Svend Bayer : building a kiln for teaching: Crowdfunding
Svend Bayer wants to build a climbing kiln (Anagama) on land set aside for this purpose at Kigbeare Manor Farm in Devon, (see image above) so that he can teach a group of potters all the kiln-building and wood-firing skills he has learned over the years and they in turn will be tasked with teaching future generations.
The kiln will also be used for shared co-operative firings by like minded potters.
The Arts Council has agreed to fund most of the build cost, but the deal is that we have to raise ¬£10,000 to match its contribution.
A Crowdfunding scheme launches on¬†Wednesday 17th August at 8am¬†and your help would be much appreciated.¬† Check out the rewards offered in return for your financial contribution.
