Cutting-Edge: Modern Hungarian Glass Travelling Exhibition, UK April-December, 2015

In the early 20th century if you wanted to make glass you needed giant furnaces and many skilled employees. The recent worldwide fashion for studio glass has changed all that, with affordable ‘one person’ furnaces being common and enabling almost anyone suitably dedicated and skilled, to make glass themselves. Not surprisingly many of these ‘cottage’ glass makers looked to the past for inspiration; even creating a kind of ‘new nouveau’. So it’s both extraordinary and refreshing to find a country like Hungary, where a whole new glass movement seems to have taken a fascinating and unique direction. They show a new understanding of glass and how it can play with light. Thanks to Attila Sík we have presented in this collection, imaginative, new and definitely fun art-glass. It is glass; almost without a past but definitely with a future. Here is great diversity, artistry and amazing creativity; everyone will have a favourite.

INTRODUCTION by Attila Sík, Prisma Gallery Hungarian glass has a long history which is intertwined with the history of Italian, Bohemian, and Czech studio glass. It is unsurprising if we consider that centuries ago Hungary was a large country, three times the size of the current one. In the medieval period glass was mainly used for industrial purposes, but with the influx of Venetian glass makers in the early 17th century, new techniques and artistry were introduced to Hungary. In the 18th and 19th century the method of Hungarian glass making reflected the hegemony of Venetian blown glass and Czech-Moravia and German crystal glass styles. Numerous small glass furnaces and factories were scattered all over the country. Prior to 1945 glass was handmade in workshops and as a result, Hungarian glassware was rarely seen in the European market. One of the exceptions was the important glassworks in Northern Hungary in Zlatno where Janos Gyorgy Zahn ran his factory. The name of this factory is associated with iridescent glass because of the brilliant inventor Valentin Leo Pantocsek who worked there. He invented the iridescent technique which was exhibited and admired at the 1862 Great London Exposition. Zahn’s factory could not make the novel technique a commercial success, but the Austrian Josef Lobmeyr, owner of the J&L Lobmeyr, saw great potential in this new development and after mastering the technique, Lobmeyr made the iridescent glass very popular in the 1870s. The first important figure in the history of Hungarian glass design in the 20th century was Julia Bathory. As a Bauhaus student she studied in Munich in the 1920’s and then set up a glass studio in Paris. After returning to Hungary in 1940 she started to teach modern ideas of studio glass to students at the Vocational School of Fine and Applied Arts. The higher education of glass design was established at the College of Applied Arts in Budapest in 1965. The founder and the head of department, Gyorgy Z. Gacs was a painter and therefore the approach of modern Hungarian glass design derived from fine art, rather than the applied arts. For example his successor, Zoltan Bohus, whose work is exhibited in this exhibition, received his major in ornamental painting.

In the Central and Eastern European region, Czech glass had the greatest tradition and reputation. Being neighbours, the two countries had substantial artistic collaborations and several Hungarian glass artists went to learn the trade from the Czech masters. For example Zsuzsa Vida who was tutored by Bathory in Budapest, received a scholarship to study at the Academy of Applied Arts in Prague where her tutors included Stanislav Libensky and Karel Vanura. The first truly international breakthrough of the Hungarian studio glass movement was in 1979. The Corning Glass Museum, New York, which is the largest American glass institution, organised a travelling exhibition of modern glass from all over the world. Out of the 270 artists which were represented, there were four Hungarian glass artists: Zoltan Bohus, Zsuzsa Vida, Erzsebet Katona, and Mari Meszaros. The exhibition toured for three years and travelled around the world including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Musee des Arts Decoratifs, Paris and Seubu Museum of Arts, Tokyo. Contemporary Hungarian glass has gained international recognition in the past decades. Major museums all over the world, from the Musee du Louvre to the British Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum and important glass collectors, are familiar with many of the Hungarian glass artists, which are proudly exhibited in their collections. Artists including Peter Borkovics, Gyorgy Gaspar, Maria Lugossy, Laszlo Lukacsi and many others have received prestigious international recognition including prizes and awards at the International Exhibition of Glass Kanazawa, the Fujita Prize, Libensky Award and the Coburg International glass exhibition to name a few. The approach to modern Hungarian glass has developed from the field of fine arts. Cutting-Edge provides an opportunity to understand and view this unique approach by bringing together works by 17 selected contemporary Hungarian glass artists covering several generations of glass making.

