Fellowship Foundry

Fellowship Foundry (Randal Moore) Heirloom-quality pewter handmade in the Bay Area, from wax design to final hand polishing. Since our beginning in 1978, the combined talents of Master Pewtersmith Randal Moore and our artist Kevin O'Hare have continued to create wonderful designs. They wrangle first over the idea, then sketches, then the wax sculpture until they are both satisfied. We make a metal "master" from the wax, and continue through many steps before we have a finished design. Because we make it all by hand, there are small differences between every single piece.
