You might be wondering who Tom Clark is. Chances are, you have never heard of him. A quick Google search will only show you how common the name is. The Clark in question is Dr. Thomas Fetzer Clark who was a theology professor at Davidson College. But what does a man with a PHD in theology have anything to do with gnomes?

What started out as a hobby is what soon became his life legacy. Clay sculpting allowed Dr. Clark to travel around the world and provide special pieces to home collectors. Inspired by the 1976 book “Gnomes” by Will Huygen and Rien Poortvliet, Clark based his gnomes on the drawings in the book which led to his rise in fame. Soon after, he began to sculpt other creatures and named them “woodspirits”. These creatures were often inspired by people the artists saw around his school campus, and gave them a fictional background.
