5. Michael Cardew: Master Potter

05. Michael Cardew: Master Potter

A classic documentary on the late English master potter, Michael Cardew, a main pillar in bringing the tradition of hand-made pottery back to England after it had disappeared when people flocked to the machine-made wares of the Industrial Revolution. At his home and pottery at Wenford Bridge in Cornwall, England, we watch as he wedges clay, throws a bowl on his kick wheel, pulls handles for mugs, decorates a jug and fires his wood-burning kiln, all the while sharing his philosophy of life and making pots. He wrote a memoir, Pioneer Potter, which was published in 1969; and at the time of his death in 1983, he was due to be knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. Produced by Eve Muir. 85/10DE JSCA 30 min.
