About the Artist
Michael Tatom has been a jeweler and sculptor for more than twenty-five years. Born in Los Alamos, N.M. Michael was raised in a family of artists and designers. In 1980 he moved to California to attend the Gemological Institute of America. After working in the San Francisco Bay area for ten years, Michael returned to Santa Fe, N.M. where he established a custom jewelry business, eventually expanding to Aspen, Maui, and Pebble Beach. In that time he has become known for his unique, elegant, contemporary designs, featuring exacting craftsmanship, and the finest quality gemstones. In 1994 Michael started sculpting a series of bronze animal figures. In these animals he has magically captured the shape and movement of the animals through a simple, graceful technique. "The main focus of my work is to translate into bronze the essence of the animal, to capture some movement or instinct and present it in a simple stylized form."
