A quiet day at the Atelier

A few months ago I wrote about  Jozséf Perlaki and his son Vince who, in the Hungarian town of Veszprém, are busy reviving the ancient art of stained glass. Today I paid a visit to their atelier, finding them in-between jobs. A major artwork in Slovakia has been delivered and the guys are reading themselves for another possible opportunity in Szeged, southern Hungary.
This quieter environment allowed me to wander around their studio, camera at hand, soaking up the experience and focusing on smaller details that I had missed in my previous visits.

Colours, brushes, pens, scrap papers and lots of imagination. This is the desk where Jozséf’s creations are born.

Over the years they’ve begun creating smaller oeuvres, prepared with the same methods used for their larger output, depicting pretty much everything that their imagination settles upon, from religious scenes to images found in their trips to Italy to abstract art.
