Dedicated to the traditional art and craft of fine metalworking, New England Copperworks combines quality craftsmanship with elegant, classic design to produce the finest copper ornamentals available.

True to our families’ traditional metal crafting heritage that dates back to the 1800s, our expert craftsmen hand spin heavy-gauge copper to create exquisite light fixtures, finials, birdbaths, and ornamentals. The result is a seamless construction that is not only beautiful, but will last for generations, withstanding even the harshest New England weather. In fact, over time, exposure to the elements transforms the warm glow of copper to a rich and lustrous patina.

In addition to creating distinctive and versatile designs, we can repair or replicate pieces that have been damaged, and we welcome custom requests. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with special requests or questions you have about any item in this catalog. We not only uphold traditional metalworking techniques, we also believe in providing personal attention and unsurpassed service.
