Ceramicists set to do battle

Head of Ceramics Zsolt Faludi in training for the pot-throwing competition.

Experts from the School of Visual and Performing Arts have been undergoing a fierce training regimen in preparation for the annual pot throwing competition at this Sunday’s annual UTAS Open Day at Inveresk.

Insiders are expecting a concerted challenge from some members of the public.

Anyone is welcome to join the competition, which will see participants making a clay pot on a potter’s wheel in the fastest time possible.

Reigning champion and Head of Ceramics Zsolt Faludi is widely tipped as the man to beat, though Mr Faludi has decried an official decision which will see him handicapped for this year’s event with one hand tied behind his back.

UTAS Open Day will see the doors at Newnham and Inveresk thrown open to the public, and there’s a huge range of events, entertainment and information to explore on the day.
