Last week I watched The Captain's Paradise starring Alec Guinness and
they showed a cup that was being used for hot chocolate. Even though it was
cast in a mold, it had a double trimmed foot, like mine, but double.
The form was elegant, like it was made by rayaldridge with the subtle
changes in form. It was used twice though out the movie.

Another movie watched last week was The Ladykillers starring
Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers. Not much on pottery but very funny.

I think if you liked Dial M for Murder, you'd really like
Alfred Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt with Joseph Cotton. There
is the typical 1950s tea set used at the table but not much in the way
of pottery.

I gave away my Reefer Madness movie to my little brother, so I
can't review it again for pottery. My brother has "bad movie" night
where he and friends try to find the worst movies to play, comment on
as they are the Sci-Fi 3000 theater channel and throw stuff at the
screen,(mostly popcorn). I have a copy of VideoHounds Golden Movie
Retriever so when I finish a movie dvd, I highlight it in the book
and usually give the movie away.

Any emblems or designs from movies and youtube videos are freeze framed
and sketched to be incorporated on the side of a pottery vessel later.

See ya,

I have paused movies to look at pottery on shelves and end tables too! I don't recall which ones but my husband gets annoyed when I tell him "quick pause that" and when he realizes it's for a pot instead of me getting me up to pee or fill a glass of wine he will push play again hahahaaha

"To me the greatest thing is to live beauty in our daily life and to crowd every moment with things of beauty.  It is then, and then only that  the art of the people as a whole is endowed with it's richest significance.  For it's products are those made by great a many craftsmen for the mass of the people, and the moment this art declines the life of the nation  is removed far away from beauty.  So long as beauty abides in only in a few articles created by a few geniuses, the kingdom of beauty is nowhere near realization."                                                                                 - Bernard Leach

I'm probably the last person on earth to know this, at least find this
out, but my DVD remote control has a magnified button. It ranges from
1/2 size, 2x, 3x, and 4x the size. So I can freeze the frame, and
bring an image of pottery from the background to the foreground.
Its pretty helpful looking at the credits as well.
See ya,
