“My ancestors were artists, I started to make ceramics since I was six years old, I learned the fire enameling and the glass plumbing, but I spent my life in the artist district of Szentendre in vain, my parents wanted me to run a non-artist career, because they were anxious. So I became a forest engineer. Had I not been dealing with glass, I would have been, by qualification, a tour operator for hunting. I like the smell of plumbing, of the paint, of turpentine. When I moved my workshop to the tiny storeroom of a ten-storey building, I decided to produce lamps of glass, and I knew I were happy if I could afford my expenses and some food “

Working with fired enamels gives plenty of ideas. Millefiori inlays are often used for pendants. The special Venice/Murano glass is well fitted to this green field.

The glass bewitches and seduces. Its wide variety gives satisfaction to the diverse tastes. „ A friend of mine recommended me to create a classic Tiffany lamp for her healing osteopath. It was not to my taste. Among the geometric patterns of warm colours I concealed several flowers. After a year the customer brought back, he can not live with it. I bought back. A painter friend of us came, wanting to buy something for the 85th birthday of his mother. He chose this lamp. Soon the beloved one deceased. In her last minutes she looked at the lamp.” „Have you a more cheerful story? – After long silence we asked. „Do you think it is not the most humane story?”
