Does anybody know where I can get a copy of the subject video (vhs or dvd)?

I saw in Santa Fe at a Jeff Oestriech workshop and would love to have a copy.

Hi Bob,

There is a place in the UK you can buy it as a video, and it's about 50
which is a lot for 20 mins or so of film. But you are right, it's absolutely
fantastic. It would be wonderful if someone could get it onto DVD and sell
it to more potters and a bit cheaper; it is a wonderful source of
inspiration, and a piece of history too; no one really works this way any
more. I shall dig out the address and tel # in a day or so and let you know.
They don't have email, websites etc....

Hello again Bob,

Here's where you can get the Isaac Button video in the UK:

Films for Potters
John Anderson,
East View,
The Green,
Long Melford,
Sudbury,
Suffolk,
CO10 9DU
UK.

Tel: 01787 313280

In my last letter from him on this subject he said the film is usually 100
but that he had a short waiting list of enthusiasts and so could do a run of
copies for 50 each. John Anderson made the film with Robert Fournier in
1963-64. It's black and white, silent, and lasts 41 minutes, VHS video of a
16mm film.

He also loans out the films at 6.50 for 1-4 days, but you'll have to ask
him if that only applies to the UK. He also does other films including Ladi
Kwali, Abuja 1959; Massive Terracotta Horses; Korean Folk Pottery etc. Maybe
someone who knows about these things could chat with him about distributing
DVD versions in the US and so on. These films are pearls and should be seen.

Hope that helps.

50 pounds sterling! For that kinda money, it would have to tell me the
secret of life, whether or not there is a God - that kind of stuff. I'm a
spendthrift and I wouldn't buy it at that price.
