About

Large Raku Sculpture with Woman Figures Size:49"x22"x10" Signed and dated title. Mr. Kemenyffy was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1943 in the midst of World War II. His father was serving in the war effort during his birth, and Steven and his mother would not be reunited with his father until 1949. During the interim, Kemmenyffy and his mother lived with an aunt, Margit Gosztonyi, who worked as a potter in Baden-Baden Germany. Kemenyffy’s family immigrated to Illinois in 1951. Kemenyffy lived in Rock Island until 1964, having earned a BS in Mathematics at the nearby Augustana College (Illinois). Kemenyffy’s interest in becoming a ceramic artist began shortly after college when he attended a Peter Voulkos workshop. Kemenyffy then began ceramic studies at the University of Iowa where he met his wife and artistic collaborator, Susan Hale Kemenyffy. Steven received a Master of Fine Arts in Ceramics in 1967, Susan in Printmaking in the same year. They were married in 1970. After receiving his MFA, Steven taught at multiple institutions, including the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the University of Colorado at Boulder, Penland School of Crafts, and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts.
