Entrepreneur and Maple Lake native takes copper to a whole new level


An authentic coppersmith work station where artists still make and design copper goods by hand.

President of CopperSmith, Ryan Grambart, 30, started the company in 2009.

An authentic Algerian serving tray, hand hammered from pure copper, with traditional Constantine design.

Ryan Grambart, president of CopperSmith, had his first start right here in the Maple Lake area. At the age of 30, Grambart has really made a name for himself in the copper industry.
Starting with gutters, he has moved on to copper sinks, stove hoods, bathtubs, tables, lighting, decor and more. The company has also reached out to many countries for copper artists and showcases the real deal when it comes to anything copper. As an entrepreneur, Grambart shows us that with a little hard work and a good idea anyone can be successful.
Grambart grew up in Silver Creek, going to school in the area. He was (and still is) an avid fisherman and sportsman.
"I got my start in installation. I had worked for a farmer and most of my jobs dealt with working with my hands," Grambart said.

Trend: Greenscaping

The right tools for the job can be the difference between an interminable landscaping project and one that goes smoothly and efficiently. Aspiring landscapers probably have a few shovels and rakes hanging in their garages and sheds for basic landscaping work.
