Ceramic designs spin to life in a tactile meditation on the art of pottery

Capturing the deeply tactile process of making ceramics from start to finish, the US multimedia artist Gordon Moore’s short film Rain Pot (2020) is a meditative look at the ancient art form of pottery. Moore kneads, fires and spins life into the clay, documenting his process while integrating stop-motion animations created from spinning the earthenware, causing his rustic designs to dance. Through the process, animations and the sound of rain throughout, Moore seems to emphasise both the essential and cyclical qualities of the work.

Director: Gordon Moore
