The City of Southlake's iconic shield is being created by NSG's Joe Norman. The clay was rushed off to the foundry so that a number of these shields will be ready for city buildings this Winter. The finished product will be cast Stainless Steel, and Joe's sculpted the shield in a couple sizes.
The National Sculptors 'Guild is pleased to announce our newest Affiliate member, Joe Norman.
Joe graduated with a degree in Product Design from Stanford and worked with design consulting firms for a number of years before teaching middle school and customizing vintage motorcycles. For the past ten years he has been a full-time sculptor, focusing on handmade and site-specific works informed by the intersection of the natural and human-made environment.
Joe was the Artist-In-Residence at Great Basin National Park and frequently speaks on art and its role in social justice. His work is in permanent public and private collections across the United States. He currently maintains his studio at Artworks Loveland.
We're excited by Joe Norman's diverse exploration of material and imaginative approach to varied subject matter. From word play, to morphing silhouettes; magnified microcosms to figurative renderings from reclaimed bicycle parts, Joe fills the public space with a bit more wonder through sophisticated form. His work makes interaction unavoidable and we're pleased to add him to our team.
Smaller works are also available for the home collector. You'll start seeing Joe's sculpture at Columbine Gallery and in the National Sculptors' Guild sculpture garden by mid-October, and can start ordering online now.... click here to shop
