World Record Planter #157/159 and Certificate of Authenticity

$159.00

You can be part of this historic event by getting your own limited edition world record planter.

On March 7, 2016 we made history. The Cherrico Pottery team documented Joel breaking the Guinness World Records™ title for "Most pots thrown in one hour by an individual." Watch it here:


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

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

Certificate of Authenticity

Each pot comes with one official Guinness World Record certificate and a protective folder. With your purchase, you are directly participating in this record. Your certificate from Guinness World Records lets you be involved as an Official Participant, because you are now part of this remarkable accomplishment by showing your support and buying a limited edition planter.

The pottery type required for the official record was a planter. After setting the new world record, Joel brought all 159 planters back to his studio and finished them with the following pottery processes:

  • Carved a number and his artist signature on the side of each pot. 
  • Pressed his thumb print into the clay, just below the signature.
  • Poked a hole in the bottom of each pot, so they function as planters.
  • Threw a custom water catch tray for each planter.
  • Glazed and fired each planter in either a wood burning or electric kiln.
  • NOTE: The number carved on each pot does not represent the actual order in which the pot came off of the wheel during the record attempt. Multiple people assisted with moving pots off of the pottery wheel and it was not possible to keep pots in order. However, this pot is aesthetically important in the series of 159 world record pots. The carving and painting show the importance of this piece of art historically and aesthetically.

This planter was dipped in glaze and then fired in an electric kiln at Joel's pottery studio in St. Joseph, Minnesota, US. 2400 degree Fahrenheit heat changed the clay to ceramic, creating a hard, durable surface that will never change.

Nuka is a historical Japanese glaze made with local wood ashes, which you can learn about in this blog post. After dipping pots in Nuka as the base glaze, I accented this planter with iron glazes on the rim, creating rustic, drippy effects. The neutral colors of brown and gold drips fit well in almost any home or business setting.
