Cynthia Webb is a California artist specializing in handcrafted fine pewter. Her work has been internationally recognized for its warm, evocative style and enduring themes of faith, family, and spirit.
Formally trained in architecture, Cynthia began creating original work in jewelry classes in London. She opened Cynthia Webb Designs in San Diego in 1992. Her work is all handcrafted in the USA. The framed pewter pieces are individually signed and titled and may be hung on a wall or displayed on a tabletop.
The collection continues to grow and evolve each year. Her designs range from simple hearts to complex botanicals and words of inspiration. Each one begins with an original sketch. She then carves each design in jeweler’s wax and signs and titles the original. A mold is made from the wax original, allowing duplicate pieces to be created. Each piece is hand-finished, oxidized and polished, and a thin lacquer coating is applied. She takes as much care with the back of the design as she does the front, etching into it intricate details that reflect the design on the front of the piece as well as the title of each creation.
