This time we had new challenge "Design a Dog which fit Chinese Market". There are certain differences between typical Chinese dog and most common dog in Europe, especial in Europe many different breeds e.g. German Shepherd, Rottweiler, Beagle, Bulldog, Doberman, Dalmatian or West Highland and none of them can easily find in China.
So we go ahead to sketch main elements like a proper shape of body and right shape of the head.
Yes, let's do this way
Starting from body
Starting from 2014 we developed special customized color dedicated to China market. You would be very surprised how many different tests we have done in the past to find out the one, the right RED which our Customers like so much.
Durable, Solid Body
Solid.., heavy.., stable.., - we are considering a lot of issues before making a decision, but one priority is durability for an object. None of the Customer could be happy if art glass piece broke after few days at home. We do care, so Borowski products are very solid and durable.
During the hot process production usually, there are 2-3 people works on one object at the same time.
Shaping a Tail
... and that's the secret of an artist of how to make a tail and the same time to keep charm, proudness, and elegance.
Happiness at work
Happiness comes from creation process. When your ideas transform into reality often you can observe certain satisfaction which usually makes you happy - that's what we feel very often.
Time to make a head
Start with The Ball
Starting with a small ball; through the 1,100 degrees transforming grainy red and orange tiny glass pieces to the perfectly smooth surface of "Buddy" head.
The dog must have an own expression, so even smile belong to those small details which make Buddy be desire by "his new Owner".
Searching for balance in the right proportion, not too big, not too small. The head must match to the size of the body.
Focus on Creation
Chris quote: "I was there, I can see how artists focusing on each of the art object. They input so much heart into each single creation process, just with a purpose to make that object to "Be A Life".
Two upturned ears and proudly nose well match with black-grey pigment makes Buddy with very fresh vivid outlook.
Each of our artist care about each of detail - Perfection is a part of our motto, we do believe that's the Thing which Customer love from Borowski.
Each element right after hot processing needs to stay in a special furnace for 12-24 hours to cool down and release tension from a glass. Annealing is very necessary to keep art object safe to avoid breakage by inner glass tension cause.
After body and head are annealed there is a whole long cold process, which starts from cutting, polishing, assembling, gluing, quality checking and packing at the end.
The Body and the Head need to be cut at the right angle to fit together. Later they will be glue in proper position.
Both parts polished well so it can be ready for assembling process.
After gluing, elements need to remove the over-leaked glue. We use the most durable, the strongest glue for glass connection in the whole world.
Before any of art piece leaving Borowski Studio, it must go through very strict Quality Checking Inspection.
Each product packed carefully into individual boxes protected by Instapack Technology (USA) which the best protection for glass products.
This is the final effect after another few days of processing. Now, "Buddy" is ready to find the new owner.

The Animalia Collection
The Animalia collection includes 5 wild vases created, numbered and signed by Stani Jan Borowski. Each of these exquisite pieces is composed of multilayered clear and coloured glass, using highly sophisticated techniques of both hot and cold glass processing.
The body of the vase is mouth blown and modeled while in a hot state. In the next phase, several fine applications are attached to the glowing item as it obtains its final form. The vase must then cool for hours before it can undergo several rounds of polishing, then frosting. Finally, to complete the object, it is decorated with 24 carat gold.
