Pewter is an age-old craft that is enjoying a revival today. This book celebrates its heritage and qualities by explaining the techniques that have been used for hundreds of years and continue to be used today. The basic techniques involved with working with pewter are explained and how they can be applied to make a range of exciting pieces far beyond the realms of tankards and hip flasks. The polished lustre of pewter lends to contemporary designs. The modern pewter, lead-free alloy does not tarnish or turn the dull grey colour of the old pewter.
