Born and raised in Hungary I have been surrounded by traditional arts and crafts my whole life. After working full time in the NHS for over 20 years, I decided to focus on ceramics as my long-time passion and to draw on my ancestry from the entire Carpathian basin with it's rich patterns of traditional ceramics and embroidery as my strong source of inspiration.
I have been fascinated by the relationship between clay with earth, and the beauty of wildlife from an early age. My impressions come through in the work subconsciously, resulting in a personal narrative evoking comfort, warmth, and happiness.
Following many years of regular classes at Aylesford School of Ceramics, I completed certificates in City & Guilds in Creative Studies, the BTEC Level 3 Certificate in Ceramic Design and the Full Time Residential Ceramics Course at Forest Row School of Ceramics.
Based in rural Kent, I currently work from a garden studio surrounded by the countryside, where I produce batches of thrown porcelain with layered slip transfer decoration. The patterns used are often spontaneous, using custom made stencils and stamps based on my own designs. The serenity of nature, traditional crafts of my homeland and the exploration of patterns in a contemporary setting culminate in pieces satisfying to hold and reflecting the love with which they are made.
