Wonder, has been imagined, designed and fabricated by Tom Lawton through the course of the Covid pandemic and with thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign and a donation from the James Dyson Foundation has been produced in bronze by Pangolin Editions in Stroud for permanent display in Malmesbury Abbey.
Comprising of a single, self-supporting, ribbon-like structure finished in polished copper, which appears to flow like water as it spirals both upwards and down, expanding outwards and contracting in.
Wonder arrived at Malmesbury Abbey to great reception and together with Malmesbury Live Arts and the Abbey, Tom organised a musical extravaganza 'Renaissance of Wonder' to celebrate its unveiling.
Hundreds & thousands of vistors have now visited the abbey to experience Wonder's universally peaceful and calming effect.

Wonder follows Uplift and began its life as a discrete and illuminating installation off Malmesbury high street in the cold winter of the third lockdown of the pandemic to serve as a provision of hope for the local community. Residents would often gather outside the window alone, with children, with elderly relatives and after long shifts at work.
Tom's original Wonder presently sits in Avebury's Great Barn by invitation of the National Trust where it is on display to the public for free, until 3rd April 2022. The barn is open daily from 10am to 4pm.
Wonder will then move to its temporary home at The Long Table, near Stroud.
While Wonder has been designed and fabricated by Tom in rural Wiltshire through the course of this pandemic the genesis of it began in the years leading up to 2020.
Wonder brings an etherial and calming presence to a space, creating an atmosphere and focal point for relaxation, contemplation & meditation.
Wonder's impact on the public is already profound with hundreds of positive impressions and incredible interpretations from visitors far and wide. Some people are moved to dance, some to song, others to a state of deep calm and some are even moved to tears. The experience is universally uplifting and peaceful, just read the thousands of comments on these threads:
Tom's vision is grand. With dramatic scale and music and consciously curated spaces we'd like to take Wonder on tour and find homes for permanent installations in prestigious and unconventional locations across all regions of these isles of Wonder... and then eventually, the world... so that as many people as possible can experience its otherworldly effect.
