I met Tom at the Clayton Art Fair in St Louis several years ago. Instantly, I fell in love with his furniture. The fair was about to close as I entered the stall displaying his striking tables. Within five minutes, I’d picked the one I wanted, and Tom was carrying it to my car. I’ve never made such a quick impulse purchase this fast before. This morning, as every morning, I’m enjoying my cup of tea and soaking in the beauty of this little table. Tom’s work in wood brings me daily joy. Thank you for this treasure.
