Spinning the Wheel

The Potter
The story begins as we enter a ceramic studio. The atmosphere is somber, enhanced with the use of a monochromatic palette. The potter's wheel spins as we see the hands of the potter sculpting something, which initially, is not visible to the human eye. When the potter's wheel comes to a stop, a clay figure emerges between the artist's hands.
The animation consists of a motion sequence performed by the clay figure, which is a metaphor for the emotions, which the artist experiences during the creation process. As the story unfolds, this sequence is also a visual metaphor for the potter's own healing process.
