In the following video we can have a look on the initiative of a Romany master of applied arts, Mihály Pálfi. The traditional profession of his family has also contributed to create a new branch of art.
Mihály Pálfi’s family has a long standing reputation of being excellent tinkers in Hódmezővásárhely (South-East Hungary). In building eaves or forming an accurate expert’s report on the construction of new buildings, the Pálfi family has been a reliable partner. Unfortunately, due to an illness some years ago, the life of the head of the family has changed dramatically: he had to abandon his vocation. He began to work in the social employment where he met again the tin-works. But he did not make eaves but ornaments. He learned, trained himself, and soon he was considered a huge talent. In our film we show that Mihály Pálfi has created a new branch of art.
