Everyday, Useful Items From Brooklyn, NY

By the Baker started in 2012 as a place to share items that are both utilitarian and simple. It's the items that have been used, loved, torn, repaired and handled that I cherish the most in my life. My hope for the pieces that populate By The Baker is that they are used for years and decades - wearing into their practicality. Incorporating my love of weaving and sewing led me to numerous ways of using materials to make everyday items with a long-lasting quality.

Baker is my middle name and my maternal grandmother's maiden name. My grandmother, Lois Baker Muehl, always kept her hands busy with a variety of tactile crafts – creating small stories and characters with shells, stones and driftwood, sewing and embroidering hand-pieced wall hangings, hooking rugs, and creating joyful sculptures with trinkets and found materials that brought her joy. Her creative generosity, sense of play and love of materiality has always resonated with me.
