"Pottery Throw-Down in the UK"

This article was included in the December issue of the Wellington Potters Association Newsletter.

Gloria Young has just returned from the UK and was surprised to see that the British are tiring of all the endless cooking shows, and so instead of the great Bake-Off, they now have the "great Pottery Throw Down". Could it ever happen here, she wonders?

The Great British Pottery Throw-Down

Sara Cox hosts the latest telly contest to find Britain's top potter. Anyone still pining after the soggy bottoms and cringe-worthy puns of The Great British Bake Off, make a note in your diaries, for tonight sees the launch of its “messier cousin”, The Great Pottery Throw Down. Ten potters from up and down the UK will be making their way to the home of the British pottery industry, Stoke-On-Trent in Staffordshire, to begin their quest to be crowned Top Potter.
