Guntis Lauders pretty early started to look around for his own way in art and chose jewellery design. After Riga School of Arts and Crafts Guntis went to Tallinn and studied there for 5 years at the Estonian Art Academy.
There are no specific national features in my works – they are open to the world.”
Guntis Lauders basic material for making jewellery is silver. The designer combines it with different exotic materials like ebony, mammoth ivory, corals, coconut shell, and various precious and semi-precious stones. The artist likes constructing two-piece rings that give an impression of two separate rings.
Touched by the hand of the artist nature materials are taken to new level. Sometimes it seems that Lauders jewellery has come from the very depths of the earth. His works are rich in associations on ancient cultures; one can even notice a hint on cave art while another ring may surprise you with a futuristic vision.
“I don’t especially try to find symbolic elements – they just come to me. During my studies I have absorbed many impressions from other cultures.”
“Nature influences me the most. I like cutting the grass. In summer I go to the countryside. I don’t work there but gather a huge luggage of information. It all gets mixed in my head and finds expression in my jewellery later.”
