baird (One Year On)

I am multi-disciplined based in Dudley. My focus as a designer is to bridge the gap between my history and the culture that surrounds me, using light and architecture to create my work.
I am known for making unique geometric forms inspired by brutalist buildings of Birmingham and the neighbourhood, combining modern design with a day-gone era of design. I strive to create works that are mundane in idea however a note of interest or oddity.

As an artist, it is important to me to build work that encourages intrigue, inspired by the brutalist era of architecture in Birmingham that follows the same narrative. The work includes the use of casted Jesmonite to replicate the style of 18th-century Venetian pavement terrazzo, which is used commonly in flooring design within Birmingham. The vessels represent Birmingham at different times of the day from the brightest time to its darkest from the use of colour.
