Inspiration for Cherrico Pottery comes from many sources. Whether it be podcasts, books, or TED Talks, our team is always learning and looking for ways Cherrico Pottery can grow. Many of the books we read don’t just apply to our business, but to life, too. They provide a source of inspiration and motivation for the everyday.
Alongside some of our best pots, this month’s giveaway includes two books that have guided how we approach our art, our business, and our life.
Amanda Palmer, author of “The Art of Asking”, has a unique story in the world of asking, giving, art, and love. Her 2013 TED Talk also titled, “The Art of Asking” has been viewed over 10 million times around the world. Check it out here:
“Asking for help with shame says: You have the power over me. Asking with condescension says: I have the power over you. But asking for help with gratitude says: We have the power to help each other.” -Amanda Palmer, The Art of Asking, p. 48
