A reader sent me a few images of an artist from the UK named Tom Hill. He uses horseshoes for sculpture!
I think creating horseshoe sculptures appears easier than it really is… have you ever tried to make anything other than bridle hooks and candle holders out of horseshoes? They don’t bend easily.
Sure, we have zillions used ones around… but they’re dirty and hard as, well, steel.
So, I was intrigued to find out more about him.
He must be a man of few words or maybe he has no publicist. I don’t know… but gathering information about him was like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
The only way I knew he was from the UK was because we don’t have castles here. (I did find that a Lord from a castle had commissioned a piece from Hill.)
Another clue to his whereabouts came via a comment about most of his work being sold in the UK.
Finally, after using my best sleuthing, I found his website. It wasn’t intuitive. And, obviously he had switched from his former – very inutitive – website name to a somewhat obscure URL.
