Kруговорот - Mesmerizing Clay Patterns
A Spinning Mosaic of Patterns Drawn with Wet Clay on a Potter’s Wheel.
Famous Russian potter Mikhail Sadovnikov shows his unique ability to create magic images using a simple potter’s wheel in a mesmerizing performance.
Blurring the line between visual and performance art, he creates stunning pattern after pattern, using nothing more than his hands and the spinning of the wheel.
Have a look at the video, It’s very optical and relax. Such a good performance.
