This documentary follows French slipware potter, Jean-Nicolas Gérard, as he prepares for his 2013 exhibition at Goldmark Gallery. Jean-Nicolas describes himself as an artisan craftsman who, above all, wants his pottery to be used and enjoyed. His work ranges from small mugs, bowls, plates and dishes to large jars and press moulded platters. All are decorated with slip and many with sgraffito and finger marks. He takes the tradition of European slipware and infuses it with elements from modern painting, medieval earthenware and Japanese pottery. In the film we watch him throwing, glazing and decorating and explore the influences that nature and his surrounding landscape have on his pottery. Included with the film is a slideshow of works from the exhibition and extra short films of throwing and glazing.
