Several years before his death the renowned British potter Bernard Leach gave several rare films on Japan to Canadian film maker Marty Gross.

Produced by a pre-war cultural organization in Japan, the film is a work of rare clarity and beauty which follows an entire pottery making cycle as performed in that village for centuries. Mashiko ceramic manufacture is said to date back to 1853, when a potter from a neighbouring village came as an adopted son to a Mashiko farming family. The village later became one of the most prolific producers of utilitarian ware for Tokyo; principally jars, mortars, and teapots.
