Biography from Puccio Fine Art:
An artist inspired by the human form, Paul Puccio is a sculptor in marble, bronze and steel who began taking an interest in the shaping of stone when he was barely five years old.  Also, he has invented and patented, both in the United States and Italy, a system enabling stone to be structurally fortified so as to create forms and designs never before possible.

Motivated by a fascination for the natural beauty, he was born in Sicily in June 1934. Aside from following in the footsteps his father and grandfather in the marble industry, he also followed the path to which he felt drawn, that of art and sculpture. He became fascinated with creating the primary forms in the most beautiful materials appropriate for a sculptor: marble, onyx, and other semi-precious stones.

Paul Puccio emigrated to America with his family in 1950.  A short time later, his father Giuseppe Puccio started Puccio Marble & Onyx, Inc., a business dedicated to the working of marble and other semiprecious stones.

Of his work Paul Puccio said:  "It is a moving experience to be inspired by something precious, like the figure of a woman or the beauties of nature, and to immortalize it in marble or onyx.  The true splendor of stone is to be found under the dark rough exterior of the block."

Under Paul Puccio's artistic direction and under the executive direction of his brother John, the Puccio family has created a gallery that showcases their life’s work, The Metropolitan Design Center, located at 271 Metropolitan Avenue, in Brooklyn, New York.
