The Great Pottery Throw Down S03E09

The Great Pottery Throw Down S03E09


it’s the semi-final and we turn the
clock back to the Victorian era when the Potteries in Stowe were booming Queen
Victoria was on the throne and this week she’s not the only one as our Potter’s
tackle their biggest build for the smallest room the toilet but who’s
busting to get through to the final welcome to the great pottery throwdown last time the plotters camped out in the
wild the man had stayed on and it was Claire
that won the Battle of the pits with impressive ginger jars some in the
semi-final but it was a shaky week but Jacob and that’s why I’m not getting so
annoyed with you actually because you already know that but he clung on to his
place in the pottery and it was Roslyn that was sadly sent home this week it’s
the semi-final Luca fix it and the Potters at tackling toilets and the
pressure is on I forgot one piece one piece for the
biggest mate I’m just holding my breath for the biggest decision sadly we’ve got
to say goodbye to only three will survive but home it’s one step closer to the final it’s
scary exciting they’re gonna be looking for
close to flawless really gonna disturb up this week I’m right semi-final and
we’re going to make a charlet it’s going to be a bit mad I think I just have to
do my best give two thousand percent and then hopefully works I’m bringing my
a-game now no more silly role mistakes really want to make the final and then
do well in it as well got down to the last four it’s just really nervous now
yeah I might have to use our toilet morning Potter’s welcome to Victorian
week and the semi-final what stands between you and the vinyl is a massive
challenge because this wait for your main make sue and Keith would like you
to build a fully functioning toilet we don’t want a plain white toilet the
Victorians really loved a decorative toilet it can be any shape it can be any
design but it really must work but it’s really critical you think about your
measurements no one wants a toilet that won’t flush so no sitting down on this
one Potter’s you’ve got four hours to build your toilet pedestal plinth bowl
rim and you bend and your time startsnow Potter’s get coffee in this first stage
of the main make the Potters must hand build all the components of their toilet
and get them ready to begin drying open my hair down toilets trying to suss out
all the pipe work it’s just not a process I’m familiar with at all I’m
really excited about doing this it’s mostly the engineering side of things
and sort of working out not just how are the toilet actually works but how I’m
gonna make it so key semi-finals we’ve got four
Potter’s left and we’ve given them a massive challenge this week well not
only is there a massive challenge we’ve given them the most clay that they’ve
ever used in the pottery this is a real design project they’ve actually got to
think about planning and drawing and get their measurements correct when you look
at your toilet at home it looks like a simple structure but it’s deceptively
complicated and if they haven’t really thought about how that water enters that
RIM that water’s going to go all over you they’ve got to make four component
parts the plinth the bowl the rim and the u-bend and their hand building all
these parts separately they’ve then got to put them all
together so they have to have a really good understanding of the structure and
the engineering and the reason for it in the first place this is really gonna
flush out the number ones from the number two’s isn’t it and no one wants
to be a number two at the end of this main make Keith will sit on the toilet
it’s a quality check the Potters work and they’ll have to be plumbed in and
flushed I think I’m probably a bit free-flowing but not that technical it
can’t be that hard can it I’m starting from the rim and doing the bowl this is
the thing that came to mind to do the former I spent ages on the computer so
working out this system I approached it with technical drawing Suicider things
my inspiration really comes from there’s a well-known Staffordshire pottery that
makes decorative teacups saw making or making a teacup Matt will build his
teacup toilet from using large slabs of clay with a large handle that protrudes
from the front of the bowl so when you sit down it’ll peep out between your
legs all decorated in a vintage Victorian repeat pattern the cups that I
have in mind a very sort of decorative almost item Victorian toilets floral and
with that classic blue and it’s quite painterly you know you’re painting this
yeah what you gonna do about the handle then
where’s that going and it’s gonna go right on the front for whatever you want
for the extra bit of concentration yeah difficult more knees well Matt’s using
21st century software to create the bowl shape of his teacup toilet
Jacob’s putting his semi-final hopes all in one basket so this will be the bowl
