hello hello.

I’m sara,
YOUR happy coppersmith

Your cookware is always touched by my hands, personally. My three young children help pack boxes. My husband drives your order to UPS...

This is a family business, supporting other small, American family businesses. I do the physical work of the House Copper cookware line in my Wisconsin copper shop. My tools range from modern bead blasters and grinders to 1700s tinsmith stakes and 1820 hand rotary coppersmithing machines. Welcome to us!

You are welcome to submit thoughts, questions, and general inquiries here. (Though if you’re sending a note about re-tinning, custom orders, etc, it may get forwarded to my assistant.)
Please note! The address online for House Copper is NOT a storefront or forge. The copper shop is in my private home, and I do not allow drop-ins, surprise visits, or personal copper drop-offs. The address is a shipping address only. If you drive up, you’ll wind up at a UPS store, and they will not give you my personal home address.
