The Teapot & Cups Weather Vane on top of the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum was handmade in the central California studio of LizAnne and Ken Jensen, owners and artists of West Coast Weather Vanes.
LizAnne and Ken became enchanted by weathervanes on their 1988 honeymoon in New England. As they traveled the New England countryside they spotted whimsical weathervanes on farm houses and buildings. A stop at a roadside shop selling copper weathervanes proved to be serendipitous.
Driving down the road after ordering a copper weathervane, they decided why not? Why not create these fine examples of American folk – a rare sight in their home state of California – themselves. Today their studio, going strong for over two decades, has grown into a consortium of artists working together under their leadership.
