Roughly 16-17oz. size mug, Stoneware, handmade by Joel Cherrico on his pottery kickwheel. "Ruby Red" glaze interior. 

3 books:

  1. Put Your Ass Where Your Heart Wants To Be (paperback, new, autographed)
  2. Do The Work (paperback, new, autographed)
  3. Do The Work (hardcover, used, autographed)

Hardcovers are no longer in print. Joel Cherrico found this rare hardcardcover, with a sleeve adorning Man with Hoe by Vincent van Gogh. Joel created a mug inspired by the book. The book is used, and not perfect, but excellent quality.

Collectors Edition Books: Each book has 2 bookplates, made from handmade paper by Sienna Cherrico, were mounted in the inside cover by the Cherrico Pottery Team, using archival glue. One bookplate signifies the book as a Collectors Edition, exclusively available here on It bares an insignia that matches the mug. The second bookplate was sent to Steven Pressfield, autographed, then mounted in your book.

This mug is a collaboration between author Steven Pressfield ( and potter Joel Cherrico ( Joel and Steven share the sales of their collaborative art 50/50. 

Your book has a handmade paper bookplate affixed to the inside front cover, made by artist Sienna Cherrico. You can learn more about the ancient art of papermaking in Sienna's post, The Art of Making Paper.

Every mug is a unique piece of handmade art. No two mugs are identical and styles vary. Mug sizes might vary an additional 1-2 ounces, because every mug is handmade and Joel Cherrico is not a machine.

Additions of clay on the handle help these mugs look and feel handmade, emphasizing how they were formed with Joel Cherrico's hands on a pottery kick-wheel. Finger marks on the bottom of each mug were left intentionally, showing how the pots were dipped in glaze by hand.

All pottery is handmade by Joel Cherrico and the Cherrico Pottery Team. All of our Stoneware and porcelain pottery is 100% food and non-toxic. Mugs are meant to be used and enjoyed daily. Mugs are dishwasher safe, but we recommend hand washing all pottery. Most mugs are microwave safe but some experimental colors might have metal colors that cause the pottery to be non-microwaveable. 

Pottery is inherently brittle compared to other, non-brittle materials like metal. If you hit your mug against a surface or drop it, it can break. Broken pottery cannot be repaired. But with careful use, pottery can remain identical for thousands of years.
