Born in 1944 in Budapest, Gyöny Laky was formally trained in fiber arts and basketry at University of California at Berkeley. She attended both her undergraduate and graduate MFA program and soon after several years of practice and teaching she became the Professor Emerita at UC Davis. She founded Fiberworks Central for Textile Art in Berkeley and continues to practice with fiber and wood as preferred mediums. I enjoy her site-specific installations but most of all, her well-crafted vessels are dynamite!