and it’s from an old basket and then towels around– not as good as this Matt
I am wrapping the slabs around my former I’ve done to get that between at all
shaking it’s working my inspiration isn’t Chinese heritage to
streak I’m gonna do a toadstool Jacob plans to carve into his bowl to
give texture to his mushroom design and finish with a red seat to create his fly
agaric mushroom toilet inspired by the ones he spotted on a road trip to
Scotland this is a pretty big build I mean this yeah that’s big it is it is
when I’m gonna measured it though rim was the right the right size with the
shrinkage okay so when I take the former wrong I’m gonna try and beat it a bit in
to shape it into a better shape for real men actually in fairy tales fairy sit on
top of toadstool yeah I don’t know if they’re doing a number two though as
Jacob battles with his big mushroom he’s not the only prophet who ever heard the
call of nature inside the toilet it would be a little bit like a punt so
there’d be fish so when you stand there looking down
wiing in the toilet if you’re a boy you sway into the pants
rose’s fish will be hand-painted on the inside of the toilet bowl the outside
will be covered with climbing ivy and flowers made from sprig moles decorated
in vibrant colors to make a low fit for the garden so this is a garden turn it
for the garden and especially my favorite he always need a turlet in one
way or another when we out in a garden and he often trail through the whole
house but his way nice and muddy boots so I thought it’d be nice to do a garden
salad sort of a nice pretty one inspired by the garden how are you gonna get your
measurements accurate I asked my dear lovely hospitals really good with math
about their measurements they live a full swing kids yeah he sent them all to
me and then forgot to write them on my phone so that’s a little bit of an error
I just have to go with it just don’t panic is a big pot it should work well
look good luck thank you as Rosa makes a plan to get her measurements claire has
it all mapped out so this is the rim section and then the ball will attach
round the outside of this it worked on paper so yeah
triple winner of Potter of the week Claire is planning a toilet that’s a nod
to her accolades from her time competing as a bodybuilder this is some of my
trophy collection at home I have so many strong women competitive trophies and so
I guess my design on the cup of a trophy it’s different elements of different
trophies that have sort of collected over the years that just really draw me
I Clare’s toilet bowl will be the cup of her trophy design complete with ornate
handles either side the base of the trophy will have a plinth with a plaque
all finished in a silver grey glaze this is my third place trophy how are you
doing the handles on the side my favorite pulled handles I’m going to do
big pull handles and they’ll say I’m tomorrow so the only decorative finishes
to them there so I’ll have like a beading bead an edge on this okay
senator Unger you’re doing third place but you want to come first
really ideally well good luck thank you having forgot to bring any toilet plans
Rosa has decided mid challenge to figure everything out the thing is it’s not
going as good as I thought it was going I clearly should have done some more
missing I should have drawn this up at home today I think I thought this was
bigger than it was and my toilet seat would be too big foot I have to make it
big so that I can manipulate the clay tomorrow it’s heavy I’ve got to get the
plinth on get the rim extruded if I put it a bit thicker now so I’m going to add
1 and 1/2 on the front and 1 and 1/2 in the back and then maybe metallicy won’t
fall over the turn ok Paul says I know you’re on a roll but you’ve only got one
hour left Oh male it was just 2 hours a minute ago
no I have to think the Potters have to have all their component parts made in
this stage I have some pirates resembling remotely a bit of a toilet
any missing pieces and they risk not being able to build a fully functioning
toilet this is just the start of the u-bend
I’m going for more of a V band and a Hugh bent well Matt gets his hands
around his bend Jacob is less confident about his plumbing I’m trying to do this
really weird pipe fitting which is from the system to the bowl no experience
with plumbing as you could probably imagine be confused still but yeah but
he’s not the only one struggling so that’s the outside of the toilet so if I
put this somewhere along here Rose is trying to solve the riddle of her rim
how is this to work just don’t know what I’m doing that’s doing a thing but
Claire’s methodical approach seems to be paying off it’s a bit real favor we got
there our looks so neat clap pick on my bowl of tears all right butters you’ve
got 30 minutes left oh I’m a little bit stressed now okay
hammer focus I don’t think I quite get power toilet work still I just got that
