The Clay Studio, in Groombridge, Kent hosted a spectacular show of its students’ work last month. Throw Down contestants Clover Lee and Freya Bramble Carter spent the afternoon judging the teapots, which were assessed for creativity, design and functionality, and the assembled visitors also voted for their favourite. After much deliberation – and pouring! – the results were announced as follows:


‘The people’s favourite’ Ingrid Frydenbo-Bruvoll




Design and pouring (functional) Helen Sewell










Wacky and most creative Sue Pound









The Grand Champion Kate Monckton
