Tom Eckert is an artist and professor who carves hyper-realistic, or mistaken impression, sculptures. He carves everyday objects such as books, cloth, shoes, and plates out of wood. Yes, all of these sculptures are made of wood! Amazing! The artist prefers woods like basswood, linden and limewood because they are all good for carving, good for painting on, and are stable. Tom uses traditional processes to carve, construct, laminate and paint the sculptures.
Tom recieved his M.F.A. (Masters of Fine Arts) from Arizona State University and began teaching there shortly after. His work has been displayed in over 150 national and international exhibitions.
