How do tradition and innovation meet in your work?
I feel a close connection to Hungarian pottery traditions, but at the same time I am influenced by the aesthetics of the Japanese culture, wabi-sabi, zen and the works of John Cage. I consider tradition as a living and ever-changing base of common knowledge from which I can not only take what I need, but to which I can also add elements.
What is your working method?
I work from the bottom up. I like to play and find things, to give space to serendipity, and find a function for the item later. My work is also heavily characterised by the wire clay cutting technique, I use it to shape objects by incision. I am fascinated by its expressivity, the way it is able to capture a gesture in the material.

Where do you get your inspiration from?
My work is mostly inspired by traumas and injuries, either personal or public incidents. I find the errors of memory particularly inspiring, which I have dealt with in several series of sculptures.
What is the hardest part of your job?
It is very difficult to find a balance when making "gastro" ceramics. For these objects, the final item is not mine alone: I need to leave room for the chef, the food, the environment and the guest, yet still keep my creativity within the piece.
