This video illustrates the pottery industry in Quebec, whose resurgence is linked with the quest for national identity and autonomy. A potter in St-Denis-sur-Richelieu talks about his work as a service to the community. The Richilieu Valley, which is the focus of the resurgence of the craft, was one of the cradles of Patriot uprising and site of the first pottery industry in Québec, an industry which would falter with the mass imports of English pottery.
