Form is of utmost importance to Chris Weaver. He makes clay tableware that is generally devoid of surface decoration - the last thing he wants is for any embellishment to hide the form. They are strong forms that reflect their functionalism, but they are never sterile, are superbly made and sensitively detailed.
