Last week I didn’t really feel that anything deserved to win, let alone two. Liking the tile challenge so far

They were all pretty grim, weren't they?

I think it was a matter of chilling the least worst, as opposed to the best.

Rosalind's was the least worst in terms of the specification for the task - Rosa's* was definitely the best sculpture, but was totally off piste regarding the instructions.

*I think it's Rosa - the Belgian woman.

Just watched it on catch-up.

The right person wentout (and not before time, , ,.)-

I think it was a bit mad having a sculpting challenge anyway. The skills involved are so different from those needed for throwing pots, it's a bit ridiculous to expect people to be able to do both.

Agree Judy - it was a shambles. Even the best was nowhere near the spec - and TBH, I don't know how anyone could achieve the "classical" look in the time available anyway - you couldn't get a smooth enough finish.

I'd like to see "Weepy Keef" (Brilliant name someone on another thread came up with) manage it.

Enjoyed the tile challenge episode more than the sculpture one. Ronaldo's inspiration was particularly interesting, but I didn't like his colour choice; Rosa's turned out better than I expected; Rosalind's charming but like others would have benefited from another hour for decorating - forcing them to rush seemed pointless. The throwing challenge showed how much some of them have improved over the weeks - this show is a great opportunity for all of them.
I wish they would drop the bit at the start where Mel fools about a bit & replace it with Rich spending a couple of minutes explaining one of the techniques or gadgets - like the harp tile cutter this week.

Weepy Keef wears some horrible jackets . . .
