Australian Wildflower Pewter- Wolfgang & Janette Schulze, Coffs Harbour NSW
Wolfgang Schulze was trained in metal smithing by a master craftsman in Germany. To express his creativity he started enamelling which led to pewter work depicting wildflower designs in jewellery to which were added spoons, candlesticks, cheeseboards etc. Wolfgang uses knives, chisels, files and a rotary tool to carve his intricate designs out of pewter. He makes a mould and then reproduces limited editions. Each piece is hand finished by Wolfgang. He continues to create new designs and his wife Janette is involved by bringing the feminine aspect to each design.