ZOLTÁN BOHUS b.1941 Zoltán Bohus studied painting at the Hungarian Academy of Craft and Design, Budapest from 1961-1966 and glass design from 1963-1966. “Almost fifty years ago I graduated from the painting department. Then I taught glass design for 44 years, which I really liked. Recently, the old things are coming back, and again I am interested in the colours. Sometimes I meditate on whether what I am creating is a picture or statue. How do you see?” Selected Awards: Kossuth Prize, Hungary, 2014 International Glass Exhibition, SNAI, Troyes, France, 1991 Public Collections Include: Hungarian National Gallery, Budapest, Hungary Hungarian Museum of Applied Arts, Budapest, Hungary Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, N.Y.

PÉTER BORKOVICS b.1971

Péter Borkovics graduated from the Hungarian Academy of Craft and Design in 1994 before completing a Masters Degree in 1995. He is currently a teacher in the Glass Department at the Secondary School of Fine and Applied Arts, Budapest. “Glass –it’ a notion… It was born into our real world from the unattainable infinity of our imagination. Objectivized. Fragile message between the crystalclear depth of our mind and the trangible, mortal world. It is the light that gives a soul to the glass, and it is the light that takes it back among the dreams of our closed eyelids’ shadow. Metal testifies the preference of creative man, it is only struktural, secondary element with glass. Glass hides something spiritual in its material, our task is just to pull the cork out of the bottle.” Selected Awards: International Exhibition of Glass Kanazawa, Honorable Mention, Japan, 2013 42nd Annual International Glass Invitational Award Winners, Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Michigan, USA, 2014 Public Collections Include: International Glass Collection Bardudvarnok, (Maria Goszthony Fundation) Hungarian Museum of Applied Arts, Budapest, Hungary

PÉTER BOTOS b.1945

“As a self-taught artist, I have been working with optical glass to produce glass sculptures and complex glass compositions. In the beginning I created articles for everyday use, gradually migrating to medallions and trophies, then glass objects. Rooted in “Constructivism”, my artistic goal has not been to translate my ideas and designs into mass production but rather to further express “eternality”, and often geometric stylistic influences into the dynamism of modern life. When one looks at my “constructions,” it is easy to imagine them as small-scale architectural models.” Selected Awards: Museum of Applied Arts Zsolnay Jewellery Tender, Special Award, 2011 First International Silicate Art Triennial, Kecskemet, Hungary, Special Jury Prize and Audience Award, 2005 Hungarian Handicraft, Special Award in Arts category, 2005 Public Collections Include: International Mobil MADI Museum, Vac, Hungary, 2013

ISTVÁN CZEBE b.1967

István Czebe graduated as a glass designer from the Hungarian Academy of Craft and Design in 1992 where he also obtained his Masters diploma in 1996. “To me, glass is stretching the boundaries of the risk and reality in search of why certain forms and structures have to be created using this material. This process is an ongoing debate with myself about what you want and what you do not want to shape. What is the relationship between the idea and the reality, and how it shapes the object and the creator of the object at the same time? I think there is no confidence or certainty in the glass, and this is independent of the knowledge of the material, or the amount of time spent with it. I am looking for a balance, the liminality, or whatever it is called, when the imagined form and the material are able to express the creative intent at the same time; the very reason it was created.” Selected Awards: Ferenczy Noemi Award, 2003 Hungarian Contemporary Glass, Grand Prize, Gyor, Hungary, 1998 Public Collections Include: International Glass Collection Bardudvarnok, (Maria Goszthony Fundation) Rippl-Ronai Museum, Kaposvar, Hungary

