This comes from the Celebration Series offered from Wendell August. They have so much to offer and not just simple decorating items but truly things you can hand down to your family years later. Everything at Wendell August is made in the USA!
The Celebration Series is meant for life’s special moments. From anniversary’s to straight A’s, making this handcrafted tray part of your celebration is a tradition worth starting. First, top it with cookies, brownies or your favorite cupcakes, then celebrate. In the years to come, this tray will hold the memories of these precious moments.
In a world that moves faster every day, you look forward to special occasions that allow you to pause for a moment and mark time – holidays, showers, weddings, births, graduations, just to name a few. At Wendell August, their mission is to help you celebrate and remember life’s special moments by creating heirloom-quality giftware for you to treasure. Their craft is meaningful to them because life’s moments are meaningful to you.
And where most companies are focused on inventing new technologies, they have investing in old ones. At Wendell August, their expert artisans hand-etch their original designs. Each piece is then hand-wrought by skilled craftsmen, using an eight-step process with its roots in ancient metalworking techniques.
This video really shows how a piece of aluminum turns into a beautiful piece of artwork.
The marks of both the artist and the craftsman can be found on each piece – the artist’s mark is ‘hidden’ in the design, and the craftsman’s mark can be found on the back of every piece. Their metal crafters take pride in their work so that you can be proud to display and to gift their unique designs.
Instant gratification and mass production may have become the norm in our culture, but time-tested traditions and “Made in America” have never gone out of style at Wendell August. Since 1923, their pieces of functional art have been designed to bring that special occasion feeling to your everyday life in a uniquely American way. They take their time so you can celebrate yours.
This is the box the small oval baroque tray arrived in. They really pay attention to every detail so you know how proud and how serious they take their artwork.
I have this blown up so you can see all the wonderful details. This is so pretty. It is aluminum and is 11 x 8 inches. This would be a beautiful gift for any day, wedding, graduation, and a lot more.
This is flat on the bottom and does not have any wobble to it. It just has this unique design all over it. These are not just pressed on a machine, these are hammered out by the craftsman at Wendall August.
This is how it looks when you open the box, what a wonderful surprise. This dish is shiny and will look wonderful for Christmas! Wendall August is a great place to start a tradition with ornaments and more.
All of their products are well made and just beautiful. Please take a look around and let me know your favorites. They have a great catalog that you can pick gifts for anyone from. A special section just for baby gifts. Another section for wedding gifts, another for Christmas ornaments, and don’t forget the wine accessories. They even have a section with 50% off!!
