Currently in its seventh season in the UK, this show comes to Canada at the perfect time, as pottery continues to explode in popularity on TikTok and Instagram and diverse makers discover the joy of clay. Ten of Canada's best home potters compete to be crowned best at the wheel!
The Great Canadian Pottery Throw Down is a naturally upbeat, open-hearted competition series that revels in the remarkable creativity of Canada's best home potters. Episodes feature clever challenges, beautiful creations and personal stories between layers of humour and discovery, unearthing what inspires and what flames their passion for clay.
Jennifer Robertson, celebrated for her role as Jocelyn Schitt in CBC's Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning comedy series Schitt's Creek, and currently starring in Ginny & Georgia, will bring the series to life as host. A talented potter in his own right, Seth Rogen, award-winning actor, producer, director, and co-founder of Houseplant, will serve as a guest judge and an executive producer courtesy of Point Grey Pictures. Rounding out the on-screen team are Vancouver-based, award-winning artist and ceramics instructor Brendan Tang and renowned ceramicist and educator Natalie Waddell from Toronto, who will serve as judges and name Canada's top potter.
