Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Everyone deserves some Personal Sunshine. I refurbished one of my raku fired Whispering Globes, playing around with some gold-leaf. Generally I’m not keen on post-firing treatments, but I simply enjoyed having time to spend on this.

Each Whispering Globe is a special gift wrap for delivering wishes. They preserve all the whispered wishes and release them bit by bit to the loved ones. Every piece is a distinct universe, a harmonious, complete, unique gift.

Wheel-thrown, unglazed, burnished, raku-fired vessel with gold-leaf applied.

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.
