A small number of craftsmen keep the historic art of broom making alive and vibrant. Brian Newton, owner of Broomcorn Johnny's is one of them. Using tools from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Brian, a national prize winning artist and multi-year adjudicated member of the prestigious Early American Lifes' Directory of Traditional American Crafts, is dedicated to creating high-quality, long-lasting, beautiful brooms for his customers.
At his studio, Brian produces a wide range of brooms, including the standard kind used for cleaning floors, smaller ones for more specialized purposes, artistic creations meant for display and reproductions of 18th century pieces. Art brooms, specialty brooms and other one of a kind offerings may be seen at: https://www.etsy.com/shop/BroomcornJohnnys & https://www.facebook.com/bcjohnnys
