Mary Watts’ Diaries

A film commission by Watts Gallery situated within the new Watts Studios gallery as a permanent exhibit. The film creates a historical account of Mary Watt’s life with the artist George Frederick Watts. A narrated voiceover (edited entirely from Mary’s diaries from 1887-1904) guides us through her emotions, artistic practise and her collaboration as potter within her adjacent community.
