Glass Magazine Recognizes JAI’s Head-Turning Craftsmanship in Cover Contest

ATLANTA, GA and OCALA, FL – May 13, 2008 –  Jancik Arts International (JAI), creators of stunning stained glass ceiling domes, was recently recognized by Glass Magazine for their work aboard the Ocean Princess cruise ship.  The celebrated dome, located in the ship’s main atrium, measures 30 feet in diameter and lends visual drama to the lobby.  The magnanimous dome depicts a whimsical pattern of ocean waves featuring an art nouveau theme in subtle ambers, pale greens and blues.

“More than 30 companies submitted over 100 photographs for our inaugural cover contest for decorative glass,” said Matt Slovick, editor and chief of Glass Magazine. “Jancik Arts International’s entry of glass ceiling dome aboard the Ocean Princess cruise ship was a head turner and won honorable mention and a place in the photo gallery on our Web site”

“The Ocean Princess dome is one of my all time favorites.   It took us almost 6 months to complete. from the initial design to installation,” notes JAI’s President and Chief Designer,  Angelique Jackson.  “The massive size of the dome and light colors with neon backlighting gives a sense of a conservatory, inviting natural light into the space.”
