Ceramicist of the month: Simon Zsolt

Today’s ceramicist of the month Simon Zsolt Jozsef  shows the exceptional sculptural work below and these pieces are one of the reasons we like to share the art of ceramics so much with you.

We love his approach to life and work: he describes it all as a ‚movement’ – and his philosophy relates so close with our values, as art & design and also life in general without movement seems unthinkable to us too.

It nourishes creativity and makes growth possible. The physical act of movement is unquestionably important for design, but his oeuvre can be literally understood as a dynamic movement where the eye of the spectator has to wander from one interesting area to another.

It is easy to see the art of ceramics as an instrument to form basic commodity, as it is the extension of one of the oldest crafts in history. But Zsolt’s work is the best proof of innovative contemporary art, his pieces remind us of sculptures rather than common objects of utility. The outer physique of his works is an exploration of movement, shape and form, the surfaces are examples of a complex pottery technique. Zsolt states, that his ceramics are a movement studies without real forms.

I didn’t want to catch the forms but the process of forming. Not the fruit or the flower, which are always changing and growing but the growth and change itself, which will form the material once.
Simon Zsolt Jozsef



The limitations that ceramics often face, due to it’s fragility, seem to be obsolete. He challenges the idea of the outer borders of his compositions and by communicating with us visually he also challenges us to broaden our borders.
