Ülle Kõuts
What is balance, why is it so important?
Balance is a state of being that gives people inner peace, dignity and certainty, a sense that I can decide, have control over my life and take responsibility for my choices.

Balance is honesty towards myself, an ability to understand my emotions and simultaneously understand other people. A balanced life gives energy, the capacity to think and find what is valuable, to see the beauty and feel joy, to be curious about everything new and interesting. Balance means standing on firm ground, it is the knowledge that what surrounds us is permanent, it does not fall apart.
In art, balance means a sense of equality between the various parts of a work, a sense that nothing needs to be added or removed. A well-balanced work finds harmony between the idea, the choice of materials and the technical execution.
A balanced piece of jewellery is convincing, pleasant, gives confidence to the wearer, supports and makes us feel better.
I strive for balance.
/ Ülle Kõuts
