The tip jar! 

If you like what I do and want me to keep doing it, but aren't in a spot to buy any pots right now or you just plain old don't want to spend more, that is a-ok and I appreciate your support nonetheless. By the end of this year, you will have bought me a nice sandwich, and I promise you that I will enjoy that sandwich very much.

About Chelonia Ceramics

Hi there! I’m excited that you’re interested in my Patreon page. This is a new platform for me, and I’m learning everything I can to get into the swing of things. As I learn more about Patreon, I’ll be able to fine tune what I can offer you. 

I'm jumping into Patreon for many reasons. Here are a few:

- I want to connect more closely with people who truly care about me and my work. I hope that I will create a real community that will last over time. My work is not separate from who I am, and I really would love to build a better support network for myself and all artists.

- I want to create content that is gorgeous, fun, useful, and meaningful for the people who are interested; but this takes time, technical abilities, and so much energy. I can't rationalize spending hours upon hours doing work that I am not paid to do, or creating free instructional videos for skills that I have paid for in blood, sweat, and tears. But if I can receive payment for this work, then I can make more of it, make it better, and rest easy knowing that I am not sacrificing my sanity and precious time for ephemeral entertainment and data collection.

- Creatives and artists consistently undervalue their work. We are necessary for the well being and self-awareness of human society. I believe that if I value my ideas and my work, it will give other creatives courage to do the same, and we can keep lifting others by doing our best and most important work. 

- I know that many of you love me and my work, but maybe do not need more objects in your space, or simply cannot afford to buy my work. Patreon gives you more accessible ways to support me.

Whichever tier you choose, I'm so glad that you happened along. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
