“We are entering our 14th year of exhibiting at art festivals. Sarasota Festival of the Arts is my second show of the 2018 season and I am excited to be part of this top ranked art festival,” said Tom Dumke owner of Thomas William Furniture. Sarasota Festival of the Arts in Sarasota, Florida will be held on February 10 & 11. Artists in seventeen medium categories were selected to participate through a highly competitive jury review process by a panel of jurors who are experts in the visual arts.
Tom handcrafts solid wood furniture that is Shaker inspired and is traditional with a modern flair. The clean line of the Shaker form inspires the design, creating pieces sized proportionally for today's needs. The Shakers have had a profound influence on Tom's work: their clean unadorned simplicity, functionalism and craftsmanship. He also is influenced with a deep respect for the furniture craftsmen of the 17th and 18th centuries. Their knowledge of form, balance, joinery and of wood movement is evident in the pieces of fine furniture that still exist today.
