Biography

Tom Payne graduated from the University for the Creative Arts in 2000 and has since established himself as a sculptor and model maker based in London; he has now been exhibiting his work for more than ten years in galleries throughout England and various London fairs. Using coiling techniques in high-grog crank clay Tom’s sculptures are usually figurative, concentrating on poise and character. This stylised approach results in relatable one-off figures, which are often grouped into themes. Also Tom has produced public exhibitions, most notably for the Natural History Museum and Grant Museum (University of London) and commissioned pieces for MTV television advertisements.
