Capturing the mesmerizing process of hand-shaped pottery
In this video from NOWNESS , British director Nick Bennett talks about Mug, his filmic portrait of Wales-based studio potters James and Tilla Waters, at work in their Carmarthenshire studio:
“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.
“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.”
