Katalin Szallas

Katalin Szallas created functional and/or decorative stoneware vessels. Most of these are thrown on the wheel but she uses other techniques such as hand building and slab building, too. Sometimes she alters the thrown pot or joins two thrown pieces together.

Shape is important but Katalin also puts a lot of emphasis on decoration. She finds decorative spherical forms pleasing and enjoys experimenting with pressing various objects into the clay to give the surface a different quality. On the slip decorated pieces she uses slip-resist and sgraffito techniques and underglaze brush lines. On some of her other pieces the unglazed slip surface contrasts strongly with the glazed surface. Katalin's works are fired at 1260c in an electric kiln.
