Babette Hartman has dedicated her collections to the magical symbolism of the ancient world, reviving it and remaking it to meet the needs of the 21st century.
“In my work I like to evoke the feeling of an ancient relic, a piece long forgotten, then suddenly revealed. The symbols and materials I use come from our ancestors and have many uses. Many symbols and talismans are universal and found throughout the world’s cultures. They remind us that we are one people, one tribe. I use bronze and copper because these are metals that have been used for centuries to create objects of power and healing. I incorporate other metals such as silver and gold. I work with the world of crystals and gemstones for their unique and healing properties. Each piece is hand made by me. I am honored to be able to carry on such a very old tradition.
