Pewter Project from 2011

As I was just on the previous post explaining about my exhibition opportunity together with pewterer Ella McIntosh, I though of my old project during the second year studies in Camberwell College of Arts. 
It was all about Pewter. I ended up sand casting the malleable metal. As a result I produced three little cups, and the inspiration came from broken domestic china. Here's a little description of the Folly:

When an object brakes, it is often rejected or ignored. Folly pewter bowls celebrates the deliberate defects, cracks on its surface, elevating what might normally be perceived as a negative attribute, into something beautiful.
