Pewter transmutation by Raphael Volkmer

Published on October 5, 2012

Pewter transmutation is the result of an approach towards experimental artisanry to be performed in a public place. Through the public manufacturing people would be;

  1. I. attracted by the idea
  2. II.informed about the process of making
  3. III.enriched by an object of high personal value

It combines sophisticated handcraft (oak wood) with an low-cost technique of casting pewter into backing paper. Through the creation of reusable wooden tools and due to the low melting point of pewter (230°C) the production is not tied to a particular place or an industrial process and is therby perfect for public manufaturing.
