Wolfgang lives on a 57 acre ex-banana plantation. Over the past 18 years it has been returned to bush from which Wolfgang receives his inspiration. Wolfgang was trained by a master craftsman in Germany and arrived in Australia in 1960. In 1963 he started working with enamel. After some successful exhibitions began his own style of Australian Wildflower designs in pewter. He is one of the few craftsmen continuing the ancient tradition of carving each original design out of pewter by hand. He makes a mould and casts limited editions from lead free Australian Silver Pewter always creating new designs. All pieces are hand finished.
Please be aware that because each piece is hand finished they will appear that way. Not all designs are exactly alike and will have some slight differences in finish. All products are inspected before being sent and all care is taken to give you the best product possible.
Caring for pewter is relatively easy. The metal is susceptible to damage by acids, so it should always be promptly washed with gentle soap and warm water if it has been exposed to things like vinegar or lemon juice. It should be washed with a sponge or soft cloth to avoid scratching the metal, and dried thoroughly. Pewter can also be cleaned with specialised polish, although people should not use generic metal polish on pewter, as it can damage the metal.
Consumers should also be aware that pewter melts at low temperatures, and it should not be exposed to extreme heat.
