Japanese Pottery Film

Here is a link to a 1955 film I recently watched on Japanese pottery production. The first 22 minutes show how stoneware clay was mined, wedged, formed, glazed and fired. The latter 8 minutes documents porcelain manufacturing. It’s mesmerizing, especially the application of decorative motifs. The film is posted on the Met’s website.
