On the Thusrday, April 22nd broadcast, at 3PM PDT and 6PM EDT, my guest is dynamic author, speaker, coach and mentor Bruce Baker. For more information, see: http://bbakerinc.com/. I first met Bruce in Houston at the SNAG 'Going to eXtremes' Conference in March of this year. Bruce is a talented and dynamic speaker with extensive history in the jewelry and metal arts trades, as well as the entrepreneurial and business side of marketing and distrubution of our work. Bruce Baker was born March 6, 1951, in Sidney, Ohio. His interest in metalsmithing was aroused during his college days. Accordingly, he was awarded a M.A. from the Graduate School of Art, Bowling Green State University in Ohio in 1975. The concentration of this graduate work was Metalwork and Enameling, following a study of Speech and Drama as an undergraduate. Following graduation, Bruce moved to Vermont, where he taught art at the Middlebury Union Jr. High School for two years and also conducted jewelry-making and enameling classes for the Vermont State Craft Center at Frog Hollow. During this time, he maintained his own studio. The exchange of stimulating ideas and jewelry-making techniques with Tom Baker led to their artistic collaboration and, subsequently, to the formation of Baker and Baker, Inc.
