on Gibson and Gibson Pewter are featured in the current issue of Yankee Magazine (March/April 2011) in an article titled “The New New England Heirlooms.” The article features a number of talented New England craftspeople creating timeless pieces to share across generations.
Of the seven artisans covered in the article, Jon is the sole representative of New Hampshire and the only metal-smith. Besides looking at the artists creations, the article asks about their inspiration and their own prized heirloms.
From the article:
Second-generation New Hampshire pewterer Jon Gibson is a little obsessed with his medium. “I study the history of American and British pewter,” he explains. “I collect and restore antique pewter and pewtering tools. I have volumes of books on antique pewter. And I’m a member of the Pewter Collectors’ Club of America.”
