Kiln for Art Career

Hi,

I am a ceramic artist and have worked hard at my trade for a couple of decades, but income for artists is not really a living income so there is never enough for "extras".

I was going to refurbish an old kiln (see photo) I had stored in my garage but found it was simply too far gone and would have required a lot of money to get up and running again. I have been using an undersized kiln for the time being, but it, too, is getting old, and it is not big enough for my purposes.

Last year, I put down a deposit on a new kiln and applied the cost of the replacement elements I had purchased for the old one. I have since paid about half on it and now owe just over $3,150. It will cost me another $300 to have it shipped to me, plus another $100 or so to pay the electrician to wire it in. Last year I also paid out over $1,500 for the required wiring from the outside pole to the garage and a new electrical panel, etc.

These expenses were stressful for me to manage on my income level, so I am appealing to anyone who cares about artists to lend a hand by contributing to the "kiln fund".

Here is my current website if you are curious about my ceramics. www.aradiasgallery.com However, once I get my new kiln, I am planning a major departure in the type of art I create.

Please donate any amount you feel comfortable with. For larger contributions, I am happy to negotiate a custom piece of art.

Thank you for supporting indie artists!




Old kiln which I ended up giving away. Lots of broken bricks and the bottom fell off. It would have needed all new parts.
