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.

A trio of tiny tin toy teapots--an instant collection, available on etsy and one that would be so much fun to add to over the years.
