Sculptor in maize-leaves - Szabó Erzsébet
Traditional Craft Workshops
Biroul de Informare Turistică Ojdula, Romania
I've learned the work maize-leaves from a popular artist Júlia Bálint. I elaborated a particular technique, thanks to which my figurines acquired meaning gestures and mime, individual. My big compositions represent scenes drawn by the classic works of the Hungarian literature and biblical scenes: Life of Jesus, Via Crucis. Other themes are scenes of the rustic life, the fieldworks. By using my creations I wrote working exercise books for children, with explanations and instructions, published by the Publishing House Corvina. Furthermore I teach this craft in my village and at folk events.
