Tom Clark’s whimsical sculptures hide his serious dedication to art. He is an art scholar with a Phd who began creating gnome sculptures in 1978. You don’t have to know a lot about art to find tremendous joy in his work.

Calling them “woodspirits” and using pecan shells from his native North Carolina, Dr. Clark has created one of the most enjoyable to collect figurines. They brighten your home and bring a smile to every visitor. I take special pride in my collection of Clarks as they have all been signed by the artist. What a nice man!
