Johan van Aswegan is an enamelist and jeweler born in Namibia, Africa. He studied under the famed Professor Hermann Junger in Munich, Germany before moving to the US in 1996 to teach at RISD. Van Aswegen’s work encapsulates an age-old tradition in jewelry – that of a personal marker or monument. The scale and tone of his work is monumental; subtle arrangements of historical references and classic forms are combined with desert-like tonal variations in color to embody the purity of contemporary ornamentation. His work has been exhibited internationally in galleries and museums, including the Museum of Art and Design, NY; Nitskana Gallery, South Africa; Stadt Museum, Munich, Germany and Deagu, Seoul, Korea.
