My name is Norbert Viola, I live in Slovakia in a small city called Nové Zámky. I studied Information technology and worked in different IT positions for big multinational companies for more than 20 years.


I am interested in handmade pottery since 2011. Growing bonsai trees and an effort to create an own bonsai pot brought me to the world of pottery. I took pottery classes at a Centre For Folk Art Production (ÚĽUV) and after that I opened a small pottery studio at my house. 


I make hand thrown stoneware  pottery, fired in electric kiln to 1240 oC (2264 oF) and also in wood fired kiln to 1350 oC (2462 oF).
