I wish to thank all Donors for your patience as I produce the rewards for your generous donations. The extreme cold weather last three weeks really limited productivity but now it's warming up and here's where we are with the new kiln and new pieces - Thanks, Ki

Your rewards ready for glaze to be applied before second firing, on top of the new kiln.

This update was posted yesterday on the Kickstarter page . . . Thanks, Ki

EPILOGUE: Kickstarter Campaign

Thank you all so very much for your generous support! Goal was reached!
Now I can move forward with the Gallery, and I am working now at this time to produce the products required for the rewards. Of course, the new kiln must be purchased and installed to be able to do glaze fire (I have limited resources at this time). Exciting events will be posted on our Gallery FB page: The Gallery at 122 Main and of course we are also on Twitter: @Gallery122 Without your help none of this would be possible. I Thank You All - Ki

Ki's Kickstarter Campaign Update

Because my kiln is broken I cannot fire these latest creations, but we are almost within $800 to our goal with eleven days to go. We understand it is a difficult time of year to be requesting donations but we offer a like-value reward for your support! Thanks - Ki

A $50 pledge will be rewarded with one of these beautiful vases or a similar work.
A $35 pledge will be rewarded with one of these beautiful pieces or a similar work.

Yin and Yang

In Chinese philosophy, the concept of Yin-Yang " 阴 阳 " is used to describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world; and, how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. 

Many natural dualities such as light and dark, high and low, hot and cold, fire and water, life and death and so on, are thought of as physical manifestations of the Yin-Yang concept - Ki.

Viking Tree Lamp

My husband helped inspired this design; it is based on Yggdrasil, the Tree of Life in Norse Mythology - Ki.
