TRADE the MARK is an art and design studio led by artist Christina McLean. Currently focusing on hand built and painted ceramic vessels, bespoke art pieces and textile design, the TRADE the MARK studio and its output is constantly evolving, like Christina herself.
For over two decades, Christina McLean has been obsessed with materials – how they speak and what they say. Her most enduring fixation has been with clay; she’s been glazing, firing, and throwing since she left art school in the early 1990s. What ties Christina’s output together is her unique aesthetic, artistic vision and commitment to hand craftsmanship.
Christina is deeply original, incredibly skilled, slightly mad and finely tuned to the wonder of the natural world. Her work embodies her vision, values and creativity. Within each pot, wall hanging, vase or earring is found a hint of her journey and her values. Every TRADE the MARK object, whether functional or not, is a piece of art, not a product.
