“I’ll be on Episode 2 (eek!) airing the 28th of November, not long at all really is it?! Will definitely be watching from behind a cushion or probably a pillow fort.
“It’s definitely been such a vulnerable experience putting myself out there but I’ve had incredible support and guidance from my mentor Florian Gadsby (I know, right?!), Dominic Chinea and my fellow potter, Emily Rose Sinclair and filming space buddy @studio.ers.
“This season is filled with some super talented artists and genuinely wonderful people, definitely very grateful to have been involved in such a whirlwind, surreal but immense and memorable opportunity.”