last little bit of piping to make of the buck-mart you look
as if you’re done my plane is actually coming all the way up to the rim because
I’m doing a teacup I made it just a little bit taller so I can chop back
that they’re really nice straight line tomorrow it’s going to be perfect height
perfect height unless it crumbles I’m going to join my components in the next
stage so I’m going to cover all my edges so I still be able to manipulate at this
age tomorrow I’ve got to do my room and nothing comes
done ok Potter’s this is your ten-minute time call no pressure it’s off I think I
work best on the extreme pressure I think I’ve done as much as I can do
I just gonna pick another thing up come on
of course this happens whenever you’re five minutes left I think I got over
there Campos whatever I forgot whatever i forgot what
are you you forgot if you go down we go down together girl there’s bits quiet
fiddly I was going to make mine fancy but that’s clearly going to come
tomorrow I suppose if Keith’s bun fits on it then you’re on to a winner three two one end of the challenge well
done, your loos are all ready, excellent work I made a toilet in four hours
hopefully all my joining sort of stand up but it looks T cup shape so it
looking T cup shaped is is a good thing I think I got all the components are
doing know if they all fit together I think I should be able to sort of feed
it into shape somehow I don’t really know I’m happy with the making stage
obviously that huge lock in toilet is gonna be refined down and so hopefully a
very nice-looking tensile look around the room how much bigger the boys
toilets are than the girls that’s really bizarre I don’t think my measurements
are wrong Victorian Week continues for the Potters
as we step back in time with a second historic challenge but with a place in
the final at stake this is more than just a history lesson Potter’s your second challenge is a spot
test and it’s been inspired by our neighbors here at middle port please
welcome to the pottery Alison and Chris from Burleigh hello welcome thank you so
would you like to tell our potters what their second challenge is I’d love to
recents 1851 have been decorating using the tissue transfer process we’d like
you to use this process to decorate a Victorian style teapot there are ten
different pieces that you need to cut out the piece for the handle Chris has
caught them very very closely to the print you don’t want lots of white bits
of tissue on that this is how you apply the tissue so sticky side down your
border needs to go on first and you need to fit it very closely to the edge of
the teapot make sure your lines are not ski-lift
when you put your side up you’re putting two cuts across the center of the design
one here and one here you flannel the two sides down first and
then the center piece left once it’s down you can’t lift it back
off again what we do now rob Etan that’s soft soap you have to put some force on
because if you don’t see it so just come off pale we’re gonna wash the tissue
paper away from the pot so as you can see the paper is beginning to come away
on its own I’ve been doing this process for 40 years and how long did it take to
master about five years so you’re gonna be in here for five years
okay Potter’s you’ve got one and a half hours your time startsnow tissue printing and transfer is an
age-old tradition and middle port is the only existing pottery to still continue
decorating using this process to create a perfect pattern and a perfect finish
and only a perfect finish will pass muster with the judges I’ve done loads
of transfer tattoos as a kid never quite worried about the application of of a
Sonic the Hedgehog tattoo it’s very difficult you have to really lean heavy
or the blade doesn’t cut straight and then she leaned really heavy it tear it
tears the paper oh my god can’t believe how much I’m shaking I feel like I’ve
got 10 thumbs there’s just such a flimsy thing oh dear just getting it so it
doesn’t crease how did she do that I think I’m getting on all right come on if the thin flour definitely on this
sheet now it’s got the two stocks that ask for three balls which pigeon is it
there’s like 80 pigeons it’s not paper just come on just stick
your hand in it check I’m just worried I might leave that ten minutes left
oh wow that went quick I was going to finish the other one there infratry
special edition yeah it looks like but only not quite as
good part is you’ve got one minute left I almost did it in ten minutes
sure ah and your teapots need to be at the front up here it’s the best I get it for tissue transfer Victorian teapots
ready for judging but will the Potters efforts stand up to the high standards
of guest judge Alison’s critical eye as she rates them from worst to first so
we’re going to start with fourth position and that is Jacob is a little
