John Monk

Roycroft Artisan in Metal

 

My fascination with sheet metal began early.  In the 1960’s my father collected antique tinsmithing tools.  By the time I was 16 I was making the occasional sconce or lantern using his tools.  When my father passed his tools on to me, I set up a shop at home and, for several years, did quite a bit of tinsmithing.  During that time, I was able to volunteer at the Ohio Historical Society Ohio Village tin shop and learn with one of the best tinsmiths in the country, crafting utilitarian items such as sconces, lanterns, and tea pots.  In 2010 I took a class at John C. Campbell Folk School on Copperware in the Arts and Crafts tradition from a Roycroft Master Craftsman.  This re-invigorated my desire to create and expanded my vision from the utilitarian nature of tinware to the artistic flair of Arts and Crafts copperware.  Since that time, I have continued to study and create, producing traditional and original copperware.  In 2020 I was juried into the Roycrofters-at-Large Association as an Artisan and am now working toward my Master Artisan status.  My fascination with copper as a medium and Arts and Crafts forms as an expression in that medium continues.
