Tom Thornton Goes Sculptural

Wall Mount 34×22

Patrons at La Quinta Arts Festival and Art Under the Umbrellas know award winning master woodworker Tom Thornton for his intricate wood boxes.  Interesting, elaborate designs, exotic woods, skilled joinery and functional mechanisms are the trademarks of Tom’s work .   But the creative Tom felt it time to “step out of the box” so to speak. 

Freestanding 23x14x7

Lucky for us, Thornton’s newest imaginings are expressed in a just released line of exquisite wood sculptures.  These statement pieces speak to devotees of nature who seek a sophisticated, contemporary application – perfect for the desert’s  mid-century architecture!  Whether your space calls for a free standing piece or wall sculpture, Thornton’s unique art will surely catch your eye and that of envious friends.

You can meet Tom and see his new work at the upcoming Art Under the Umbrellas on January 15th and the 29th La Quinta Arts Festival, March 10-13, 2011.
