The number of emails I’ve been getting lately about Kickstarter campaigns has increased. They’re oftentimes pretty interesting. This morning I got one about a winter coat made out of 50 recycled water bottles. Yesterday, Justin Johnsen of Bronsen, a new Brooklyn-based collaborative design firm that he launched with Pilar Romero Bruno, emailed me about Bronsen’s Kickstarter campaign, Project Safari.
Project Safari a ceramic geo, animal bust forms made in stoneware finished in satin-white or satin-black glazes that are hand-made in Portland, Oregon. The collection includes: Gerard the Giraffe, Grayson the Gorilla, Hamilton the Hippo, Calvin the Crocodile, and Lewis the Lion.
Bronsen is looking to raise $15,000 in order to produce Project Safari. They’ve got under $3K left to raise and 9 days (until Halloween) in which to do it. If produced, each bust will retail for $100. If you donate at least $1 to the campaign, you can buy one for $90. There are discounts and little gifts for larger pledges. I’ve got no special interest here. I just think the geo animal head sculptures are cute.
