David Clarke's Modified Teapots

I'm loving David Clarke's refashioning of old and unwanted teapots into new and interesting pieces that juxtapose the formality of silver with raw materials like lead and solder. Although, I must say that his description of his process could easily double as a serial killer's confession on Law and Order. Case in point:
'I only bid on the most unwanted, most unloved; the ones closest to the [garbage] bin. I only buy the one that no one desires. I want to give them a new start in life, a second chance. they come to me; I study them, handle them; I cut them almost surgically, with precision, accuracy, and focus. at this point they are released from their history; they are free to start afresh.'
