Pewter Sky was born when Phil Atkin discovered the magic of modern pewter. Since he was young, Phil has been fascinated by molten metal but he never imagined that he would become a pewter craftsman. For many years he expressed his creativity through the medium of computer graphics. But his love of nature inspired him to find a means of creating art that was both beautiful and useful, and in a happy coincidence, he found his muse in a workshop offered by one of the UK's leading pewtersmiths.
Since then Phil has been casting pewter homewares using time-honoured craft techniques. The work is labour-intensive -- each piece is created by hand pouring molten pewter into an individual rubber mould. Phil's inspiration comes from shells he has discovered on beachcombing expeditions in Cornwall, New England and the Mediterranean. He also casts pieces from exotic shells given to him by friends who know of his passion for pewter.
Pewter Sky's salt & pepper sets are featured at fine restaurants including The Dining Room in Rock, Cornwall and Tremenheere Kitchen near Penzance. To purchase our homewares in the UK, visit one of these fine shops and galleries. Pewter Sky products are also available in our online Shop, where you will find a wide range of tableware as well as decorative items. All of our work is hand cast and finished in our studio near the sea in beautiful Cornwall.
