Mark-making and its effects

Related to this previous post on the matter. I’ve since made a hand-bound book of the work I made back then, with a cover relating to raised texture. 

I found the repetitive nature of this very alluring, and have since used a spoon to further explore the effects of repetitive mark-making on a thrown vessel while it is still on the wheel.

Mark-making can be seen as a narrative form, documenting movement on paper or clay etc. also book on Wabi-sabi.  Japan as valuable to us specifically!


I also recently came across these works by Dan Lam.  They feel visually very intense with their aggressive texture.
