SHOWOFF Canopy Featured Artist: Tom LoweFree Shipping on all orders above $1,300
"When you buy something from an artist, you're buying more than just an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of errors and experimentation. You're buying years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You're buying a piece of their life-long journey. You're buying a small piece of someone else's life!”
These words hold especially true for Tom Lowe, who picked up a chisel and mallet at the ripe age of 10 and, from there, knew that wood carving would be his life-long journey. Along the way, his tools have become much more modern and powerful and his tactics much more refined, but his goal has stayed the same: create something truly unique.
For three decades, he has faithfully pursued his passion to create beautiful, authentic works of art using wood. Each piece is hand carved using one continuous piece and range from the functional (e.g., salad bowl with a pair of tongs) to the ornate (e.g., sculptures suited for the coffee table).
Working out of his workshop in Ashland, Virginia, Lowe is often accompanied through the work day by his loquacious little dog, Lillie, and is always looking for a good farmers' market to sell his woodcarvings. There is little we offer to help with the former, but for the latter, Tom has chosen one of our sturdy SHOWOFF canopies.
"We have been doing shows for years and always dreaded rain; we don't anymore," said Tom Lowe. "Our Showoff canopy is easy to set up and leak proof! Thank you for making a great product."
