Throughout his career Tom Odell has produced pieces other than jewelry which have included all sorts of fine metal work for various uses both functional and sculptural. Hollowware, tools, architectural hardware and fittings, door knobs and drawer pulls, containers, bicycles, cooking pots, kitchen utensils and lighting fixtures.
The sculptures are all non objective, non representational forms, both free standing and wall mounted and have been produced for interior and exterior settings. His first sculptures were made in the late 1970's, and over the past twenty five years he has produced pieces ranging from several inches to over eight feet in size in a variety of materials and finishes.
Pieces of fabricated, welded mild and corten steels are usually finished with naturally rusted surfaces or occasionally with paint.
Pieces fabricated in stainless steel are finished with various brushed or ground textures to achieve the beautiful reflective surfaces so desirable with this durable and low maintenance material.
