Csongvay Blackwood – Making Waves Exhibition Past Event
Making Waves is an exhibition of the latest range of Csongvay Blackwood ceramic sculptures. These hand-built pieces are layered in a series of undulating waves, representing the dramatic forms of pandemics across human history.
The hard-edge geometries of Making Waves reference how each step towards hygiene and common good is the foundation in reducing these pandemic waves from growing into a tsunami, and by following these steps we can ultimately overcome our current COVID crisis.

Csongvay Blackwood is the combined creative expression of Csilla Csongvay and Matt Blackwood. Their artworks balance form with function to create pieces that reference the Brutalist architecture of Csilla’s childhood in Romania and Matt’s love of Mid-Century Modern.
Their design process is based on the interplay of void and fill, movement from stillness, lightness from weight, and the tensions that exist between the curve and straight, and these elements combine to form the creative foundation of Csongvay Blackwood.
All artworks are designed and made in their Melbourne studio, and have won various awards and have been commissioned to appear in a range of visual forms in galleries and public spaces across Australia and overseas.
