Jan Pomianowski - an outstanding artist from Kashubia

January 14, 2019 /  

Today's article presents another outstanding artist of the amber world, cooperating with the Amber Museum in Krakow and Boruni galleries. We invite you to familiarize yourself with the figure of Jan Pomianowski - an artist whose jewelry even has the Norwegian royal couple.

Jan Pomianowski was born in Gdynia, but he has lived and worked in Kashubia for over twenty years. He graduated in painting at the State College of Fine Arts, currently functioning as the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk.

He has been associated with the jewelry industry for a quarter of a century, he has been constantly developing new collections in which he often modifies style, materials, concepts and distinctions. Therefore, each jewelry has new features, which makes Jan Pomianowski's collections so sought after for uniqueness.

In designing and creating jewelry, the artist often draws inspiration from the world of fairy tales, fairy tales, as well as from his personal experiences. An example is the story of one of the rings in our collection with the image of an owl carved in amber sitting on a branch. Owls remembered from the earliest childhood, because living in a tree neighboring his family home. Probably the effect of such an approach to work are emotions, and these are positive emotions that you experience when interacting with this jewelry. In addition to the extraordinary imagination, the artist is also characterized by reliability, precision and the ability to choose the method of implementation to the assumed concept. Finished jewelry therefore consists of detailed elements, perfectly matched to the whole, creating a unique, hand-created product. All items are color and functional. This means that the artist's works, in addition to their artistic function, can and do have practical functions. A notable example is the shaving kit by Jan Pomianowski, consisting of a bowl, razor with replaceable blade and brush with natural badger hair (product available in our gallery).

The artist's commitment to his work shows his active participation in many of the most important fairs and events of the jewelery world. Jan Pomianowski participates in domestic and foreign fairs, e.g. Amberif, Inhorgenta or Tucson.

An interesting anecdote is the fact that during the visit of the Norwegian Royal Couple to Poland in 2012, the then presidential couple, the State of Komorowski, gave JKM Sonji a set by Jan Pomianowski. This set was named after the queen of Poland - Anna Jagiellon and comes from the series "Great Queens".
