Pottemageren - en håndværker

Erik Skibsted, Denmark, 1983

40 min.DK/Documentary

The film was made at Hans-Jørgen Knudsen's pottery in Præstø. Before him, his father and grandfather were both potters and went about their task much in the same manner as Knudsen today, nor has the pottery changed much. In the film we watch how a soup pail is made, how complicated the work process is, and how the living material determines the outcome.
