Staff report

Meet internationally renowned glass artist Wiktor Borowski at Boca’s Sklar Furnishings this month.

The artist will be at the store from noon to 4 p.m. on May 27.

Borowski will meet, greet and sign Glasstudio Borowski sculptures previously acquired at Sklar Furnishings and those purchased during the afternoon at the showroom and design center located at 6300 N. Federal Highway.

Borowski is the owner of Glasstudio Borowski. He comes from a family of glass artists. Numerous masterpieces created by his father Stanislaw Borowski and brothers, Pawel and Stani Jan Borowski, are exhibited in renowned international galleries, private collections and museums such as the Corning Museum of Glass in New York.

“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 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 said, “There is the completely emotional aspect: an often quite spontaneous excitement at the wealth of ideas, the explosion of colors, 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 colorful unique pieces has undergone such a complex production process.”
