CARL & MARCIA GIORDANO


Carl & Marcia Giordano

Carl and Marcia Giordano are a husband-wife team of artisans dedicated to keeping alive the centuries-old art of tinsmithing. They personally handcraft each piece of tinware they create in their Ohio tinshop using tools and techniques in the tradition of 18th- and 19th-Century tinsmiths.

Their work sets the highest standards as evidenced by many prestigious organizations choosing it for its quality and historical accuracy. Giordano tinware is purchased by many museums and historic sites across the country for resale, for display, and for use in interpretations. The National Park Service commissioned the Giordanos to make several pieces to be used aboard The Friendship, a reproduction of an 18th-Century sailing ship now docked at Salem Maritime National Historic Site in Massachusetts. Several motion picture studios have used their work in major films including “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World” and all three “Pirates of the Caribbean” films. In addition, HBO commissioned several pieces for their miniseries “John Adams.” Their work has adorned the White House Blue Room Christmas Tree and the Ohio Governor’s Residence Christmas Tree.

Both Carl and Marcia have musical backgrounds. They met at Bowling Green State University, where each was awarded a Bachelor of Music degree. Carl taught music in the Ohio public and parochial schools for thirty years before retiring in 1997. He served as master tinsmith at Historic Zoar Village (operated by the Ohio Historical Society) for six years. The Giordanos have participated in many crafts fairs over the years and now concentrate on demonstrating and selling their work at Revolutionary War re-enactments, most of which are located in the original 13-colony states
