Hi'ya everybody ~!

Perhaps ye'all might be interested in hearing a little news from the den of FeLion Studios ~ we've been kickin' up some dust on the National level since an appearance  on the Martha Stewart Show. Below, for your fancy, enjoy seeing the project you backed show up in the Huffington Post, local radio here in Madison Wisconsin, and a load of other hipster blog sites. The pile of links here:

 A snippet of our segment with Martha:

Huff Post:



ALSO !!! I have to shout out for a fellow iron artist's project that will warm your heart, my heart, and his heart :  consider watching / passing / backing him up ! He has 12 days to make a miracle happen :

Kelly Ludeking - the fella of mention - is a mentor of mine, and helped in a huge way during the physical casting of the last 28 states of "Made In America". Now he's been 1 of 10 artists chosen internationally from different artistic backgrounds to participate in an iron symposium in Scottland !!! He's so friggin' excited !! But this Iowa boy is needing some serious funding to make it happen . Check out his home-spun project and pass on some love!


Last week, FeLion Studios officially launched a pre-sale offer to the good people in this world who are interested in owning a Wisconsin state shaped skillet for all their merry-making, festivity going, tailgating, back-yard pot luck-having needs. With this PRE SALE, we are also offering a special honorary discount of 20% off to the first 100 orders of this new product !!! The offer only goes for 2 weeks, when it ends on JUNE 1st, so get while it's hot !  Check out the look and specs of this little gem here, enter FNF in the promo code box for the 20% discount !!! :


This is the first of many-to-come commercially produced state shaped skillets offered exclusively from FeLion Studios. The production is AMERICAN MADE at a foundry in Minneapolis, MN, and will soon be available in retail stores after the pre-sale offer ends this June. This pan is DIFFERENT from the art pieces that you may be familiar with :}  The design is changed to make the product much more user-friendly and price-affordable to a broader spectrum of folks. These skillets are Un-Seasoned, or come RAW , which you can then season to your delight any way you please ( vegan or animal fat,.). Shipping will happen by mid-June, and your pan should arrive well before the 4th of July holiday ~ enjoy!

High Fives to everyone !! Hope you're doing swell!

Kind Regards,

Alisa Toninato

      Hi Cathy ~!

      Thanks for your heads up ! - The video segment is a little buried on that page- If you scroll down a bit and find the "watch the video" button, click to that "Stove Top Clam Bake", - and it should show up after the ad.

      It was a surreal little moment. Fact be known, I'm the world's most lousy cook !! But I have to say, it was quite a treat to get my first real lesson in cooking from none other than an in-person demo from Martha Stewart !!

      This particular show- I may add - was her LAST live show- EVER!! That's right -I closed the Martha Stewart Show !! WOWZA ! Hah ! We had a blast too -and got a wonderful chance to talk about the work and the casting process ect ect, - then ended the show with me giving her a New York skillet . All of which is not captured on this snippet of course ! But if they issue us a segment DVD- I'll definitely put the magic up on my Vimeo site for all to see :}

      Let me know if you have any more troubles with the link !! I clicked it and it took me right there ; / Hope it works out !!

      High Fives

      Congratulations on all your success. I'd really like to see the clip of you on Martha's site, but the link doesn't get me to it. Any suggestions?
      Continued success and best regards.
