Many of my dear friends asked me to start a GoFundMe page so you can help me keep creating - so here it is, the Gofundme page for my new kiln*.
For every euro, dollar, pound or crown you donate, I will issue you a gift certificate, valid for a HIGHER sum. So for example, a 100 Euro donation brings a 150 Euro certificate (when you spend a little more). The gift certificates can be used whenever you order a unique bespoke item from me, and you can keep the gift certificate for yourself or give it away to someone else. (Some very kind people want their donation to be a gift - they are invited to simply not cash in the certificate).
The 1100 Euros target sum for this campaign covers the cost of a kiln and kiln furniture that is needed for me to actually be able to use the kiln. In the unlikely circumstance that more money is donated, that money will be used for an electrical crucible so I can start melting bronze and do sand casting (and other kinds of casting), something that would be very helpful for some projects.
I can't tell you how important the support of my friends is. It gives me a feeling of security and through that, the courage to dare to push myself in new creative directions.
* As I have orders waiting, I have already ordered the new kiln on my credit card.
Ps. If you somehow stumbled on this GoFundMe link and don't know me and/or my work, please follow this link to my Facebook business page and you will find photos of pretty much everything I've made so far in the photo section. Maybe you will feel like contributing so you can order something at a really good price from me too. :)
