You know Tom through his jewelry, his book, and his workshops. (Check out upcoming offerings at Art Is Petaluma and Valley Ridge.) But did you know he’s also an accomplished chef? Yes, indeed–and the coolest thing ever is that he’s starting to combine his jewelry workshops with cooking demos and workshops. Imagine how these might unfold: you make your own cooking-related jewelry, and then you make cooking implements, like ladles and spoons, and then you create a meal and actually use what you’ve made to eat the food you’ve prepared. Does that sound like a lot of fun or what?
Here are some shots of Tom cooking dinner for us at his home studio, the former Rose Tattoo bar, in the fall of 2010.
Go here to find a selection of his tools, along with his DVD, and go here to join him on Facebook.
