Intro
I have always rather liked Mr. Potato Head... a set of simple features grant life and humor to a lumpen ovoid and vegetable becomes man; evolution in speedy form.

Artist list

Tim Hill
Sweet potatoes have a rather avian form (if you care to think about it) and so a set of generic bird parts; beaks, eyes, feathers, legs, etc. render complex carbs into birds which are, I hope (and please excuse the pun), Yamtastic fun. / Tom Hill


About the Artist:  
Tom Hill has been a full-time artist since leaving college in 1994 and makes pieces both for exhibitions and for corporate, public, and private commissions. His pieces are made using mild steel wire, with additions of steel, wood, or copper sheet and copper meshes. Tom considers himself to be both a draftsman and a metalworker. His three-dimensional pieces are based on drawn studies of birds and animals in motion. Tom finds that the steel wire behaves in much the same way as a quickly drawn line, and thus he is able to create, in effect, a three-dimensional “sketch.”
