Delightful pottery and lead free pewter from Eugene, Oregon.  Starting with a sketch and then developing a mock-up in paper or clay. From there they create an original by cutting, hammering, texturing, bending, welding, or carving.

The original is then baked in a pressurized rubber mold. Once it has cooled, channels are cut into the mold.

A ladle of molten pewter (at a temperature of 450 degrees Fahrenheit) is poured into the mold while it is spun at high speed in a centrifugal casting machine.

Once they have several castings of the original, they make a production mold. This mold may last only a few months or it may last years. It just depends on how many orders they get for that particular piece.
