This is just to say that I quite love pewter. I find the colour sensational -- a soft satiny grey. It's not all flash like silver. And it ages gracefully, darkening to a deep rich patina -- we should all be so lucky! When I saw this dishware recently I thought it was genius. It's actually stoneware but the glaze is a dead match for pewter. I so love it. And the shapes are just right too -- the octagonal plate is my fave. How amazing would it look set on a super rustic old farm table? I quite love pewter.
p.s. I also quite love the work of John Saladino -- that's a room by him at the top. People in the biz revere him as a master. I am one of those people. Soon I will prepare an appropriate ode to him, but for now, just this taste.
