Made using mild steel wire, with additions of steel or copper sheet and copper meshes, Tom Hill’s bird sculptures express both the character of the birds they portray and the quickly drawn line of his sketches.

This miniature version can be worn as a brooch or displayed as a sculpture. It is for sale with, and photographed here guarding, a small egg as Peter had it displayed in his home.

“I have been a full-time artist since leaving college in 1994 and make pieces both for exhibitions and for corporate, public and private commissions.

My pieces are made using mild steel wire, with additions of steel or copper sheet and copper meshes. I consider myself to be both a draftsman and a metalworker. My three-dimensional pieces are based on drawn studies of birds and animals in motion. I find that the steel wire I use behaves in much the same way as a quickly drawn line, and thus I am able to create, in effect, a three-dimensional sketch.” – Tom Hill
