Isaac Button, potter

A master at work, from a time when pottery was often considered disposable packaging and had to be made quickly. The location is Soil Hill Pottery, between Bradford and Halifax in England. The Kiln, Drying Shed and Chimney are a Grade II listed building, built circa 1900 on the site of an earlier pottery.
