*Where are you from? Tell us a bit about yourself.I was born in Hungary. I studied and worked there. I have two daughters (Sári and Krisztina) and two diplomas (social worker and economist). We lived in a capital and enjoyed a busy life of the city. We moved to the Netherlands 6 years ago, while my husband got his number 1 job. I started to learn how I can make pottery.
It is important for me the easy association to the ceramic, that this my product. Other sides, I mostly make small size items, because they're easy to send safely.
The creativity was always a part of my life. I made lots of handmade things for my family and friends as a gift. I really wanted to challenge myself and open my own business.
I like simple things, nice shapes, shiny, bright colors and interesting surfaces. I want to believe, people think the same. I want to go my own way, use some special idea to make a difference between ceramic shops. This is a big challenge, because there are lots of talented artists on Etsy.
*What’s your supply addiction; is there a specific color or type of supply you just can’t pass up?I love colors. It does not matter, patchwork, embroidery, knitting, silk painting, glass painting or ceramic, I always try to find special harmony between the colors.
*What do you do when you’re not being an artist? What activities do you enjoy?I'm a chairman of the local International Ladies Club. We organize lots of activities for our members and participate at different Charity Projects.
Holland is a paradise for cycling. If the weather is nice, my husband and I'll make a long tour exploring the beautiful countryside.
*Which item in your shop did you enjoy making the most and why?Of course all my brain cells focus on creating a new collection. That is the reason, my favorite is always changing but I'm sure, my favorite part is the decoration. Painting is filing me up with positive energy.
*What keeps you motivated?Our town is full with galleries and small shops. If I walk to the city center, I'll check the new things and a new trends. This is my basic. I use the Internet for specific search and I can find always a lots of motivations. The most important for me the Team Members and Team Games. If I have a sale, I'll have more energy and motivation, than ever before!
*If you could give a piece of advice to a new shop - what would it be?First of all join to a Team, read a lot about success, be active in promotions, make treasuries and be patient. I believe in the good products and the good photographs. Don't forget the good service!!!
*Are there other places on the net we can find you?Etsy: www.etsy.com/shop/Ceraminic
