Ferenc Kiss glass artisan

Ferenc Kiss

I was born in 1957, in Hódmezővásárhely, Hungary.

I got acquainted with glass crafting in the glass technology workshop of József Attila University of Szeged in 1975. I learned the manufacturing of glass laboratory equipment there.

In 1983 I founded my own company. First I was producing laboratory equipment, custom designed ornamental pieces like vases, candlesticks, oil lamps.

As raw material I use glass tube, I heat it by rolling it in flames then I shape it to the planned size and form by blowing, pulling, flatting.

All my pieces of work have been accepted by the Hungarian Institute for Culture and Art since 1989, and can be produced in specified number.
