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:
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!

ABOUT THIS NEW PAN:
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!
