Wood manufacturer, artist partner on showpiece

Brooten, MN --International artist, Andrzej J. Olejniczak, and wood turning manufacturer, Glacial Wood Products (GWP), recently completed a unique geometric work of art that will be displayed in a European Art Show in November of 2011.

Olejniczak has been an artist for over 25 years. His success is rooted in his ability to simultaneously merge his imagination between applied arts and fine arts. When asked what his inspiration for the project was, Olejniczak described it as a, “result of searching for the unexpected within simplicity in the world of geometry.”

Olejniczak explained how hard it was to find a wood turning partner to work with. “Many times the collaborating party would show little interest in production of a single piece that required so much attention to detail and precision in execution," he said. "I’m known to be very particular about the execution of my projects and it was a very new experience for me to work long distance without the ability to oversee every stage of development.”

GWP has a reputation of inviting designers to challenge them with their most unique and intricate turns. Dick Johnson, owner of GWP, seized the opportunity. He said the unique piece of art that Olejniczak had designed, “utilized many of our skills in high tech wood turning capabilities.”

Olejniczak is looking forward to continuing his collaboration with GWP. While describing his experience in receiving the final piece, he said, “it not only met all my expectations it surpassed them. It was peerlessly executed.”

More pictures will be available after Olejniczak’s European Art show this coming November and will proudly be displayed on both Olejniczak’s websites and GWP’s.
