Saltair, UT, USAOriginally, our goal was to build a Channel Tunnel between Hungary and the US. ...Ya know,
pick and shovel, keyboard and mouse…


Then we figured, Well, why not a tunnel under all seven seas?

Eosine and Pyrogranite



Let’s repeat that one more time: Eosine and Pyrogranite. What in the world are those?
I’ll be honest here: until 5.30 this morning, I didn’t have a clue.



…But I certainly do now that I churned out two articles having to do with the Zsolnay Ceramics Factory and its products. You’ll also notice that I totally fell for the stuff and spread little bits of it all over the English pages of Puszta.com.


SO what are they, then?


Eosine
– an exotic and prized, highly durable, mother-of-pearl, 'reflective-metallic', iridescent glaze developed and used in the Zsolnay factory.


Pyrogranite
– an extremely compact, high-fire, frost resistant ceramic used for beautifully decorated roofing tiles, building façade ornaments, and architectural sculpture.


Read all about them, find out where you could see some of them, and learn how, where, and when you would have the opportunity to make your own Zsolnay ware and take it home:
