Help Create More Cute:

Hi everyone! I need your help to create more cute in 2020! To do this Studio Mimmi needs help funding a new kiln. The current kiln at Studio Mimmi is very large and because clay kitties are small it takes a VERY long time to fill. It can fit over 400 cats which is months of work. This has resulted in shop updates that are not as often as I would like and a long turn around for completed work. 

A smaller kiln will allow for: 

  • Batches of work to be completed more often
  • More shop updates 
  • Creating items with gold luster (oh shiny!)  
  • Allows for more testing and faster exploration of new ideas  
Cat Buddies (aka Double Decker)

Rewards:

Your choice from DOZENS of cats! I’m most excited to be offering you all an opportunity to tell me which kitty you would like made. At Studio Mimmi, I hand-sculpt so many different kitties it can be a long wait for your personal favorite to come back around. Below is the list of cats you can choose from. You can also visit my Instagram @StudioMimmiCeramics for more pictures. Please keep in mind that because each one is handmade they all have slight differences that make each one unique.

About Studio Mimmi Ceramics: 

At Studio Mimmi I have been creating cute full time for almost 2 years. It has been a whirl wind of unexpected challenges, rewards and personal growth. My name is Carrie Kitzke and I am a professional creator of cute. My love of ceramics started as a kid, but the opportunity to explore that passion didn’t arise till my junior year of high school. I was 18 when I received a scholarship for my art. It was the validation I needed to pursue ceramics and it gave me much needed direction. I worked and continued my education. It took me four years to save up enough money for my first kiln which my parents made space for in their basement. I’m still working from my basement studio with my cat Mimmi who has been with me every step of the way.

Whether you have been with me since my first show in 2017 or just found me, thank you for helping me share joy by creating cute.

Risks and challenges

Creating things by hand (especial working with a kiln and high temperatures) there is always a risk of work exploding, cracking, glaze malfunctions and kiln misfirings. Even the most experienced ceramic artists cross their fingers and hope for the best when turning on the kiln. That being said, the biggest risk is work having to be remade. However, the smaller kiln would make that issue much less troublesome. I have planned in extra time, just incase of issues arising.
