Historic Hooksett Medallion

The Hooksett Heritage Commission is pleased to offer a Hooksett-inspired glass medallion created by League of NH Craftsmen member and glass artist Chris Salmon. As the principal designer of Old Hancock Glassworks in Antrim, Salmon has designed and created commemorative items for Yellowstone National Park, the White House, Monticello, and over 50 museums and landmark sites through the United States. The pressed glass medallion is made of post-consumer, recycled glass using 600-year-old techniques Chris first learned in Germany and perfected at the Rhode Island School of Design.

The first medallion is a depiction of the Hooksett Village School (1937). The 3″ collectibles are available in blue and green for $10 each. Quantities are limited. Whether called sun catchers, ornaments, or collectibles, these medallions are a Hooksett keepsake you will want to have.

The medallions will first be available at the Heritage Commission table at Old Home Day on Saturday, September 24.
