Goldsmith Tom Kuhner is selected "Artist of the Month"

Sanbornton, New Hampshire – March 2005

 Sanbornton Square’s resident goldsmith Tom Kuhner will be the featured “Artist of the Month” by the Village Artists & Gallery, 51 Main Street in Ashland, NH, and will be the highlight of a reception at the Gallery on Tuesday evening, March 15 from 6 – 8 PM.   Light refreshments will be served. 

Celebrating his 25th year in business, Mr. Kuhner is a craftsman with heart.   He takes delight in the perfection of nature, and draws much of his inspiration from this sensitivity.  Many of his pieces represent all that is organic in the world around us: from the delicate petals of a flower to the exquisitely unique shell of an oyster; while other pieces are more contemporary or whimsical.  What they have in common, however, is their superb craftsmanship and their attention to detail.

An Ohio native, Mr. Kuhner began working in precious metals in 1974 as an apprentice to a jeweler in a seaside New England town.  For the son of a dentist, the art was a natural fit and, by the early 1980’s, he was off on his own.  Although his designs have become more sophisticated over the years, he still uses the traditional, centuries-old techniques of the metalsmithing trade.  Each piece -- carefully hand-wrought in 14K  gold, sterling silver, gold overlay or 14k gold over sterling – is either  forged, chased or peened, and polished to a high shine, or cast from original molds using the “lost wax” process.  Many pieces are embellished with luminous precious and semi-precious stones and lustrous freshwater pearls. Mr. Kuhner is a juried member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen and exhibits annually at the Craftsmen’s Fair in Sunapee, NH.  His work can also be found in fine galleries and craft stores across the country, and on the web at
