May Artist of the Month

T. Breeze Verdant

Exeter Fine Crafts is pleased to present T Breeze Verdant as our May Artist of the Month. Making stunning pieces from scraps and recycled bits of wood, T. Breeze (the “T” stands for Tom) creates work that often echoes the natural landscape. Using a variety of woods, Paua abalone and fine metals, T Breeze uses very thin veneers to create unique designs on his jewelry, boxes, guitars and more.

Aiming to create eco-friendly work, T Breeze enjoys using scavenged and recycled materials. His jewelry often features unique woods, such as ebony from a ship that sunk in 1854 to old musical instruments destined for the dump. Consuming very little material, T Breeze uses thin veneers that allow him to work with rare woods without using very much. One piece of wood can produce 40 slices of veneer, allowing T Breeze to, “create the greatest amount of beauty from the least amount of wood."

With a self-proclaimed doctorate from the University of Hard Knocks, T Breeze began his woodworking career by assembling a log cabin from his own trees and rocks. Literally building from this concept, T Breeze would later construct a second home using materials from demolished buildings and a forest that was scheduled to be clear-cut. A jack of many trades, T. Breeze has been a full-time woodworker since 1988. A juried member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, his work has been featured in several publications and can be found in fine craft galleries throughout the country.

T Breeze’s unique work will be on display at Exeter Fine Crafts throughout the month of May. Offering many different designs, you are bound to find the perfect gift for Mother’s Day!
