Maria Santos-Alcántara

Using a combination of enamels, veneers, semi-precious stones or glass. Maria create mirrors, boxes, photo frames and decorative panels.

No two pieces are exactly alike as no casting or pressing is involved. Each piece is worked individually from Maria’s own designs. Much of the inspiration for her designs comes from the natural world and the flexibility of pewter enables her to recreate the beauty of nature in every small detail.

Pewter has an enduring quality and since it does not oxidise, it requires no other care than an occasional dust.

Maria is a member of the worshipful company of pewterers.
