Virginia Premiere of 'Out of the Fire'
Saturday, October 18, 5:00pm

Film screening and discussion with potter Kevin Crowe and his apprentices

'Out of the Fire' offers a rare, absorbing look into the little-known world of wood-firing potters. Watch Kevin Crowe and his crew of apprentices on a four-day, high-temperature kiln firing, in which nearly 2000 handcrafted pots are at stake. Along with portraying the camaraderie, techniques and inherent drama of the firing, the film explores the drive to create, the importance of community and the roles of risk-taking and authenticity in creating the best possible work – and living the most fulfilling life.
