Welcome to the homepage of the craft studio!

 

In the year 1978 I was offered the opportunity to join the world of Hungarian artists, having years of experience in the artistic finishing of egg shells. In the course of the years I elaborated a unique technique in Europe in the field of egg-shell finishing, which consists in a special procedure of engraving the shell, applying straw inlays and using burnt straw for the appliqués.
Soon my works became known abroad as well, e.g. in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, where they achieved a great success. Later I participated personally in several fairs and exhibitions about egg-shell finishing and got acquainted with its European trends. I also attended some exhibitions about this topic in Canada.

I consider the surface of an egg-shell as a material that fits for realize my artistic conception and ideas on it. In my view, the form itself is one of the most perfect and simple forms created by nature. The eggs of different birds, the variety of their dimensions, shapes, smoothness of their surface provide immense possibilities of elaboration for the artist.

Creating drawings and water-colours requires a perfect adaptation of mind. Time and outside world fade away, tiredness disappears. I try to make use of techniques I elaborated in finishing egg shells. The methods applied in my paintings set off the favourable joint impression of a drawing by light Indian ink on a dark background and an appliqué of straw collage inlay. The discipline of the ornaments, keeping the decorative elements in a strict geometric order and the applied technique together, make classing of my works difficult for the trade jury.

It is a pleasure for me if my works find your approval!
