As a stimulative, group-forming artist, Imre Schrammel began to be concerned in the 1960s with organic abstraction and fire-clay materials fired at high temperatures. Later he became interested in the spontaneous shaping and expressiveness of types of porcelain. He expresses life-giving and destroying energies symbolically in compositions with a monumental effect. These include sculptural and relief works, and since the 1980s, figurative, mythical nudes.

Schrammel studied under Miklós Borsos at the Porcelain Department at the Hungarian College of Applied Arts. He worked as artistic adviser at the Hollóháza Porcelain Factory from 1959-62 and has taught at several institutions, including the Hungarian College of Applied Arts and the Janus Pannonius University in Pécs, where he helped to establish the Fine Arts Master Training Institute and was appointed Professor in 1991.

He also served as rector of the Hungarian College of Applied Arts from 1993-99 and has worked as artistic adviser at the Herend Porcelain Manufactory since 1996. Schrammel has become well known for his relief murals and figurative sculpture, and since the 1980s, figurative, mythical nudes.

'It is more worthwhile to refer to ceramics if the art is seen as subsidiary or viewed from an outside vantage point. The question is what direction to take within the activity, where someone should tread an individual path through the luxuriant jungle. There is a possible approach: people battle for survival with their environment on several planes. This battle becomes imbued into their cells and appears in all their creative and non-creative gestures. They select in this battle and identify ingenuous, indifferent and inimical formations, objects and media. The nature of these depends closely on personality, place, time and so on. However, there exist primeval experiences that are retained in people' s cells as an inheritance and match in an eerie way the cultures of distant peoples and even the things that children create anew. I suspect that is why the shaping of materials may be akin to things found independently on faraway continents. It is possible to build on these "underlying cases" if a solution to our current state of confusion is sought in the direction of synthesis'

He is a member of the Kecskemét Group (the first international group of ceramic artists) since 1980, and a founder member of the Hungarian Academy of Arts in 1993 and the TERRA Group in 1991.
