Tom Waugh

Tom Waugh MRSS is a British sculptor based in Somerset. He has been an associate member of the Royal Society of Sculptors since 2018. In 2005 he gained a First in Architectural Stone Carving at the City and Guilds of London Art School and has spent time in India studying traditional carving techniques with the temple carver Raja Saceran.

‘I find it fascinating that sculpture has the ability to cause a shift in people’s perception. In my work I hope to challenge ideas of material value and make people look again at the things we take for granted.’

Tom Waugh carves stone and marble in minute detail to mirror the discarded waste of human consumption. These objects document the tiny imprints of human use. Plastic bags, cardboard boxes and tin cans are squashed, crushed and wrinkled whilst still displaying the traces of mass production.

His carving can be seen on St Pancras Station, St Martin in the fields and St Georges Chapel, Windsor. His Sculptures are exhibited widely and can be seen in the collections of Warwick University and Gladstone’s Library.
