Availability information for this program

This popular series of 26 short films shows artisans at work. Each film is set to music with no narration. Winner of the Erasmus Bridge Award.

Episodes:

  • Emily Myers Throws A Pot

    Emily kneads and bangs the clay - a process known as 'wedging'. This is essential to remove air bubbles and make the clay workable. She then throws the clay onto the wheel and shapes the pot using her hands, brushes and card as tools. She uses water to lubricate the clay so that her hands glide over it. When the pot is dry it is fired twice, first without glaze at 1000#C and secondly, after glazing, at a higher temperature. The whole process lasts about 4 hours, but takes place over several days.

  • Hikmet Barutcugil Paints On Water

    To make the background Hikmet lightly loads his brush with oil paint and splatters it onto the surface of the water. He zigzags a metal stylus through the paint to change the design, then runs a fine comb across the length of the design. With a stylus he carefully places pools of green and red, then moves the stylus through the paint to make the shapes of stems, leaves and flowers. After wiping the edge of the trough, he carefully places the paper over his painting, making sure there are no air bubbles trapped underneath. After waiting a few seconds, he carefully draws the paper off the trough from one edge, and hangs it up to dry.

  • Shaunna Harris Makes Up An Old Man

    After laying out her equipment and protecting the man's clothes, Shaunna flattens his hair with wet soap ready for a bald cap. She talks to him as she works, to relax him. She applies pale make-up under his eyes and dries it with a hair dryer to wrinkle the skin. She fits the bald cap to his head, carefully disguising the edges. She adds a little synthetic hair and a moustache and yellows his teeth with yellow decay tooth enamel. The whole process has taken about two hours; the younger the actor, the longer it takes!

  • Jackie Hickman Shoes A Horse

    Jackie arrives at the stables and sets up her mobile anvil and tools. Sailor, the horse, is led out and given some hay to distract him, although none of this process hurts him. Jackie uses pincers to prize off the old shoe. Next, she cleans out any dirt and growth from the foot, before filing down the edge of the hoof. Jackie tries a new shoe against Sailor's hoof to see how it fits. She heats the horseshoe in her mobile forge and hammers it into shape on the anvil. She fits the hot shoe against his hoof. (This doesn't hurt him.) She beats holes into it and cools it in a bucket of water. Finally, she fixes the shoe onto Sailor's hoof using metal nails and gives his hoof a final file. This method of shoeing a horse is called 'hot shoeing'. It is the best way to shoe a horse because adjustments can be made to the shoe to make sure it fits exactly.

  • Megumi Biddle Does An Origami

    Megumi takes a square of orange and pink paper. She folds and creases it firmly to become a bird in flight. Next, she takes a piece of yellow paper. She folds it in half and cuts out a shape. With a few folds and bends, it has become a dog - a companion for her own! Lastly she folds small lilac squares into the delicate petals of a flower.

  • Peter Faulkner Makes A Coracle

    Peter axes some hazel branches and lays them out in a criss-cross fashion on a special table. He bends the branches up to make the sides of the boat and ties them in position. He clips any overlap and ties the branches to the rim of the boat (the gunwale). He weaves small branches of willow around the frame in the base of the boat and near the gunwale to add strength. He adds a wooden seat. He turns the boat over and attaches a cow hide, waterproofed with lanolin (sheep's wool oil). Lastly he makes a paddle from local ash wood. Peter carries his boat to a local river and paddles downstream.

  • Kate Wells Sews A Picture

    The program opens with Kate near her home painting a landscape in watercolors. She paints the outlines of fields and trees, then fills in the landscape with carefully mixed colors. Back in her workshop, Kate starts to sew on her specially adapted, electric sewing machine. First she sews the outline of the fields and hills, which she has already drawn on the fabric. Then she fills in areas of color, ' painting' with stitches of colored thread. Sometimes she uses zigzag stitches, sometimes running stitches. As she chooses threads and sews the picture, she is continually looking at her original watercolor. Sewing inside a hoop, she moves the material backwards and forwards and from side to side. For her final embroidery she makes different stitches to add texture and overlays different color-mixes.

  • Brian Westood Makes A Marble

    Brian's helper prepares the glass for Brian by melting it in a furnace on a long rod. He also adds strips of colored glass and powders of ground glass to color the marble before handing it over. Brian twists and bends the molten glass with tweezers to make swirls of color. He shapes the glass against a paddle and removes part of it to roll it into a round shape. Finally he cuts the marble off from the rest of the glass and smooths the join with a blowlamp to make a perfectly round marble. Each marble takes at least 10 minutes to make. The program finishes with a display of just some of the glass marbles made at the House of Marbles in Devon.

  • Duncan Hamilton Carves An Ice Horse

    Working in icy temperatures Duncan lays a paper design of the horse on a rectangular block of ice and traces the design. He uses a chain saw to cut out the main shape, then upends the ice to make a 3-D horse from a 2-D outline. Looking closely at pictures of horses, he carves out the horse's head using the finest Japanese Samurai chisels. Finally he sprays the sculpture with water to remove small ice chips and polish the surface.

  • Robin Wood Turns A Wooden Bowl

    Robin chops a slice from an elm log with the grain running across the wood. He draws a circle on the wood and cuts the rough shape of a solid bowl, using an axe. In his workshop, he hammers a pole into the wood to attach it to his lathe. Working the treadle with his foot to turn the wood back and forth, he uses special tools to carve the outside and then the inside of the bowl. Finally he shaves off the wood which was attached to the lathe and makes it smooth. The whole process takes him about an hour.
