Master craftsman Antoine Chaudron's workshop is located in the village of Val-David in the Laurentians. It mainly produces cast pewter products.
Our pewter is made from an alloy that according to North American standards contains at least 92% tin. This alloy is lead free, therefore our products are non-toxic and do not tarnish.
Pewter is probably the first metal used by man as tin is easily extracted from the earth and has a low fusion temperature thus being relatively simple to exploit. Down through the centuries, pewter has held an important place, in the service of man, in the fabrication of ancient kitchen utensils, medical tools, religious objects and warriors' shields.
The workshop also creates sculptures, medals and trophies; unique and limited edition pieces.
It has been over 25 years now that Antoine Chaudron has taken over the family business. It is with the same love for this art and a unique father-son companionship that Atelier Bernard Chaudron moves on to the second generation.
