    ----*PERSONAL PUDDLE GLAZE*----

    (25$ additional fee included)

    This reward is slightly more complicated, but I think it's super cool! Basically, you'll have a chemical analysis of a puddle (the mud at the bottom of a puddle) sent to me, and I'll reverse engineer the chemical analysis of that puddle and send you a glaze recipe for it so that you may recreate it chemically using common glaze materials. All I'll need is for you to send me the address or GPS location of the puddle and an image of it or you with it so that it can be appropriately documented.

    Here's how it works: You'll send Acme Labs in Vancouver, Canada a 100g sample of the puddle you would like to have a glaze recipe for. When you back the project I'll send you the form that you'll send them, it will be all filled out minus your personal information (you add that in) and you'll print that form and send it to Acme along with your 100 gram puddle sample and the analysis fee (roughly $25). This will need to happen ASAP after you back the project because it can take as long as 8 weeks to get the analysis to come back. But when it does, the analysis will be sent to you and to me as well and I will formulate you a glaze recipe from it.

    Disclaimer - There's no way know beforehand if your glaze will be food safe or what temperature it will fire to, but I will be able to let you know that information after the reverse engineering. However, I am yet to develop a puddle glaze which is not at least intriguing with great sculptural potential.

    Your glaze and recipe will be pictured and listed as a collaboration between you and I in the Mobile Anagama Photobook, you'll be listed a as a supporter in the book, and you'll be kept up to date on the kiln and its tour as it happens. So cool!!!

    *IPHONE HORN / CUP*

    Born out of the question, "How might I get someone to use a weird cup?" the IPhone Horn / Cup combines non-typical cup form with the one thing everyone trusts and loves, the IPhone! Designed to deliver you delicious beverages and enhanced analog amplification (but not both at the same time, that could indeed ruin your phone) the IPhone Horn / Cup is stylish and dually functional. Made of slip cast porcelain decorated and glazed uniquely with high fire food safe glazes sourced and/or derived from local puddles and fired in an electric kiln to Cone 10 (2350' F), your IPhone Horn / Cup is going to be totally one of a kind and totally awesome!

    You'll be kept up to date on the kiln and its tour as it happens and your name will also be listed as a supporter in the "The Mobile Anagama" Photobook.

    *MOBILE ANAGAMA CUP*

    As a reward for your substantial donation, I'll be sending you a one of a kind wheel thrown and/or hand built handled cup fired in first firing of "The Mobile Anagama"! Glazed with food safe glazes sourced and/or derived from local puddles, and fired to temperatures in excess of Cone 10 (2350' F) your cup will also adorn markings representative of maiden firing left by bits of settled and melted wood ash along with flashes detailing the paths of the flame.

    Although the forms of my cups may appear to some as out of the ordinary, as a potter my primary interest is in the experience of the functional objects I create, and I do expect for my cups perform adequately if you do choose to use them.

    You'll be kept up to date on the kiln and its tour as it happens and your name will also be listed as a supporter in the "The Mobile Anagama" Photobook.

    *PHOTOBOOK*

    Thank you so much! As a symbol of my gratitude you will receive a signed copy of "The Mobile Anagama" Photobook that will document and share the stories, images and information gathered during the journey that was made possible by your generous donation.

    Being that the contents of this book wont exist entirely until the end of the trip, and that it will then need to be properly designed and assembled with writings by myself and others along with well edited images and detailed image descriptions; you will have to wait longer than everyone else for your reward, but I believe you will find that wait worthwhile!

    Of course, you'll also be kept up to date on the kiln and its tour as it happens and your name will also be listed as a supporter in the "The Mobile Anagama" Photobook.
