In the future of glass art it should get closer to the geometric trend of the world.
Artist Statement
I was a long-distance runner indeed. I was born in 1945, I participated in athletics, and
I was junior Hungarian champion in javelin throw in 1962. At the age of 42, I decided
to run the marathon, so I trained for it and successfully completed eight, including the
New York marathon in 1999. I obtained a master’s degree in sociology, but I started
to show an interest in minerals, crystals and glass as a hobby. After testing my skills at
home for many years, I founded my workshop in 1989 and started to use optical glass
with my associates to produce high precision glass components for optical instruments
and industrial devices, manufacturing glass trophies, too, just for fun. Orders from the
industry represented an ongoing technical challenge, but they also catered for a continuous intellectual development. In the meantime, I have always been experimenting in
and later focusing on arts, a long-time favourite of mine. For me, geometric abstract art
and minimalism are number one priorities. I try to keep alive, preserves and upholds
the well-known Hungarian art traditions hallmarked by Lajos Kassak, Victor Vasarely
and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy.
I am still a long-distance runner, except that I run the ‘glass marathon’ now. I am still
in the process of developing my glass art on a step-by-step basis to please collectors and
glass sculpture fans.
