Tom Palmer is an artist of extraordinary range, mastering an ever expanding array of materials and techniques. He finds inspiration in natural phenomena and artistic traditions, in particular the aesthetic of modern Japanese makers and artists. Likewise the religious and fine art of medieval Europe, viewing them through a modern lens in pursuit of something new and unexpected.
Finding inspiration, he applies and develops his technical capability and knowledge of working with a wide range of materials, whether with ancient stone or modern, often pushing known boundaries to evolve processes and produce distinct new material combinations.
The pieces presented here illustrate the extraordinary diversity of his work: from sculptural pieces to bespoke installations and elements for architectural projects.
These are largely custom made to order, and in most cases their inherent material construction allows for a variety of applications, sometimes on large scale. Please refer to each listing for more information.
