Design Inspiration:

The still ocean lays before you, silent but for the ripple of waves. Suddenly, the water is pushed aside by the swell of a humpback whale, arching up and down with a gust of breath. The distinctive whale tail rises majestically, and disappears. One is left to imagine the great being just below. But there may be more to the picture than meets the eye. This mother keeps a child close. She will nurture and care for him for a year as she teaches him the ways of the ocean. We rarely see the entire picture. Only with attention and patience can we get a fuller understanding of the world around us.

  • 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.
