Unless you've been living very much in your own world, whether you're urban or rural, you'll know how on trend pottery has become.

Ian and Sheryl Smail had three kilns on their property in the 70s and 80s and in that time, some of New Zealand's leading ceramists fired their work in them.

The Company of Potters explores the creative and social relations that linked the kilns, the work and the people.

This is a look at a period of ceramics and the importance of a local kiln firer through archival and moving image and ceramics fired in the kilns themselves.
