Chris Thomas

A multi-talented, Renaissance man, Chris had careers in academia and the theater, as well as art. He drew on his Laguna Pueblo and Apache heritage, as well as his travels, for his endlessly creative and meticulously executed pieces. His “boxes” are like little magic cupboards; open the doors and you find a magical world entirely hand made in exquisite detail. Whatever the apparent material: adobe, wood, tile, basketry, pottery, it looks real – and everythiing (except the leather books and rugs) is carved and painted wood!
Sadly, there will be no more; the artist passed away, suddenly and much too soon, in 2005.
