Giedre Masanovets is Lithuanian born designer who has studied at the University for the Creative Arts Rochester. Giedre’s inspiration is mainly drawn from nature. She is fascinated with the contrast of simplicity and complexity, fragility and mightiness, destruction and renewal that exists in nature. Giedre strives to create complex, yet natural looking structures and installations. She enjoys using industrial materials, and through manipulation and transformation giving them a new identity and different purpose. Form, texture and surface quality of her sculptural lighting and contemporary jewellery is very important, as viewers can experience it close up, look into it and touch it, similar to the way one would explore in nature. Juxtaposing natural form and man-made material is intentional. Although she uses various materials for each project the tendency for representing organic form and repetition is consistent throughout her work.
