A sculpture by Huxley-Jones outside Hornsey Library.

Thomas Bayliss Huxley-Jones (1908 – 1968) was a British sculptor known for his creation of the statue of Helios at BBC Television Centre.[1] His sculptures have an elongated and exuberant quality.

Huxley-Jones designed the Joy of Life Fountain at London's Hyde Park (1963).[2] He also created Mother and Child for Chelmsford's Central Park Memorial Gardens which won an award from the Royal Society of British Sculptors in 1966 and was renovated in 2009.[3] Letters to Huxley-Jones from the architect Graham Richards Dawbarn are preserved at the Essex Record Office.[4]
