The only thing my award does not cover is my travel expenses, materials costs and firing fees. I also expect I will want to ship home some of the work I make while I am there. In order to get the funds together I am starting a Kickstarter fundraising campaign. Kickstarter is the most amazing program to raise funds for all manner of creative projects for artists, designers, dancers, musicians, and more. The way kickstarter works is that participants offer rewards in exchange for the funds being donated. These could be copies of work, limited editions, fun experiences, etc. Tonight, a couple of minutes ago actually, I submitted my initial proposal for my project. As soon as it is approved I will launch it and let everyone know. I've got some wonderful rewards that I am thinking about offering so keep on the look out and start thinking about whether you and your friends would be interested in supporting my project. Have a great weekend and stay warm and dry where here in Northern California we are finally getting rain but we are getting it all at once!
The road leading up to the main campus.
Yes, it really is this gorgeous here! This is a view of the clay studio and kiln yard (middle buildings) and printmaking( in the back on the left.) The great thing about being here is the inspiration from the surrounding landscape and the other studios where we are encouraged to do some cross disciplinary investigations and collaborate with other artists. There are studios for glass, blacksmithing, metals and jewelry, textiles, clay, sculpture, woodworking, letterpress, and photography. Let's see, did I forget anything? It is just amazing and like no where else on earth!
Hope you can help out:)
