About

John is a brazier (maker of domestic copper and brassware items) and tinman making historic reproductions for museums, educators, reenactors and anyone with a love of hand made traditional metalwork. Products include reproductions of medieval brass kettles, Victorian tinplate cups and containers, candle sconces and lanterns.

Braziery and tinplate are John's main skills. In addition he uses traditional blacksmith techniques to forge his own handles, stands and other associated domestic ironmongery himself.
