About Me

Introduction

I am Agnes Husz, a Hungarian artist working with clay, and living in Japan.

I developed a very unique way of making, called “OBIJOHYAKI”, because the basic element of  all my pieces are the long flat strips, stretching out from clay by hand.

I make this way small and large scale objects, installations or even bowls.

I am appreciated if you follow me on Instagram, thank you!

What I Love about Ceramics

intensive contact with materiality

How I started with ceramics

I wanted to became a sculpture and went to the art secondary school, but there weren’t sculpturing class, so I choose the Ceramics Class instead.

Than I was 15

What inspires me

my surrounding : culture, architecture, nature, Zen gardens, Japanese flower arrangement, wabisabi, oriental philosophy

What I'm working on at the moment

large and small objects, functional sculptures, large sculptures, platters, tea ceremony wares

My Artist Statement

I am a Hungarian artist working with clay.
The working process is an everyday journey for me, and has a kind of rituality in it.
I build sculptures or even bowls in a very unique way from clay strips, stretched out by hand.

I freely shape my objects just like a three-dimensional drawing.

This is what gives my works a recognizable, defining character.

Since I have been living in Japan for almost 30 years, the oriental accent is not just a coincidence. The culture and philosophy of this beautiful country naturally mixed with my origins, and that is how my pieces, combining East and West are born.
I wish to arouse curiosity, and through mediation by my artwork, to get my audience to think together about the relationship between nature and human beings, to reflect on its elementary significance.
