Clay has been an obsession for most of my life, with the focus particularly on tableware. Form and function are my over-riding concerns as is attention to detail. The design process excites me and it is usually during the making that new work evolves. The teapot form interests me the most because of the design challenges and scope for expression that if offers.” - Chris Weaver
