Mariusz Gliwinski



I regard jewellery not only as adornment, which is of course its basic role. To me, jewellery serves as an international, common language through which I can communicate and express my ideas about esthetics, art, and social issues, such as religion, money, environment. I do not have particular language skills, my English is rather poor, but I am very happy that my designs are understood not only in Europe, but also in China, Africa and America, despite obvious cultural differences. I find my inspiration in my everydys’ life, especially in modern architecture, art, nature, music as well as in current TV news.

I met Mariusz Gliwinski in Gdansk (Poland) when we were jurors for the Amberif Awards. This Polish jeweler uses amber  in almost all his pieces. Amber is a greatly appreciated fossilized resin of high quality in the Baltic. Different colors, shapes and transparencies contribute to each piece which contain within thousands of years of unique history.


Vaig conèixer al Mariusz Gliwinski a Gdansk (Polònia) on vàrem formar part del jurat dels premis Amberif. Aquest joier polonès utilitza l’ambre en quasi totes les seves peces. L’ambre és una resina fossilitzada molt apreciada i la que es troba a la zona del Bàltic és de gran qualitat. Els diferents colors, les formes i les transparències fan que cada troç, on s’amaga la història de miles d’anys, sigui únic.

Mariusz showed us his shop-workshop and explained his creative process as well as how he handles this resin.  He is an enthusiastic person full of ideas who is a member of various associations related to amber and his jewels travel around the world. I was very pleased to meet you Mariusz Gliwinski and I hope to see you again.


En Mariusz ens va ensenyar la seva botiga-taller i ens va explicar el seu procés de creació així com també de quina manera es manipula aquesta resina, ell és una persona entusiasta i plena d’idees que forma part de diferents associacions relacionades amb l’ambre i les seves joies recorren el món. va ser un plaer conèixer a en Mariusz Gliwinski i espero que ens trobem en alguna altra ocasió.
