Oz, Nashville

“I fire everything in my Medallion Artist Series 2323HE kiln.”

Brian Somerville is currently the artist in residence at OZ in Nashville, TN. Somerville’s work consists primarily of sculptural animal figures that are built solid, hollowed, reassembled, and then covered with images carved by hand. His beasts are often entertaining but carry important social, political, and personal meanings.

He received his BFA from the University of Evansville in Indiana and an MFA from Florida Atlantic University. He has taught classes and workshops and worked as a commercial artist for several years.
