What you’ll learn in this episode: Why Marie-José developed the Marzee Graduate Prize to help young jewelry artists How she secured the historic building her gallery and apartment are located in Who Marie-José’s favorite artists are, such as Dorothea Prühl Why the term “art jewelry” is redundant How the pandemic inspired Marie-José to look closer to home for exhibition ideas About Marie-José van den Hout Born in Roermond in the Netherlands, Marie-José van den Hout grew up in a family of three generations of ecclesiastical gold- and silversmiths. It was in the workshop of her grandfather, a renowned craftsman who specialized in repoussé and chasing, that her passion for gold grew and flourished. Alongside two of her brothers, Marie-José worked in her father’s studio before studying gold- and silversmithing and then fine art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Maastricht. She established Galerie Marzee in Nijmegen in 1979 and was honored with the title of Officer of the Order of Oranje-Nassau at the gallery’s 40th anniversary celebrations in June 2019.

The gallery was founded in 1979 by Marie-José van den Hout, who has spent her lifetime immersed in jewelry, goldsmithing, and art. She joined the podcast to talk about the exhibitions she’s working on now, why she dedicates so much time to helping art and jewelry students, and how an exhibition of combs put Galerie Marzee on the map. Read the episode transcript below.  Sharon: Hello, everyone. Welcome to the Jewelry Journey Podcast. Today, my guest is Marie-José van den Hout, founder and owner of Galerie Marzee, the world’s largest art jewelry gallery. The gallery is located in the Netherlands. Marie is a highly regarded leader in the field of art jewelry and has an interesting story, which we’ll hear about today. Marie-José, welcome to the podcast. Marie: Thank you. Sharon: Tell us about your jewelry journey. You studied metalsmithing. When did you start liking art jewelry or jewelry? Marie: I started at eight, I think. Well, my journey started when I was four or five years old. My great-grandfather, although I never knew him, and my grandfather and my father were gold and silversmiths, but they didn’t make jewelry; they made objects for Roman Catholic churches. I grew up with all these objects, which now are exported from Europe to America because there are too many and museums can’t have them anymore. Anyway, when I was four years old, my father made a ring for me, and I was very proud of that ring. I was not interested in jewelry. He sometimes made rings for friends or for my mother, but he made a ring for me when I was a child and I took it. I was allowed, against his wishes to be honest, to take it to kindergarten. In the class, I very proudly showed this ring. At the time, those classes were huge, 40, 50 children, so it went around the class and it never came back to me, the ring. I was very shy; I didn’t dare say anything to the teacher, so I went home without a ring. Many years later, I had an exhibition with Manuel Vilhena. He’s a Portuguese jeweler. He had his exhibition and he made a ring from a string, just a simple string, and he said, “This is your ring. I know why you started the jewelry gallery; because you’re still looking for your ring.” I found this such a beautiful story.  So, my journey started when I was four, but to be honest, it didn’t really, because I was not interested in jewelry at all, not a bit. I always used to like drawing and painting. In those times, you lea