JUDIT FŰRI b.1966 Judit Fűri studied at the Hungarian University of Craft & Design, and graduated in 1989. “The light is eternal, but ever changing. The material with which I work, encapsulates all: the light brings to life my transparenttranslucent glasses, making it constantly changing and moving. The glass is mystical: sometimes cold, sometimes fiery. It is fragile as a woman, and hard as a man. It moves and is alive even when you think it cannot be more static. The nature, music, and poetry take shape in glass in my hands. Glasses tell stories, inspire thoughts, and sparkle feelings. They revive eras, and bring back memories. The glass can be designed, and predictable, but it does not allow you to get full possession: it often causes surprises during creation. I can specify the shape and the colour, but it finishes the job. My sculptures try to preserve the rapidly changing and vanishing lights, the moments, the special lights of the Sun and the Air. This atmosphere is encapsulated in them that is, after reconstitution and combining with feelings and lights, revealed to our eyes summoning the Nature. ” Selected Awards: Europe Nostra Top Prize, Romania, 2004 Lajos Kozma Art and Crafts Fellowship, Hungary, 1997 Public Collections Include: Glasmuseum, Frauenau, Germany Laczko Dezso Museum, Veszprem, Hungary

GYÖRGY GÁSPÁR b.1976 György Gáspár studied at the Hungarian University of Craft & Design, Budapest from 1998–2003 and taught in the glass department at Moholy-Nagy University of Art & Design, Budapest, from 2006-2012. “The main element of my ars poetica is a kind of philosophical deconstruction. Under this philosophy I brake down forms and spaces and build them up again under different systems in a new interpretation. I always create very strict geometrical forms, but the final object gets an organic feel thanks to the making proces. Glass is a very shiny and beautiful material so I try to discover its strict and ‘necessary’ side in my sculptures. In my recent work, I used opal glass which is really difficult to cast and grind but very expressive. My work is always striving to expand a popular topic (B category movies, UFO stories, Science Fiction, and now the Nuclear issues…) but in an abstract ‘geometrical enigma’ way. That’s why I call my own work style GEOPOP”. Selected Awards: IV.

LÁSZLÓ HEFTER b.1943 László Hefter studied at the Hungarian University of Craft & Design, Budapest from 1970-1975. “I work like a painter but in more dimensions, I make kinetic pictures that change in light, according to times of the day and year, by the minute, by the moment, they change in both reality and imagination. I am interested in the relation of colours and lights as they meet and influence each other, in contrasts, dualities, ambiguities, filling spaces and they escape from forms and planes. One must rise above the principles of painting, set aside and rethink even the ideas that were reckoned to be the best. We should stay free towards ourselves to receive the desired light. We must learn the fundamental principles and tricks of old masters and analyse them. In our new works we should, however, learn from experience and intuition and believe in our own creative power. We should always be generous in imparting our knowledge, taking into consideration that there are also successors.” Selected Awards: Szent Laszlo Prize, 2011 Grand prize of Gyor-Moson-Sopron county, Hungary, 2004 For the Art of Gyor, Hungary, 2000 For the Culture of Gyor, Hungary, 1998 Public Collections Include: Laczko Dezso, Museum, Veszprem, Hungary City Art Museum, Gyor, Hungary Xantus Janos Museum, Gyor, Hungary

ZSUZSANNA KÓRÓDI b.1984

Zsuzsanna Kóródi studied at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin in 2009 and then completed her Masters at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Budapest, Hungary from 20052010. “I always think in layers. The layers induce parallel and perpendicular images, which move in both space and time, and are characterized by a repeating rhythm. In my sculptures and images, the visual image, movement, or geometry of light is always created between two layers at a given distance from each other. I incorporate handcraft, as well as industrial and digital technologies in my work. I combine these to evoke the delicate contrasts that help me expose a given problem. I am mostly interested in monochromatic plane-forms and, lately, in color transitions.” Selected Awards: Diploma, Rectors Prize, 2010 Erasmus Scholarship, National College of Art and Design Dublin, 2009 Public Collections Include: Hefter Glass Gallery, Pannonhalma, Hungary

MÁRIA LUGOSSY 1950-2012

Mária Lugossy studied goldsmithing at the Hungarian Academy of Craft and Design, graduating in 1973 before embarking on Postgraduate studies at the Academy from 1973-1975. “Bygone ages are present in our dreams crystalline phenomena; throbbing lava flows, breathing cells, fluids gushing forth, metals clinking coldly, system-building reason, shrieking soul -shivering. Man yarning for the warm Mother Earth - dependent upon its Creator, a special mutation, carrier of the divine, maker and squandered, saint and criminal.” Selected Awards: XXIII.

