Ari Pyörälä

I have an open attitude towards the world. Colours, shapes and events inspire me. Anything around me can tickle my inspiration - a detail on a building wall, a meeting, a song, a picture in a newspaper. I believe in the power of serendipity. I keep my creative process as open as possible. I let each artwork speak to me and suggest the form it wants to take. Keeping all doors open can be liberating and at times frustrating too, but this free chain of associations is essential for the creation of my jewellery art. Visual harmony, balance between materials and shapes, is always on my mind when I am developing new artworks.
