If you, like me, watched this video clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live! At Home wanting to know more about Seth Rogen’s not-so-recent hobby, you’ll know just how I disappointed I was by how little time (<5 minutes) was spent discussing it.
The phenomenon of celebrities making ceramics is not a new one – among the other celebrities that have been recognized as pottery enthusiasts are James Franco, Brad Pitt, and Leonardo DiCaprio. However, I don’t think it’s been talked about enough.
Or maybe it has, and I missed it, despite being glued to my computer and phone for the past three months.
Either way, I thought it would be a fun idea to do a roundup of Seth Rogen and his pottery for those of us who haven’t been keeping up with the celebrity news. I am also partially motivated by a need for other people to be as jealous as I am that he has not one but three pottery wheels and a kiln at his house! Oh, to be rich.
Here’s an older video of Rogen talking about his hobby:
And here are some photos of his work taken from his Instagram:
Their kiln is named “Brad Pitt.” No big deal.
Even though there’s nothing especially groundbreaking about a celebrity making pottery, seeing Seth Rogen’s work both warms my heart and breaks it. It warms it because it has a sort of humanizing effect for a celebrity to be doing something that even I could do; it breaks it because I now know that he has been able to dedicate time and energy (and money) into his craft and now he is producing far, far better pots than I ever will. Alas.
