| Charming Work By Flaherty.... Perhaps
I just looked at this short semi-documentary, in which an old woman, played by General Custer's widow, and her grand daughter, visit a potter at his studio. We get to watch the potter at his wheel, glazing the greenware, and preparing the kiln for baking his work.

As one of my nieces is a ceramics artist, I cna assure you that the process is largely unchanged. Oh, the wheel is now powered by a motor, and the kiln is heated by electricity, but the craft in forming the working remains unchanged, just as it has for millennia.
