Kalinowski Jewellery is created by the partnership of Viktor Kalinowski and Elaine Rieger in their studio on the outskirts of Melbourne.
Known for the colourful anodised aluminium range, this contemporary jewellery practice is inspired by nature and focuses on clean forms and with that pop of colour! Anodised aluminium and sterling silver are the materials predominately used in the jewellery work.
A sculptor and jeweller, Viktor trained with professional artisans in Poland and is also self-taught through experimentation. Elaine has an art therapy background and a lifelong fascination with colour.
Viktor Kalinowski jewellery and sculptures are in many private collections around the world. The Melbourne Museum in Victoria, has acquired one of Viktor’s medallion objects, and he has previously been commissioned for several public sculpture works.
Viktor has exhibited in the United States three times, has won an Australian sculpture prize, and created a monumental stone work in granite called “Gaia” at the International Sculpture Symposium in South Australia.
‘The Couch’ in the image is a private commission Viktor made some years back for a Melbourne client.
