Berkshire-based ceramicist Cáit Gould has been passionate about clay since studying Ceramics at Glasgow School of Art in 2002. Having been selected to participate in BBC2's 'Great Pottery Throw Down' Cáit reached the quarter-finals of series 2.


Motivated by new challenges, and being able to share the pleasure of clay with others: Cáit is as thrilled to take on new commissions*, as she is to teach you how to create your own work on a potters' wheel, or through ‘hand-building’.

Cáit’s work and teaching seeks to convey a joy in the material of clay with an injection of fun. Recent projects have included a shortlisting for The Penn Club Centenary Art prize in Bloomsbury, London, and a personalised series of tiles for a time capsule in ‘The Can of Ham’ in The City, London.
