The Story of Clay...

UNFORTUNATELY THIS VIDEO LINK HAS BEEN REMOVED!!
But you should still hunt for it.... it's a really cool 3 part series by the BBC..


One video that has made the rounds this week on facebook is The Story of Clay.... Ceramics A Fragile History 1 from the BBC, I spotted it on Friday night and bookmarked it for future reference..

Some stand out moments watching Mary Wondrausch sliptrailing, The Sculptures of Lydia Dwight, the daughter of John Dwight who died at the age of 6.... and austerely trailing right at the end THE LOOS!! 'The Crapper'!!

This one just has to be shared!! enjoy if you haven't seen it already :))

BBC Series in to the history of Ceramics from early beginnings to modern day
