There really isn't much Tom would rather be doing than carving and stone seems to be the favourite medium. Each piece is an experiment in what the stone will allow to be created. The variety of stone ranges from softer alabaster to harder marble and Jade. Each piece is unique and starts as a clean slate. The process of being able to start each project as if nothing happened before it is liberating. Imagine going to work each day and not having any of the issues from the previous day - its brand new and exciting all the time!
