Copperware and Blacksmithing

The Copper Elf is a brazier-tinman (also known as a tinsmith); a maker of traditional domestic copper, brass and tinplate items using hand tools. The Elf has been combining his braziery skills with traditional blacksmithing for ten years for complete heritage matelwork keeping the whole of the production in house. This specialising in heritage matelwork skills is used to create historic reproductions for museums, educators, reenactors and all other interested people. 

The Copper Elf's copperware and tinware has been used in TV productions including for the History Channel and ITV's "The Winter King". His copper and brassware has also been used in nationally important museums, historic and educational venues. The Elf's blacksmith work can be seen in local churches and has also been used in film productions including Universal Pictures' "The Northman".

For examples of items made by the Copper Elf visit the Product section of this website for galleries of products sorted by metal type. The product pages also contain details of copper care and cleaning. If you want to discuss or order a special commissions please email the Copper Elf directly or drop him a Facebook message.
