Next Episode of The Great Pottery Throw Down is
Ten home potters from around the country head to Stoke-on-Trent, the home of pottery, in their quest to become Top Potter.
In the throw down, the potters rush to make as many goblets as they can in 15 minutes. Kate Malone chooses the spot test, where the potters must hand coil a jug to look like a piece of fruit. In the main make, the potters must throw two giant vases. For the first time in the competition, they are using one of the most exhilarating techniques in ceramics - pit firing. This ancient method of firing is one of the most unpredictable techniques in ceramics and requires the potters to head to the Staffordshire countryside to camp out overnight. Who will emerge from the camping adventure triumphant?
Home potters compete to become the new champion of British pottery. In the quarter-final, the potters have ten minutes to throw the widest bowl they can while blindfolded
It is semi-final week in Stoke on Trent and just four potters remain, determined to take their place in the final. In a very special throw down, one of the UK's most loved comedians Johnny Vegas replaces Keith Brymer Jones at the wheel. Johnny, a former pupil of Kate Malone, demonstrates how to throw a fully functioning tea pot in just one minute. The potters are given five minutes - to throw five.
In a spot test with a difference, the potters can make anything they like. But whatever they choose, it must be a signature piece to wow the judges.
For their main make, the potters face their biggest and most complicated challenge so far - to hand build and decorate a fully functioning toilet over four gruelling days.
Who will survive and make it to the final? Whose toilet will be exhibited in the Pot of The Week gallery? And who will be flushed out of the pottery?
In the final, the potters make a pair of identical, fully functioning light features out of porcelain.
