Filmmaker Bob Hanson and interviewer Linda Kramer visit ceramicist Dick Hay prior to the opening of the "Clayworks: 20 Americans" exhibition at the MCC, June 18-September 12, 1971. Kramer and Hay discuss his "trap" series, in which a ceramic trap is positioned to capture a decorative cookie jar, casserole, or other aesthetic trinket. As a commentary on the beauty of handmade goods, Hay suggests that the destruction of machine-made, mass-produced products drastically alters human the perception of beauty. Before the interview ends, Hay briefly discusses his recent "rear view mirror" series. By highlighting the objects that dangle from a driver's rear view mirror, Hay demonstrates the way in which humans display those values which they wish others to perceive in them. In the final 30 seconds of filming, the video abruptly changes to capture a group dance at a social gathering.
