Kovács Margit

[M 1&

(Győr, 30. november 1902. - Budapest, 4. június 1977.)


Studied with Álmos Jaschik in Budapest in1924.-26, and with Herta Bucher in Vienna in 1926-28. Vienna's art deco had a decisive influence on her art. Followed studies with Karl Killer and Adalbert Niemeyer in Munich's Staatschule in Copenhagen. Worked at the Severs Factory in 1933-34 in France. She moved to Budapest in 1929 and set up her own workshop. Clearly the most popular ceramist in Hungary, her work drew its authenticity from a combination of a fairy world rooted in the late art deco style, a stylised naive formal stock with singular humour and a prolific imagination. The frequently hidden figurative messages of her works always brought her great esteem.
Her decorative, figurative work was inspired by medieval art and Hungarian folk art. Her sculptures in the round and vessels were made on the wheel and modelled, while murals were modelled. The inscriptions with ornamental role is characteristic in her work. In regard to the materials she used and the techniques she applied, the pottery tradition was decisive. She worked with engobe and opaque glazes.
Was a member of the Association of Hungarian Arts- and Craftsmen, Association of Hungarian Artists and the Hungarian Art Fund.
