Muddy Steel is creating combined fabricated fine art

per month
Hello and welcome. We are MuddySteel. MuddySteel is a collaboration of two fabrication artists; Kylene the ceramicist (aka mud) and Wesley the steel sculptor who have come together to create beautiful sculpture. 
Wes and I want to make sculpture full time and fully invest ourselves in MuddySteel. We have a multitude of sculpture ideas without full funding capability. That's where you come in; if you chip in a dollar or a couple bucks a month, we can dedicate ourselves full time to MuddySteel. The reward is, you as the patron, get a look at fun "behind the scenes" of MuddySteel. Have you ever wondered about the work that goes on behind the artwork or sculpture? Many don't realize the ideas, the planning and the dreams that go on behind the scenes in sculpture work: sketches and drafts, maquettes, material manipulation and assembly to name a few.  Patronage from this site will push towards a resurgence of sculpture capability for us. 

Here's what you need to get "briefed" on our Patreon account: patreon.com/muddysteel

We are launching this page with the hopes of continuing our pursuit of fine art.  
Wes and I have often talked of the lack of patronage within creative fields. Patreon Inc. is making patronage of the arts possible for people who want to see more of our art by paying us to create art! Patreon allows individuals to become patrons of the arts without having to make the full investment of purchasing artwork from us.

Common methods of art sale; galleries, co-ops, art centers, festivals etc. don't work for sculptors.  Galleries want bronze, co-ops don't have the room, art centers book shows almost a year out (it's a struggle to create enough sculpture to fill an art gallery to make a "statement" then store it afterwards!) and festivals and outside venues are great but then you are limited to "weather resistant" pieces and wear and tear on our artwork.
Wes and I have spent years trying to perfect and push our mediums and ultimately, life gets in the way. 

Being a MuddySteel patron helps build a community of people supporting what sculpture is:  beautiful monumental works built for the masses to enjoy.

Patronage = more time to create art
More art = more "behind the scenes" from us, as artists, thanks to patron involvement.  

Watch us create! Get the chance to help us grow.
Every dollar counts, and is greatly appreciated.

We will try to be as attentive as we can be to our patrons. We look forward to feedback and critique. Thank you for growing with us and joining the Muddy Steel community. This is a passion. We want nothing more than to have our art self sustain our livelihood and to create for the masses.

Pledges are monthly and have 3 tier options.

Thank You.
