Overview

Let me introduce myself: I am an aspiring potter living in southwest taiwan working to fuel my future and continue my education in hand-built ceramics. In the past year I have been working hard to gain the supplies needed to launch my own home studio. This is where you come in. I need your funding help for a critical piece of equipment: the kiln. The photos below show a sampling of my recent work. The greenware (unfired clay) items are awaiting time in a kiln that I have occasional access to, hence the need for this Kickstarter project.

I love making functional ware, especially mugs and tumblers. There is no substitute for the feeling of awe when drinking out of a mug that was literally made from the ground up. No two of my handmade pottery pieces are exactly alike, and that’s what makes them beautiful.

By backing this project, you will help me raise funds of $1,850 for a kiln in my own home studio. Even if no funds are raised, I will continue to work toward living out my dream as a potter.