László Lukácsi was born in Budapest, Hungary and graduated from the Hungarian Academy of Applied Arts in 1985. “Graceful petals and leaves, mysterious twisting of a pine cone, the roundness of pebbles cuddling into the palm or the magic metamorphoses of a water droplet are all elements of a perfect system.” Selected Awards: First Place of Taos Institute of Glass Art, New Mexico, USA, 2014 Visitors Award of COBURG International Glass Exhibition, Germany, 2014 Special Award of COBURG International Glass Exhibition, Germany, 2014 Gold prize at the International Exhibition of Glass Kanazawa, Japan, 2010 Public Collections Include: Museum of Contemporary Glass, Coburg, Germany Victoria & Albert Museum, London, UK Tutsek Foundation, Munich, Germany Ernsting Stiftung Glass Museum, Herding, Germany Bakony Museum, Veszprem, Hungary Museum of Applied Arts, Budapest, Hungary Glass Museum, Frauenau, Germany Michigan Life Insurance, Michigan, USA PEPSI- Challenge Cup, USA

BALÁZS SIPOS b.1979 Balázs Sipos studied glass design at Moholy-Nagy University of Arts and Design, Budapest, Hungary from 1998-2003. “The figure is my conduit for expressing thoughts, feelings, desires and so on. My figurative sculptures express honest emotions in a simple yet expressive way without flamboyancy. The themes of my objects are based on the problems and the arising internal struggles. The humor and the grotesque are the means by which I express myself in an indirect way. The transparent nature of glass provides a new perspective and allows the viewer to observe hidden relationships. Through the manipulation of the glass surface we are able to peak inside and inspect the inner side of the object. The negative forms inside the object turn into positives ones. The glass links and also separates the actual positive shape and the inner material. In my objects I open up a connection in which this relationship forms a unity. The external and internal forms interact with each other, complement and interpret their own status. The rustic nature of the raw material and the casting technique provides the character of the object. I use polishing to uncover the internal forms without changing the shape of the object.” Selected Awards: Kozma Lajos Scholarship, Hungary, 2007-2009 Erasmus Scholarship, Dublin, National College of Art and Design, 2002 Public Collections Include: International Glass Collection Bardudvarnok, (Maria Goszthony Fundation) Rippl-Ronai Museum, Kaposvar, Hungary

DÓRA VARGA b.1984

Dóra Varga studied at the Institute of Applied Arts, University of West Hungary from 2005-2006. She then studied glass design from 2006-2011 at the MoholyNagy University of Art and Design, Budapest, Hungary. “The relationship of the “image” and the form interests me. Lately I have been absorbed in the theory of colours. I am curious about the three-dimensional effect of colours and the association of the synergistic or antagonistic movement of the forms. The use of coloured glass rods creates interesting effects and inner space in my sculptures.” Selected Awards: 4th International Triennal of Silicate Arts Kecskemet, Hungary - Honorable Mention, 2014 Kozma Lajos Scholarship, 2014 Kozma Lajos Scholarship, 2013 Stanislav Libensky Award 2011 – 3rd, Prague, 2011 Warm Glass Prize, Students Category - 1st, Bristol, 2011 Sanssouci Junior Glass Match – 2nd, Karlovy Vary, 2009

Vida was then Professor and then subsequently Head of Department at the Secondary School of Fine and Applied Arts, Budapest, Hungary. Zsuzsa Vida’s colourful blown and twisted glass sculptures are light and ethereal, while her cut pieces are block-like, heavy, and closed compositions. The lyrical abstraction and cubist formal elements and stylistic features based on colour symbolism determine the break lines, and the optical interpenetrations of her later spatial forms.
