Géza Gorka played a pioneering role in the renewal of Hungarian ceramic art. Through his activity Hungarian ceramics rose to an European level and has become known all over the world. The centre of his art is nature. He applied the reminiscences of Hanán (anabaptist handicraftsmens') ceramics. He also experimented with new methods of the 20th century. He followed the most ancient, functional directions of ceramics. He regarded the characteristics of the materials as the most important factor of his work. continue

Géza Gorka
"The clay in Gorka's hand is an instrument and material through which to express high and humanitarian thoughts. Harmony, majesty and profound humanitarian thoughts are here communicated... His art is like poetry, but not only influencing the emotions. It is also of a rational character. The individuality of the artist is seen from his works: tricky, humorous, cranky, clear, simple and demanding." continue