message so your border you’ve got a big white gap and a little bit of double
printing I found it difficult I couldn’t stop shaking as all again in a Claire
the handle is very straight you’ve gotten that one kind of bang on your
birds would need to be a little bit higher up so vying for top teapots and
birthplace is between Rosa and mats second place Rosa you’ve done a verse
well you’ve fitted all the borders found the contours of the teapot and that’s
really important we have got quite a lot of colour in the white here though
so that means math you’re in first finishing all of the pieces are on in
the right place yes I feel really good about coming first a lot we’re safer for
tomorrow I would have been a better position if I won this one but
unfortunately I didn’t take my hat off to these people who can do it cause it
is a true craft in the true skill and but I won’t be doing it again that’s for
sure so one judging between me and the final
will I be in it you know it’s all tiny the killing guards and the toilet it’s day two in the pottery overnight
The Potter’s toilet parts have been drying out ready for the assembly stage
but as the clays dried clear cracks have started to appear you can fix it no my
pipes Don the same joking me the Potters now have three hours to build and finish
their toilets it’s so heavy but before they can start construction
what good any cracks will have to be fixed taking up valuable time there’s me
worried a bit too where we have a massive crack got a crack on my rim yes
it’s not too bad I feel like I’m gonna lose a lot of time
like trying to sort of shave it down I’m just going to try to fill it in with
software it should be fixable it’s not over yet we won’t give up as Claire
starts filling her crack Jacob has some magic to work on these mushroom bowls morning Jacob woman see how’s it going
bad bad I don’t know whether I can beat it into the shape of one city so how did
you miscalculate that them the measurements are hard where the right
measurements but it’s just kind of I don’t know I don’t know
is there any cracks anywhere the pipes are cracked so they’re really vital to
your build aren’t there any vices yeah so make sure that the water comes on
yeah so I need to I’m just gonna try and get
the pieces on as soon as possible okay all right well I’ll let you get on
whether to a lot to do I hope that works out for you thank you good look Thanks
I’m gonna try and get that wet again now and then see how I can attach it and
want to come to it I’m going to face our problem this is a sticker found on the skipper I’m just making a handle from the teacup
it’s about a big handle these are flowers for my turlet this is too big so
I’m cutting it dying which will help my cracking situation a Claire and Jacob
cut their toilets down to size roses also having to be considered the
measurements have heard garden water closets I’m not that good Adam estimates
33 it looks like I need to scrape a lot of this is literally putting your head
in a toilet isn’t it when I was investigating what to do I realized in
the hotel they don’t clean all parts of the toilet ok Potter’s you’re halfway
through so don’t waste any time is that one and a half hour lip yeah it hasn’t
collapsed yet even though Matt got ahead and built his Bowlin plinth as one piece
at the making stage I think I need a few people
he’s not home and dry just yet these structures are so big they’re quite
fragile in a way if you just support that bear I’m just holding my breath cuz
that plays still soft yeah it is you just just don’t let it fall off that
board I’ve got it I’ve got it I’ve got it well done well done thanks guys
thanks the semi-finalists now have a huge to-do list it’s not as easy as
planned that’s for sure with time running out the Potters have
to start construction each plumbing component must be
precisely installed for a perfect flush the slightest error and the Potters
won’t have a functioning toilet and for Jacob he still got to fix his pipe
attempting to patch it all you know I would be amazed if this didn’t blow up
in the kiln so ma’am it’s the only one that’s done the whole structure in one
piece but that’s a good thing to do I think don’t you what does it means that
you’re not gonna have one of those stress cracks and joins no that’s why I touch in all the parts to it though I
might actually have a toilet every single join is getting support clay to
have you know SH and fix so what else have you got to build apart even the
cracks I still have to put the hole and put the
new band cup in okay joy and all that but my main problem is I need to take
this support I to get in there I’m King and I’m terrified of it just the cracks
just not good me today this is the decorative bit and a flushing toilet is
not the only judges requirements I was gonna do like grass leaves coming off
they’re looking for a unique design so the Potters can’t cut corners on their
