Throw Down a good show?

So in the wake of The Great British Bake Off we now have The Great British Throw Down, where in a similar format clay and kilns take the place of flour and ovens with a master potter and ceramic artist thrown in to judge the outcome of the contestants’ efforts which will have involved a great deal of touch and creativity.

As one guy said, “Working with clay is so sensual!”. Be that as it may, but will Throw Down do for pottery what Bake Off did for home baking?
