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. Trained by a master craftsman in Germany, Wolfgang continues the ancient tradition of carving each of his original designs out of pewter by hand. He makes a mould and casts limited editions, continuously creating new designs. Each piece is then individually hand finished by Wolfgang to create the final piece of art. He owes his success over the past 40 years to his dedication in creating new designs using his incredible gift.
All of Wolfgang’s designs are made from non-toxic, lead free Australian pewter. Using a mixture of silver, tin and bismuth. Giving the products more of a silver finish than traditional pewter products.
All jewellery is silver plated with sterling silver.
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.
All products have a life time guarantee, if the product breaks or somehow discolours due to no reason of your own we will happily send you a brand new piece!
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.
Our pewter is very highly finished and should last a life time. It shouldn’t need any kind of maintenance but if it ever does just follow the above directions and your pewter ware should shine up like new.
If you have purchased jewellery it has been silver plated with sterling silver. He makes a mould and casts limited editions from lead free Australian Silver Pewter always creating new designs. All pieces are hand finished.
