The highly skilled craftsmen create individual pewter peices using age-old spinning techniques. A flat disk of pewter (a lead free alloy of metals comprised of 93% tin and 7% mixture of antimony, copper and bismuth) is clamped into the spinner's lathe where it is gently formed into the desired vessel or shape. This time-honored artistry remains as one of the oldest crafts in American history. The learning process for a spinner---from apprentice to journeyman to master--can take ten years or more. A spinner's patience and skill combine to create heirloom quality pewter that will be handed down through generations.
