When pewter met ceramics...

My entry for the national pewterers guild anual competition.
A project devoted to using pewter plus the option of using other materials.

Combining the two materials, ceramics and pewter, I am designing a
jewelery range of brooches and pendants.

My final designs are currently still ongoing but the marrying of the
two materials make quite beautiful objects.
I have been using old, broken and lost fragments from my last
project but of the pieces are colourful and pretty and suit well
with the attractiveness of the shiny metal.

Below are my current prototypes and also the making process.
Sandcasting an abstract shape into the sand and
channeling the molten pewter through and around the ceramic.
