This week's winner is...

Corea Ceramic Master

There's something absolutely inspiring and beautiful about watching a master work. You see how they have made their skill into an art. However, we often don't see the years of mistakes, failures, and hard questions. Every master started with curiosity--how do I make something beautiful? How do I help someone solve a problem? It starts with a question, and the journey towards mastery begins.

#2 - Imogene + Willie: Startup In a Gas Station
