Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Black hole mergers are monumental, neutron stars impress, but Raku firing can produce The Heaviest Matter in the Universe. 🌌✨ And that is both the strength and weakness of Raku pottery, it allows you to create truly powerful pieces but hardly on the light spectrum you often see trending in galleries.

Whispering Globes deliver your best wishes to your loved ones. They are one-off ceramics with a story. The Heaviest Matter in the Universe is one of my most recent creations.

Wheel-thrown, altered Raku ceramic.

Artist Profile

Born: 1976

Hometown: Budapest

Based in: Budapest

I make ceramic objects. My creative process consists of constant, focused, yet in some aspects instinctive experimentation with materials, shapes and surfaces. My goal is to capture beauty. This process is an intuitive search for harmony, a quest for delight. Objects born in my hands are imprints of the inner paths of this explorer-researcher-observer mind.

With my Whispering Globes – tangible universes – I mean to recall the first use of clay by humans. These pieces virtually ask to be picked up by two hands, they are ergonomic in their roundness and also celebrate the uniquely variable tactile decorative capabilities of our medium.

It was a conscious decision to pick this particular form, I liked the idea of transforming the concept of the Japanese ensō to 3D. Spheres also carry ancient and universal symbolism referencing completeness, unity, protection, femininity and a number of mysterious aspects too.

My research on textures is a more instinctive, spontaneous process. I’m inspired by nature and its organic shapes, and I’m looking to create surfaces or entire globes resembling these inspirations. Raku is a great tool to create unpredictably unique, harmonious, natural objects based on this primal, ancient form.

The contrast between the irregularity of the raw, natural surfaces – wabi – and the geometric ornamentation or the timeless proportions of the pure spherical form – sabi – creates the powerful, unrepeatable, sometimes perplexing beauty of my pieces.

My works have been exhibited in Hungary, Spain, Italy and Croatia, and decorate homes from Canada to Taiwan, from Norway to Monaco.
