Christine Cherry Biography – Christine Cherry Wiki
Christine Cherry is a contestant in the series of the popular Channel 4 programme, The Great Pottery Throw Down. The series is filmed in Stoke at the Gladstone Pottery Museum. The former teacher, who is now an art youth worker, said she had to keep her participation secret until the show aired. She told the Lancashire Post:
“I think everyone is going to be amazed that I’ve done this as many know how shy I can be, so to see me on TV is just going to ‘blow their minds’. It’s been hard to keep it secret as friends have been wondering where I was and I had to be evasive and felt like I was lying to them. But I know they’ll understand when word gets out. I can’t wait to see what they say.”
Of her the Great Pottery Throw Down journey she told the Lancashire Post: “It was very liberating. I’m quite a shy person and had to really step out of my comfort zone in front of the cameras. I had to try things that I’ve never tried before not knowing if they would work or not.
“There are so many things that I am going to take away from this experience, the first is increased self confidence and confidence in my pottery ability. I’m also going to take away new friendships and support from the other potters in the show. We made wonderful connections and I know I have made friends for life now…and we can talk pots all day long and not get bored!”
Christine studied a Foundation Art course at the University of Central Lancashire before gaining a BA Hons degree in 3-Dimensional Design at North Staffordshire University and becoming a teacher. She rediscovered her love of pottery in 2016.
In the Autumn of 2016 Christine visited a pottery craft fair and used a potter’s wheel for the first time in more than 30 years and decided to purchase her own wheel and get busy. She now creates two ranges of work, the carved porcelain parianware and thrown stoneware including mugs, bowls and minitatures.
Christine formerly worked from community pottery,Make North Studios on Whalley Street, Preston, where she was an artist in residence and pottery tutor until the pandemic forced its closure. She works from home and is a member of the Northern Potters Association.
