Future is like a strange brain games that I would expect the surprise with the familarity, becasue we rediscover the things and putting them into a different environment.
Do you think that jewellery is being standardised? What is there of local and universal in your artistic work?
Yes and no. There are features that make it possible to understand in which country the work has created. In the original authors' works, of course, it’s more difficult to recognise it. Ideally, I think, your artistic work must have individual, unique style with some local features. It's hard for me to judge my own work, but I hope it’s like that.
What do you expect when exposing your work to the public (for example with an exhibition)?
First of all to see and listen public’s reactions. The combination of what I receive from them with what I wanted to say opens the doors to new territories.
Are other areas besides the jewellery, present in your work?
Drawing as I like line and rhythm. Painting too - colour, space, an intuitive expression that can be quickly changed.
The last work, book, film, city that has moved me was…
Stoner - a novel by John Williams, documentary film Homo Sapiens by Nikolaus Geyrhalter.
A place, space, country whose creativity surprises me…
Nature always works but most often it's some still undiscovered corner of my so well known hometown Riga.
Is there any designer, jeweller, artist, you appreciate a lot?
In works of many authors I see that they have found their individual style, created personal universe but I wouldn’t like to mention any particular.
What piece or work has given you the most satisfaction?
I must say it was one of the first works I made after I graduate the college. It was only 2cm long brooch named A Fly with face carved in mammoth tusk and framed in enamel, with enamelled wings and moving legs and tail. I got lot of joy making it.
Do you read Jewellery Magazines? What is your source to get information?
I don’t have any particular source to follow and I do it irregularly. I read interviews with authors whom I find interesting or while looking for answers to some specific question encounter something worth to read.
Do you discuss your work with other jewellery artists or any other person?
Yes I do although not so often. Rather with artists from other fields. This is even more interesting as they see things from different angles.
What is your first thought when you hear the word Future?, What do you expect for?
Surprise within the familiar. We know we don’t know. Rediscovery of things and putting them into a different environment. Strange brain games.
