Local Penticton Ceramic Artist Competes on CBC Reality Show Backed by Seth Rogen

A young and talented ceramic artist from Penticton is about to embark on an exciting journey as a contestant on The Great Canadian Pottery Throw Down, a new reality TV show supported by Seth Rogen. Meet Alice Gibson, a 22-year-old artist who is making waves in the ceramics world.

Alice, a born-and-raised Penticton local, began her ceramics career at Selkirk College’s ceramics program in 2023. It was there that one of her instructors mentioned an upcoming casting call for The Great Canadian Pottery Throw Down. With the opportunity to showcase her skills on a national stage, Alice couldn’t pass it up.

The show, which features Seth Rogen as its executive producer and guest star, is hosted by Jennifer Robertson, known for her role in the popular Canadian sitcom “Schitt’s Creek.” Alongside two renowned ceramic experts, Alice will compete against other talented artists from across the country in a series of pottery challenges.

For Alice, this experience is both thrilling and challenging. “It’s such a wild time,” she says. “I never thought I’d have this incredible opportunity to showcase my passion for ceramics on television.”

As she competes on the show, Alice hopes to inspire other young artists to pursue their dreams and break barriers in the art world. Her creativity and dedication to her craft make her a force to be reckoned with.

Tune in to The Great Canadian Pottery Throw Down to support Alice and witness her artistic journey unfold. Stay updated with OkDAILY for the latest news and stories from the Okanagan and Similkameen area.
