Curriculum vitae / Exhibitions | László Németh ceramist

I was born in 1965 in Székesfehérvár, Hungary.
I first met with clay in 1992, relatively late. However, this effect was so strong on me that I have been using “reduction” and “raku” techniques for seventeen years. My working method is mostly thematic; usually I create variations round an idea. These works touch the border in between the arts and crafts and the fine arts – sometimes tilting to one or to the other.
