A Spinning Mosaic of Patterns Drawn with Wet Clay on a Potters Wheel performance clay ceramics

As a person that’s spent greater than a few hrs at the seat of a potter’s wheel I can confirm to the strangely soothing act of doodling around with damp clay sludge (called slip) prior to or after throwing a pot. As enjoyable as it is, it’s still somewhat unusual to view the act elevated to this degree of creativity by Michael Gardner which beclouds the line between performance and aesthetic fine art as he makes take after pattern on an empty wheel. FYI: the artist’s name is a Google translation from Russian via YouTube, if any person have more concrete specifics on the performer/artist, send it over. (via The Awesomer)