decoration this cool tool that cars away things it’s
really only you’re now down to the last ten minutes are you all right Claire
why the sad face don’t have time to do my hand off all no but you can have a
trophy without handles that’s all right I know you can but it wasn’t what I want
I know I know hopefully if they just pop up really easy come on this is for a
place in the final guy I was gonna do texture but I’ve run out of time I’m
terrified of this process because this is where the cracks or it could slump
and get to where it doesn’t like a teacup yeah I’m happy with myself I was
just hoping that my decoration could be a bit neat okay
hands off the table please come on Rosa well done guys it’s day three in the
pottery and after drying and firing their toilets are ready to come out of
the kiln hopefully I got something to decorate anything could happen in the
firing and the drying process I really do hope they survive if my
toilet hasn’t blown up I’m feeling quite confident about doing a decent job of
the decorations there’s always that worry at the end of every challenge if
it’s my last one but you know I’ve gotten this far and I’m so happy proud
of myself I’m quite nervous about seeing the toilet can wait at the cone and one
particularly big crack and the basin part of the toilet and some I’m not sure
whether that’ll open up or not this is the first time the Potters will find out
whether they have a toilet intact and worth decorating how’s yours can
a lot cracks oh there’s a big one in the base here and the one at the back it was
better than I was expecting I think the worst cracks probably this
one but I think the the glaze will probably throw that in Clare’s crack is
not the only issue with her trophy toilet design I didn’t get the handles
done so instead of my original plan it’s a nice pulled handles I have had to go
tweak it a little bit we do get trophies with fight handles I do actually have
one with light hammer so there’ll be a lot of work to do now in the decorating
stage and Claire’s not the only Potter with a lot to do The Potter’s now have
three and a half hours to decorate their toy loop and bring their designs to life
it’s quite rough and ready to sand it smoothly and then throw so much color on
dad you can’t see my cracks I’ve got one here just in a handle and then this just
one small one but it’s only in the surface there I’m painting inside I love to bloom
how’s it going up there it’s good I’m good yeah can you see I’ve
got my fishes in there Oh fantastic so what about the colors
because at the minute they’re very pale what are you expecting this to do so
this is a chocolate there’s most of the roots and the leaves as well it’s quite
a lot of different greens and then it’s going to be blue inside with the
goldfish so it should look really colourful then shouldn’t it yes it
should look like a painting on a toilet as Rosa ham paints her decoration mats
has come up with a more technical approach to achieve his pattern I made
the same source on the computer put them onto some sponge and then cut the sponge
out I’m just about to apply my first peacock it’s quite daunting on pretty
much blank slate anything I’ll do I’ll fill in the rest with the paintbrush all
right Potter’s you’ve got half an hour left
whoo-hoo every inch of their toilets must be glazed to make sure they are
sanitary and fit for purpose or white on the goes on and I’m gonna pour a white
page over it’s a big lesion there someone but Jacob has just discovered a
further issue a crack in his bottom it’s like pulling away and the biscuit firing
so it opened up a hole so I think what I can do what’s something new then these
broken pottery is I’m going to try to stuff it and then Calise it heavily
graze it yeah because that’s actually the bowl itself important part yeah yeah
well you know this is working well for you oh yes relief thank you but it’s got
to be fit for purpose isn’t I’m sorry
so this is to kind of make it look more marble like more realistic you’ve had to
adapt a little bit on this challenge haven’t you yeah adapted overcome yes
what have you changed apart from the hammer from the handles I was going to
actually do this diamond scratch and and yes surface but instead we’ve got to
paint it on okay so those stands still the same design just slightly
compromised in the way I’m doing it I would like to go back inside and do a
bit more on my fishes but I don’t know have time moms can do with being a
little bit steadier but not too bad steady enough usually under pressure I
have the quite shaky there’s ever a time to view steady hand it’s not okay guys
you’ve got one minute left one minute to the end of the challenge I made a mess
again have a nice you might give a bit of best for colour really help you with
how it’s gone let’s just add another little depth of
color so definitely don’t want it to look too great
50 shades of gray no no we’re not not do 50 shades of gray this is for a place in
