Jeweler, designer, stylist …. ? Who is Tzuri Gueta ?
Tzuri Gueta by Philip Neufeldt
I discovred this israeli artist when I heard about an exhition in Paris last year : “Je rêve”. That was so unique and surprising that I was won by his creativity : “I dream”.
Tzuri Gueta is told to be a textile designer but he is really more than this. He is a dreamer who shares his dreams. His work is based on a there particular raw material : the silicone. That allows lot of extravagance as it is a fine matrial. He can create volume (bead, devored, molding, reptile technique…) as well as a new kind of lace (laser technique).
His inspiration comes from the nature and he seems to be the creator of coral, snakes, shells… : vegetable, mineral, animal !
Tzuri Gueta for Givenchy
He creates jewels (under the brand “Silka Design”) but also work in cooparation with stylists (Givenchy, Christian Lacroix, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Thierry Mugler). His visionary textile (patented technique) is greatly combinated to traditional materials like lace or silk : integrated jewels that give a wild character. Be beautiful !

But his talent does not end here. He uses his creativity and technique not just to decorate the body but also to decorate our interiors, especially with a fabulous rainy ceiling light.
