Sue Pryke is the New Judge on The Great Pottery Throwdown

Channel 4 has commissioned a new series of The Great Pottery Throw Down from Love Productions.  Melanie Sykes joins as host, alongside returning judge and master potter Keith Brymer Jones and new judge and award-winning ceramicist Sue Pryke.

The 10 x 60’ series follows 12 passionate, home potters as they strive to create their most intricate and imaginative work, before their pieces are judged by the expert judging duo and a variety of well-known faces and experts from the world of pottery.

Throughout the series, Keith, Sue and guest judges will demonstrate specialist techniques and offer advice, ultimately deciding which potter becomes Potter of the Week - and which potter must be sent home.

Melanie Sykes says: “I am so pleased to have been asked to present The Great Pottery Throw Down. I am a huge fan of art in all its forms and love being around creative people. It’s such a feel good, inspiring show and it is an honour and a thrill to be working on it.”

Sue Pryke adds: "I was thrilled to be asked to be a judge for The Great Pottery Throw Down.  Its such brilliant programme for championing pottery and I’m delighted to be joining the team.  I love ceramics and the show has been really influential in getting people switched on and interested in pottery. It’s an exciting show to watch and I can’t wait to find out who Britain’s best home potter is going to be!”
