Bill Nye (The Science Guy) also mentioned Cherrico Pottery on StarTalk Radio a few weeks back! The StarTalk Radio Podcast rules- it’s one of my favorites to stream while working in the studio. During their, “Maker Edition” of Cosmic Queries, I submitted a question about STEM vs. STEAM. It was chosen and read on the podcast 55 minutes in! I can still remember watching Bill Nye in 7th grade science classes. Hearing him talk about art and pottery was mind blowing!

“You don’t really think about how important art and aesthetics are until you think about an Apple product.”

$25 Cosmic Mugs: Random Clearance Sale

Great photography is tough and takes a long time. We shoot high quality photography for only the best Cosmic Mugs for our store- the jewels, which you can always find here. However, right now we have a surplus of unphotographed, random Cosmic Mugs that are different for these reasons:

  • Some have less vibrant, darker colors.
  • Some have gorgeous colors but strange glaze texture flaws.
  • They vary widely in shapes and sizes from 13-20 ounces.

All are 100% functional and good mugs, but I don’t have the heart to either smash them or charge full price. If you are okay with being surprised by a totally random Cosmic Mug, then this listing is for you:

“This is the aspect of the art that interests me, the audience. Much more so than the fact that people call it art. Call it craft, I don’t care what they call it. You know…somewhere down – long after I’m dead somebody will figure out what it was and how important it was. In the meantime, I get my kicks out of people seeing the work.”

Birthday News: Officially Amazing! Guinness World Records Approved our Epic Pottery Feat!

Guinness World Record: Most pots thrown in one hour by an individual

March 7th, 2016, we made history. Our team documented me throwing 159 pots in one hour, setting a new pottery world record! Check out the Guinness World Records website for our official record.

The record was 150 pots, and I threw 159 pots in one hour. I performed this feat on a traditional Japanese style kick wheel, instead of an electric, motorized wheel like the previous record holders. I added this extra level of difficulty because I am committed to using my art to inspire people globally to attempt and achieve great goals.

“Why climb the highest mountain? … We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills…” – John F. Kennedy, September 12, 1962

Today is also my 28th birthday! YAY!

To celebrate, please enjoy this 60% off coupon TODAY ONLY if you want to give me a birthday gift by buying yourself a pot. 🙂
