Description

Share

How the plaque was made…

The Red squirrel design, created by sculptor Kirsty Armstrong, was first sculpted in modelling wax, and after the initial mould was taken replicas were then made by hand in cold-cast Pewter.

These were then polished, buffed and waxed and finished in Kirsty’s studio in the far north of England.

What can the tin be used for?…

The tinplate tins are well made and food can safely be stored in them. They are 13cm square and approximately 5cm deep internally. The tins are washable, however, the lid should only be wiped clean with a soft damp cloth and not submerged in water.
