For years, we have given away beautiful pots in our monthly giveaways. This month, we took it a step further and decided to choose pieces that rarely are for sale, or have never been available for purchase.
One of three winners will receive a one of a kind “Experimental Mug” paired with the book “Originals” by Adam Grant. Joel’s Experimental Pottery are all unique and unpredictable pieces. From his splatter designs that seem to hide fun and interesting visuals, to his pieces that blend shades of Iron and cobalt for an interesting contrast.
A gorgeous “Cobalt Soup Mug” is another piece included in our giveaway. This larger sized mug is paired with a very educational book written by Ben Carter. Ben Carter is a studio potter, educator, and the author of “Mastering The Potter’s Wheel” . Ben also hosts a podcast that features weekly interviews with other ceramic artists from around the globe. Cherrico Pottery supports the Tales of a Red Clay Ramblers Patreon and hopes to see this insightful podcast continue to flourish.
The third and final winner will receive a custom made “Lunar Cup” paired with a copy of “Cosmic Queries” by Neil deGrasse Tyson. The book ,Cosmic Queries, was sent to Joel personally from the author himself. Inside you will find, scribbled within the first few pages, Neil’s autograph in vibrant purple ink.
If you have been following Cherrico Pottery for a while, you may have seen Joel’s blog post he wrote for StarTalk, or the short interview clips from StarTalk Radio we like to share with our fans. Truth is, Cherrico Pottery has supported StarTalk Radio’s Patreon for years. By continuing to support, Joel is able to draw more inspiration from the cosmos, and then filter it into art.
This custom made “Lunar Cup” was designed for Star Talk Radio. Unlike the other two pieces in this giveaway, this cup is limited edition, and no cups like it are available for purchase. This fun piece has the classic shape and texture of Joel’s other Lunar Cups, but has “Keep Looking Up” scribed on with black glaze. If you listen to StarTalk, you’ll know that this uplifting reminder is how Neil deGrasse Tyson ends every episode.
The team here at Cherrico Pottery hopes you all have an amazing summer and that you’ll enjoy this month’s giveaway.
