Jancik Arts International Unveils Innovative Art Glass
Technique at HD Boutique Show in Miami
Faux Casted Glass Radiates Contemporary Feel, at Affordable Cost

ATLANTA, GA and OCALA, FL – August 25, 2008 –  Jancik Arts International (JAI), creators of award-winning stained glass ceiling domes for the hospitality industry, will introduce a new technique in glass art at the HD Boutique Expo & Conference in Miami Beach, September 17 and 18, 2008.   Faux casted glass offers an ultra contemporary look, requires minimal lighting and costs less than authentic casted glass with a shorter production time.* 

During the show, JAI will give away a 12" x 18" x 1/2" thick starfire crystal glass panel in a prize drawing.  Stop by the JAI booth #535 to see samples of this brilliant new application and to register for the prize. 

JAI is among the first company to introduce faux casted glass to the market.  “I am really excited about offering faux casted glass to our clients,” said JAI Chief Designer, Angelique Jackson.  “The process is very unique – It has a relief feel to it and the design can be as intricate or as simple as you desire.  The design is literally brought to life by using edged lighting, which causes the design to radiate from within.”

Faux casted glass is perfect for interior spaces, divider screens and booth dividers in lobbies and restaurants and other low lit areas requiring just the right touch of glass.  Designs can be custom crafted to meet the requirements of the interior environment. 

In addition to faux casted glass, JAI will showcase their stained glass ceiling domes, for which they are best known.   JAI’s award-winning domes grace the atriums of 20 luxury cruise ships, the most recent being The Ruby, which sets sail in October.  JAI domes are also found in private residences and commercial environments across the globe.

In the booth, show attendees can view a small scale model of one of JAI’s masterful ceiling domes created for the Rafiee residence.*  This exquisite dome is reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright work.  JAI will also have a small scale 18-inch curved panel to demonstrate authentic stained glass in the booth.
