Manon van Kouswijk
Manon van Kouswijk is interested in the universal qualities of jewelry and other personal objects. In her work she explores the way we use and handle these objects, the different roles they play, and the value and meanings they represent. Manon works primarily in porcelain and other non-traditional jewelry materials like wood and paper. Manon’s working methods can be quite elaborate and obsessive allowing her materials to find their own shape or form.
