Victoria's Nathan Scott has been awarded an Art Project to Honour Firefighters
A bronze sculpture of a masked firefighter will be installed at the new Brighouse Fire Hall No.1 in Richmond, British Columbia.
Victoria, B.C., Oct. 16, 2015 – Canadian figurative sculptor Nathan Scott has been commissioned to design and create a masked firefighter hauling a fire hose while holding an axe, by the Richmond City council. A maquette is available for photographing.
The sculpture was approved unanimously by the council and was chosen over 18 other artist submissions. Eric Fiss, public art planner, stated that this piece will, “enhance the sense of community, place and civic pride.”
Nathan Scott will be crafting the sculpture in his very own foundry and studio based on the Peninsula of Vancouver Island.
Nathan's most well-know pieces are of Terry Fox (Mile 0) in Victoria, BC, 'The Homecoming', which is a sculpture commemorating the 100th Anniversary for the Canadian Navy and displayed downtown Victoria, and the bench people in Sidney, BC. "Sculpting for the public is one of the most satisfying parts of my business,” says Scott, and explains “I get to see how people react and interact with the piece.”
