Artistry of Antique Pottery & Enamel Restoration

Artistry of Antique Pottery & Enamel Restoration

 A Great Ceramics Restorer Testifies About His Art
In his workshop - located in Mirmande, France - Herve Bogenez restores and repairs fine pieces of antique pottery and enamel.

All over the world traditional skills and trades are disappearing, and with them whole ways of life. With mass markets and global trade there seems little hope for the survival of the skilled craftsman. But the desire to own beautiful things, and the desire to make beautifully crafted pieces don’t disappear.

Richard Goodwin and Anne Blaber have made it their purpose to record on film as many as possible of the traditional trades and crafts that presently risk extinction. It is their aim thereby to stimulate the remaining master craftsmen to set up apprenticeships and courses, while encouraging a new generation to take up these professions.

Our present special report, about the artistry of Herve Bogenez, is comprised of one of Mr. Goodwin and Ms. Blaber’s marvelous films.
