Simon Pearce

A Legacy of Artisan Design

 

2018 marks the first time that Hubbardton Forge and Simon Pearce—two, well-known Vermont makers—come together creatively.

Simon Pearce worked with notable glassmakers across Europe, before he and his wife, Pia, opened their studio in Vermont over 35 years ago. According to Simon, “When we arrived and saw the old brick building, the majestic river and the water falling over the dam, we knew it was right.” It’s a 200-year-old former woolen mill where handmade pieces come to life in the turbine-powered workshop from the rushing Ottauquechee River. Just over an hour away in Castleton Vermont, designers and artisans were working metals and other materials, creating beautiful handmade lighting at Hubbardton Forge.

“It’s amazing that two companies, only 60 miles apart, have taken this long to find one another for a collaboration” said David Kitts, Director of Design at Hubbardton Forge.
