Map of Manhattan

Zsudit asked me if I was inspired by New York City, will I create a new piece of jewelry.

This time it is not jewelry. Instead, I painted my version of the city map:) When I travelled on the metro and was glancing at the map of Manhattan I realized it looked like a piece of geometric art.Later when I went to MOMA to see the New York abstract expressionists' exhibition it clicked - I'd paint the Map of Manhattan on glass :) Here is the result:






Zsudit kerdezte, inspiralt e NYC egy uj ekszer megalkotasara. Termeszetesen , de ezuttal nem ekszer szuletett, hanem egy uveg-festmeny, vagy hivjuk inkabb szerenyebben uveg-festesnek!:) Metron utazva jott az otlet,mikozben Manhattan terkepet tanulmanyoztam: a meroleges utcak geometrikus haloja,amelyek szabalyossagat kis parkok/terek torik meg - olyan mint egy absztrakt festmeny! Ezutan a MOMA-ban a New York-i absztrakt expresszionistak kiallitasan bekattant, hogy megfestem Manhattan Terkep -et! uvegre:)
Ez lett belole:)

Autumn in New York City

I've had the fortune to spend few days in NYC this year again. The city which either scares away people or you just can't get enough of it. Me and my husband fell into the second category. In my last post, I wrote about my relationship with this city - I don't want to repeat myself - instead I'll show you how I saw the Big Apple this time. We always try to discover different neighborhoods - to me this is the way to feel a real city - not just the  attractions on Times Square. This time it was Harlem. Harlem has been changing. Real estate agencies, art galleries move to this part of the city, new jazz clubs open, trendy restaurants etc...I hope that people lives here will improve the way they want to improve -  staying true to their own heritage and culture.

There is a great art museum not to be missed called The Studio Museum in Harlem. Beautiful collection of contemporary black artists' work. Our next stop was the legendary Lenox Lounge. Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane...just a few name who performed here. The Art Deco bar has a very unique atmosphere... You sit there with your drink and wait for Miles play the Kind of Blue....

Our other cultural adventure was a great Broadway play: Time Stands Still. Laura Linney is one of my fave actress - I was happy to see her on the stage.
We also visited MoMA - five stories full of exciting exhibitions. You really need here few days to appreciate it all. My big discovery was the "Small Scale Big Change - New Architectures of Social Engagement" installation. It was truly amazing!
OK enough text now -  just click on the photo - there are few pictures of this amazing few days in NY. Enjoy and thank you!:)

Szerencsesnek erzem magam, hogy ismet par napot New York City-ben tolthettunk. NY az a varos, ami  vagy elrettenti az embereket avagy nem tudnak vele betelni. Mi az utobbi kategoriaba tartozunk.:)
Legutobi NY-i beszamolomban mar irtam a varoshoz valo viszonyomrol, nem akarom magam ismetelni, ezuttal inkabb a kameramon keresztul szeretnem megmutatni hogy lattam mostani latogatasunk alkalmaval a varost. Igyekszunk mindig uj varosreszeket bejarni ( a "bejaras "NY-ban idezojeles) , "beleszagolni a levegobe", megnezni hol vasarolnak a helyiek, hol elik mindennapjaikat....a Times Square attrakcioinal ez valosabb kepet ad. Ezuttal Harlem-et szerettuk volna kicsit felfedezni - mar amennyire a szukos idonkbe belefert. Harlem is valtozik. Lassan, de valtozik....Uj lakohazak epulnek ( megtudjak e fizetni azok, akik itt elnek?) muveszeti galeriak, elegans boltok, ettermek, jazz kocsmak nyilnak.... Remelem ugy valtozik ez a kornyek, ahogy azt az itt lakok is szeretnek, megtartva sajat hagyomanyaikat, kulturajukat  - s nem ugy, hogy ok meginkabb a peremvarosokba szorulnak,mert mar ezt sem tudjak megfizetni...
Mindenkepp erdemes az idelatogatoknak megnezni a The Studio Museum in Harlem -et, kortars fekete muveszek kiallitasait.
Innen egy masik legandas helyre mentunk a Lenox Lounge-ba. Tortenelmi hely, itt jatszott Miles Davis, John Coltrane, enekelt Billie Holiday - hogy csak par nevet emlitsunk. Az Art Deco stilusu bar ma is felkapott hely a jazz kedvelok koreben, Ulsz az italod mellett es varod, hogy Miles eljatsza a Kind of Blue-t....Van egy hangulata!:)
Kovetkezo kulturalis elmeny egy Broadway darab volt, Laura Linney-vel, akit en nagyon szeretek, s most eloben lathattam, szinpadon.....Times Stands Still.  Szuper volt!:)
Es Voltunk a MOMA-ban is:)  Olyan hatalmas es gazdag anyag, hogy tobb nap is keves lenne mindent vegignezni.....Az a par ora, amit itt toltottunk perceknek tunt.... Legnagyobb elmeny egy epiteszeti kiallitas volt - bele sem kezdek elmeselni, latni kell:)

