Member of the Association of British Pewter Craftsmen
I started making “Pewter Art” approximately 22 years ago.
Much of the inspiration for my designs comes from the natural world and the flexibility of pewter enables me to recreate the beauty of nature in every small detail.
I have worked at various times with brass, copper and silver, but the malleability of pewter enables quite intricate repoussé techniques to be used.
Repoussé demands a great deal of control, sensitivity and understanding of the pewter. It is possible to make very simple designs and shapes, or more technical and challenging designs including inlays, inserts and cut outs.
A well-executed design can take a great deal of time, with each mark made by hand, working from the back and the front of the pewter.
