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." The record was 150 pots and Joel threw 159 pots in one hour. NOTE: Joel Cherrico is no longer the official Guinness World Records™ holder for the title, and you can view the current record holder on their official website here. However, this important project is notable in Joel Cherrico's lifelong pottery journey. You can watch Joel break it in this video:
"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..."
