Ted Abramczyk was trained as an architect, and received his B. Arch. from the Pratt Institute. While completing his architectural apprenticeship at Davis Brody and Associates, he began to make sculpture, and in 1991, after winning a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, Abramczyk left architectural practice to concentrate on art and design full time. Abramczyk's work was represented by Bess Cutler Gallery, and was featured in a number of group shows, including $pent: Currency, Security, and Art on Deposit at the New Museum for Contemporary Art. In 1996 he founded Abramczyk Studio, a Bushwick-based design firm that specializes in designing and handcrafting custom fixtures for both residential and commercial clients. Abramczyk's art and architecture background is evident in his fixtures, which evolve out of variations on a geometric theme, and aim to unite functionality with the aesthetics of a glowing sculptural object. He joined Ralph Pucci in 2012.
