Tom is a man with huge spirit. Tom fills a room and approaches life with passion. He brings his passion to PotteryWorks and a focus that any artist would envy. No one is more proud of their work or more skilled at self promotion and sales then Tom. Once, when Ted Wiens of Royal Bank was visiting the studio, Tom showed him a mask he had made. When Mr. Wiens responded favorably, Tom signed "Give me money". Mr Wiens did give money to buy a new kiln and Tom happily accepted the cheque from him.
