Project: Recycled pewter

August 2013

Bowls, cake stands, apero dishes, fruit bowl, handmade from recycled lead-free pewter

The “Oester” (oyster) range is hand cast pewter, molten but not yet at the highest temperature, so it flows less easily. Hence the irregularities are more pronounced. The craters and bumps formed during the handcasting process.

The finished bowl B 20cm, H 3,5 to 9cm

The “paarlemoer” range (mother of pearl) is also hand cast, but at a higher temperature. When turning the molten pewter in the steel mould, it creates lines that show how the pewter flowed. The bowls are 16 to 19 cm wide and 4 to 6 cm high. The weight is between 250 and 300 gr.
