• Short Summary

    A visit to the Wedgewood factory shows the skilled workers creating the famous pieces of pottery.

  • Description

    Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.

    M/S of a Wedgewood shop in a city street; a couple look in the window; various pieces of Wedgewood are seen in C/U in the window display.

    Several shots in the Wedgewood factory show pots and plates being made, starting with people working with balls of clay, making the pieces on wheel and shaving off surplus clay. Other workers are seen making crockery pieces by casting - pouring the 'slip' into a plaster mould. Plates are shaped on wheels and stacked onto trolleys.

    This film is accompanied by a great jazz soundtrack.

    Cuts exist - see separate records.
