From the Artist, Tim Copeland
Designing "Wonderland" I wanted to express the feeling of peace and wonder I find being out in the woods in winter. As characters for this "story in one frame" I chose woodland animals because they naturally inspire a sense of wonder in me. I think this is why so many childhood stories are populated by animals and their adventures. Their little gathering at the snowy tree in the woods also illustrates the idea of that the holidays are a time of gathering. The crystal bead is an exploration of adding color to a design in a way that also adds the dimension of movement. It is like another "character" in this story - it suggests the crisp shimmer of a winter sky as it also suggests the ornaments we adorn our trees with in the holidays.
Danforth Pewter: Handcrafted Excellence from Middlebury, Vermont
In 1975, Fred and Judi Danforth established Danforth Pewter right here in the USA. Their venture was more than just a business; it was a revival of a cherished family tradition dating all the way back to 1755 when Thomas Danforth II opened a pewter workshop in colonial Connecticut. Today, the company continues this tradition by handcrafting a diverse range of pewter giftware and home accessories.
