Marissa Ziesing is an Australian silversmith and jeweller. Graduating in 2017 from the University of South Australia, Jewellery & Metal and in 2014 from Enmore Design Centre, Jewellery & Object Design.
Instrumental to the development of her work is a desire to understand the relationship of human conscious and unconscious with place and identity. The work translates a sense of place in a contemporary context.
The speciality and focus shown in the collections exemplifies an innate capacity for the traditional craft of silversmithing that extends across disciplines of sculpture, functional objects and design. Technical knowledge is something she strives for and is reflected in her pieces.
Marissa translates her love of the craft into seasonal jewellery and tableware collections to compliment her bespoke pieces. Marissa is continuing to establish herself as a maker and form a strong contemporary silversmith and jewellery practice.
