Drinking HorseStainless Steel
175cm x 50cm x 80cm
Edition of 8 - £17,500
Drinking Horse is an iconic form that has been used over many years by various artists to capture the relationship that man has had with this graceful animal in all aspects of our lives. I have made this form in various materials and sizes, based on an initial clay sculpture I created in 2017.

Many Become OneCorten steel
105cm x 95cm x 46cm
Edition of 5 – £8,500
I made the first version of this ‘life size’ sculpture in corten steel in 2017 because I wanted to see it in an outside space. I showed it in May that year at Stody Lodge in Norfolk which was the start of a lovely connection with someone who had recently lost their partner.
‘Buying a sculpture was not on my mind in any way when I visited Stody Park early in the summer of 2017 but I was completely entranced by the calmness, sadness and thoughtfulness of ‘Many Become One’. I am profoundly touched by it every day. Even the most cynical of visitors all express a deep fascination for it. To have produced an object in such a hard and severe material as Corten steel that glows with feeling and emotion is quite remarkable and shows the unique skill that Tom has.’

I made the first version of this piece when my dear father was close to death from cancer in 2014. There are no words to describe it, but I was aware of being very grateful for all that he was, and all that he had given – to me and to many others.
Octave CirclePhosphorus Bronze
52cm x 50cm x 57cm
Octave Circle was inspired by the musical octave. I became interested to see if the character of the octave would be maintained if it was made as a visual thing – as opposed to an auditory thing, so I took the maths of the octave and translated it to sizes and weights. The metal sculpture combines atheistic beauty with a philosophical intrigue. I made it so that each ring can rotate on the vertical axis independently. It be be hung or it can stand on a plinth. I found this informed my enquiry into constancy and change.

Gang of ThreeAcrylic on mirror polished steel
56cm x 40cm x 42cm
This is a very personal commission for my brother and his wife, of their three children. They got to a point of (more or less) fleeing the nest, so this sculpture now has pride of place in their kitchen, and I hope captures the essence of each of the three of them, and their constant relationship. Personalised editions available to commission.

MetamorphosisStainless steel on corten steel base
3.5 metres x 2 metres x 2 metres
I had a very enjoyable experience making this sculpture for New York based client for his beautiful property in the South of France in 2016. We met up in his New York office to co-create a sculpture that reflected his interests and personality.

BestatAcrylic on mirror polished steel on wenge base
24cm x 34cm x 44cm
Edition of 12 - £1500
Bastet is the Egyptian goddess of the home, domesticity, women's secrets, cats, fertility, and childbirth. She protected the home from evil spirits and disease, especially diseases associated with women and children.
The same Hampstead couple who asked me to make Marmalade asked me to make Bastet, and we agreed that a sandblasted acrylic would provide a mysterious opacity that reflects the rather elusive character. The earing completes the more contemporary characterisation of this ancient goddess.
Being Me VAcrylic on wenge base
50cm x 45cm x 20cm
I took the vertical form from my first version of ‘Being Me’ to see how it would appear as a ‘positive’ sculpture. As you will see from this and the following image of the same sculpture, the way it is perceived changes according to the setting and the angle of view.
Generally acrylic is viewed as a very utilitarian material but it has all the qualities I was looking for in terms of how it plays with and reacts to light. Like many utilitarian materials, they have a real beauty in the right situation.
Vitruvian WomanAcrylic on stainless steel
82cm x 76cm x 10cm
I was inspired to make an interpretation of one of the most famous drawings in the world, with some changes – a female form rather than male; 3 dimensions rather than 2, and with 4 limbs rather than 8.
I made this sculpture in 164 x 5mm sections all stuck together. Like other of my acrylic works, it shows some of the wonderful quality of the material.

Personalised portraits available by commission. Please contact me to discuss.
In this version I used the shapes lasered out of the sheets to create a positive and a negative version of the same self-portrait.
