I've been given the honor of a two year residency at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center in Atlanta, GA. This is a fantastic opportunity for me to increase my knowledge of working with clay, glaze chemistry, and firing various kilns. It will also give me time and space to work on special projects and experiment with new forming and decorating techniques.
I'm really excited to get started on these projects. Callanwolde has been very generous in giving me a work space with lots of shelves and a nice big table to work on but I need to supply my own pottery wheel and tools. I have no problem carrying tools back and forth from my current studio to Callanwolde but the potter's wheel is another story. It's heavy and hard to move! For practical reason I need to have a second wheel in my space there. Potter's wheels, even used ones are really expensive so I thought I would offer you all an opportunity to help support this potter while getting a nice thank you gift for yourself.
I'm offering various levels of gratitude as follows:
- Pledge $1 or more and receive my eternal gratitude, every little bit helps.
- Pledge $5 or more and receive a “Support Your Local Potter” bumper sticker (quantities limited)
- Pledge $25 or more and receive a beautiful hand crafted mug, tea bowl or ice cream bowl (your choice).
- Pledge $60 or more and receive a beautiful hand crafted pitcher or oval casserole (your choice).
- Pledge $80 or more and receive a beautiful covered casserole or teapot (your choice).
The campaign will run until the end of September or when I have enough capitol to get a new/used wheel so if you see something you want for yourself or as a gift for someone else please don’t hesitate.
All donations are through Paypal for ease of use and security. You do NOT need a Paypal account, you can use any major credit card or debit card. For local pickup and delivery I will gladly accept cash and their will be no need for shipping charges.
The casserole shown above is for example purposes only, your piece will be handcrafted and unique and it will look different than the one pictured here.
Thank you all for your support.
