I have just launched a KICKSTARTER! I am seek to establish an independent studio in Queens, New York to produce handmade ceramics for everyday use. Creating a studio in New York will mark an exciting new beginning for my work. As a ceramic artist whose focus is wheel-thrown functional wares, my work is absolutely dependent on the ability to have access to the tools necessary to create the work. A studio space will enable me to produce my own ceramic line of table and homeware as well as continue the wholesale relationships that I have built with such amazing businesses as Cafe Grumpy, Lauren's All Purpose, Lofted Coffee and Merica Lee.
Since moving to Brooklyn three years ago, I have had to pack up and store much of my studio equipment as well as seek alternative options to make my ceramic work. Although working in a community ceramic studio was a wonderful experience, I quickly outgrew what I could produce in the limited shared space. I have reached a critical moment where the next step in the growth of my career as an artist is to have my own studio.
THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN!
Each and every dollar you pledge goes to making this project a reality. For your contribution, I am offering a range of handmade ceramic pledge rewards as well as original illustrations!
Please note: Kickstarter is all-or-nothing so I will only be backed if I am 100% funded by July 1st.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
