Christopher Thomas

Christopher Thomas is a steampunk artist who is best known for his fascinating sculptures and complex assemblages made from recycled materials and items donated to his studio. A chronic sufferer of migraines, his journey into the art world was triggered by an event related to his health in April 2012, when he experienced his first seizure while working as a physical and behavioral therapist in Providence, Rhode Island. He suffered a concussion, which would later transform the way he perceived reality and the world around him.


Our designers are eager to share their knowledge & story of the creative process. As guests explore each garden, they will awaken their senses with the gorgeous designs & featured tastings.
