I've been making a quaich, which is a type of Scottish drinking vessel, for a competition called Pewter Live. The basis for my design is quite traditional, but I've made a texture with a rolling mill which I've then soldered on (a nightmare job) and given the piece stylised bird skll handles. The piece is actually a little different from the photos - I've added some more texture to the inside of the bowl.
Soldering pewter is difficult. Pewter has a very low melting point, which means that holding a torch to a piece for even a few seconds can melt it. It's nervewracking.
( a couple more.. )
The icon I'm using today is of a bird skeleton that I've made out of wire and a little bit of sheet steel. The photograph is by my friend Maxiie - it's actually taken like a shadow puppet.
