A visit to Woodbury Pewter

WOODBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — Melting metal and shaping it into beautiful plates, cups and teapots. That is what the team over at Woodbury Pewter does.

In this week’s Working for Connecticut, we take a look at the time-honored tradition that is used to create these pieces.

Woodbury Pewter has been on Main Street since it first started in 1952. Brooks Titcomb’s father and great aunt started the business all those years ago.

In keeping with tradition, Titcomb says they still perfect their craft the same way it has been done for centuries.

“We are unique in the fact we still do everything the same way it was done in the 17-1800’s,” he told News 8. “People get a piece of pewter, they hang onto it. They realize there’s an intrinsic value.”

For more on how the folks at Woodbury Pewter create their masterpieces, take a look at the video above.
