- A close- up of his beautiful horseshoe horse!
Tom Hill is a 27 year-old self-taught sculptor who for the last 6 years has been working with recycled horseshoes to create life-size animal sculptures. Tom utilizes a gas forge, anvil and hammer as well as various welding techniques to heat and shape the horseshoes to create his sculptures.
Tom specializes 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.
To date much of Tom’s work has been sold internationally with pieces going as far as America and Canada.
