The video created by Peter Jones begins with his passion of being a caver and potter at a young age. The video continues with Peter throwing pots on the wheel, explaining the how and why he throws his pots the way he does. Different decorative techniques are explained and exhibited throughout the remainder of the video at different times in the throwing, trimming and decorative stages.
Peter Jones has been a member of the NSS since 1969, NSS # 11412 F. In 2002, he was a co-chairman of the NSS Convention in Camden, Maine. Despite living in Camden, Peter spends most of his time in the caves of the Guadalupe Mountains of New Mexico. His two passions in life are those of being a cave photographer for 50 years and being a potter for 49 years. He has created several fundraising projects as a potter to support cave-related events, two of them at and for Carlsbad Caverns National Park and the “Mug the Mortgage” campaign for the NSS.
