[And so it all comes together]



2009

Running time: approx 17 minutes.

Documentary film showing the artists' Grandfather 'throwing' a teapot on the potter's wheel for his first time in 35 years. The film shows the slowness and patience of the process and the remembering of a rarely practiced skill. Intimate shots reveal the beauty of the movement of clay, while the audio explores a personal history with making and the wider responsibilities of a present-day craftsman.