the fine I think I’ve tried my best that’s the end of the challenge well
done everybody now all you’ve got to do is get these
toilets down to the kiln I’m over the moon with it is exactly how I imagined
it I was really upset with what happened this big hole in the bottom so ya have
to try and fix that a lot of improvisation and fixing of the toilet
fingers crossed the plumbing will be okay I don’t know if I’ve done enough to
earn my place in the final um I think the main thing is the functionality of
my toilet that could let me down major worry will be the crack in the new band
I would be satisfied with turd plates as long as I’m not last I really want to
make it into the final it’s Judgment Day morning and the
Potters are about to find out whether their toilets have stood up to the
intense glaze by oh it’s not too bad I’ve been dying to do this that’s pretty it’s their home but before the judges
cast their eyes over the lose there is the small matter of plumbing the men I
have never plumbed a liver for it’s on had a look underneath and there was like
a tiny pinprick hole but I put quite a few layers of different stuff on so I
think it might just be at that surface layer at least I’d always look easier
than other people do that is my sew line I’m a bigger hats off it was really
worried about this crack up here and it’s it’s clears dovish so I like it
just top of flashes the Potters won’t find out if their toilets work until
they are flushed for the very first time by the judges look at your lovely loose you’ve done so
well it’s judgment time you said you wanted to make a toilet for the garden
and it looks very tree like all of those vines that are growing out of the ground
aren’t they and just taking over that piece of ceramic I mean you have got
some cracks there there are a few problems in your build but you can see
sort of way you’ve really pressed the clay into shape with your fingers and
with a tool you know it’s got those marks have been handmade so let’s just
lift this this up really nice surprise when you open the lid you’ve done these
fish on the inside and that’s again that attention to detail is really really
nice to see obviously the seat on there is a bit on the large side I’m just
feeling your rim there do you want to try it for comfort yeah it’s the right
height yeah absolutely fine can you imagine being alfresco on that then yeah
I don’t usually go alfresco oh we gave birth blush oh yeah it’s a strong plush
it’s quite vigorous isn’t it you know it’s a robust piece of ceramics for your
garden for your children I think it looks great thank you so much as I walked over I could see the teacup
profile but I probably would have wanted to see the handle on the side you might
change your mind when you get it between your legs
well this is it in terms of decoration I was quite impressed that you’d made a
sponge and sponge your pattern onto the side of the bowl but if you wanted to
get that crisp pattern with your stamps then really it needed to be an under
glaze stamp with a glaze over the top unfortunately the glaze is far too thick
on there and you are running the risk of that whole surface pattern just shifting
down are you gonna take a seat yeah okay it’s the right height if it’s
comfortable do I look all right you know lovely it is quite disturbing
seeing a handle between your legs so it’s the unimportant flush see there’s
plenty of water in that you Bend yeah which is what you’re on brilliant I
think you’ve done really well as I look at it the first thing I notice
is that it doesn’t have the handles that you planned if that was white I think
I’d just be looking at a victorian-style toilet because you’ve really just missed
the mark by not having those handles on there because of the crack on my ball I
had to spend quite a lot of time repairing that crack and I had to
sacrifice the handles unfortunately in terms of a build it looks great and the
loo seat itself appears to fit really really well on there I have to say I
just love that plaque at the front looks great take a seat
really steady you feel safe on this gonna give it a whirl oh so there’s
quite a lot of water coming out there yeah
you’ve got a problem under there yeah I thought that might rear its ugly head
yeah that’s a real shame which happens in ceramics I’ve walked over here and I’m walking
over to a mushroom I think what helps is that big pop of red isn’t it on the seat
yeah you’ve got the scale right between the bowl and actually the plinth and I’m
loving the relief work those slats or gills as you call them I mean those
mushrooms they’ve kind of Sparkle you’ve got a really nice form to them you know
if a credible little woodland scene going on there
Sookie food you’d like to try it for size okay yeah it’s level and it’s
stable yeah I’ll just it’s fine absolutely really come let’s have a look
