Nate Ricciuto’s projects merge sculpture, glass, image and performative objects in envisioning bodily experience, craft and imagination as existing in the odd space between the technical and the intuitive. Nate is currently a Visiting Lecturer at The Ohio State University and an instructor at Columbus College of Art & Design in Columbus, OH. His work has recently been exhibited at Weston Art Gallery (Cincinnati, OH), Islip Art Museum (Islip, NY), S12 Galleri (Bergen, Norway), ICEBOX Project Space (Philadelphia, PA), Pilot+Projects (Philadelphia, PA) and ROYGBIV (Columbus, OH) among others. Nate earned an MFA from Tyler School of Art in 2015, and holds a BFA from The Ohio State University. He has been an Artist in Residence at Pilchuck Glass School and a Creative Glass Center of America Fellow. In 2017, Nate was the recipient of the Irvin Boroswky Prize in Glass Arts Juror’s Choice Award, and was selected for an Individual Excellence Award from the Ohio Arts Council.
