One Good Turn (1930) shows a young Michael Cardew at Winchcombe.

I wasn't aware of the film's existence so many thanks. I'll see what else I can find later.

That is interesting... the description only mentions 'a man'. I did not realise the slip was so thick, I thought it was applied with a brush.

I recognised the pottery before Cardew, as Winchcombe doesn't appear to have changed a great deal in the eighty odd years since the film was shot.

Do they still use the kiln? is it wood fired? Must be large to take several months work as it says in the film?

Fascinating! 1930. So clean shaven. Looks like a banker or solicitor. More handsome than de Waal!

The wood-fired bottle kiln in the film was last fired in 1954 (slipware continued to be made using electric kilns until 1964).

The stoneware was made using an oil fired kiln until 1974 when a new wood fired kiln was built, which is still used today.

For traditional pottery like Winchcombe, wood fired is far superior to electric kiln fired, imo. But they have more losses in woodfiring, so not so good for the potter I expect.

I love wood fired pots but they're often quite pricey because of the losses
