Bódvalenke - Freskófalu





Magyarorszagon lattam egy dokufilmet errol a kezdemenyezesrol. Azota is sokszor eszembejut.

Milyen jo is lenne tobb hasonlorol hallani ebben az eloiteletekkel teli vilagunkban. Ez a falu a maga erejebol szeretne kitorni a nyomorusagbol - egy kis segitseggel csodakat alkotnak. Igy is lehet.

"Az Európában egyedülálló közösségi művészeti alkotás ötlete Pásztor Esztertől, az Európa Műhely Kulturális és Közművelődési Társaság projektvezetőjétől származik. „Megelégeltem a nyomorúságos közállapotokat, és úgy gondoltam, tenni kéne valamit. Két évvel ezelőtt egy barátom hozott el Bódvalenkére, hogy csináljunk valamit, ebben a halálra ítélt faluban” – mesél a kezdetekről Pásztor Eszter. „Beugrott egy tizenöt évvel korábbi egyiptomi emlékem: van egy falu, ahol kipingálták a házak falait és ragyogóan megéltek ebből a helyiek. Sorra mennek a turistabuszok, etetik, itatják őket.” Az Aggteleki Nemzeti Parkba látogató turisták akár Bódvalenkére is átugorhatnának, hogy megcsodálják ezt a különleges művészeti projektet, ugyanis csak 10 km a távolság. "

Igy indult, a tovabbiakat elolvashatjatok a web oldalukon es itt .  

Help is requested for the implementation of a very special project. One of the Hungary’s most deprived ghetto villages struck with multiple deprivation wishes to get back on its feet, to demonstrate that with a little help it is able to break out of poverty through its own efforts.


A centre of art unique in Europe is in the making in this village: a tremendous open-air exhibition of European Roma painiting. Initially, Hungarian Roma painters painted murals on the walls: so far, thirteen monumental works have been completed. As of the spring of 2011, Roma painters from other European countries will also be invited.

Knitted Glass

This pendant is part of my new series called Knitted Glass. To achieve this unique look I fused transparent and opal glass rods and stringers togather. After that I shaped it on my diamond grinder then  fused again for shine and durability. It was fun - hope you like it:)


Uj sorozat indul : Kotott Uveg neven:) Ez az elso darabok egyike. Attetszo es opal uvegrudakat olvasztottam ossze, majd gyemant-csiszoloval formaltam . Ezutan ujra ment a kemencebe - igy nehany nap alatt el is erte a vegleges arculatat. ( Az uveg-fusing nagyon nagy turelemre nevel - pedig nekem alaptermeszetem a turelmetlenseg:))

Polymer Clay Necklace In Progress

This polyclay piece is under progress. I want to keep its simplicity but make the colors more "washed out" looking... not pastel but more subtle… I do constant research on polyclay color mixing, how can one create ANY color using the basic colors (and anything else - like acrylic paint, spices from your kitchen, etc.). You can make your unique colors by rolling the most strange colors together -there is no limit just your imagination....:) ( A little color theory helps but my advice would be to forget about the rules and start experimenting........

That's what I've been doing:)

Meg dolgozom rajta, nem a vegleges darab. Az egyszeruseget, formajat szeretnem megtartani - de a szineket ennel "mosottabbnak" kepzelem. Nem paszteleket akarok, csak olyan......szoval, mosottakat!:)   Izgalmas  feladat szineket kikeverni -ill. "kigyurni" nehany alapszinbol! Egy kis Szinelmelet hasznos lehet, de meginkabb a kiserletezo kedv , amivel batran keverheto a gyurma pl akril festekkel, vagy akar a konyhai fuszerekkel -( allitolag fahejjal remek terracotta szin  allithato elo :))  Egyelore en meg csak gyurmat gyurmaval kevertem, de hamarosan bevetem a szegedi pirospaprikat!:)

2011 Color of the year - Honeysuckle


I always check out the Pantone's color-forecast which is for professional designers - but I never follow it strictly. I use this tool as an inspiration in my creative work (jewelry and interior design). It is fun to know the trend but I always use colors the way I like it at the moment. I mix and match them or intentionally mismatch them.
As we can read it on Pantene's site the color of 2011 is the reddish pink Honeysuckle.(PANTONE 18-2120) I'm not really into pinks... but everything depends on how you use it. I like certain hues of pink with grays, blacks or browns - with those colors pink is not too sugary...:)

Pantone said:
Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.
Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it.
So let's give a try to Honeysuckle - it can't be that bad!:)




Figyelemmel kovetem a szin-szakertonek szamito Pantone trendjeit, de  szamomra ez inkabb jatek, inspiracio- forras.
Pantone a mályvás rózsaszínt  nevezte meg  a 2011-es év szinenek. Az árnyalat kódja 18-2120, neve pedig a honeysuckle (lonc).

Nem mondanam, hogy a rozsaszin a kedvenc szinem, de bizonyos arnyalatait szeretem, foleg szurkevel, barnaval, feketevel - ezekkel a szinekkel mar nem annyira "edeskes," -igaz, nem is annyira romantikus...:)



"A Pantone vezérigazgatója szerint igazán felpezsdítő színről van szó, melynek adrenalinszint-növelő hatása is van. A Pantone szakértői szerint a honeysuckle bátor, magabiztos és életteli szín, ami tökéletesen mutat női kiegészítőkön, de azért is nyerhetett, mert állítólag férfi nyakkendőkön és ingeken is jól mutat."
