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.

Paul has been designing and making quality crafts for over 35 years. He works directly from ancient and historical sources to create original designs and a timeless feel. His unique etching process enables him to transfer the most intricate designs into silver, bronze and other alloys. Paul's work has been admired and purchased by the Art Institute of Chicago, M.H. de Young Museum, York Archeological Trust, Greenpeace (UK), the British Museum, and countless other retail outlets over the years.
