“I create ‘Pewter Art’ using pewter in combination with enamels, semi-precious stones and glass. I design and make a wide range of objects including mirrors, boxes, frames, clocks and decorative panels, all of my works are original.
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 repousee techniques to be used.
Repousse 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.”
