Jerry Brown Pottery

Jerry Brown is in his early seventies, and has been making pottery since he was a child.  For twenty years he worked in another profession, because it was hard to make a living selling pottery then. He estimates he has made at least a million pieces of pottery.

It is a special day when you can watch a master at his work.  Mr. Brown started with a seven pound lump of clay, and in two minutes, created this vase.

It's all in the hands, he tells us.  You have to make a thousand before you feel it.

A thing of beauty,  made from a lump of clay and the hands of a master potter.
