Clay icon Linda Arbuckle is widely known for her signature majolica-glazed earthenware, which marries function with beauty in the form of expressive, richly detailed surfaces. In this loving portrait of the artist, we gain an understanding of the generous spirit and warm intelligence so evident in her work. The film takes us inside Arbuckle’s home, studio, and classroom to offer an intimate glimpse into her life, and into the personal relationships and everyday beauty that inspire her.
