Godwin Baum has a special relationship with a small select group of Melbourne contemporary goldsmiths such as Marian Hosking, Susan Cohn, and Carlier Makigawa. He spent a period of 10 Years working and traveling between Australia and Germany, before settling more permanently in Germany.
He produces beautiful brooches, rings, earrings, neckpieces and bangles and places great emphasis on comfort and wearability. His work is contemporary but is inspired by classical techniques and forms. The pieces are wonderfully balanced and distinctively Godwin and as such he is highly respected and his work is held in the collections of a number of major institutions here in Australia.
