Glassworks

Synopsis
Shot at a factory specialising in hand-made glass. Parallels the activity of the factory floor with the slow, once closely guarded process of refractory pot-making in the pot loft. Against the general factory activity are seen pot making from start to finish, the pot change and the technique of hand-drawn glass tube making.
