As a side note when I searched for Ugetsu on this forum my ipad autocorrected it to uterus so I couldn't find this thread for awhile even though I knew it was here.

It might be a bit late to reply to this topic but anyway!

If you like korean dramas, dramas about ancient Asia or korean ceramics... this one is definitely for you!

Search online for "The goddess of fire". 

It is in its original language but english subtitles are included. It is the story of a child who aspire to become the best ceramist in Korea. Because it is a korean drama, friendships, betrayal and intense plot are to be revealed. And of course... Thousands of sublime ceramics. Hard to imagine but almost all characters are potters. Evil potters, potter heroes and potter friends in a beautiful, yet very dangerous adventure to become at any cost the #1 elite ceramist at Bunwon, the Joseon dynasty royal kiln.

Enjoy!

 

Found it on eBay. Since it is a Korean drama I have hopes that my niece will watch it with me! :)

till i touched clay an occasional pot would catch my eyes. nowadays....

 

there are usually some nice pots around interviews. esp. in political campaigns. everytime i watch my favourite news shows i always wish they'd use handmade cups with logos instead of the generic cup. 

 

netflix Grace and Frankie series has some really nice pots and cups. in fact sometimes i'd lose the story line watching what Frankie was drinking out of. in fact tomorrow i am about to copy a cup Frankie was using (handbuilding) because i think our fake shino ^5 would look great on it. 

 

You should send your favorite news anchors a handmade mug with their station logo on it. :) Then you'd get to see them using a handmade mug.

After reading Giselle's post I decided to lookup the Korean movie on Amazon Prime. No luck but I found a Documentary called "Cultural Trilogy - Ceramics" It compares Chinese, Japanese and Korean ceramics. 46m long

i watch the news all the time and my fingers itch to send a cup. except i am not good enough yet. but when i can throw well enough i might just do that.  ;)

how about the recent rash of ads featuring potters?  rash being more than one.  someone who is depressed and sitting at her wheel while her dejected family sits outside the window.   i spotted a different one in a series of shots of people doing various things for a sponsor i forget.  and of course, the silly one where a husband finishes off a tiny space and gives his wife a kickwheel in this "studio" filled with windows and not much else.

 

maybe potters are now considered ordinary enough to be included as normal people. :wacko:

For me a full timer those ads with always female hobbists-either depressed or in need of some drug just goes to show we are still outsiders .

My guess if it was 25 years ago they would be pouring bunny rabbit slip molds and really be in a funk.

The next ads they will have a blue dress on .

The single most ill conceived scene that has caused the most harm is the movie is Ghost.I cannot tell you how many women have mentioned that film to me.I think the drug companies have JUMPed on this bandwagon years later-they always are behind the curve.

Oldlady-you mean a room with all windows and nothing else is not enough ?I like the warnings after the ad like sudden death-dry throat -sweaty hands-jimmy leg-blurriness -dizzyness-upset stomach-maybe keeping away from pottery would be the best help?

Oh yeah!  That.  A film that shall live in infamy..........

 

I remember one evening when I was in Japan and was watching some Japanese TV.  A made for TV drama show came on.  Turns out the protagonist was a potter.  Shortened plot synopsis.......... 

 

She had a gallery show at a prestigious department store (THE major show venue in Japan) and had scored a big order with a major corporation client for providing a large number of expensive functional corporate gifts.  But then... oh my god... she discovered that her clay body was slightly weeping!  THAT was the core plot stress point around which the bulk of the show revolved!!!!  The rest of the show showed her diligent search in the studio, and ion consulting other potters for solving this dilemma in time to hit the order deadline.  Which of course she does in the absolute nick of time.  And all is happy ever after.

 

THIS was enough of a focus to warrant a mainstream TV slot.

 

There was also a weekly TV show in Japan.... "Yakimono Tambo".... "Pottery Pilgrimage".  Each week it documents a different studio ceramic artist .  It shows them working, their studio and home, firing their kilns (often woodfired), using the pieces they make in a food setting or if more sculptural in that kind of setting, talking about philosophy, talking about how they got where they are, and so on. In depth profiles. 

 

I love Japan.

 

best,

 

..................john

 

EDIT:  I just checked ... and you can buy some versions of Yakimono Tambo at the following website.  Note that they are all in Japanese, so unless you speak the language... you'll miss a lot.  But the visuals are typically very good.  I already own a lot of them that I bought when in Japan.  http://japanesepotte...tore/page3.html
