Screening: Out of the Fire
Craft in America Center is pleased to host a screening of the feature-length documentary film Out of the Fire, directed and produced by Courtenay Singer.
This film offers a rare, compelling look into the little-known world of wood firing potters in the foothills of Virginia. Join Kevin Crowe, Krista Loomans and their crew for 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 life to the fullest.
