Biography: Henry Hopkins III, Silversmith

Baltimore MD.  Apprenticed to his father, Henry P Hopkins Jr., who started a silversmithing shop in a converted 1891 carriage house in the Mt. Vernon area of downtown Baltimore in 1950. Born in 1958, Henry III was taken to the studio as a child, later beginning to actually make very basic pieces at the age of 12 or 13. 2018 will be 40 years of his working, self-employed, in this studio, the last 30 with his father, who is now 100 years old, and retired.

He worked side by side with his father through high school and also while he was attending Maryland Institute College of Art, where he received a BFA in 1982. Through experience he gained the skills necessary to make and restore sterling silver, gold, and other metal items.

By watching and helping his father, he gained the necessary experience to make maces for Universities, Chalices, for churches, and Presidential Ensignia (large Sterling and gold necklaces worn by deans and presidents of Universities during graduations) as well as Baptismal fonts for churches here in MD and in several southern states.

Maces made by Henry III include University of Chicago, St Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore, and The College of Osteopathic Medicine in Philadelphia and Georgia. Sterling Silver Trophies for the Maryland Hunt Cup Steeplechase
