It is curious how the very boldness of the medium makes the analysis of the design element difficult. Much of Urbanowicz’s glass looks as if its texture simply arrived that way by means of some natural process. Sometimes the colours, as in the Holstein Brewery project, look as if they are more an accidental by-product of the process than a carefully calculated colour scheme that works with the space. In his work it is often the details that the eye fails to perceive easily that are the secret ingredient that gives his work that indefinable quality of excellence. (…)
Tomasz Urbanowicz has done scupltures, mouldings for architectural details, classical columns, semicircular window recesses, and cast stonework. His work involves all the skills of the painter, the sculptor, and the architectural glass artist, and is almost evenly split between private and public commission.”
