Born and raised in the quaint town of Kimberley, Métis artist Tom Watson began welding in 2002. He enjoys exploring the boundaries of metal - his favourite materials are stainless steel, titanium, steel and copper - and how to manipulate it. From iridescent seams to incorporating earthly elements like crystals and glass to further evoke emotions, he always pushes the possibilities.
Jacks, expertly fashioned from polished stainless steel, evokes a simpler time: laughing, crowding around friends, cheering, with no place for technology to interrupt.
