5 Part Documentary Film Tracing the Evolution of American Ceramics -Part one begins by asking: What is a potter?" "What is clay?" and "What makes a pot a vessel?" These issues are examined from the perspectives of contemporary potters, historians and art critics.
The film goes on to explore American ceramics' background by examining its European origins. Museum curators and art historians talk about the astonishing work of turn-of-the-century artists such as Maria Longworth Nichols, Adelaide Alsop Robineau, and the Rookwood Art Pottery.
