    Sad to hear of Toms passing I had the great opportunity to apprentice with him very briefly after my first year at George Brown Colleges Ceramics I had little experience but plenty of enthusiasm and interest in the raku tradition He welcomed me into his home for the two months I was there and I learned a great deal.Thank you Tom.
