The Ceramicist

This is a video montage that my friend Emily Ormonde and I made for a school assignment. It stars the talented Grace Boyd as she makes plates for a school assignment of her own.

This was actually the first time I saw someone make something on the pottery wheel, and it was pretty much the coolest. The studio wasΒ a beautiful mess. Students work was scattered throughout the room. A big thanks goes out to Grace and the students at U of M who let us film in their classroom.




Emily and I filmed for about seven hours one Saturday afternoon, and then took another six to seven hours to edit the footage. It was a long process for such a short video, but we had the best time. It was a great learning experience in filming, editing and ceramics.

When we finished, we were super happy.
