Brad Spencer is one of the very few artist in the world who creates sculptures from bricks. A BFA in Painting and Drawing from UNCG and an MFA in Sculpture, Brad has been a working sculptor since 1984. During his undergraduate work in painting, he took sculpture as an elective course, through which he discovered his calling.

Spencer’s mediums include clay, plaster, cement and bronze. In 1989 he began to experiment with bas relief sculpture in the brick medium that allowed him to use his experience in painting, drawing and sculpture. Spencer would carve unfired clay brick material in his Reidsville studio, then deconstruct the sculpture, brick by brick and have it fired. He would then reconstruct the sculpture using the fired bricks with mortar at the site of installation. He likes to involve the public when he reconstructs his work, even allowing onlookers to set a brick or two.
