Joseph Mozier (August 22, 1812 – October 3, 1870) was an American sculptor active in Italy.
He was born in Burlington, Vermont, in 1812. In 1831 he moved to New York City, where he worked as a merchant. He retired from business around 1845, and shortly afterward went to Europe, studying sculpture for several years in Florence, after which he moved to Rome.
