A rebirth of tradition; a celebration of craftsmanship. Trade the Mark captures our most primal desire - to connect with the beauty of the natural world. Through a devoted approach of working by hand, one-off pieces are inspired by the unity of natural materials with the act of creativity itself. Blending mindful methods with a freedom of movement, Trade the Mark’s objects embody the practice of mark making and a spirit of discovery.
Christina McLean is the multi-disciplinary artist and maker behind Trade the Mark. Inspired by reimagined traditions and handcrafted object design, McLean’s story is nothing short of a true artisans vision and practice of devotion. To label her work would be to limit the expansiveness imbued in each piece.
Encompassing bold colours and imaginative details, TRADE the MARK’s bespoke wares are inspired by organic textures and hand-sourced treasures from afar. TRADE the MARK pieces are hand made and hand painted by Christina in her Marrickville studio. Each piece is a unique one-off piece of art for you and your home.
