Each piece is hand designed. I make a clay mold, then a plaster mold in a small box, after it hardens I pull out the clay. I have another flat plaster mold, so I rubber band it together. I heat the pewter in a small cast iron pan on a small burner. After pouring in the molten pewter , it cools, then I can cut off the edges & start filing each piece. I put a patina on it then . Sometimes the molds break & I make new ones . An old fashioned way my mother taught me.
