About

Hello KickstARTer!

I'm Cristina Valiani! My sister Miriam, my mum Andreina and I are here to  share with you our family passion: Pottery

I turn to the ceramic lathe.
I turn to the ceramic lathe.

Since we were young we have been exciting to create the most varied works, from dishes and bowls to strangest things. Now is the time to experiment with you! During this wonderful initiative "Commissions" we want to create something new, a melting pot of ideas, a melting pottery project. What's better?

Different people from all-over the world get together and collaborate to create one-of-a-kind pieces. We can't wait to see what the Community might generate!

Each creation of this campaign will be a unique piece and only you can have it! In addition, all the creations will be numbered and will end up in a PhotoBook; each backer will have a digital copy of it.

Our Home and The Garage Studio
Our Home and The Garage Studio

What do we propose in this campaign? The element of the human body that identifies creativity, but also our personality is the HEAD. If you feed it well, it can illuminates and cultivates your mind and your ideas. And for feed a head will need to eat... why not in a hat? Each head wants its look,  starting from the face make-up passing through the hair-cut and what is the accessory that most of all marks your style? The HAT

So light your head and eat in a hat!

Take a look at our proposals in two types of pledge:

"My style" pledge: you can choose up to three colors and a decoration  with simple, abstract or geometric pattern.

"Your Style" pledge: you can  personalize more the customization with some details, words,colors,... Let's create together!

THE HATS

BASEBALL-CAP CUP:

Baseball Ca(u)p
Baseball Ca(u)p

 

More customization for having your favorite sport-team's colors, your name or your own logo on it!

BOWLER-HAT BOWL:

A Bowler Bowl!
A Bowler Bowl!

 

Classic or odd? What do you prefer?   Have a good meal! 

TOP-HAT POT:

The Top Pot you can have! :)
The Top Pot you can have! :)

This is a refractory ceramic product so you could use it to cook without risks.

THE HEAD:

Different way to use your Head
Different way to use your Head

It could be a candlestick, might an incense taker, why not a lamp or a vase? Decide and personalize the way to use it you prefer!

Choose your size and your decoration! For the maximum customization get the right pledge and we'll create together the shape!

Let's create together!
Let's create together!

 

We will ask you, in the moment of fill out the surveys at the end of campaign, to specify the shape and the decoration you like most for each item you chose. Clearly you can always contact us for any doubts or request. For those who want more personalization there are the "Your Style" pledges! Special requests obviously require more material and more hours of work, but we would simply be happy  to create completely together with you.  

Take a look and take inspiration!
Take a look and take inspiration!

And then there is the pledge we hold dear the most (the smallest, the little one): The Piccolino. Any backer who wants to support us, even just with a few euros, in addition to our gratitude, will have the opportunity to donate a ceramic object for a good cause; in fact, for every 200 euros collected we will donate a Head Lamp/Vase to an institute. Before the end of the campaign will show and present you the candidates; then we will ask you to express a preference and will be chosen the most voted one. Each item will also be accompanied by a certificate with your name as donor ;) 

if it's not enough GET THE MYSTERIOUS "MySTERY GIFT" :) Directly or adding 15 euros or more  to your pledge...

... WE WILL HAPPY TO DO OUR BEST!

What will we do with your pledges: 

In addition to reimbursing the cost of all raw materials (supplies) and our living expenses (which in addition to our time include, for example, large amounts of coffee: P and various shifts) a part of the collection could be devoted to one of the following initiatives: 

-Cristina's movie. She will thank you with  a “Thanks to all the backers of The Melting Pottery Project” in the credits of the film and also she'll send you a private links to see her first shortmovie "The songbird". 

-Build up a real Pottery studio, ever since the dream of mommy-teacher Andreina 

-Art Therapy held by Miriam at the rehabilitation center  of Agazzi next to our house in Tuscany. 

In case we reach eventual stretch goals, we will ask you to express your preference and then summarize: 

STRETCH GOALS: For every 5k € in addition to the goal, surveys will include a vote to express in relation to the initiative you prefer to be done.

And that’s it! Look at the first Update and, if our backers will require, have a meeting in the first Live Stream. 

Thank you and have a Good Commissions!  

Risks and challenges

The main risk concerns shipment, as fragile items there is a risk of crashing on the way, so included in the shipment costs there are good packaging material and the insurance, if the item get broken before being delivered, we will be able to rebuild it and ship it again. Regarding delivery times, we have calculated them in order to respect them, if there will be unforeseen and subsequent delays we will communicate it in time. Regarding the Stretch Goals, we’ll guarantee you that if we reach it, we’ll do it; but we’ll not guarantee you that the most voted one will be the first wiil do, in order to the feasibility of each one considering multiple factors (such as personal commitments,...), but surely we’ll do our best for realizing the backers’ favorite one.

The challenge is to create a synergy between us and the backers, for supporting our co-operation and for creating something that remains to everyone for so many years and maybe, if the developments will be very good, have the opportunity to make this passion something more than an engaging pastime. We'll ask for the backer's patience and understandings whether their requests will be too much difficult to realize, but we are sure that we can always find a good solution:)
Anyway for those who came to read it up here :P a sincere thank you for the attention and good trip to the world of "Commissions".
