Hi. Thanks for visiting. My name is Dennis Crisp. I'm a ceramist that loves working with terra cotta. And now I plan to make some cool terra cotta lamps for people to have on their porches or picnic tables just in time for summer. But I need your help funding this adventure. I promise great rewards for your assistance!
The Lamp Project - Details
I have five different shapes that I plan to produce; cat, dog, fish, snail and turtle. ( These pictures are of unglazed lamps. I plan on offering a choice of glazed or unglazed. The cup in the first picture is what the lamps will look like when glazed.)
I only use red art terra cotta clay bodies produced by Seattle Pottery Supply ( http://seattlepotterysupply.com/ ). They make a strong and rich colored clay that looks awesome.You can use these lamps anywhere, inside or out. Terra cotta adds beauty to any area it's placed.
I plan to produce enough of these lamps to have for our Kickstarter backers and some to sell at the local craft shows this summer.
The funds raised here on Kickstarter will help to purchase the terra cotta clay and glazes, along with small supplies used in the production process. The funds will also help to do some small repairs on my kiln.
For your support I am offering great terra cotta rewards, (not just lamps)! Check out the full rewards listings with more pictures at my website: http://terracottagardens.weebly.com/rewards-page.html
Any questions you have please contact me through Kickstarter or my website at: http://terracottagardens.weebly.com/contact-us.html
Thanks for looking. Hope I peaked your interested and god bless your day!
Yes. These guys were intended as lamps to use on a patio or your picnic table. We are offering the choice of having your lamp glazed or natural. When we leave them natural we finish them with a DuPont water sealer for added protection outdoors. Dennis
