Bio

I am a jewellery artist based in Tallinn, Estonia. I graduated from the Department of Jewellery and Blacksmithing at the Estonian Academy of Arts. In my artistic expression, I have practised the intersections of digital and natural systems. I consider my nomination in the design competition and, in 2017, receiving The Estonian National Culture Foundation Award by Roman Tavast OÜ for Young Jewellery Artist my additional achievements.

Statement

I am looking for similarities in bigger systems. It gives strength and knowing that there is a path walked before. I am looking for these paths and realising the chances that the process of work and tools give us. In my master thesis, 'The Actual Calculations', I used digital tools with the philosophical concept of time.
I observed how the perception of time can be described through the use of infinite numbers.

My working process gives me time to concentrate. With the help of material, I am analysing what stands out first and what becomes clear later, upon closer examination. Twists of thoughts alternate with moments of clarity that are emerging little by little. Sometimes, I recognise that this is the thing I am looking for, and I would like to bring it out and zoom in. Inside the printed model, there is an unpolished surface that reveals even the smallest changes of the form because of its rawness. Such movements would remain invisible on the processed and finished surface.
