craft culture

Craft time is a time that takes us out of the urgency of everyday life. A time that obeys the materials with which he works, listening to them and accompanying them. It is therefore a gesture far from routine, the one that machines repeat over and over again. The time for crafts in Belén Bajo is also the time for durable materials, metals, stones, to which timeless, simple shapes are proposed, with a certain geometric flavor.

Stylistic influences

Belén Bajo jewelery seeks maximum formal simplicity without giving up a playful touch. In part, its formal universe comes from the Central European rationalist and functional culture, its Mediterranean roots and the survival of the plastic forms of the culture of Al-Andalus in which a geometrized nature is presented by means of infinite patterns.

About Bethlehem Bajo

Belén Bajo trained at the School of Fine Arts in Madrid. There, from formal experimentation, the accumulation of references and manual work, he developed a way of understanding both plastic creation, a universe of chromatic and material abstractions, as well as the value of the roundness of objects as carriers of symbolic meanings.
