We want to create sculpture for everyone, something personal, meaningful, and best of all, beautiful.
We would like to raise enough money to purchase a programmable kiln, bronze PMC (precious metal clay) patinas, and the tools needed to create and fire our new wearable art work.
With the PMC clay and kiln we will be able to expand our creativity to enable more people to enjoy beautiful and wearable art. We want to be able to create unique, or one of a kind jewelry pendants, embellishments for small functional art pieces, or accents for beadwork bags and pouches. With Al's background in sculpting large pieces of art from wood, and then moving to sculpting clay for bronze sculpture, he has the ability to create some wonderful works of art on a smaller scale.
A feather is the message of freedom from a bird. We want to share the message and magic of feathers, especially the magical raven feathers. Raven magic is powerful, and needs to be shared with others.
The pictures below show the pendants that will be offered for rewards. These pictures are of the pendants sculpted in regular sculpting clay, so the color is not at all what they will be. We will be making the pendants from bronze PMC clay and giving them a patina as close as possible to what is on "The Storyteller" sculpture. So we are asking everyone to imagine these pendants, with the color and patina you see on the sculpture.
This is what the pendant for the first reward will look like, the color and patina will be done to match the sculpture.
This is what the pendant for the second reward will look like. Different color of course.
This is the pendant and turquoise for the 4th reward. Same story, it will be a different color.
This will be the fifth reward. Solid walnut hand carved raven feather. Every one will be a little different, and one of a kind.
And of course if you want all four of the rewards, then YOU are awesome.
We will ship internationally, please add $10 for shipping.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The biggest challenge I see for our project is how quickly we will be able to fire the pendants. The kiln will only hold a certain amount of product, and if we sell tons of pendants, (fingers crossed) it will take a lot of time. We are prepared to run the kiln all day every day to overcome this challenge, if needed.
