This piece was an exercise of sacrifice of one art for another. It also was a way for me to let go of a material I was close to. Subtext defines this film but it started with a simple idea of capturing the process. As a film student, a nature of story has been bred into me. The story is arced, from birth to ageing to death. The beginning was filmed in black and white to show off the clay. This main object of attention is a light gray shade. It does not contain color so there was no need to shoot it in the color style. But as the pot matured and grew, its sentimental value increased, therefor an evolution to color was added. The end happens quick and somewhat unexpected as in life.
