• Short Summary

    Processes involved in making pottery urns and figures in Guildford.

  • Description

    Titles read: "The Potter's Art - filmed at Compton, Guildford."

    Various shots show a potter at work on a wheel, men tying a mould together over clay, clay being dug out from a pit and mixed with 'grog' to give it more body using a horse-powered contraption.

    A man works on lumps of clay and fixes it into a mould. The mould is taken away from an urn. Men work on finished figures. Pottery vases and urns are piled up to cool. Women work on figures, painting and finishing them off. A little girl sits on a stone toadstool in a garden beside a pottery squirrel and frog.
