Brad Spencer is one of the very few artists in the world who creates sculptures from bricks. Spencer’s mediums include clay, plaster, cement, and bronze. In 1989, he began to experiment with sculpting in the brick medium that allowed him to use his experience in painting, drawing, and molding. Spencer would carve unfired clay brick material in his Reidsville studio, then deconstruct the sculpture, brick by brick, and have it fired. You have to check this out!
