About

Introducing the Wonderland Home Collection! Vintage Silverplate Transformed by food safe fired on color.

I am re-cycled Vintage silver plate
I am food safe
I am eco friendly
I am contemporary
I am a new heirloom

I have worked with silver since I was 14 and apprenticed with a local jeweler. Now it is over 30 years later and I am still fascinated by metal. Old metal and new metal. Or old metal transformed into a new form.

As an antique dealer I collected old silver plate but no one wanted to buy it from me. Everyone had pieces from their family that the kids did not want and they were stored in the attic or basement and in one case I found a lady who had boxes of it in her barn so covered in dirt and mouse droppings I had to wear a mask to take it out! Suddenly I found a new mission in my artistic life to renew this old metal into something that people want now and would pass down to the next generation as an inheritance. Using my 30 years of experience working with metals I started exploring ideas and options that were environmentally responsible.

After a lot of trial and error I developed this enamelware collection of old silver plate and aluminum serving pieces. They are sandblasted, then powder enameled and fired in a kiln. The "new" pieces are in contemporary colors, food safe and very durable. Best of all you never have to polish again and they are not going into the dump to never decompose!

So now I bring The Wonderland Collection to you. Being the only person doing this in the country it is hard to put it in a category to be found on searches so if you have managed to stumble upon my shop here WELCOME and please send your friends over! If you have any questions please email, and please like me on facebook using the link here.

Custom orders to transform your family heirlooms are now being accepted. Just email me.
I am so excited to have been a Martha Stewart American Made Finalist 2014!

Hi, I am a Master Silversmith who also is an antiques dealer. I have always loved the beauty of antique silverplated serving pieces and the attention to detail that we do not have now adays. I wanted to find a way to make the antique contemporary and one night I had a dream where the pieces were all in wonderful colors. It took 3 months to do my research and development of this new collection. It is environmentally safe, copyrighted and unique. Each piece is a one of a kind. Any little "flaws" like tiny dents or warps were accumalated over the many years that the piece was used and loved by previous families. Many of these objects are over a hundred years old and you never have to polish again!

I am so pleased to find a way to use metal that was made years ago and not mining more out of the earth. Thank you for supporting Recycling!
