DESIGNERS DAY AT THE MUSEUM OF APPLIED ARTS.

In general, the use of our hands in preparing our first not always seen as arts was when we got to meet the plasticine. That was in our time at the kindergarten and we happily took  home our first ‘applied arts”!

Those are the days when girls and boys decide they wish to have these moments not forgotten throughout their life.

The Museum of Applied Arts gives a space for the designers four times a year.  Some of these artists came along  to-day and brought their object and items to the Museum of Applied Arts. To-day, was the first exhibition this year as to peak into their latest fantasy products, was worthwhile.  This is just a coincidence that the timing was during the Budapest Spring Festival. It is not just an ordinary exhibition but the items were available on the spot. Here are some artists work that took my attention:

Ms. Fanni Király, a designer and teacher who graduated at the Hungarian University of Craft and Design. Brought just samples of her collection to the open fair at the Museum of Applied Arts. Amazing collection of contemporary metalwork and other artistic handwork designs, jewellery with pergamen, water-lily pin, jewellery with stones. Beside producing jewellery she also has a large-scale of designs like objects for decoration.

Ms. Judit Lantos, an individual ceramic  artist with her own studio. She also displayed some objects, as a reminder of the colorful items in those 60’s and 70’s. Her main attention focus on preparing items for everyday use, as small gifts, kitchen accessories and a handful of decoration items. Many of her objects are present at shops and galleries in Budapest.

Ms. Ágnes Bartha, Goldsmith and Enamel Artist. An artist with many sides, who has in use in preparing masterfully planned plexiglass jewellery, metal, enamel, unique goldsmith jewelry. She opened more than two dozens of individual exhibitions with her superb silver jewellery   Her beautiful glass, acrylic material and her twisted silverware ring stone really aroused the interest of the eye. An awesome display of a classy designer.

Designer Ms. Zsuzsa Ujj, Ceramic Artist, at the exhibition a small land of pottery and porcelain really was rich in a spot to visit.elegant Her landmark was well seen in the objects with the elegantly tasteful style. The ceramic eggs, beside other items seen at the exhibition were a real masterpiece of art.

Mr. István Pataki is an organic fruit producer since 1994. He produce juices, nectar and jams. Mr. Pataki told me the following: “Remembering my childhood, all the spare time I had, I was engaged in farming.” “When did have free time?”  “It was my Mum’s decision of when to have my free time and as the berries began to  ripe and be mature, I was out to collect them at the Bend of the River Danube, where I still live and do the “harvest”  collect the fruits of season.” Mr. Pataki and his companion Ms. Anna Konczili  had a stand to ease the thirst of the visitors with the selection of 100% pure fruit juices and last but not least, displayed fruit nectar could have had been brought on the spot.

The first Romani Fashion Studio’s collection was introduced by Ms. Erika Varga, Romani designer at the 1st Romani Design Fashion Show in the summer of 2010. It was at the Museum of Fine Arts, here in Budapest. I had the privilege to be there at the exclusive fashion show. Well that was not yesterday and as the Hungarians say: „Since then a lot of water rolled down the River Danube”To-day at the Museum of Applied Arts, some early and newly design products were introduced and while visiting that spot over heard and saw some customers were not familiar with the Roma design cloths. But some sure were and done their shopping. Actually, both the fashion, nor the jewelry industry did not develop products specifically for the Roma people. The Romani Design has a touch of Roma culture in its unique designs. It is based on the culture of the Roma and wish to serve with its clothes, accessories, jewelry, handicraft items that were so far unknown on the catwalk in Hungary. The design of the Romani motives are products both for Roma and non Roma individuals. The RomaniDesign is using the XXI. century needs in designing their fashion products. Ms. Varga started designing clothes in 2007,  after having second thoughts with the idea of becoming a designer of cloths.

Ms. Erika Varga told me, she believes fashion is a communication tool and can do a lot to get to know each other better.
