Ildiko Chlumetzky – Folk Artist
“Every day we live life a bit differently. Filled with warmth, flavors, colors, moods,Individuality and uniqueness. I believe ceramics bring all of these into our modern life. As clay takes shape and becomes an artwork, earth, water and fire become one function and beauty merge, Tradition and modernity meet.”
