Arts Film – The making of our Sussex Pigs
An online film about our unusual Sussex Wedding gift, the Sussex Pig has been unveiled by Rye Arts Festival. The 12 minute short is a gentle & thoughtfully constructed piece explaining our pigs’ extraordinary story and revealing exactly how these unusual pottery drinking vessels are made.
Our ceramic Sussex Pigs have been hand-made & hand painted using freehand brushwork since the 1800s, with over 12 hand processes used to create them. Created by arts & culture filmmaker Alisdair Kitchen, the film launched this week as part of Rye Arts Festival’s Digital Fringe.
We’re enormously grateful to Al and the Rye Arts Festival team for choosing us. We really enjoyed working with him and can’t believe he’s made such a strong testament to our amazing team and quite how much time and skill is involved in every single piece of pottery we make.
