Sometimes referred to as the “Clown of the Sea”, the Atlantic Puffin is beloved for its cuddly appearance, colourful beak and endearing behaviour. But look a little closer and discover a strong, hard-working individual with a steadfast devotion to home and family. Eight months of its year are spent alone out on the open ocean, hundreds of miles from land. But as Spring breeding season approaches, it makes the incredible journey back to rejoin its lifelong mate in the very same burrow where it nested its young the previous year. In the excitement of this reunion, the couple may be seen “billing” – rubbing their beaks together – in a demonstration of their affection for each other. Appearances can be deceiving - this small, amusing-looking creature possesses hidden abilities and talents with a toughness and fidelity we can all learn from. Remember that there is often so much more to a book beneath the cover.

  • The artisans at Amos Pewter are proud to be keepers of time-honoured pewter practices and methods while at the same time offering innovative designs inspired by nature and our beautiful coastal surroundings.

    Amos Pewter's artisans carefully ladle hot, free-flowing molten pewter from the melting pot and capture it in a spinning mould formed from a wax sculpture carved in detail to mirror the original hand-drawn design. Once removed from the mould, each piece is carefully hand-finished in a process that ensures excellence in craftsmanship.

    Amos Pewter was the first artisan shop in Nova Scotia to become a member of the international Economusee network whose mission is to showcase traditional trades and skills. Amos Pewter is crafted in picturesque Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia.
