We launched the videos for our second online demonstration this week! Participants have been following along as expert metalsmith David Clemons forms, welds, solders, and finishes an elegant pewter salt shaker. And this Saturday, 2/13, they’ll get to join David for a live Q&A to learn more about his process and get answers to their metalsmithing questions.
Register for David’s demo to take part!
Here’s a small window into the transformation a flat sheet of metal undergoes in David’s hands. Each of the following images is a screenshot taken directly from his prerecorded demonstration.
1. Transferring the vessel template to sheet metal
2. Joining the edges of the pewter into a tapered cylinder
3. Soldering the base of the salt shaker to the body of the vessel
4. Showing off the finished piece—shiny and ready for a place at the table!
David will also be teaching an immersive online workshop on making lidded pewter vessels February 24-27. Register now, or explore all Penland’s upcoming workshops online and in person.
