Christopher Shaw

Chris works primarily out of Seward Park Clay Studio in Seattle, Washington. Chris says:
"I am an artist who works primarily through the ceramic medium. Much of my work consists of focused examinations of consciousness. Meditations on the mind, mindfulness and cognitive awareness.

My teaware is designed and formed specifically for brewing fine quality teas in the gongfu tea method. A tea enthusiast, I collected and drank teas for years before I approached the task of crafting my own tea objects. I view this style of tea as modern and responsive. Though rooted in tradition, techniques and technologies are constantly refined and reincorporated to form a dynamic evolving artistic culture.

The true beauty of tea lies in the unity of innumerable and ephemeral tea aromas into a spectrum of experience. Tea offers an aesthetic continuum containing and expressing every moment of a life and every mode of existence."
