NORMAN ERNSTING

SCULPTURE + 3D

ARTIST BIO

Norman’s sculptures are inspired by the artifacts of ancient civilizations.  By combining his interest in archaeology and ceramic sculpture, he creates elegant and sensual forms that have a timeless appeal.

His sculptures include animals, libation vessels, stone-age idols, anthropomorphic pots, goddess figures, amphorae, ceremonial vessels and abstract forms.  The pieces vary in height from 12 inches to 48 inches and are suitable for indoor as well as outdoor display.

Each stoneware sculpture is handcrafted and treated with oxides and stains before being fired in a gas kiln.  Sometimes an iron, copper or bronze coating is applied, and through a chemical process, aging and encrustation of the metal is produced.  The result is a patina with a time weathered look ~ like ancient relics of the past.

Norman has a studio and sculpture garden in both Cold Spring, New York and Charlotte, Vermont.
