This is the Best Video You'll See All Day: Capturing the Mesmerizing Process of Hand Shaped Pottery

created at: 05/28/2013

Hi, my name is Chris, and I'm a hopeless process nerd. Especially when that process is captured in a video with such amazing colors, sound, and cinematography.       

Filmmaker Nick Bennett visited  Welsh ceramicists James and Tilla Waters in their Carmarthenshire studio. He says, 

The video shows the in-depth, precise processes involved in the craft of James and Tilla. Their partnership combines James’s making skills with Tilla’s love of colour and design. Their practice is rooted in the production of thrown tableware, using both stoneware and porcelain clay bodies. Their partnership combines James’s making skills with Tilla’s love of colour and design. With the film I wanted to emphasize the close natural sounds of James and Tilla’s world, to create a captivating, and at times abstract, reflection of their art.

Mission accomplished, says we. Watch below:
