A short film which I made and presented at the 50th Congress of the International Academy of Ceramics (IAC) in Geneva, Sep. 2022

In Indian ceramics if ever there were a melting pot in the true sense of the word, it would be Golden Bridge Pottery (GBP)

FEATURED EVENT

In 2019, Janet Abrams flew across continents to reach Pondicherry, a former French colonial outpost in south India, and penned an article for Crafts (UK), “Cultural Crossings”.

Its opening lines…. “The enduring success of the Golden Bridge Pottery is remarkable enough, but understanding its influence means disentangling the intertwined cultural threads;

an unlikely confluence of American pioneering spirit, Indian spirituality and Japanese ceramic traditions.”

 

The film traces the global spread of GBP, starting with Ray Meeker & Deborah Smith meeting in Susan Peterson's ceramics dept. of USC in 1969.
