Manon van Kouswijk
Manon van Kouswijk is a Dutch artist and contemporary jeweler who lives and works in Melbourne, Australia. She studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where she held the position of head of the jewelry department before relocating to Australia in 2010.
Her working methodology is based on exploring and translating archetypal jewelry forms and motifs through a range of materials and processes. An integral aspect of her practice is the framing and contextualizing of her work through the making of exhibitions and artist publications, often in collaboration with other practitioners.
