Pewter Condiment Bowl

Greetings fellow pewter enthusiasts:

With near record amounts of snow this year, it's no wonder there is still quite a bit of the white stuff on the ground around my shop, in the fields and on the ski slopes across the valley at Crotched Mountain. But Spring is indeed here and warmer weather is not far off.

Business is picking up again, thanks in part to Yankee Magazine. I'm one of six artists featured in their article, The New New England Heirlooms, in the March/April edition on newsstands now—or online at...

Greetings Fellow Pewter Enthusiasts,

Season's Greetings

These and prior years ornaments are still available for sale.

It's hard to believe...

Hillsborough's Second Annual Living History Event, held August 21 & 22, was a real success. The weather cooperated and the crowds were plentiful, up almost 30% from last year! Patrons witnessed many historical reenactments and demonstrations around town. Hillsborough Center was the backdrop for several of the events including: pewter casting, blacksmithing, furniture making, cider pressing, a one room school house reenactment, and 18th century style magician, surry rides, and so much more. Look for this event to grow in 2011.
