Szilvia was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1970. She arrived to Sydney, Australia in 1989. Naturally attracted by the challenge of new culture and inspired by ancient heritage, she started practising sculpture in 2001 after her graduation, in its various manifestations.Her primary medium of choice is porcelain light sculptures that relate to human space. She has also been working with a wide variety of materials as a jeweller, exploring the qualities in structure, movement in direct relation to the human body. Her works are essentially inspired by her own experiences, and respond to what the qualities of the materials offer.

Light is an unlimited raw material and offers endlessly rich pallet of colours
