Elis Kauppi; 1921-2004, born at Turku, Finland, has been one of the few pioneers in the Finnish modern jewellery. He started working with jewellery in 1936 and founded Kupittaan Kulta Oy with two friends after the war in 1945, leading the trend away from the popular mid-century floral patterns to the design of innovative and simpler modernist pieces.. Kupittaan Kulta Oy exported much of its production to Nordic and Central European countries, but also to USA and Japan. Modern Finnish jewellery art made its breakthrough in 1958, when four major modern jewellery designers: Bertel Gardberg, Elis Kauppi, Börje Rajalin and Eero Rislakki held an exhibition of their work at ARTEK in Helsinki. The jewellery of Kauppi has been exhibited in several international exhibitions and museums: Formes Scandinaves, Musee des Arts Decoratifs, Paris 1958-1959; The Modern Jewellery Exhibition, Golssmiths´ Hall, London 1961; Pforzheim Jewellery Museum 1967.
