Tom continued working as a mason and eventually began his own business, called Stone Age that he was operating until the time of his death.

Executing massive hammer blows to gently coerce steel and stone or laying down delicate brush stokes with riggers of fine Sable, such is the work that we do. Working with natural beauty and simplicity to achieve the simply beautiful is our goal.

The finest workers in stone are not copper or steel tools, but the gentle touches of air and water working at their leisure with a liberal allowance of time. Thoreau.
