Michael Boroniec is a Pittsfield-based artist who uses ceramics as his primary medium. After receiving a degree in ceramics from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2006, he retuned to his native Berkshires to teach and work. His vessels are wheel-thrown and then deconstructed, creating unusual textures, ribbon effects, and a different perception of gravity. His pieces have been featured locally, at the Berkshire Museum and the Ferrin Gallery, as well as in New York City at the Lyons Weir Gallery. Michael's work has been selected for the New York Ceramic and Glass Fair for the past 3 years.
