Chris Mclean is the maker behind ceramic brand TRADE the MARK

For over two decades, Chris has been obsessed with materials – how they speak and what they say. Her most enduring fixation has been with ceramics. Her brightly coloured sgraffito pots and vessels have become highly sought-after. Each piece is imbued with a quiet authority – a textural and rich collection of vessels that hold stories as well as objects. The bold patterns, deep colour palette and pared-back finishes of each vessel speak of Chris’ deep love of the Australian bush, and the guidance she finds there.
