AJ Simpson, a non-binary potter from Aberdeen, emerged as the victor of The Great Pottery Throw Down’s fifth season. The 21-year-old said the last year has been “life-changing” for them, especially with the win under their belt. “I don’t know what the future holds for me in the pottery world, but I am more motivated than ever to make pottery and enjoy every minute,” AJ told the Press and Journal. “I hope that one day I can make pottery my day job.

I want to introduce more people to this amazing medium and help to teach and facilitate more people making with clay.” AJ, who uses they/them pronouns, recently graduated from Gray’s School of Art.

The final of the Channel 4 show saw the last three contestants asked to make a garden totem sculpture that reflected their life story.
