Welcome To Vermont Tinworks!
All of the tinware displayed here is handcrafted in the same meticulous manner, using only the hand tools of the bygone tinsmith. I am continuing this old tradition to perpetuate these unique and original designs. I hope that my products will be a nostalgic reminder of a past era, days long ago when a handcrafted article was the product of an individual, formed with care by the hands of a craftsman.

Apart of VHC since 2011
originated in the Hartford, Connectcut area, known long ago as the "tin capital of the world."
Leaving from this area with their horse-drawn wagons filled to the brim with tinware, the "tinkers" traveled as far west as St. Louis, selling and trading their wares as they went.
These ingenious pioneers who carved a living out of the wilderness of our country more then two centuries ago, were of necessity, skilled craftsman. I am continuing the old tradition that perpetuates their unique and original designs.Learn More
