Steampunk-ish Pirate Ship for Burning Man 2010

The C.S. Tere is a Steampunk Themed Pirate Ship for the Burning Man Arts Festival. Design work began in 2004 but it wasn't until 2007 that the first bit of material was cut. The Ship is being scratch built from a lot of used material. It is now nearing completion but a few expensive items are keeping us from finishing on time. We are hoping with some help we can purchase those items and make it to Burning Man with a spectacular Pirate Ship.

Part of the project has been keeping a fairly complete Construction Blog, you can read about the work that has been done and keep up with future work here:

The work that has been done so far was funded by selling Tripod Art Sculptures. We have since sold out and unfrtunatly they are too time intensive to make and sell more before our deadline. We do plan to make more after September. One of the Kick Starter rewards will reduce the price to the Pre-Burning Man pricing. You can learn more about Tripods here:

Thank you for your help in making this Ship become a reality.
