Horseshoes for art—no luck needed

TOM HILL IS A 26-YEAR-OLD self-taught sculptor in England who for the last three years has been working with recycled horseshoes to create life-size animal sculptures. Hill uses a gas forge, anvil and hammer as well as various welding techniques to heat and shape the horseshoes to create his sculptures.

Hill has created a wide range of sculptures such as hedgehogs, squirrels, ducks, herons, swans, pigs, hares, badgers, dogs, lions, cheetahs, stags, camels, horses and elephants—all of them life size.

To date much of Hill’s work has been sold in England, with some pieces going to Italy and Ireland. Hill also has plans to create some sculptures using stainless and has started a small amount of work with copper.

Feast your eyes…feed your mind.
