Tom Hill

Tom Hill

Tom Hill is a sculptor, musician, draftsman, and jeweler whose work is an exploration of the natural world, most notably in sculptural objects depicting animals in motion.  Built from materials such as mild steel wire, wood, copper, and pigments.

Birds have long been the connecting thread through my work. On a basic “form” level I enjoy the sense of a round body suspended on thin legs, the challenge of making a piece balance both physically and aesthetically, the suggestion of strength and lightness; always the feeling that the bird may be just about to take flight and disappear from view. The scimitar curve of a beak extending from the rounded head form with those beady , skin-surrounded eyes; both ugly and beautiful at the same time. 

I tend to think of all my pieces as character studies. Spend a few seconds observing a bird; the turn of the head, the flash of an eye, puffed up feathers; each gesture conveys a wealth of visual material for the artist as we see the bird consider and interact intelligently with the world around it.

The more time I spend observing nature the more I feel connected with it and feel greatly privileged to live in our urban landscape, rich with animal life.