OK, eleg a szovegbol, klikkelj a kepre es ott talalsz (jo)nehany fotot errol a par naprol. :)  Jo szorakozast es koszonom, ha megnezed!:)

Mzuribeads

To me blogging is all about sharing. Sharing thoughts, everyday's beauties, ups and downs - random finds, things which interest me somehow. I always respect organizations or individual initiatives which try to make our world a little more livable for those who are less fortunate, who stand up for humanity, equality, and fair trade.


I'm glad to be able to find Mzuribeads's website . They are beaders who live in Uganda and make amazingly beautiful beads from recycled magazines.

"Mzuribeads is one of the many inspirational projects moving away from charitable aid, and onto the concept of business enterprise for sustainable income and development."

Please read their story and browse through their site which is full with not just gorgeous beads but love.




Szamomra a bloggolas = megosztas. Megosztasa annak, amit valamilyen oknal fogva epp erdekesnek talalok -mindennapi apro szepsegek, tortenesek, izgalmas weboldalak - pl most a Mzuribeads-e. Veletlen talaltam rajuk - nagy oromomre!:)  Ugandai gyongykeszitok, akik osszegyujtik a magazinokat,szines ujsagokat, posztereket - es abbol elkepeszto csoda-gyongyoket keszitenek!  Probaljak az eletuk iranyitasat a kezukbe venni , nem adomanyoktol fuggeni.
Olvassatok el a tortenetuket vagy/es nezzetek meg mire kepesek a szinte semmibol.....

My Friday Etsy Pick

From today on, every Friday I will pick one item from Etsy - just for fun. Something what I like that day. It can be anything from clothes to jewelry, from paintings to ceramics ... and a little exposure won’t hurt the seller.:) But the purpose of this is just fun. To make it a little more interesting I will choose music which I think fits well the piece!:)


My first choice is Magic2Art's split skirt.



I just love this style! I always did and always will no matter how old I'm. :) This look is so anti-corporate!:) Simple and different. I can picture my jewelry with it…:)

And for music - listen to a little Dave Matthews Band while browsing through Magic2Art Etsy shop.

Just A Little Spark


As you can see it - I don't work with " dichro " glass. I don't like it. No offense - I know there are many glass artists who can use dichro tastefully - it is just not my style. But sometimes I drop a little iridescent glass on top of the other glass layers to get a lustrous look. Just a touch of spark. I've made this ring in that way - for fun. I'll save the rest of the iridescent glass for the holiday!:)


Amint talan az eddigiekbol kiderult,  nem dolgozom " dichro"  uveggel -barmily nepszeruek - en nem szeretem oket. Ez csak szemelyes preferencia, tudom, nagyon sok uvegmuvesz, kezmuves izlessel hasznalja,  - de en nem kedvelem, nem az esetem. Idonkent viszont kell egy kis csillogas(?) - mint pl. ma, ebbe a borus delutanba... :)  Ilyenkor a retegek koze/fole dobok nehany irrizalo uveget, ami ad egy kis csillogast, - de epp, hogy egy kicsit!:) Ennyi meg nekem is belefer. Neha. :)
