About the Artist: Tom Clevenger’s portfolio includes art pedestals, furniture, and custom work. In 2007, Tom began experimenting with segmented wood turning. This complicated process of creating art with a wood lathe, involves the assembly of various colored and textured local and imported hardwoods from around the world. Tom’s design inspiration comes from the vibrant colors and designs found on current and historic Native American textiles, pottery and baskets, as well as the beauty he finds in the natural forms of mountains, rivers, sunsets, and even the spirals of tornadoes. Tom first introduced his new art form at the 2008 Wallowa Valley Festival of Arts where he won 1st Place for his turning titled “Diversity”. Tom’s work can be viewed at Kelly Wick’s new gallery, in Joseph.
