Glass Artist

Janusz Poźniak

Dec. 1 - Dec. 25, 2020 | Soneva Fushi

Janusz Poźniak grew up in the U.K. and started working with glass when he was 19 years old. Driven by his passion for pursuing a creative career, he moved to the U.S.A in 1991 to work alongside Dale Chihuly. This opportunity allowed him to expand his knowledge, talent, and skill for blowing glass. Throughout his career Janusz has been privileged to work with some of the most prominent glass artists in the world including Lino Tagliapietra, Dante Marioni, Sonja Blomdahl, Josiah McElheny, Dick Marquis and Preston Singletary. In addition he has travelled all over the globe to teach and mentor others, providing students with the skills, inspiration and encouragement to fulfill their own artistic visions. Janusz's work is aesthetically described as pushing the boundaries beyond form and function to abstractly reflect his own personal experiences and distill human emotion. After nearly 30 years as an artist, Janusz is still discovering new ways of experimenting and evolving his work to elevate and communicate the unique beauty of glass as an artistic medium.
