missholly, there are many other social media outlets where you can promote your kickstarter campaign, such as facebook, twitter, your own website and email lists. But this forum does not allow solicitations like that. Good luck, I hope you meet your goal.

If you have actual questions I can probably answer a few ... but at any rate, good luck with the kickstarter.  You'll need it.

 

About every month there are about 8 or 9 of those types of campaigns starting and maybe 10% of them get funded because 'oh, throw it up there and it gets funded right?' ... wrong.  Involve your community around you. they will be the primary ones to buy your work, and they will be the ones to fund the work.  Otherwise I hope your project is under $5k and you make phenominal work ... cause it's an uphill battle to not only fund your kiln but to make the work you are offering in exchange for the funds.

Have you thought about repairing the kiln, my new kiln is 20 years old and my oldest one is 40.   They don't have the digital controlls but I control the firing with a portable  dual digital pyrometer set up.  I have three kilns and it seemed to be more economic to fix and maintain them than replace them.   Denice
