Quirky Ornate Silverware
The 'Yeaha' Teapot Series by David Clarke is Vintage-Inspired

By: Jana Pijak (Superstar) Dec 13, 11

The ‘Yeaha’ teapot series by David Clarke combines the silversmith’s unconventional approach to metalwork with an artful vintage-inspired aesthetic. The artist puts emphasis on the decorative aspects of pieces while exposing the raw properties of their materials.

These delicate and ornate objects are functional and aesthetically stunning. The artist’s experimentation with materials includes the use of salts and leads to chemically alter silverware. These modern art pieces look to the past, at times resembling different shapes and taking on different roles.

While some silverware resembles the female form, other pieces take on the shape of a vintage stove. These pieces are artful with the patina and texture associated with objects of the past. The artist’s use of old teapots for his transformed art pieces give the original discarded objects a second chance at life.
