“I want to be truthful to the materials I am working with, and would like the piece to reflect the joy of making. I have always been drawn to the Eastern Sensibilities of traditional and contemporary art, especially ceramic art. As a Westerner my traditions are much closer to the Bauhaus, than anything else.These pieces are telling the tales of enjoying the immediacy of working with clay, while form follows function.” – Szilvia Gyorgy
