David Clarke teapot


Clarke is easily the most prominent avant-garde figure in the area of silversmithing here in the UK and has a well earned reputation for creative thinking and innovation.

Clarke now devilishly takes antique solid silver objects, treasured by many and preserved by museums and ‘messes’ with them.
Clarke strips it of its value by allowing lead to erode the silver.
The first in a new collection entitled “Dead on Arrival.” will definitely take the world of silversmithing to a new level.

Ah, I see, as I look backward through your posts-- Clarke is playing with the pot, and our very ideas of consumption, maybe? I'm more a form AND function person, but I can't deny this is a gorgeous object!

Peace, Mari

Deconstruction is one of my favorite ways to create. It takes the clone and turns it into a unique piece of art.
