About

WELCOME TO MY FIRST KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN!

Who am I?

My name is Flora and I am ceramic artist here in Oakland, California. Some of you may know me from my popular Ghost Babies Series or perhaps from other ceramic sculpture. 

You can see some of my work via

For a few years now, I have been concentrating solely on my contemporary ceramic sculpture. I create one of a kind pieces that walk the fine line between art and collectable. My artwork, although cheeky and playful, tends to have a touch of darkness to it, however, I compensate it with tons of texture and colors. People seem to like the little dose of strangeness that comes with them.

What is this project? 

Following the success of my artwork, I have decided to branch out and create a comercial line of products to go along with my art. I have tested the waters at the different art shows that I participate in, and thus far I have received a very positive feedback. Therefore, I am taking the jump and finally decided to make a Kickstarter campaign to help me make my new products into a reality. 

As a first leg of this project, I will start with some basic items, such as stickers, buttons, pins, postcards, tote bags, and t-shirts. Most of them will start with my Ghost Baby logo and eventually, in time, they will grow and expand in imagery and diversity. 

The main goal right now, would be to produce all these items and showcase them along with my artwork at the upcoming Designer Con 2017 in Pasadena this November. 

Where do the funds go?

In order to get all these products done, I need help in various departments; the skills of an illustrator to transfer some of my 3-D pieces into 2-D renderings, the services of a good printer to make stickers and postcards, a clothing apparel supplier for bags and t-shirts, and the purchase of the various components for packaging, marketing and distribution.

The majority of the money will go towards making and producing these brand new items along with creating the limited edition art pieces. Kickstarter and PayPal will take 10% of the total amount pledge. Shipping does not apply to project goal.

So I need your help to make this project a reality. Please help out and / or share with everyone who would like to back up a great kick ass Kickstarter campaign. Thanks a million guys!

What are the rewards?

Here's the breakdown of the goodies that you will get with this campaign.

 Stretch Goal and Add-Ons

Stretch Goals and add-ons are some of the great things of a KickStarter Campaign.

If the campaign reaches $7000, each person that pledges at the $100 level or above will also receive a great 5x7 photo book featuring some of my creations (see image below). 

Want more goodies? No problem. If you want extra items than the listed pledge levels, just add them directly to your pledge!

Here are the add-ons

 If you are interested on a surprise mystery pinhead or a custom made Ghost Baby, you can also add them on. Once the campaign has ended, I will contact you in order to get details for the customization. The mystery pinhead, as the name indicates, it will be a surprise... how exciting!

Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my first kickstarter campaign. I can't wait to share the results with all of you.

Risks and challenges

I do not see any foreseeable obstacles when it comes to the basic products from the comercial line. If your rewards are comercial products, the items should be sent to you by October 2017. If your rewards are ceramic pieces or a mixture of ceramic pieces and comercial items, they will be sent out to you by December 2017.

The only thing that would make my deadline be a little bit late would be an over-funded project (which is not a bad thing, haha!). Should that happen my timetable may be pushed out a bit further. I would contact you if that is the case and I need some extra time to finish the art pieces.

If any of you needs their piece/s for a specific date (wedding/birthday present, for example) I'd be happy to work with you to make sure they received it in time. Just get in touch with me and I'll make it happen.

I will ship all the rewards via USPS. If you are an international backer and you feel your postal system is unreliable, please contact me and I will ship your items via FEDEX or UPS.

I will do my best to keep you informed on the progress of the project as it unfolds.
Thanks!
