Display artist/maker:

Maria Geszler

Born: 1936, Hungary

Ceramicist. She trained at the Academy of Art and Craft in Budapest, finishing in 1965. She worked as a designer in industry for the next two years. Inspired by the machinery and the factory environment she made photographs and first began to develop her interest in print on clay. The industrial, landscape and portrait images both photographic and drawn are transferred on to thin slabs of porcelain using a silkscreen technique. The clay is then folded into a three-dimensional form. She is also known for her salt-glazed bottle shaped figures. She has won a number of international awards and is a member of the International Academy of Ceramics.
