BA graduates from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design’s (MOME) Ceramics, Glass and Metal design departments exhibit their best designs at the Klauzál13 Contemporary Art Gallery, Budapest. ARTS THREAD picks out a few of the best pieces from the show.
Metal graduate Zsófia Neuzer came up with a clever and playful little solution to stop shoelaces from coming untied. The colourful clips she has created are practical yet eye-catching and will be particularly useful for young children who are constantly tripping over their own shoelaces!
Erzsébet Lehoczki produced what appeared to be a set of knuckledusters made from sponge. The materials used for her design clearly contradict the initial purpose of knuckledusters, therefore turning the object which is usually associated with violence into something playful.
Also combining hard and soft aesthetics was ceramics designer Márton Varga’s who produced a set of simple serving dishes which incorporated both sharp, geometric corners and rounded edges at once.
We really liked the contrasting materials used in Eszter Kovács’ elegant tea set and in Bernadett Kiss’ kitchen condiment holders. Eszter complimented the opaque surfaces of her ceramic tea pot and cups by adding a translucent handle, while Bernadett added some unconventional wooden lids to her bulb shaped ceramic containers.
The Ceramics, Glass, Metals exhibition runs from 2nd – 30th October at the Klauzál13 Contemporary Art Gallery and Bookstore, 13 Klauzál tér, Budapest 1072
