Chris Weaver, Leaf cut series white teapot.                    

Chris lives in Hokitika, South Island’s rugged west coast of New Zealand.  Weaver specializes in domestic ware and uses white high-firing clay body sections that are wheel-thrown, cut, altered and assembled to create an interesting form.  I love his attention to form and detail.  

“I like my pots to have a simplicity of form and something of a sculptural presence. Attention to detail and truth to the material and process are also what I try to achieve in my work.”
