Pewter and Copper vessel

1980 3.5” x 2.25”

In 1980 I took a pewter workshop taught by Fred Fenster.

This vessel is constructed from a rolled sheet of heavy gauge pewter and then butt welding the seam using thin strips of pewter. It is then shaped using wooden hammers over steel stakes. The bottom is soldered on. The rim was forge tapered and then fitted and soldered to the body.
