This year's lineup: 1500 of each: 1) Starfish Blue 2) Starfish Orange 3) Octopus 4) Seahorse
6000 Fine porcelain shapes - 1/8" thin and approx. 3-4" wide
300 sheets Decal Printing - High quality 10 color silk screen printing.
6000 pillow boxes
First, I make a painting.
Then I photograph the painting and remove the background.
These images are silk screened with ceramic inks on large sheets.
Then we have thousands of blank ceramic shapes produced, along with custom size pillow boxes for packaging.
Then we cut out the images from the sheets and apply them on to the ceramic shapes and fire them in the kiln.
.....are on the right. Cick on the one you want or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or need to tweak a little to make your reward JUST RIGHT.

A FAVORITE of our Kickstarter backers... Give us an idea of what you like when we send the survey (dinnerware, turtles, giclees, etc) and we will load you up with lots of goodies that far exceed the $250 mark. I was surprised how many people chose this reward, and they all loved what they got! Free shipping on this, as well.
So, please help get these made with your generous backing. Every ornament helps! ALSO, please spread this Kickstarter project on your social media pages and by emailing this link to all your friends:
Love and Gratitude, XX

Risks and challenges
Delivery of the porcelain blanks from overseas is always a challenge! However we are starting earlier this year, and using the same factory, so I have high hopes everything will run smoothly.
ast year we had to airship the first few hundred in order to meet deadlines, so obviously we are prepared to DO WHAT IT TAKES to get the rewards to you when you want them!
The good thing is, our first Kickstarter project bought the kilns, the printed artwork, and gave us all at the Rody studio LOTS of practice firing practically PERFECT objects of useful art.
Our ordering/shipping/inventory integrated systems allowed us to fulfill 100% of our rewards in a very timely manner. We would be sunk with out it, we know it works, and we use it all the time. So, fulfillment should (still) be a breeze. Learn about accountability on KickstarterLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
