His work is incredibly detailed and best of all, he makes really nasty beasties!! We are very excited to have him working with us.
Matthew has loved art since he was a baby. Ever since that first hand cast he knew this was something he loved to do. At nine years old he sculpted his first piece. Made special, just for his mom. He made a beautiful dragonfly. Then he went to work on his first public piece, the boar beast, seen for sale for the first time in 2001 at the NY Ren Faire. He hopes to have a new piece ready for the 2002 season.
Here is the youngest apprentice pewtersmith in the world. Daniel sculpted his first piece at the tender age of five. Of course, it was a dragonfly for his mom (with a smile on its face). He also works with dad in the foundry. He has his own sculpting table and works diligently trying to come up with his next masterpiece.
