Born in the Bronx, Daniel J. Riccio cut his teeth in the New York City art community throughout the 1970s. Now based in East Hampton, Conn., this imaginative artist doesn’t tend to favor one medium. He crafts one-of-a-kind paintings, sculptures, jewelry and metal designs that are united by their intricacy and detail. He also offers an interesting collection of three-dimensional design and spiritual work honoring Christian and Jewish traditions, including hand-crafted dreidels, menorahs and Noah’s Ark figurines.
Riccio’s Artifacts collection is one of the most favored among his collectors, especially his variety of tiny objects inspired by his background in biology. These tiny carved figurines are minute but impactful, with an impressive level of detail accounted for in each and every piece.
