(1941-) Studied ornamental painting in the Hungarian Academy of Crafts and Design under the guidance of Gyorgy Z. Gacs who established the higher education of glass design at the same institute. Mr Bohus is considered as one of the founding members of the modern Hungarian glassmaking movement. He is a university professor since 1993 and head of the department from 1993 to 1996.

 

Both during and after the academic years, his works displayed his experimental nature with materials and technology, and fascination with basic forms as a representative of neo-constructivist, minimalist sculpture. He won numerous international prizes, many major glass museums have his works in their collections including the Corning Museum of Glass (USA), Kunstmuseum Dusseldorf (Germany), and Musee des arts Decoratifs, Lausanne (Switzerland).
