More From AAPA Journal Article

Pereny was born in Manhattan, the son of Arnold Perenyi, who immigrated from Hungary in 1906 with his wife Mary and children Louis and Anna. Son Frank was born soon after their arrival, and Andrew in 1908. Arnold was later described as a "commercial artist" but in the 1910 census was listed as a house painter. At some point the "I" was dropped from the family name, possibly when they moved to Detroit, where Andrew attended school. By 1927 he was working for Flint Faience Tile, a subsidiary of AC Sparkplug in Flint, Michigan, as a designer and installer. By his own account he assisted in the design and production of the tile installation at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., but unfortunately none of this tile work is visible in the renovated hotel today. No other specific individual tile designs have been attributed to Pereny. While at Flint Faience, he was urged by a co-worker to attend Ohio State University to learn more about ceramics. This was undoubtedly John D. Whitmer, who was an OSU graduate in ceramic engineering and had worked at American Encaustic Tile in Zanesville before going to Flint Faience, where he remained until its closing in 1933. By that time Pereny had graduated from Ohio State with a B.F.A. in ceramic art, continuing in graduate school for a year but never obtaining an advanced degree. To help finance his way through college, Pereny began making artware and ceramic sculpture in a small building on Pearl St. or Pearl Alley, a dozen blocks from the Ohio State University campus. Aided by his wife, Ruth Koons, a cardiologist whom he married in 1933 and who also helped her husband in the pottery, Pereny continued artware production. The ware was sold through prominent outlets such as Lazarus, J. L. Hudson Co., Macy's, and Gimbels, until 1938, when the company was sold to W I. Tycer. According to Pereny, he learned ceramic engineering by osmosis. In 1935 he established the Pereny Equipment Company to manufacture custom-designed high temperature industrial furnaces and ceramic kilns, both electric and fuel fired. Realizing that developing innovations in this field was more profitable than making art pottery, Pereny continued to operate the company through World War II, during which he rose to the rank of Major. He also developed several patents, including a power-driven laboratory ball mill and a variable speed potter's wheel, as well Pereny in his studio. From The Ohio State University Monthly, February 1935. Pereny trivet. 5 1/2 inch diameter. as ceramic typewriter keys. Much of Pereny's art ware is marked with a distinctive triangular logo, and a similar logo continues to be used by the Pereny Equipment Company to this day. Pereny used a simple scheme for shape numbering, with vases being numbered consecutively at least as high as V-34. A B-8 bowl is also known, but many pieces lack shape numbers. In addition to his orange to yellow flambé glaze, which is the most commonly seen, he used a variety of high gloss and semi-matt glazes, bright Egyptian blue, a light blue, a very light green, gun-metal, and a reddishyellow ochre. A few pieces illustrate a problem with consistency of glaze thickness or pooling and even occasional fingerprints. Both white and red clays were used. While many pieces are hand thrown, others are molded, especially the more complicated figurines.
