The Copper Works Newlyn and the craftsman at its heart, Michael Johnson, was featured on an Escape to the Country episode we were watching today. Pretty amazing.
First established in the fishing village of Newlyn in 1890, copperware produced in the following 60 years was some of the most outstanding work created in the arts and crafts tradition. Production largely ceased for 40 years until the workshop was re-established by Michael Johnson in 2004.
Michael has been recognized as the leading artisan coppersmith in the UK. Combining traditional coppersmith skills with the latest metalwork technology, The Copper Works Newlyn produces the highest quality hand-crafted bespoke copper work available.
