Behind the scenes in an atelier in France, the renovation of a kitchen in an English-style castle in Westchester is beginning to come to life. Karen Williams has selected pewter bar area countertops for their old-world charm and beautiful patina.
After careful checking and double checking of drawings and specifications, the hands-on work has begun. First, the wood base is meticulously fabricated.
Then the pewter is laid over the base.
Then the metal artisans begin the hand work of applying the pewter, using age-old techniques.
Karen Williams regularly seeks out one-of-a-kind resources in the U.S. and abroad for her discriminating clients. Like this handcrafted pewter countertop, her special sources always bring a unique touch to her projects.
Next up: the countertop and a French range arrive at the Westchester location.
