This is the only complete film available on the world-renowned artist potter Bernard Leach, one of the most influential craftsmen of the 20th century.
The resulting documentary film is a charming presentation of the daily activities at The Leach Pottery. This locally-made film, now restored and released for the first time on DVD with the cooperation of the late Janet Darnell Leach, and narrated commentary by Warren Mackenzie, provides an especially intimate look at The Leach Pottery.
MacKenzie's excellent voice-over commentary helps explain the workings - artistic, personal, economic - of the pottery.
UPDATE: Several months after the initial DVD release of this film, a 1/4 audio tape reel was discovered in a box of films donated by the widow of film distributor John Anderson containing Bernard Leach's previously lost narrative for this film. This new edition includes this historic audio commentary.
