Balancing between the words of ceramics and science, I combine my passions for traditional craft, for thorough observation and careful planning. I don`t aim to challenge or confront, but rather to create objects for comfortable use and quiet appreciation, giving life to peaceful, meditative pockets of time, evoking serenity and introspection. Therefore, my shapes follow a simple and harmonious geometry dictated by the natural gestures of the hand and my color choices are influenced by the moments I wish to emulate.

 I grew up on the countryside of northern Hungary. My best childhood memories are connected to exploring the shadowy beech forests around the village, listening to the chirping insects in the tall grass and searching for interesting rocks in the small streams. I love to quietly observe things around me and to figure out how they work.  This resulted in me studying medicine and later moving to Norway to become a researcher, which enabled me to see and learn things about the human body that is hidden from an everyday observer and also to learn and search for answers as part of my daily job.

However, during the years of wandering on the road of science, I realized that for my type of creative person, making is as necessary as sleeping and eating, and luckily, I found my way to pottery.

I love every step of the process: giving shape to a piece of clay, the humid smell of drying pots, the hidden possibilities in unglazed pieces and the magic of beholding the finished object for the first time. Trying a new technique, experiencing ideas emerge from nowhere or watching my hands form a new shape on the wheel always fills me with a childlike joy.

I`m inspired by two-dimensional representations of the three-dimensional space: reflections on moving water and in the city-landscape, distorted shadows on the wall, medical imaging and histological sections revealing unexpected inside structures or the way how the handwriting transposes our thoughts to the paper. I hope to transfer these impressions to wheel-thrown pieces: three-dimensional surfaces created by the two dimensional positions of the hand and by the simple logic of the movement.
