Artist of the Day

We'd like to introduce an artist whose work was selected as one of the best in America in the category Metals in the 2019 Directory of Traditional American Crafts:

Carl and Marcia Giordano are dedicated to keeping alive the centuries-old art of tinsmithing. They handcraft each piece of tinware in their Ohio tinshop using the tools and techniques of 18th- and 19th-Century tinsmiths.

Both of the Giordanos earned degrees in music from Bowling Green State University. Carl taught music in Ohio public and parochial schools for 30 years before retiring in 1997. [Read More]
