Priyo Salim

Born in 1961, Priyo Salim has been designing jewelry since 1988, after completing a degree at the University of Yogyakarta in 1987. Priyo is from a family of silver artisans in central Java who have continued the repoussé technique in jewelry-making popular before the Second World War.

French for “pushing out”, repoussé is a process of forming contours on the reverse side of sheet metal with dapping punches and other blunt tools. A “chasing” technique is then applied, pressing details (lines, dots, textures) into the front of the design with smaller, specially shaped punches. In both techniques, the hollow metal item is filled with flexible pitch to support the surface while it is being worked. His designs include interpretations of old ikat weaving and batik motifs from various cultural groups throughout the Indonesian archipelago.

Priyo has won a number of prestigious awards for his work in Indonesia and Australia, including the National Craft Acquisition Award in 1996 from the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory in Australia, and he was named one of the 50 best Indonesian Designers in 1996 and again in 2003. He produces silverwork for the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.
