The Great Pottery Throw Down Show Summary
The Great Pottery Throw Down is a British television competition programme first broadcast on BBC Two from 3 November 2015. It is a contest in the style of The Great British Bake Off and The Great British Sewing Bee, but with pottery.
In each episode, a group of amateur potters compete to complete two pottery challenges. In the “main make” challenge, contestants undertake a substantial multi-stage creative task: subject to given specifications, they must design a ceramic creation, build it from raw clay, and decorate it; the finished products are fired in the kiln and presented to the judges for evaluation. In between stages of the main make, potters are given a “second challenge”, a smaller-scale task testing a specific pottery skill, on which they are ranked from worst to best by the judges. At the end of each episode, the judges designate the best-performing contestant as “potter of the week”. The contestant with the worst results is dismissed, and all others return for the following episode; the winner of the final episode is the overall winner of the series.
