About

Hey there! I'm Calliope. I'm a 27 year old sculptor and I'm raising funds to become a traveling vendor. It's been my dream for years now and I'm ready to start accomplishing it!

Why do I need your help?

Well, back in May, this year, my vending came to a halt. My fiance, Adam, suddenly and unexpectedly had a stroke. The clot was in his brain stem and it impaired his vision, concentration, speech and mobility. Since then, I've been caring for him. All of my money from art shows goes directly to his medication and rehab so I don't have any to pour into my business.

So with this kickstarter I am planning to buy a van, modify it enough to live in, purchase art supplies and pay for vendor fees and traveling expenses as I tote me, Adam and our dog Crowley across the country on amazing artistic adventure!

I plan to go to every convention, every art show and flea market and hopefully even festivals! And one day of course, have my own brick and mortar. But that's way on down the line. 

I've created a bunch of awesome reward packages from my handmade, creepy cute/zombie/monster/fantasy-unicorn-dragon/weird imagination and I have everything from necklaces, earrings, cups, mugs, spoons, ashtrays, incense burners, magnets and stash boxes. So you have a lot to choose from!

Everything I create is original and hand sculpted from polymer clay. Glazed with a non toxic, water proof and fire proof gloss. If you get it dirty all you have to do is hand wash it.

My creation process doesn't usually involve drawing. Weird, I know. But I'm just plain horrible at drawing! Lol. I usually think of the idea in my head and see how it plays out. Then I bake my clay in my little toaster oven and glaze and I'm done. Depending on the piece it can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 4 hours to a few days from start to finish.

I will be continually updating my website (listed in my About Me section) with tons and tons of variety in the next 60 days of this campaign so you can have plenty to choose from when the deadline ends.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge for me is that I am only one person with only two hands. Although I am pretty quick and extremely diligent. I won't send out a product unless I am 100% happy with it.

Being fully transparent I do want to say that I am a full time caregiver for a disabled person and sometimes that can delay me a bit. But usually it's something that can quickly be resolved.

All of the orders will be created after the campaign is complete so as I have the funds to go out and purchase materials. Although I fully intend to meet every deadline, I will get in contact if there are any delays.
