We got approval today from Kickstarter for fundraising! Hooray! Check it out here -- This is a very cool way for artists to raise money for projects. It allows a "crowd sourced" funding to happen. I am thrilled and excited. It means Mala Meal will be my main focus for the next 30 days. Check out the video. Leanne Shunney helped me with concept, filming and inspiration. 

Next phase, glazing bowls!

Her books, including Art on the Edge and Over and In the Making, highlight art that takes risks and evolves out of deep passion. Her recent series of short texts - Avant-​​Guardians: Textlets in Ecology and Art, are mini-​​textbooks designed to demonstrate how art connects to the planet’s wellbeing. She is the founder of Artnow Publications.

The event will take place on August 25th at 3PM. It will take place outdoors and will include a meal comprised entirely of local food.
