Each pot starts as a lump of Stoneware clay on a pottery kick-wheel.
Glazes are sealed by firing mugs to 2400 F. in a kiln, creating hard, colorful surfaces.
My name is Joel Cherrico and I'm a 27-year-old potter and entrepreneur. I make all of my artwork in the small town of St. Joseph, Minnesota. My goal is to help pottery enter the mainstream media by using technology to revolutionize the ways that art impacts society. I believe handmade pottery enriches people’s lives. The word “cosmic” describes outer space, but the “cosmos” describes what is all around us. Cosmic Mugs remind us that the elements from the stars are the exact same elements that make up things in our daily lives. I use raw earth materials to create complex, abstract glazes that reference galaxies and nebulae. I hope to communicate profound ideas about our place in the universe over a simple cup of coffee.
