  • Description

    Mevagissey, Cornwall.

    M/S of a potter (Bernard Moss) at work, he is pouring liquid clay ("slip") into small moulds. C/U of his face as he concentrates on his work and of the moulds. C/U of figures being taken out of the moulds ready for his wife Maureen to paint.

    Bernard takes one of the figures to Maureen who sits at a table and paints the figures. C/U of Maureen's face as she concentrates on her painting. C/U of the figures being painted and of a paintbrush being loaded with slip. "Nodding heads" are then placed into the body of the figure. C/U of lots of the finished figures - they all have nodding heads - very bizarre! High angle shot of lots of the nodding headed figures. C/U of a mobile made of little clay fish - rather cute.
