The film ‘ Richard Batterham: Master Potter’ was produced by the Joanna Bird Foundation to celebrate Richard Batterham’s 80th birthday, exploring the day-to-day practice of a revered potter.

In this special screening, introduced by Becky Luffman (co-curator, Richard Batterham: Studio Potter) and Joanna Bird, catch a rare glimpse into the life of one of the most unique and independent potters of the 20th Century. Filmed in Richard’s pottery and home in Durweston, hear Richard speak on his personal archive of pots, which can be seen in the V&A display, Richard Batterham: Studio Potter.

Richard Batterham: Studio Potter will be on until 26 September 2022, in the Ceramics Galleries, Room 146.
