“Kintsugi” ring – iron, 18karat gold

Dealing with time has great differences between different kinds of arts. Still they all aim eternity and their chances are not so different.

The PAST of an artwork begins with the inspiration. When the artist take up to collect information, impressions, he/she lets them flow in the mind untill they get rearranged in a new system. Then the artist has to solidify it in an artwork to be presented.

Another characteristic is how art-forms deal with PRESENT. I have been always fascinated by music. I admire musicians for their capacity to act in real time. If artisans, jewellers, make a mistake we have planty of time to fix it or if everything goes wrong, we just never show our work in public. Musicians, dancers on stage can’t afford this. A false note or a stumbling is disastrous..

As for their FUTURE, some artworks need more luck and care than an other to gain the desired eternity. A golden ring is more likely to survive some centuries under the ground, but without a care for it’s artistic value it can easily end up in a crucible as scrap gold.. The written notes of a song can burn in the first war that comes – but if the society cares, the song can live for centuries. Thus the future of artworks depends just as much on their medium as the care of the society inwhich they have been introduced and where they will end up later.

In my work I wanted to represent the delicacy and strength of artworks. Amber is a solid stone that once was a moving fluid, a defence of trees that often captured the struggle of animals for life. It is a great medium to represent the striving of art for eternity in it’s many different ways.

Sudden Eternity bracelet in progress

The diamond is 0.8 carat (6 mm in diameter) The diameter of the pendant is approx 29 mm, it weights 15.9 gramms. It is a custom order for a dear friend. "Rosone" is the Italian name for "rose window".

I was inspired by rose windows and by Japanese tsubas. I always loved the way how Japanese metalsith play with the relation of highly detailed and plain/rough surfaces. It is a game of generosity and being mean in the same time.

The gold one is a custom order for an art historian who requested it for her 70th birthday. It has 18.3 gramms of (recycled) 18 karat gold in it. The silver version I keep for myself. The diameter of the meteorite discs are 14.5 mm.

Custom wedding bands - Fe & 18K Au
It is a combination of my iron Magnetic Fieldwork line and the "Every Bloody Cloud Should Have a Silver Lining" ring - but in 18 karat gold.

The Hungarian Museum of Applied Arts is organising a project on recycleing the leftovers of the enameled roof tiles of the building - into jewellery. The amazing buliding was constructed between 1893 and 1896 in the sprit of the secession. The ceramic ornaments and tiles were made by the famous Zsolnay factory.
I received 3 palm size, very dirty pieces and made my experiments with them, finally I decided the design.

SO... I made this sterling pendant that you can fill up with the Zsolnay ceramic tiles. You've got the choice of 4 coloures, you've got 8-8 square tiles and there are also 2 triangles. In the future I plan to make some additional fillings too. You slide the tiles into the frame and then you pull the black leather string thight that closes the top.

I asked my mathematician brother how many combinations can one create with this setup. He made some quick calculations and the result is:
If you use all 4 coloures, both the triangles and the square tiles you can make 983040 (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) different pendants (including that on the back side you have the "opposite" combination)

Let's say that I would sell this jewel for 300 money (have not decided yet). It means that for this price you have 983040 pendants, so you only pay 0.00030517578 money for one pendant. It is practicly free!! Don't miss this occasion!!
One more reason to buy it: If you wear every day a different combination, you will be more than 2693 years old when you finish it - and by that time you can update the coulours and shapes to extend it by a couple of thousand years.

Moxie – condom holder belt jewel (HMCS övékszer)
When I make jewellery I often work for an imaginary person. Sometimes it is a gorgeous girl, a charming woman, an old man or a sullen guy. Creating this piece I thought of a tough chap with a lot of moxie, coolest boy of the village who can’t wait the weekend to dress up in his provincially modern rig-out. He goes to the local community center’s discotheque with the commitment that he will fuck all the girls or at least one but that one thoroughly. If somebody crosses his way he is even ready to fight back with his small, pointy fists.
This object refers to some Hungarian folk traditions that I tried to picture on the mood board.
Plexi, iron, brass, silver, nail varnish.
The piece is at the Ezüstláz Galleria in Pécs

HMCS övékszer
Amikor ékszert készítek, gyakran egy elkpzelt személynek dolgozom. Ez néha egy gyönyörű lány, néha egy bájos asszony, egy bácsi, vagy egy dacos férfi. Ennél a darabnál egy hmcs-re gondoltam, egy diszkós fiúra, aki hétvégén felveszi a tanyasiasan modern cuccait és azzal az elszántsággal indul a művházba, hogy mindenkit jól megbasz, de legalább egyvalakit nagyon. Ha az útjába állnak, készen áll a küzdelemre, apró, hegyes ökleivel beboxol. A tárgy utal a mézeskalácsra, a betyár rézfokosra, a kakasos nyalókára, a tarsolylemezre, és sokminden másra. És mindezek talán pont kicsit a mi mindenkori Helyi Menő Csávó hősünkre utalnak.
Plexi, vas, sárgaréz, ezüst, körömlakk
A darab megtekinthető az Ezűstláz Galériában Pécsett

Wannabe Knight belt jewel – iron
You throw your blunt wooden sword into the dunghill, and you think over it all again: “How should I have loved such a lady, how should I had been so sure in all. How could I be sure in ANYTHING? How did I love such a Lord who buggered most of it – deeply, with intense motions from his hip?” You think the innocent ones you knocked down with your sword. Your hands no longer clench together in prayer, they don’t grab hilt they do not hug – they just hang helplessly and tremble. That’s the moment when you want to hook your thumb on the Wannabe Knight belt jewel to pretend a confident position.

Wannabe Hunter belt jewel (roebuck antler, silver). You have to find your correct position when you discover that in spite of your flashy shotgun – at the end of the day, you are the one without a single pray. You are almost envy of the peaceful pheasants on the ground but you want to belong to the tipsy crowd, whishing that all those handshakes wouldn’t offend you. Resting your thumb on the masterful Wannabe Hunter belt jewel helps you to pretend a joyful, comradely smile towards your corrupt buddies. After all, you still have a lot in common. This is my latest satiric jewellery, waiting for a brave owner!

Wannabe Cowboy belt jewel (iron, brass). I have to admit that I am a cowboy wannabe myself, I am just too shy to show it off in public. Though at home I dress like Lee Van Cleef and I hide a knife in my boots just in case, especially while I am streaming on spaghetti western movies. However I keep my wannabe attitude when I go to a party and being embarrassed, I don’t know where to put my hands since my pockets are tight-cut and it is not allowed to smoke inside. Not a problem anymore for us, wanabees! :) Blind Spot Jewellery introduces the ideal public outfit accessory! You can hang your motorbike keys on the ring and hey! – you can casually hold your hand on the thumb balcony! When you feel more relaxed or when you want to make sure you don’t knock off beers from the table – you just fold it down. That’s it! Have fun!
