About Noce

Hand carved from the richly marked cream-coloured Sienna Travertine, this contemporary tabletop sculpture of a walnut tree is by Doug Robinson. The Canadian sculptor is known for his exceptionally beautiful work in Europe and here in Canada.
As a young man, Robinson first came to Italy to train with master sculptors in the 1970s. Since then, the Canadian artist has lived and worked in a studio nestled amidst olive groves and next to the mountains where the famous Carrera marble is found. Noce means walnut in Italian.

“I’m just one of these people that don’t pre-plan the sculpture. I don’t make models like you are supposed to.” Doug Robinson

Doug Robinson studied sculpture at the Ontario College of Art and Design, the University of Guelph and in Italy. His work—sculptures in limestone, travertine and marble have been exhibited in France, Germany, London, Montreal and Prince Edward County, Ontario.
