Weaver is intrigued by the variations of translucency in the natural materials she uses and the way light plays through them. Her objects are constructed from a variety of materials, including gut, seedpods and grasses, thread, and steel. Weaver uses both traditional and unconventional techniques in her work but is inspired by ancient techniques used by Pacific Arctic peoples, who made waterproof rain parkas from the intestinal casings of sea mammals. The main bodies of her pieces are created by applying several layers of hog casing over a form. When completely dry this shell is removed from the form and given a coating of resin and wax. The shapes she selects purposefully suggest classical antique vessels, but, because they are not made of clay or glass, they transcend function and enter the realm of pure form and beauty.
