Spinning Pewter and Aluminium

Pewter and Aluminium samples of a process called spinning.
Due to these metal being fairly malleable i was able to use a lathe and a wooden mould to shape the metals into bowls.

The bowls have indents and tears to them created by the tools and the wooden mould.
Some have the wood grain imprinted on the surface from the pressure of the lathe machine.

Exhibited at the Dulwich House
