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!
