Daniel P. Kronberg
Mr. Kronberg has been sculpting since he was seven years old. He remembers carving totem poles from fruit crates at the grocery store where his father worked in New York City.
He attended New York University on scholarship and studied in their industrial arts program. In September of 1964, he began a four-year apprenticeship with the Danish Silversmith, Inc. in Providence, Rhode Island. He also enrolled in classes at the Rhode Island School of Design, studying jewelry design at night. He worked long hours as an apprentice, perfecting his skills making models, molds, and waxes. Daniel discovered his passion for miniature work and was captivated by working small and in great detail.
Today, Mr. Kronberg’s sculptures include limited editions of fifteen different works. Sculptures are available in limited editions of 250 in bronze, 30 in sterling silver and 3 in 18k solid gold. New works are created each year for the limited edition series. Mr. Kronberg is also constantly creating custom work. Recent commissions include collaborative work with internationally renowned knife maker Owen Wood, designing and sculpting for a rose dagger and a stallion-handled sword cane, as well as a two-foot high bucking horse mascot for the New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, New Mexico. He accepts sculpture commissions from miniature to monumental.
