George Timock’s current work is inspired by his research and time in Hungary. Hungarian porcelain, with its purity and clarity, provides the canvas for examination of the influence of Eastern European architecture and culture. Opulence and decay receive equal consideration in his deeply layered and textured vessels. Timock earned his BFA (1968) and MFA (1971) at Cranbrook Academy of Art, Michigan. He spent the summers of 2008 – 2015 at an international residency in Hungary. Timock taught for 43 years at Kansas City Art Institute; he retired in 2015.
