David Clarke

A couple of friends emailed me a link to this guys website and his work is absolutely amazing. I love love love it. David Clarke is a British artist whose work relates to the "entrenched traditions of silversmithing, often taking it to surprising extremes." He challenges ideas of historical silver and metalwork and creates completely unusable flatware that is beautiful and flawless.
He is a newly discovered hero of mine:)
These are all electro plated nickel silver and pewter.
