István Buzás was born on 21st March 1965 in Celldömölk, Kemenesalja.

The arts have attracted him since he was a child. He started in Herend as a porcelain painter in 1979. He graduated in 1982 and worked as a Chinese motif painter and gilder until 1990. Between 1990 and the autumn of 1995 he worked at the Augarten Porcelain Manufactory in Vienna.

On account of his experience and expertise he currently holds the position of foreman of the gilding section at the Herend Porcelain Manufactory. 

His most significant pieces are the Berlin vase (2002), the EU, UN and the Opera Vase, platters and vases made for the Sultan of Oman, as well as the 2006 and 2007 Formula One prize vases.

His outstanding work was acknowledged with a “Craft Award” in 2004.

Painting is his work and hobby, which he continuously polishes at the Herend Art Studio. He is interested in music and has been playing in a band for 26 years.

For labour reasons he lives in Herend with his three underage children.
