Want to get involved?

Hello loyal reader(s?)!

The distribution date for Ben's Bells to visit Colorado is almost finalized. It will be in May, when the weather is warming up, the trees are blooming and everyone is spending a lot of time outside. A perfect time for a Ben's Bells distribution!

In the meantime, we will be trying to put together a plan for having open studio time beginning this spring too, where you can come, get involved and help make the Bells. Since we will be starting to make the Bells here in Colorado, we'll all be learning together along with the main organization in Tucson, exactly what we should be doing.

What we need to work on is this:
Access to a kiln and slab roller (and probably someone who knows how to use the kiln)
Clay and painting supplies
A place with space and regular times to gather (hopefully in the same place as the kiln and slab roller)
Donations to help bring the distribution to Denver and get basic supplies - click here to donate. (Make sure to specify if you want the money to help with the Colorado distribution)

So, if you know someone who could help get us access to a kiln, or some supplies - please contact us at

Also, if you have a group that would like to be involved as the project starts up, also send us an email and we will contact you!
