“I get emotional because this is a craft I love. It is my life.” These are the words of Keith Brymer Jones, master ceramicist, design expert, author and self-proclaimed emotional judge on The Great Pottery Throw Down. A dyslexic child, Keith found an affinity with clay, ultimately turning his academic struggles into his best-selling and iconic Word Range of ceramics. Now, with over three decades of knowledge and experience under his belt, Keith shares his love of the craft and his thoughts on how the raw form of clay can not only produce something beautiful, but can actually be a channel for our insecurities and vulnerabilities. It’s a fascinating conversation and an insight into one of our nation's most talented designers and kindest TV judges, one who turns formulaic reality competitions on their head and one who always leads the way with empathy, compassion and warmth.
