Agnes Husz (b. 1961), though Hungarian born, has received the chawan tradition during her three decades in Japan. Her rustic, spiraling designs are styled from cut slabs of clay, which coil and converge in twisting abstract patterns. She has developed a very unique way of making. The basic element of each piece is very similar to the Japanese kimono obi-belt; the long flat stripes, what she stretched out of the clay by hand, form sash-like forms.  Through mediating on her artwork,  she wishes that her audience joins together to consider the relationship between nature and human beings and reflect on its elementary significance


Husz recieved her Master's of Fine Art, the Moholy-Nagy University of Arts and Design in Budapest (1990) before developing her signature spiral technique at European Ceramic Center in the Netherlands in 1993.


Her works have shown at international symposiums, including: 
Kecskemét International Ceramic Studio (ICSK) 2019,
Cloud Forest Collective Studio, Taipei, Taiwan 2019,
Arctic International Ceramic Symposium (ACC), Posio, Finland 2016.

Selected Awards:
Ferenczy Noémi Prize, a Hungarian State Honour (2015).
As of 2013 she is an elected member of the International Ceramic Academy (IAC), Geneva,
