Review

Last week’s departing potter reminds us in the re-cap that he was “pleased with what I did". You shouldn’t be, mate, you really shouldn’t.

It’s outdoors week and the contestants must make a water feature. Efforts include one piece incorporating the ashes of a potter’s pet dog. Naturally this prompts floods of tears from the contestant, though not from judge Keith Brymer Jones, who remains, for once, dry-eyed.

There’s a formidable guest judge for the spot test – Paul Cummins, the Tower of London poppy artist – who asks the group to make 12 ceramic roses. He’s refreshingly unsentimental.

Summary

Week four sees the potters challenged to come up with a selection of stunning ceramics for the great outdoors. Their main make is the biggest one so far - throwing and decorating a fully functioning water feature, complete with pump. As always they keep coming back to that throughout the programme. But that's not all. To test their skills, judges Kate Malone and Keith Brymer Jones ask them to build a dozen roses in one hour, while for the throw down, they have just 15 minutes at the wheel to make a large, medium and small flower pot. Sara Cox presents.
