I’ve been making some small pewter flow bowls, again a request from an ENOS visitor and getting ready for Pittenweem Arts Festival (venue 53; 4th-13th August)
They are cast in sand moulds, include a piece of seaweed and are poured in stages (I’m not sure how to describe that) so that you can see how the metal flows.
I’ve finished these two pairs of Silver Darlings earrings which were commissioned by a couple of visitors to ENOS, I hope they like them. I intend to make a few more for Pittenweem Arts Festival (Venue 53). They are mother of pearl, silver and moonstones; inspired by the herring lassies who followed the silver darlings (yes those are silver herrings)
I started making up some sand moulds today. They are not very photogenic so this is a photo of the spot where I collect sand to use. I like this spot as the sand is quite coarse and is under the sea twice a day as the tide comes in.
