Meet Internationally Renowned Glass Artist Wiktor Borowski At Sklar Furnishings On Sunday, May 27th
Wiktor Borowski, the owner of Glasstudio Borowski, shares that his family has long contributed significantly to the Studio Glass Movement, a young and exciting art form that has been in continual development and of increasing importance since the 1960s. Citing that by the 1970s his father Stanislaw Borowski (born in 1944 in Moutiers, France) had already gained international respect and recognition with his engravings and sculptures, Wiktor Borowski shares that now Borowski glass manufacture ranks among the most acclaimed artistic glass studios in the world. Numerous masterpieces created by Wiktor's father and brothers, Pawel and Stani Jan Borowski, are now exhibited in renowned international galleries, private collections and museums such as the Corning Museum of Glass in New York, certainly the most important Glass Museum in the world.
"As our clients shop our exclusive furniture lines they customize for their homes, they are immediately smitten by Borowski's brilliant colors, magical whimsy and ingenuity they spot throughout our showroom," said Rick Howard, co-owner and president Sklar Furnishings that has long featured an extensive, varied array of Glasstudio Borowski exclusives. "Those who visit love how each Borowski piece can be become part of their daily lives, as eye-catching, purposeful home accessories as fruit bowls, vases, candle-holders and lamps or as captivating focal points in gardens or on terraces."
When asked why international buyers and collectors value Borowski masterpieces and studio artistic art glass, Borowski shares that "there is the completely emotional aspect: an often quite spontaneous excitement at the wealth of ideas, the explosion of colours, this zest for life that these works embody. Every single one of them – be it a masterpiece, one of a collection or edition – is a quite special, unmistakable, life-affirming art concept, unique to Borowski, and is hard to match. It is therefore all the more fascinating that each and every one of these light, bright and colourful unique pieces has undergone such a complex production process."
Borowski adds that it is "because it is an old and demanding skill that only very few manufacturers today possess, I believe that is exactly the attraction for collectors and art-lovers – this special quality: the unique mixture of craft skills and joie de vivre! No other material plays with light, colour and form to such an extent, or appears to forge such a natural connection with its environment. Even its production seems to be almost magical – from sandy raw materials to crystal clear beauty."
"They embody our artists' wealth of ideas and the craft skills of our glassmakers in equal measure," continued Borowski. "Each piece in the collection has been worked with great love and care and meets the highest quality demands. With Art Objects, Studio Line and Outdoor Objects we can pass on our fascination for glass."
