Craft Video: Making clay and wood firing pottery - Jonathan Garratt

Short documentary on the work of Dorset based potter Jonathan Garratt.

This is a really interesting film, spotted on Facebook page 'The Devon Guild of Craftsmen' - I have never seen a kiln like this before, it's amazing and what a skill to know how to use it! Also the way he makes the clay himself and all the various equipment is fascinating. I realise I know very little about pottery!

There's some interesting commentary from Jonathan towards the end on his feelings about the lack of ambassadors for crafts at the moment and his worries about us losing the skill bank we have.

Well worth a watch, I hope you enjoy it too.
