I was a long-distance runner indeed. I was born in 1945, I participated in athletics, and I was junior Hungarian champion in javelin throw in 1962. At the age of 42, I decided to run the marathon, so I trained for it and successfully completed eight, including the New York marathon in 1999. I obtained a master’s degree in sociology, but I started to show an interest in minerals, crystals and glass as a hobby. After testing my skills at home for many years, I founded my workshop in 1989 and started to use optical glass with my associates to produce high precision glass components for optical instruments
and industrial devices, manufacturing glass trophies, too, just for fun. Orders from the industry represented an ongoing technical challenge, but they also catered for a continuous intellectual development. In the meantime, I have always been experimenting in and later focusing on arts, a long-time favorite of mine. For me, geometric abstract art and minimalism are number one priorities. I try to keep alive, preserves and upholds the well-known Hungarian art traditions hallmarked by Lajos Kassak, Victor Vasarely and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy.
I

am still a long-distance runner, except that I run the ‘glass marathon’ now. I am still in the process of developing my glass art on a step-by-step basis to please collectors and glass sculpture fans.
