Wonder - the story so far...

 

Wonder was imagined and designed in the years leading up to, then 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 it was first produced for public 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.

 

"Enigmatic, mysterious and beautiful.

Tom's incredible creation echoes DNA and has the essence of infinity & eternity.

The medieval chapel at Malmesbury Abbey seems the most befitting place for Wonder to find its first ever home. Here in the heart of our town for the marvel and enjoyment of us all."

Reverend Oliver Ross, Malmesbury Abbey

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.

 


 

The genesis of Wonder began in the years leading up to 2020. All Wonders are manufactured in the UK.

 

Since being unveiled and launched, Wonder has received hundreds of direct sales and Big Wonder has generated multiple commissions including being selected as the master illusion for the Museum of Illusions in various sites including their flagship location in Las Vegas, as well as showcase locations in San Diego, Seattle and Copenhagen.

 

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:

"It's a brilliant masterpiece you have created.

I have no other word.

Beyond its aesthetic and physical constituents it emodies so many things.

You have reached some Truth in the form. I am sure you understand what I mean."
