Louise McBeath Schoepp
Under our studio name of Innovative Artisans Fine Pewter, my husband Al Schoepp and I create unique handmade free-form decorative pewter bowls and platters, hanging ornaments and castings in our home-based studio near Warburg, Alberta, Canada. Together we create innovative pieces from molten lead-free pewter which is a beautiful tin alloy. Due to our technique that we use to create our bowls and platters, each one is different. Pewter does not tarnish, has a lovely silvery colour and can have a brilliant shine. We chose to work with pewter for these very reasons. We also design and make bookmarks, buttons, hairclips, hanging ornaments and pendants inspired by Alberta, Canada and my homeland of North East Scotland.
Our pewter is available for purchase in several Alberta galleries, online via our Etsy shop or directly from us. We also attend some art/craft shows with our pewter and other works.
