Pall Magdi and Gyorfi Imre’s Pottery

 

Pall Magdi and Gyorfi Imre are a couple descendant from  Hungarians. They live in a village named Korond in Transylvania, famous for ceramic and pottery. This tradition has been passed on for hundreds of years through families. Only renowned families and well made pottery has managed to exist today.

Transylvania is a historical region in the central part of Romania. Its boundaries on the East and South are the Carpathian mountain range. Historical Transylvania extended in the west to the Apuseni mountains. Transylvania has been dominated by several different peoples and countries throughout its history. Among other peoples are the Hungarians who conquered much of Central Europe at the end of the 9th century.

Pall and Gyorfi have their pottery wheel in one of the rooms they use as a shop. Their pottery is ecologically fired in a kiln in another room adjacent to the main house. All the images on the products are hand drawn by Pall.
