Ania Pakowska is an accomplished artist of over 30 years standing; seventeen of which have been involved in mosaic. From her Studio outside Warsaw, she designs and creates intricate mosaics which are both beautiful and functional. They are highly detailed in their design, professionally executed and presented.
We were in awe when we first caught sight of Ania`s mosaic mirrors and were delighted when she agreed to showcase her Collection here on Acolyte.
`I am setting my standards as high as I can reach and always try to move them higher. I am always trying to be creative, not copying my own, even very successful items`.
Mosaics in one form or another occupy Ania`s working day on a full time basis. When not working on commissions, she teaches the Art of Mosaic and its techniques to students at her ARP-STUDIO.
`For many years I did my mosaics for my own pleasure, selling them occasionally from my studio, then I decided to share my experiences while teaching methods and techniques of mosaic. Both customers and my students liked my work so I decided to promote it wider`.
Ania has an M.A in Anthropology of Culture and has also studied History of Art - she has worked and studied alongside her husband Wojtek Pakowski and the couple have received Art grants from the USA, Sweden and Germany. Wojtek, incidentally, is a professional artist, painter, Master Printmaker and Sculptor. Their collaborative work available to view here on Acolyte Home & Gifts is a Limited Edition Chess Set; the board is Ania`s mosaic and the Chess pieces themselves are sculpted and cast in bronze by Wojtek.
`I gather my inspirations from different cultures, as I am an anthropologist of culture and art historian - I have a very wide background that helps me ground my designs`
Ania`s range can be personalised; using Wojtek`s skills, customised metal plaques can be inscribed with messages and / or meaningful dates to give each purchase a meaningful touch to its recipient.
Ania also offers a commissioning service for house number plaques - an ideal gift for those moving into a new home or those who want to add that finishing touch to their new - build.
Purchases arrive gift-wrapped and shipping can be arranged to most countries - please contact Ania for confirmation.
