Art Crush: Debra Baxter’s Outstanding Stone Carving

New York / Seattle jeweler Debra Baxter got her first big break back in 2009 when she released her now famous Crystal Brass Knuckles, aptly named I’m going to realign your chakras motherf***, yet I just discovered her outstanding stone carving work. When asked about her inspiration, the artist states: “There is a very obvious Eva Hess and Louise Bourgeois influence. But others are Bas Jan Ader and Tracey Emin, artists that wear their hearts on their sleeves and make work about longing and failure. I’m interested in the power that comes from being vulnerable and giving up.” If you fall in love with the sculptures below, you’ll covet everything from her DB/CB Crystal Bomb jewelry collection, a (somewhat) affordable line featuring semi-precious stones. Crystal lovers rejoice!
