This week we are pleased to be featuring a hand poured silver artist from across the pond in the UK. Silver Stan, the maker of high quality, hand crafted fine silver products. They offer unique silverstan creations, custom made products, as well as bars and rounds. Each piece is hand made to order from high grade fine silver and polished to a magnificent lustre. Where applicable, 3D pours are hallmarked using the Sheffield Hallmarking Service. You can also find various art bars and rounds from other popular mints on their site.
Silver Stan comes from the passion of a great individual named Bob. I've only had the pleasure of knowing Bob for a short while however one thing that is clear to me is his passion for silver and art and helping others. From our brief chats, its obvious he takes great pride in both helping others in need and his beautiful creations. At times, he has leaned heavily upon these passions to help him through difficult times in life. It is inspiring to hear the importance and therapeutic benefits his silver artwork has been for him.
Silver Stan Creations are a collection of unique, hand poured products like the lion and dragon pictured above which are new items for 2017. Previous designs include 5oz silver Lady inspired by the popular "Freedom Girl", 2.5 oz Pirate Doubloon, 7oz Skeleton Stringing Guitar and 1oz pirate round to name a few. All items in the collection are handmade from start to finish, in fine silver and stamped with weight and purity.
Also part of the silverstan creations are beautifully crafted necklaces with various fine silver pendants. A personal favourite is this solid silver heart which is hallmarked and stamped with the makers mark Ss.
An interesting feature which can be added to the 1oz Silver Stan bars is having your initials marked on them. Using hand stamps, your bar can be engraved to be uniquely yours!
Custom pours are something that really make Silver Stan stand apart from others. There is nothing more special and memorable that having your very own, one of a kind piece which was hand made for you. Here are a few examples completed for customers and friends
Something to watch out for in the near future is gold plating on some of the products, it is something he is eager to start experimenting with. Currently, he is doing some antiquing and it could be something to watch out for in the poured silver creations.
