The artisans at Amos Pewter are proud to be keepers of time-honoured pewter practices and methods while at the same time offering innovative designs inspired by nature and our beautiful coastal surroundings.
Our artisans carefully ladle hot, free-flowing molten pewter from the melting pot and capture it in a spinning mould formed from a wax sculpture carved in detail to mirror the original hand-drawn design. Once removed from the mould, each piece is carefully hand-finished in a process that ensures excellence in craftsmanship.
Each piece of pewter that leaves our shelves is thoughtfully chosen by someone with a particular sentiment or memory in mind. We have been fortunate to have many customers share stories of our pewter designs with us. Beginnings and endings. Laughter and tears. Milestones and memories. We are honoured to play a part in so many lives.
Amos Pewter was the first artisan shop in Nova Scotia to become a member of the international Economusee network whose mission is to showcase traditional trades and skills. We are located in open studios in scenic Mahone Bay, on the vibrant Halifax Waterfront, picturesque Peggy's Cove and at lively Peake's Quay in Charlottetown, P.E.I. Take part in our hands-on experience where you can finish and personalize your own pewter keepsake an experience, uniquely Amos.
For the past 13 years, the friendly faces of volunteers of the IWK Auxiliary have been greeting arriving cruise ship passengers at the Amos Pewter kiosk in the Dockside Shops at the Pier 22 Cruise Pavilion in Halifax. The success of this partnership has resulted in over $400 000 in funds raised to support the work of the Auxiliary. The Auxiliary provides financial and volunteer support to a variety of IWK Health’s programs and departments which provide health services for children, youth, women and families in the Maritime provinces.
This year, Amos Pewter is pleased to be able to donate the proceeds of our new pewter Hug Pocket Charm to the Auxiliary. Send a Hug to someone special to thank them for being who they are and doing what they do and know that in doing this you are also supporting the health of our children, youth, women and families.
