Nathan Scott

 

Born and raised in Victoria, BC, in a military family, Nathan Scott learned that whatever he does, he must do well and according to schedule. He had a keen interest in mechanics, worked as an aircraft engineer, and spent a few years in the gold fields of the North working heavy equipment as well as working on the Alaska Highway.
He found a lost love for art, pursued sculpture, and began to recognize that he truly had a God-given gift to sculpt. Over time, he learned cold cast bronze, which is a fibreglass structure coated with bronze powder, which looks, feels, and acts like bronze for a fraction of the price. Over a few years, Nathan learned foundry-work and eventually opened his own bronze foundry where he currently works, creating every step of sculpting in bronze.
Nathan's most well-known 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.
Most of Nathan's sculptures reflect his love for people, young and old, interacting with their particular situations and surroundings. Through his sculptures, Nathan hopes to take you back to a simpler life of days gone by with loved ones, family and friends.
