Animator Jim Le Fevre, artists Roops and Al Johnstone of RAMP Ceramics, and documentary filmmaker Mike Paterson created a film featuring a ceramic zoetrope for the Crafts Council.

A zoetrope is a device that creates an illusion of motion with static pictures. The group collaborated to create a clay pot that has prints of static birds and displays an animated show when spun at high speed.

The project showed how the art of pottery can be merged with experimental animation.

Watch the film about the project below.
