Intro
Tzuri Gueta is a hard man to label: he is a designer, a craftsman, a scientist, and an explorer all in one. He graduated from Shenkar College of Textile Sciences and Fashion in Israel in 1996 and 3 years later went to France where his striking portfolio almost immediately got him a job in a design studio. It was not long before he attracted the attention of haute-couture design houses such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Giorgio Armani, and Dior. Virtually from the Kibbutz to the Catwalk in record time, he attributes a lot of his success to life in rural Israel. Through experimentation, Gueta developed a way to extrude hot silicone through silk tubes and lace fabrics to create these luscious forms. Tzuri Gueta’s engineering training gives him the skills to explore matters audaciously behind several collaborations with the Haute Couture industry. An exhibition at the Centre Pompidou and collaboration with Givenchy, Armani, and Dior has launched Tzuri Gueta on the international circuit.

Statement

The famous “happy accident” whilst experimenting has lead to Tzuri Gueta, Paris-based textile and jewelry designer - becoming the recognized master of silicone jewelry. Silicone penetrates the tiniest fissures and cavities of fabric, blending perfectly with all textures. It can imitate wood, ivory, coral, or leather, taking on their physical qualities, infusing them with subtle luminosity, while adding new forms and agreeable textures. Textile fibers are diverted to unconventional uses, revisited, constantly pushed further and further in their plastic qualities.

Tzuri Gueta offers a unique line of silicone and textile jewelry and accessories. A primitive, almost vegetal experience is evoked by these creations. His organic forms are reminiscent of sensual underwater plants, corals, and sea sponges, plucked from the ocean bed. They look hard and spiked and rough but are surprisingly soft and pliant to the touch. Large but lightweight they are extraordinary pieces of art that demand attention. The tactile and sensual materials arouse organic, known, and yet mysterious sensations. Not for the pearls-and-cashmere gals, these tactile treasures dictate their “frames” – the wearer should not be faint-hearted! Looks ranging from shock, surprise, supercilious distaste to admiration, and sheer envy are guaranteed. Necklaces, bracelets, rings, and accessories, their surfaces are surprisingly tactile, their effect is ironic and yet very sophisticated.

I think it was the kibbutz that gave me all these possibilities. I had a very inspiring life that helped me find myself, to find my identity to create, and to be closer to nature.
