Glass Studio Borowski was founded in 1990 by renowned glass artist Stanislaw Borowski whose works have been internationally exhibited for 25 years in major glass museums.
In 1993 Stanislaw’s sons, Stani Jan, Wiktor and Pawel Borowski, took the helm of the glass studio. In addition to Stanislaw’s own one-of-a-kind objects, they now design a collection of studio glass that is “contemporary, young and thrilling.” It has become popular with art and glass collectors worldwide.
Stani and Pawel Borowski’s collection of work is known for its unusual shapes and bright colors. Their works are bold, fresh, creative and avant-garde. Their Collections include the “Artist Editions” which are a small series of exceptional “Art Objects” skillfully crafted and unique.
The “Studio Line” features imaginative, amusing objects: plump, friendly birds or fantasy creatures that happen to be candle-holders, fruit bowls, vases and paperweights.
The “Outdoor Objects” Collection includes friendly figures and whimsical creatures taken from another world. Imagine a four-foot tall chameleon made of glass and steel that can be placed on your balcony or in your garden. All glass items are hand made using complex hot and cold techniques.
The Borowski Family has created a special niche with their distinctive unique vision of high quality glass sculptures and has gained worldwide recognition.