inside all that cracks massive isn’t it it is all right so we go for the
all-important blush right we’re ready we’re gonna see if that’s gonna leak all
right yeah it’s now rocking Wow that’s really good
there’s no leak and the u-bend is still full of water so if there was a leak in
that you bend that would have disappeared Jacob I was surprised
actually flushed and so that worked interesting to see what happens in that
judgment room now I just got a feeling that I’m going through to the final
I could be proof wrong but that’s sort of just the feeling in my head at the
moment there was lots of faults in that build and clearly it spilled all over
the floor with mine so it might only go one direction but well we’ll hope for
the best what’s meant to be is meant to be I’m
learning so much and it’d be ashamed to go home yet it’s difficult one of us
have to go I do not envy you this decision because it’s huge now this is
for the guys to go through to the final well it’s really tough isn’t it because
they’ve all improved their skills enormous Lee you know they’ve come such
a long way so let’s talk about Matt I think his was the biggest lieu of them
all it was massive right from the beginning it was planned meticulously
but what let it down for me was he’s put the handle at the front you know you
approach the toilet face on and then you you turn round and there was this bloody
great big handle in the way but it was a functioning toilet and let’s face it he
did really really well in that second spot test that burly were challenged
Claire didn’t have so much luck did she we know Claire’s brilliant at building
and she’s a great great Potter and she really has an affinity with the clay but
for me there was no handles and she sacrificed the handles to make sure that
the build was absolutely perfect and then she failed at that as well with her
leak it’s a real shame isn’t it because she is a real planner she intended to
incise that pattern that so the diamond pattern going all the way around the
bowl but she didn’t have time for that so she’s painted it on but because she
didn’t plan it her line thickness is exactly the same all the way round
there’s no quality to that line it looks dogged on okay let’s talk about Rosa
what I really liked about Rosa was in agency all
the plants growing up it you know lots of data and I love those really heavy
spring decorations on that she had a few cracks as well but fortunately for her
the flush was it was a bit uneven but it did really work I think she was more
surprised than we were actually we thought we were all gonna get wet yeah
it does look like a toilet that you’d solve see in the garden so what about
Jacob I think Jacob’s done really well he’s
got a really lovely shape to that toilet I mean it does look like the underside
of a mushroom in a really strong structure he pulled it back really
didn’t he you can only respect and admire what
they’ve done and what they’ve achieved and it’s that respect for their it’s
that respect and for their hard work that we have to really take this
decision very very seriously because it is the final of the throwdown it’s gonna
be really tough to say goodbye to anybody pathes the judges have made their
decisions so for the good news the Potter of the
week and going through to the final is Jacob Jacob now I’ve got the horrible
job of saying who’s going to be leaving us and that person has had the most
incredible run but sadly we’ve got to say goodbye to Claire so sorry oh no
yeah you are brilliant absolutely fantastic and I applaud you I never
expected to make it this far I’m gonna take away so much from this experience
I’m gonna stick out the poor tree try and make a proper career right over and
yeah just keep going it’s hard to see Klecko because she’s just been
absolutely flawless through the entire competition we had so much fun time
together and I just wasn’t really ready for her to go no safe good luck rather
than four years off it’s been amazing I really really enjoyed it and I wouldn’t
change it for the world so sadly Claire is the ninth Potter to
leave the pottery as Jacob’s mushroom toilet wins him his third piece in the
throwdown gallery and a place in that all-important final
I’m really speechless I’m over the moon absolutely openly absolutely astounded
and yeah blown away that I’m in the final but I’m going to stand up for the
ladies and try to win this challenge and show those boys that I can do it three
very differently disciplined spotters left in the final which should be quite
interesting but like I made it through to the final can’t wait to get to the
finals now I will show what I’ve got I think it’s gonna be amazing
I can’t wait I can’t wait next time it’s the final no pressure max
only the final yeah no thanks for reminding as Jacobs Rosa
click-click click-click and man don’t tell kid battle it out to be named the
winner of the great pottery throwdown the winner is
