The art of ceramics in Australia.

Pottery is one of the oldest of all crafts. It also remains, despite its modern sophistication, one of the most accessible of the arts - easily appreciated and practised by people across the world. In this film, potters including Japanese master potter Shoji Hamada are shown at work, both teaching and practising the art of ceramics, making objects on a wheel and forming various types of containers.
