Enzo Torcoletti

Enzo Torcoletti was born in Italy and attended art school there before he moved to Canada where he received a B.A. in English Literature and a B.F.A. in Sculpture and Printmaking from the University of Windsor in 1969. In 1971, he completed his M.F.A. in Sculpture from Florida State University. That same year he moved to St. Augustine, Florida, where he still resides. He maintains sculpture studios in St. Augustine and in Italy.

Enzo Torcoletti an innovative young sculptor with traditional ethics of workmanship. He creates vibrant sculptures in stone, wood, and other materials, completing each step of the process himself – from the design sketches to the finished casting. Because Enzo is involved in the entire sculpture sequence from conception to exhibition, the finished piece is truly his creation.

Despite the economic pressure to streamline production that faces most sculptors, Enzo maintains complete control over his artistic sculpture output and has mastered the skills he needs to avoid subcontracting portions of the sculpture work. For bronze work he will make his own plaster model, a mold, and then the appropriate wax model from which to cast the bronze – sand casting, lost wax process or specialized techniques and equipment.
