Tom studied jewelry art at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Art in San Francisco, California in 2017 and graduated last "Graduate Jeweler" from there before they closed their doors for good. Subsequent classes were taken at Silvera Jewelry School in Berkley, California. One of those classes was an introduction to Art Clay, taught by Master Instructor Arlene Mornick. Additional Art Clay classes were taken with Arlene as well. In 2018, Tom received his Level One Certification and Senior Level Certifications. Tom teaches primarily in the Sonoma County area of California, one of the great grape growing areas in northern California.

Artist Philosophy: 

Discovering metal clay has been one of the greatest joys in my life. I'm just amazed at how easy it is to work with and what beautiful pieces can be created in a relatively short amount of time compared to traditional jewelry. It's like magic. I'm so looking forward to taking more art classes that can be combined with metal clay and teaching what I've learned to others.
