In the video above, ceramist Eric Landon decided to switch things up by mounting a camera to the potter's wheel, offering a new look at the claymaking process. With the artist's hands and the surrounding studio eventually disappearing into a blur, the video is a mesmerizing look at how the clay is transformed into an impressive vase in under three minutes. There are a couple moments where the footage appears to not be in real-time because of how the dimensions of the vase change, but it does not take away from the end result. We haven't watched a pottery scene this satisfying since Ghost.
