As a sculptor of considerable note in Budapest, Laszlo Ispanky fled Hungary during the Revolution of 1956 and emigrated to the United States. Drawn to the increasingly respected Cybis Porcelain Art Studio, he joined the studio in 1960 and soon became its Master Sculptor.
Often referred to as “The Living Master,” Ispanky became internationally renowned while at Cybis producing works displayed at museums and renowned sites around the world. His 48 State Flower Bouquet for the 1964 World’s Fair is still unmatched in the porcelain world. In 1966, he left Cybis an opened Ispanky Porcelains Ltd, just outside of Trenton, New Jersey where he continued producing works of art until his passing in 2010.
