Zsolnay!!! Have you ever heard of him? Neither had I?
But I found this image on Pinterest and was blown away! I thought it was a current day artist…but no!
So here’s the skinny on Zsolnay.
I did a little research and found that Vilmos Zsolnay, from Budapest, Hungary, was born in 1828. Vilmos took his father’s ceramic factory to worldwide recognition by creating one of a kind porcelain pieces made with the eosin glazing process.
During the war, the factory did the wartime production of insulators and has only recently made a comeback. Actually, it is quite a comeback! They have a contract with IKEA that should make them rich! IKEA!!

There is also a huge website in Colorado Springs, Co – www.zsolnay.com Where you can shop for Zsolnay!!
Another interesting website is from the Zsolnay Cultural Center – Check it out here.
The work has such vibrancy, colour and imagery!
I’m absolute blown away by this art!
