Hometown: Cheshire, CT
Bovano of Cheshire’s slogan is, “Glass and Metal Sculptures Fired by Imagination," and that’s just what you’ll find from this Cheshire, Connecticut studio. The company began in 1952 with handcrafted enamel sculptures, and since then, it’s been passed down from generation to generation. Today, the family-owned company is run by Jim Flood, who continues to make the same intricate enamel sculptures as Bovano of Cheshire made from the very beginning.
Bovano of Cheshire now occasionally uses modern technology to craft its intricate enamel pieces, while still maintaining the same handcrafted quality. The company specializes in using copper enamel to create small sculptures of nature scenes, botanical displays and marine life. They also create sculptures of boats, hot air balloons and other unique hobbies that make wonderful gifts to last a lifetime.
