Made of cut and assembled stone, metal,
and other materials, UK-based sculptor
Tom Stogdon's creations can be found in
many hotels and private collections all over
the world. But he used something far more
ephemeral to create his first public piece, a
life-sized sculpture of a person in the style
of Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo:
vegetables. It wound up on the front page
of a major newspaper. "You think, 'Oh, I've
arrived,' but of course, you never arrive,"
Stogdon says. "You're always moving, and
there are peaks and troughs."
Stogdon's professional journey started
when he joined his family's green grocery
business at the age of 16, where he worked
for years before moving on to a position
at a fruit importing company. Seeking a
more creative outlet, he took a nighttime
photography class and began making small
vegetable assemblages so that he would
have something interesting to shoot. "They
were what was at hand, and I quite enjoyed
it," he says.
When he read that a flower show in
Covent Garden would feature life-sized
vegetable sculptures, he convinced the
organizers that he could do the job, laboring
for 36 hours without sleep to make his
deadline. The buzz it received inspired
him to leave his day job, and he soon joined
a group studio, where he began working
with more lasting materials such as slate
and Ancaster Weatherbed, which he cuts
up into small pieces and reassembles into
various forms, sometimes alongside other
found objects.
His sculptures include letters, skylines,
and circles, a calming shape he often
revisits. One such example is a circular
sculpture made of irregular pieces of
slate, which can be found in the garden at
Number 16, one of Kit Kemp's Firmdale
Hotels. She not only acquired a larger
version for her personal collection, but also
commissioned Stogdon to create tables for
the Ham Yard Hotel, Knightsbridge, and
Dorset Square.
Since he began working out of a
spacious old stable, Stogdon's work has
become larger and even more ambitious.
In his own garden, for example, he created
a linear, 9-foot-tall sculpture that weighs
two-and-a-half tons and contains hundreds
of stacked, geometric slate pieces. "Desire
to continue developing is what gets me into
the studio each day," Stogdon says. "Every
day is different, and it's very exciting."
