Are you taking an art class this summer? Or are you too busy enjoying the outdoors for something like that? If you could convince Kelly Magleby to teach lessons you could combine the two. She’s a “primitive potter,” intrigued by the idea of going into the wild with nothing and find what you need to survive, including making pottery. For 10 days, she made her way in the Anasazi (Utah) backcountry with a knife and a buckskin with the goal of creating pottery the way the ancient inhabitants would have made it. Filmmaker Steve Olpin joined her for part of her journey, and he calls his short film a “documentary poem.” This film appeared on VideoWest.
