Thomas Mann has been active in the contemporary American craft movement for the past thirty years as an artist, gallery owner and lecturer. His primary design vocabulary combines industrial aesthetics and materials with evocative romantic themes and imagery, and he calls this design system 'Techno-Romantic,' the design mode for which he and is best known.

Mann, a Pennsylvania native, received a BA in Performing Arts with emphasis on set design from East Stroudsburg University and has been a self-employed full-time jewelry designer since 1970. He lives and works in New Orleans where he oversees a jewelry design and production studio, a sculpture studio, and gallery.
