This pre-order is a fundraising effort to help install my gas kiln that was recently transported to the studio. After an estimate from the plumber, we are looking at about $9k (cost plus taxes) in gas plumbing installation to make the kiln work. As I have been donating 100% of my pottery sales proceeds, and paying out of pocket for construction materials to build the kiln shed, I need up front help to get this necessary work done to reach our goal of firing the gas kiln before the end of March! This will be the only way to pre-order your mermaid bunny mugs! It will take me about three months to make this batch of 60 mugs, and each one will be slightly different in size, shape, and bunny design. Please help spread the word about this mug event--I will not be making any more mugs for the rest of 2021 so this pre-sale and a small run of mugs for Saltstone Ceramics (for March) will be your only chance for a mermaid rabbit mug this year.
