Tom hill

There's a good boy!

Tom Hill is a self-taught sculptor who for the last 10 years has been working with recycled horseshoes to create life size animal sculptures. Tom utilises a gas forge, anvil and hammer as well as various welding techniques to heat and shape the horseshoes to create his sculptures.

Tom is skilled in equine sculpture but has also created a wide range of sculptures such as hedgehogs, squirrels, ducks, herons, swans, pigs, hares, badgers, different breeds of dogs, lions, cheetahs, stags, camels, horses and elephants, all of which are life size. We are happy to help Tom bring these sculptures to life by giving them a nice coat of paint from our in house paint shop!

To date much of Tom's work has been sold internationally with pieces going as far as America and Canada.

Tom has an ambition to create a 30ft rearing horse made from horseshoes, but he is just looking for the right place for it to be exhibited.
