Starting in 1998 in the pantry of their home in Fall River Massachusetts , Sandra Bonazoli and Jim Dowd turned an historic craft, into a 21st century art form. Using a blend of technical skill and fine design, Sandra and Jim design and produce all of their products by hand with high quality materials.
Inspired by kitchenware found in old homes and flea markets, Sandra and Jim wanted to create artisan crafted kitchenware that would be as beautiful as it was functional, and represented the history of fine quality of craftsmanship and design. Using materials such as lead-free pewter, ceramic, cherry wood and maple wood, they have expanded their original kitchenware line into an array of intricately and skillfully designed handmade products for the home, holidays and keepsake gifts.
Staying with their core values to lower their impact on the environment, Beehive Kitchenware goes above and beyond using only recycled paper, re-used & re-purposed materials, and works with local and national suppliers for product materials. Because Beehive Kitchenware products are made with lead-free pewter, without any electroplating, this protects the health our water.
Beehive Kitchenware has flourished since their humble beginnings in 1998, but still hold firmly to their vision to create quality artisan made products that exemplify skillful craftsmanship while creating artful and functional design.
