About JAO Originals


Copper Cookware by JAO Originals

JAO Originals is the product of a lifetime spent working metal.  Originally starting out in aircraft
I branched into hand metal spinning and fabrication and found something I loved to do.  Hand
metal spinning is a dying art with the work becoming more and more automated.  At one time
there were many fabrication shops in the USA that offered metal spinning services but
they have slowly disappeared leaving small shops like me to concentrate on our specific
niches.  Cookware happens to be my niche.

Everything comes into the shop as raw material.  Copper sheets are sheared into squares before
going to the circle shear.  The steel sheets go to the laser to be cut into round blanks.
Round blanks are what is needed for spinning the material into pots and pans.  All of the handles
are made by laser cutting the needed shapes before starting the finishing and bending process.

Every pot and pan must have a form that is mounted on the spinning lathe before the forming
process can start.  The form is what gives the copper it's final shape.  Pure copper has a limit to
how far it can be worked before it work hardens.  Once hardened, it must be annealed before
you can continue.  Annealing is a very time consuming process that some companies avoid by
using alloyed copper.  The alloys allow them to form the piece without annealing.  Not at JAO
Originals!  I use commercially pure C110 copper and anneal as many times as required.

This is just a small look at what goes on behind the scenes here in my shop.  In today's modern
world it is getting harder and harder to find quality products that are made to last.  Here at JAO
Originals, the old ways still live on and a lot of pride goes into every piece I make.
