Livia Gorka

Galerie Gabriel / Livia Gorka

Livia Gorka, a Hungarian potter, took a certificate as master potter in 1947.

The source of her art is nature from which she typically crafts large asymmetrical vessels, idols, fish, birds, stones. She adopted the pre-wheel archaic technique of working in clay to create unique artefacts, generally in series and groups of objects.

Her techniques are unusual: she makes high-fired items of her own clay bodies, often stoneware and uses oxide-glaze.
