Descended from one of the 18th century's finest Colonial America pewter-smiths, Fred Danforth carries on the tradition of hand-spinning pewter holloware. Designed by both Fred and Judi, their pewter is made from the finest alloy of tin, antimony and copper, and is hand-finished through a traditional process that lends the pewter its lustrous satin radiance.

It is surprisingly graceful and fluid to watch - a dance of hand and eye, of spinning metal and simple, trusted tools. There is a rhythm and a mystique to it, a satisfaction in creating each new piece of pewter by hand.
