SAS Artisan Harold Schremmer Passes Away at Age 86

Dear Metalsmiths,

Harold Schremmer, arguably the most inventive and creative
silversmith of his time, passed away on December 4th at 10:12am at
the Rhode Island Veterans Home. I was one of Hal’s students at Maine
College of Art in Portland, and was at his bedside for his final
breath. Information about Hal’s life can be found here: with additional commentary

To send a remembrance, please visit the SAS Artisan Memorial page at and fill-out the simple form.

Best regards,

Jeffrey Herman, Founder & Executive Director
Society of American Silversmiths
