Kickstarter crowdfunding project: Richard Baxter

richardbaxterblog1

Richard has alerted me to this innovative method for potters to raise funds for new projects. In a time whenpublic/charitable funding is hard, almost impossible to obtain ‘crowdfunding’ is a possibility to be considered. Richards project was for a new kiln to develop new glazes  and in return those pledging funds would receive some of the first fruits of this new kiln.

Have a look at Richard’s project at:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1473646486/a-new-kiln-for-new-glazes

You can still contribute, if you wish….but it has already been a success.

There are costs, kickstarter have 5% admin, there is a credit card charge of a few per cent etc, but if you are looking for some funding for a new project to develop new work, this seems a good approach – worth investigating further for your own projects! (when this project is complete, Richard has promised me an article on his experience and advice for other makers, which i will publish as a news page here!)

Thank you Richard, for alerting me to this innovative approach!
