I make some things sometimes
Some things are art
Some things are objects
Or ideas
I want very much to make
Many more things
BIG things
And small
Your things
And mine
So here we are on Patreon
Where you can help me
Do more things
Like and unlike
What I've done already
Have a look at the things I've made
Then close your eyes
Once you've read about
The things I want to make
And picture yourself there with me
What do you see?


SOME THINGS I'VE MADE
A monumental public art installation—100Stone Project (a collaboration with hundreds of Alaskans)
A sculpture made of cuddles
A series of jewels and more jewels
A giant raven puppet and its perch, a paired wearable performance piece
A hermit's chamber
A dragon (a collaboration with Margret Hugi-Lewis & Chelle Gonzales)
A creature
A warrior
A book of bold botanicals
A book of tiny critters
A book of winter botanical beauties
A seaside pod city (a collaboration with Aaron Sand)
A-nd other stuff I've lost track of, didn't document, don't love, or can't tell you about because they're super-secret surprise private commissions for people you probably know

THINGS I WANT TO MAKE
I want to make you question your perceptions
I want to get paint in my eyes
I want to move materials through walls and space
I want to taste clay under my nails
I want to braid like water
I want to circle our voices around the globe
I want to turn decay into beautiful jewels
I want to invite other worlds to play in your personal sanctuaries
I want to influence a few moments in time
I want to preserve it all
I want to do it with you

THINGS I'M MAKING NOW
• I am making time and space, taking a leave of absence from teaching so I can invest my time and resources into my art and our community.
• I am building bonds, joining boards, and donating my brain to organizations that make a difference.
• I am making opportunities, establishing the 100Stone Fund in partnership with the Alaska Humanities Forum. This fund is a pay-it-forward granting initiative to support creative advocacy in Alaska, built on sponsorships for the restoration and permanent placement of 100Stone Project statues.
• I am fabricating a guardian beast for a Make-A-Wish Foundation fortress project.
• I am painting a mural series of children's illustrations on community-based themes for the Mountain View Farmer's Market, Mountain View Boys & Girls Club and Anchorage Community Land Trust.
• I am finishing a custom, diamond, sterling silver, caribou bone engagement ring for a dear friend.
• I am working on a jewelry series of natural wonders cast in silver.

WHERE YOU FIT IN
A few of the things on these lists don’t have any costs associated, a few have their own budgets, some need support, and some are not yet imagined, which is where you and Patreon come in. As a patron you are investing in my imagination, my creativity. As a patron, your contribution will determine my productive capacity. The more you participate the more things I can make, and if you're here, still reading, I imagine you're someone who wants to see what those things might be. So have a look at the reward levels I've suggested. See where you fit in. Then jump on this train. And know you can change your mind at any time. You can adjust your contribution, or you can cancel it all together. It's completely up to you.

OK?

A QUICK NOTE ON THIS NEW PATREON THINGY
Your investment, your commitment in my creativity is important. It may also be just the beginning for us. 100Stone took 2.5 years from beginning to end, so please don't be disappointed if you don't see something of that scale in the first year of this experiment. But, I think it's safe to say I'll be able to make some significant things happen, while perhaps preparing for and investing in something larger (fingers crossed).

Patreon is a new platform for me, so as I orient myself here I may make some changes to settings as we go. Once we make it down the this road a stretch I’ll know better what is realistic, why, and how to keep moving efficiently. For now, I’m setting the contributions option to “per month” with a goal that might be off the mark (I’m not sure). It just feels like this is the cleanest, easiest way to go as we start. I'll also want to update your rewards as I gather momentum and inspiration from your support. I hope you enjoy the goodies I have for you as we launch. They're so special.

OK OK?

Are you ready? I'm ready. Come with me. Let’s do this.

Thank you for helping make this happen!! So great. Let me send you a homemade postcard.

Pledge $20 or more per month
WHOA!! Thank you so much.
I want to send you a really special amulet. Silver Hand artist, Ed Mighell made these incredible glazed tile amulets from Cook Inlet clay for 100Stone. They're numbered 1-100, for each of the bodies casted. I want you to have one. And, as a patron you get the all the patron-only stuff described above.

Wow. This is really big. Really big.

I. Don't. Even. Know... I'm blown away.
Can we meet for coffee so I can thank you? Face-to-face would be so great, but skype will do if you're far away. And let me give you a hoodie. And, as a patron you get the all the patron-only stuff described above.

Can I give you a kidney?
Or, can we have dinner? And can I send you a hoodie? And can I make you a jewel? And skype from time to time? And all of the patron-only stuff above.
Pledge $500 or more per month
Let me make you something. A sculpture. A wall or ceiling feature. A gala costume or wedding gown. A set of jewels. A series of paintings. A mural, like a huge macro image of a fireweed blossom on the side of your beautiful house or on a big wall inside, or something geometric, or abstract...but something you love to look at. I can teach a class for you. Or teach YOU how to do something. Share program/project ideas. Give you strategic support on your projects. We can make things together or I can make something just for you and your family. The sky is the limit.

You are the unicorn of patrons. It would be my honor to work with you. 

...and of course you get ALL the stuff above.
