Brother Thomas: Gifts from the Fire

100.00

Gifts from the Fire takes us into the peaceful, private world of Benedictine monk, Brother Thomas Bezanson, a ceramic artist who creates some of the world’s most exquisite porcelain pottery. Brother Thomas employs traditional Japanese and Chinese methods, and his delicate artwork requires precision and patience. Each flawless piece must be glazed and fired several times before it is finally unveiled to the public. This remarkable program interweaves the story of Brother Thomas, a quiet, thoughtful man who speaks of his life and his work almost as if they are one and the same, with the technical aspects of the making of a single piece of art. An award-winning exploration of the beauty, history, and complexity of ceramic art, Gifts from the Fire is of special interest to artisans and students of pottery and philosophy, but its appeal is universal.
