Biography / CV of Thomas BrownLondon based carver and sculptor Tom Brown began his career in the time-honoured tradition of European stonemasons from the Renaissance onwards, travelling Britain and Europe to gain experience on various high-profile stone commissions. This journey both broadened his historical grasp of the tradition he had entered and taught him the practical skills needed to bend an intransigent medium to his will. Tom hopes to keep the ancient craft of working stone alive by producing his own original work; and also to do his part, as a restoration carver, in perpetuating our great European tradition of built heritage.
Tom produces work to the highest standard in architectural, sculptural and ornamental stone carving and is a First Class graduate of both Weymouth College and City and Guilds of London Art School.
A member of the `Master Carver`s Association` and elected to `the Worshipful Company of Masons`, through whom he promotes both the appreciation and the practise of the art of stone carving among the general public via displays of the craft.
He has been fortunate to have worked on many prestigious carving and restoration projects, including the V and A’s Renaissance galleries, Strawberry Hill Twickenham, The Royal Albert Memorial, St George’s Chapel Windsor, Queen`s College Oxford as well as projects across Europe including Brittany and Liguria.
Tom is an award winning stone carver and sculptor who carves and designs for private and public sculptural commissions in all types of stone as well as clay and bronze, using his wide range of experience for -
Figurative sculpture and statues
Restoration projects in historic architecture
Interior and exterior decorative and architectural ornament
Memorials, monuments and plaques
