-- Tom Dumke of Thomas William Furniture, a 2019 Smithsonian Craft Show Artist, will contribute a piece of furniture to the Online Auction,
a wonderful and important part of the Smithsonian Craft Show. Mr. Dumke will auction one of his heirloom quality End Tables which exhibits an excellent example of Tom's craftsmanship. Proceeds from the Online Auction are used to fund grants submitted by the nineteen museums and six research facilities of the Smithsonian Institution.
"We really enjoyed our time at the Smithsonian Craft Show in 2017, and are thrilled to be chosen as a featured artist again, Tom stated. I'll be donating an End Table, clean lines and precise detailing, which is crafted from solid walnut, accenting the top and legs with dramatic wenge wood." Tom Dumke is one of the 120 fine-art craft artists chosen to exhibit at the Smithsonian Craft Show representing 34 states; chosen from more than 1,000 applications. Tom handcrafts solid wood furniture that is Shaker inspired and is traditional with a modern flair. The clean line of the Shaker form inspires the design, creating pieces sized proportionally for today's needs.
Thomas William Furniture is based out of Southeastern Wisconsin, Milwaukee metropolitan area. For more information, http://www.thomaswilliamfurniture.com
