365 Days of Clay Cups…

The Book & The Video Series

On January 1, 2011, Tammy Jo Schoppet set out on a 1 year learning journey to acquire skills throwing on the pottery wheel. With only basic knowledge and no prior classes, she decided to share her wheel throwing growth in daily videos through social media.  The hope was to gain constructive critique and personally accountability as she tracked her progress.

110a 111e 313bThe beautiful adventure that unfolded from this one step of faith brought together a wonderful community of  professional and amateur clay enthusiasts! As potters from around the world began sharing their encouragement and instructions, her skills began to grow. On December 31, 2011 she took out the last cup #365! With each name wrapping around the cup, she dedicated it to those people helping her throughout the year!

2016 celebrates the 5 year anniversary of this once in a lifetime project by collecting her experiences into a printed book!
