Michael Boroniec (b. 1983) is an American sculptor who resides and works in Berkshire County, Massachusetts for its culturally rich history, natural surroundings, and family. Boroniec received a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 2006 with a concentration in ceramic material. His work focuses on ceramic as a dialog between the historical and contemporary implications of clay as a fine art material. Though Michael’s primary material is clay, he has also found success in painting and print making.
