Tom Jay

Tom Jay has worked as a salmon fisherman, a bronze foundry operator, and, for the last seven years, a sculptor. He lives with his wife Sara Mall, also a sculptor, on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State in a "funky" pole house they built in the seventies. A lot of what Tom says has to do with serving a place - the soul of a place, the ghosts of a place. He does this with his art, and he does it with efforts to restore the salmon run to the Chimacum Creek near where he lives.
