Percz Janos jewelry art
Born in Budapest in 1920, Percz Janos studied at the Hungarian School of Fine Arts (1940–1946). In addition, he studied painting and graphic design under the guidance of such famous masters as Varga Nandor, Loiosh, Bori Yeno, Sidley Ferenc, and others. Janos began his career as a graphic artist, but already at that time several of his wood carved works became well known.
Between 1948-1960, he taught art design at the school of design and at the same time began to master metal work.
In the 1960s, Perz Janos showed himself as a pioneer of Hungarian metal jewelry art. So, he revised the boundaries of the use of metal structures from the point of view of art, developed it, and changed attitude to sculpture. The gallery of his works is extensive – jewelry, vases, candlesticks, ashtrays, masks, wall applications and more. All products testify to liberated and expressive imagination, and a mature approach to shaping.

He especially mastered the art of making enamel, in particular, cloisonne. His compositions of decorative copper and wrought iron speak of a certain sense of monumentality that he has developed. Medals, brooches, bracelets, necklaces and plaques, as well as sculptures, have left their mark on the history of Hungarian and world art. They invariably testified to the beauty of the combination, the skill of the performer and the ingenious ideas of the sculptor.

Percz Janos works are in the state collections of the Museum of Applied Arts and the Hungarian National Gallery in Budapest.
