Who is Rose Schmits?
Rose is the new pottery technician on The Great Pottery Throw Down.
Her ceramic work is a way for her to “delve into her identity” as a transwoman from Delft, the Netherlands, as stated on her website.
She is an award-winning potter, who has had four shows – including the 2019 BA Degree Show at City and Guilds of London Art School.

Rose was introduced in the first episode of the 2021 series, taking the cheese sets for their first bisque firing, which hardens the clay before decoration.
She said the “petals of Irina’s flowers” worried her, showcasing her skills as a technician by saying it has a chance of breaking.
Sporting a multi-coloured bow tie, Rose also added that the thickness of Suzie’s pieces “really worried” her.
She is back in the 2022 series of the programme.
