Gustav Gaudernack  was born into a typical artisan family in Bohemia.
He began his apprenticeship in 1880.
He arrived in Kristiania in 1891 where he first took up employment as a draftsman, working for the Christiania Glassmagasin. Whilst there, he produced designs for both for Hadeland Glassverk and Høvik Verk.
In June 1892 he began producing designs for David Andersen and in 1894 he was on permanently as a designer. He was the company's sole in-house designer until  1910. Gustav Gaudernack's artistic direction is largely credited in the development of David Anderson's production of enamelware.
In 1912 he took up a position with the Arts and Crafts School as its  first lecturer in jewellery design.
It was during his study trips abroad that  Gustav Gaudernack decided to start up his own business. He presented his journeyman's piece as a goldsmith in 1910 and on 1 November of that same year he founded "Factory for Silver, Filigree & Enamelware" at Storgaten 2 in Kristiania.
He was officially licensed as a goldsmith the same year.
He died early in the year 1914, but the workshop continued until 1938 under the auspices of his wife, Anna, and his son, Finn.
