The objects of Thomas Hauser have been recognized internationally, with multiple Red Dot Awards, the iF-Award and the Good Design Award. The jewelry maker is a craftsman, metallurgist, engineer, scientist, and concept artist in one person.
It was a reading of the Johann Wolfgang von Goethe translated autobiography of the most significant Italian goldsmith and sculptor of the fading renaissance Benvenuto Cellinis, that was the start point for the then 15 year old to learn the craft of goldsmithing. By the end of his apprenticeship at the age of 21 he won, as the best European, the silver medal at the Skill Olympics in Birmingham.
Over the following 12 years his education took him to Paris and New York where he founded ATELIER ALLURE in 1998. During this time Thomas Hauser crafted fine jewelry, pendulums, and tableware for leading jewelry houses like Cartier, Tiffany, Boucheron, Chaumet, Mauboussin, as well as jewelry and accessories for fashion labels such as Calvin Klein, Anne Klein, and Donna Karan. At the same time he taught as a guest professor for jewelry design at the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T), State University of New York. Among the private collectors who own work by Thomas Hauser can be counted personalities such as the Sultan of Brunei.
Thomas Hauser is a jewelry maker in the sense of a universal renaissance artist: technique, craftwork, research, and the artistic idea fuse together in his work to create aesthetically pleasing, intellectually challenging, and sensual sculpture in miniature format.
