Maybe you think you don’t have fifteen minutes to watch wet clay spin around in a circle. But you'll be convinced in just a second. This video, made by a Russian potter named Mikhail Sadovnikov, is not only the most entrancing fifteen minutes of wet clay spinning around in a circle that you have ever seen, it's one of the more surprising and beautiful works of art you'll come across.
As Sadovnikov adds different strokes, the design spins and melds and transforms in front of your eyes. Add some soothing yet driving music, and once you start watching it’s really hard to look away. See you in fifteen minutes.
Here’s a behind the scenes look at how that video was created, featuring a few more of Sadovnikov’s moves.
