About this project
We have been developing our line of cast iron products for over a year now. Our designs and our production process are ready to go big time. Well, bigger time. Our goal is to develop a new kind of small-scale American manufacturing, and we’re starting in the kitchen.
This means creating more than simply one product. We plan to build a micro-foundry and prototyping studio that gives us the ability to explore new cast iron products and objects – retooling and making our own production molds for each new piece.
We’ve come to the Kickstarter community to ask for your help in funding our first run of cast iron cookware. To accomplish this, we need machinery, materials, and time. Your support gives us all three, and we’re more than happy to give you a little something in return. Please, check out our donation levels and rewards.
We strive for quality craftsmanship and sustainable practices. Our cookware revisits the classic skillet, updating its function as well as its form. Each skillet is cast from reclaimed iron, hand finished, and seasoned with flax seed oil. The handles on our pieces are larger and thinner than traditional skillets, helping with handling and weight balance. Best of all, the long handle on our frying skillet stays cool on the stovetop (tested to 600° F) – that allows you to manipulate the pan easily and safely.
Through our explorations in cast iron we seek to give contemporary form to a time-tested material and process. We look forward to providing you with quality pieces soon, and for years to come.
Thank you for your support,
Jason Connelly and John Truex
