Dancing On The Pottery's Wheel


Share Story

In an intriguing fusion of visual and performance art, Russian ceramics artist Mikhail Sadovnikov draws a seemingly endless series of patterns with wet clay(also known as silp) on a spinning potters wheel.The process is incredibly mesmerizing to watch in motion, as Sadovnikov uses just his hands and a few simple tools to transform the blank surface of the wheel into a myriad of striking, perfectly symmetrical designs.

With just a turn of the wrist or a pass of the palm, the artist can alter the patterns completely, transforming smooth rings into zigzagging lines or overlapping swirls. The elegant forms are short-lives, undergoing constant metamorphoses and changes, but that fleeting quality only makes each design more beautiful.
