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
