Dax Newman gets compared to Patrick Swayze a lot. “Constantly” he revealed in an interview with iDvice. He says in the interview, “I feel like I get the same few jokes! Everybody who makes pots does. I've never actually seen the whole movie! Only that one scene.” Referring to the iconic scene in the 1990 supernatural romance Ghost.
The report by iDvice reveals how Dax first got into the social media game. Newman wasn’t seeking any kind of recognition when he first began using TikTok. He wasn’t really interested in using the platform to become an influencer. He decided to work on his passion and skill, making ceramics from scratch on camera from the safety of the shed in his backyard.
Newman said in the interview “I was never really into Vine or Musical.ly when they came around, but my friend kept showing me all of these viral videos that were super funny. So I downloaded it and started doing a bunch of dance videos – silly stuff like that.” Newman has other passions, apart from his pottery endeavors. He is a fan of the sea and takes advantage of living so close to the ocean, casually spearfishing, free diving and surfing, saying, “I was making surfboards for a little bit in my shed before I started pottery.”
On most days, Newman jumps onto the platform to post a video. Sometimes, it's a lip-sync or dance video that’s trending on the platform, but he mostly specializes in clips of himself sitting behind his pottery wheel, crafting mugs, vases and chip-and-dip plates for an audience of 3 million people. The pottery videos were actually his dad’s idea, as Dax revealed, “He was like, ‘Dax! You don't want to be known for doing these silly dance videos… [because] if you get popular, you're not being popular for a good reason.” Thus, pottery became his focus.
Newman’s net worth is courted to be an estimated $500k. Most of Newman’s earnings come from his social media presence as a content creator, brand collaborations, and merchandise.
