Miniature Lace Scenes by Ágnes Herczeg.
Hungarian textile artist Agnes Herczeg was born in the town of Kecskemét. She graduated from the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in 1997. While studying, she has learned many traditional handicraft techniques, from embroidery and lace-making to macramé, and weaving. Creating her works, Agnes uses only with natural materials – tree branches, roots, fruits, seeds, yarns, threads, textiles, which supplement in a single composition. They seem imbued with rays of light, their stories are unusual, the embodiment of elegance and harmony. Combining innovative techniques with traditional handicraft, Agnes has created one-of-a-kind art gallery consisting of lace and ceramic, lace and wood, lace and coconut shell masterpieces. Lace-making is an extremely time consuming occupation; and it takes Agnes several days just to complete a small piece.
Technique, in which Agnes is working reminds the technique of nodular weaving, or simply – the decorative macrame. This technique is known since antiquity, even from the first knots on a stone ax and the first mat. According to some sources in Europe macrame appeared in VIII-IX centuries. This technique was known in ancient Egypt, Assyria, Iran, Peru, China, Ancient Greece.
