Proctor Table

 

Phil Proctor is well known for his large-scale public art. But the Atlanta sculptor also produces smaller sculptures and tables for not so public places, like your home.

The artist & background: Proctor grew up in Lucedale, Miss, and graduated with a degree in sculpture from the University of Southern Mississippi. He then went on to earn a master’s degree from East Carolina (NC) before traveling throughout Europe studying and building outdoor sculptures at artist symposiums. In 2002, he moved to Atlanta.

The company: Nucleus Sculpture Studio, started in 2010, is based in an 11,000-square-foot facility in south Atlanta.

The main goods: Large-scale, outdoor public artwork. But Proctor produces smaller, one-of-a kind metal and stone sculptures, lighting and tables.

Fun requests: Has been involved with the movie industry for about 12 years, doing prop fabrication on various projects, including “The Hunger Games,” “Fast and Furious” and “Vacation.”

Claim to fame: Some custom work for actot-director-producer Tyler Perry and Tyler Perry Studios. Also was told that former Vice President Al Gore purchased several of his stone tables.

Latest project: A 25-foot-tall outdoor sculpture, titled “Avonlea,” which marks the entrance to the Quintus Development Group in Suwanee, GA.
