Thomas Hill


Thomas Hill's pieces are made using mild steel wire of various gauges with additions of copper and brass sheet and copper meshes.The colour is added with enamel paint, which is applied to the metal while it is hot, building up thin layers with additions of metal pigment. The joints are soldered with silver solder. Thomas was trained as a jeweller at Middlesex University in London and currently lives and work in San Francisco,California.

"I use wire as it enables me to create a 3 dimensional drawing and to capture the feeling of animals in motion with the energy of a quick sketch."
