Crosby & Taylor

Maker - Deborah Chapman

Maker Story

Pewter Possibilities Deborah and Jim Chapman had a background in woodworking and romance languages, and, as it turns out, a deep love (and talent) for the artful and ancient craft of pewter smithing. When their closest friends decided to shut down their s

Today we’re featuring a number of our favorite Crosby & Taylor’s pieces: an intricately detailed bird rack for holding keys, a coffee scoop with a refined geometric pattern and its own hook, and amazing Celtic-inspired measuring spoons and cups (you’ll treasure these for generations). There’s also a Santa key (left), which a heartwarming way to reassure kids that Santa will have no trouble visiting, even if there;s no chimney.

All of the items are made from pewter, which is a blend of tin and copper that’s bound with an agent called antimony. A key difference between these items and traditional pewter collectibles is that Crosby & Taylor’s pewter is meant to be used, not just displayed (contemporary pewter is lead-free and food safe).

Deborah reached out to us after she read about Daily Grommet in the New York Times and wrote a blog post explaining why her company would make a great Grommet. After getting to know Deborah and the work of Crosby & Taylor, we had to agree. Her family-friendly business is helping to preserve a centuries-old craft, while infusing it with a contemporary, original vibe. We love the whimsy, the practicality and the superb craftsmanship.
