Brick as Art
The use of brick as sculptured art is a centuries-old tradition. Brick structures in the Middle East include elements of sculpture that have endured for 2,000 years or more. Today, architects and designers can add dimension and style to new construction or remodeling projects by incorporating a brick sculpture. The possibilities are virtually unlimited. General Shale’s Masonart® brick sculpting capabilities include a line of standard painted and unpainted murals, as well as custom design services to provide ideas and support. Our award-winning on-staff sculptor, Johnny Hagerman, can create one-of-a-kind, three-dimensional brick sculptures from original drawings.
Hagerman, one of the country’s foremost brick sculptors, has been perfecting the art of brick sculpting since the mid-1980s. Since then, he has created masterpieces for a multitude of large companies nationwide, including the Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.
At General Shale, we know that our customers want to enhance the beauty of their homes and businesses with the long-lasting durability of brick, and our Masonart® offers even more versatility for a look that will stand the test of time.
