Tom has been sculpting furniture and working with wood for as long as he can remember. It wasn't until recently that he started working with a different medium, clay, in a more substantial way. In Tom's words, "Unlike wood, fashioning clay is both additive and subtractive ― correcting mistakes and editing are more easily done."
Tom started working on a sculpture, while spending the early winter months of 2010 in La Belle, Florida. His neighbor there inspired his first creation, Bella, named after their ideal setting.
Bella is a life-size replication of his neighbor, perched on a granite base and cast in bronze at a local forge. The bronze statue weighs in at 140 lbs and is suitable for interior or exterior placement. The bronze will develop a beautiful patina over time.
Tom's first prototype of Bella is located at his home in Maine, but he has since created a limited run of twenty that he is selling. Our showrooms in Los Angeles, Boston and Washington, DC are proud to each have the sculpture in their presence.
