Summary

Shaun Greenhalgh is set the task of making a Renaissance animal plate of the type invented by Bernard Palissy. The 16th-century French potter used live reptiles and other animals on his ceramic ware, but for Shaun, killing grass snakes in Lancashire is not an option. So how can he source some examples for his moulds? Presented by Janina Ramirez.
