Receive custom artwork, directly from the East Creek Anagama kiln, and help us achieve our cabin funding goal of $3,000!
UPDATE: THE KICKSTARTER IS FUNDED! Which means we're guaranteed a great start with $500 and everyone who pledges gets pots- but we still have a $3,000 goal to hit in order to complete the cabin build, so don't hesitate to reserve your pot now based on our all-or-nothing Kickstarter goal. Thanks for your support!
The East Creek Anagama has been operating for over 30 years and serves over 100 students/year in learning the ancient process of wood firing ceramics. The kiln is 40 feet long, and fires to 2,650F using some 30,000 lbs of wood as fuel. The student community is supplemented by a professional artist and educator crew, and all rewards will be made by that group, and of the highest quality. If you're not satisfied, we'll exchange your piece for another.
Our goal is to raise enough money to build a small A-frame bunk cabin this summer that will better serve students when they come to fire the kiln in the fall. The cabin costs about $3000 to build- we have a $500 goal for this project because we will do supplementary fundraising to cover the difference.
Risks and challenges
This is a relatively low risk Kickstarter, as we will be firing the kiln regardless of the success of the campaign. We consistently produce good results, but there is a risk of catastrophic collapse inside the kiln, which would delay (but not eliminate) the rewards.
