Pete Smit

Born in South Africa in 1947, Pete Smit was raised on the magnificent Cape Peninsula. In 1970 he headed for Australia, and soon discovered himself better suited to more practical pursuits than he had been used to. More importantly, Pete Smit very soon realised that he had arrived in the land of his dreams, and he embraced this new freedom with great enthusiasm.

After much wandering, Pete Smit and his wife Louise moved to Queensland to set up home. Working from their leafy Samsonvale farm, Pete and Louise cast all their own work, thereby eliminating the delays and hassles associated with foundries and bronze castings. As a result of many years spent working in the bush, Pete has a deep respect and understanding of nature, and relies on this for his inspiration. Pete Smit handcrafted solid bronze is designed and cast by Pete and Louise Smit in their Queensland foundry, using the 3000 year old Lost Wax Process.
