Characteristic, uncompromising, perfect.

When, right after graduation, he started working as a designer at the “Ząbkowice” glassworks, and then at “Staszic”, he faced difficult tasks. Training the crew from scratch, making himself stand out, finding his own recognisable style, and original identity as a designer. He succeeded perfectly.

On the collector’s market, characteristic “Fiedorowiczes” are easily found by fans of the design from the Polish People’s Republic.
His designs – both industrial and artistic – have entered the canon of Polish glass classics.
