Crystal Bacon is my sculptural tribute to the most delicious of all meats, bacon.  With the help of my wife and daughter, it grew into jewelry and Christmas ornaments.  While not true crystal, it is made out of a high quality acrylic plastic that is both durable and beautiful.  A true ode to bacon!

While I possess the technical and creative ability to make Crystal Bacon, the material it is sculpted from, raw acrylic, is expensive. Brittney and I personally create every piece of Crystal Bacon.  This is not mass produced somewhere overseas.  It's produced from start to finish right here in Chicago, Illinois, USA.   With the support of the Kickstarter community, I will purchase a base inventory of acrylic.  The perfect medium for more Crystal Bacon ideas...

Thanks for taking the time to check out what the heck Crystal Bacon is!
