Tom Wallick Studio

Tom Wallick's signature style is a piece with graceful lines adorned with "Prehistoric" texturing and crystalline glazing.  Classic graceful lines are innate; the "Prehistoric" technique was his own invention; the crystalline glazing came as a result of a fortuitous meeting with crystalline ceramic artist Kris Friedrich a few years ago.    When you visit Tom's Studio you can often see him at the wheel, working his creations.  Tom's designs are also showcased at B & B Booksellers Gallery, 278 Main Street and the Blue Goose Gallery, 607 Main Street, Chester.
