Hello Internet! 
My name is Eirik and I'm a figurative sculptor from Norway, currently working in Florence, Italy.
I've been sharing my sculptures on Instagram and Facebook for a few years now and lots of people have been asking me questions about what materials I use, how I make armatures, how I make molds, what tools I use and how I go about creating sculptures in general. Instead of answering with words and pictures alone like I've been doing, I want to show you what I do and how I do it with video.

What am I creating?
I will be filming myself while I sculpt, the entire process, from armature making to sculpting to mold making and casting. I will describe and discuss my thought process, materials, tools, techniques, problems I run into and how I solve those problems, or how I fail to solve those problems. I'll answer commonly asked questions, talk about inspirations, ideas and maybe tell a funny story from the studio. 

The videos will be sped up footage of me sculpting with me narrating. My sculptures can take months to complete so to keep content coming somewhat regularly I will split each project into several parts and release the videos as I'm working on the sculptures. 

Why Patreon?

I love teaching and sharing what I've learned. Not everyone is fortunate enough to attend expensive art schools and classes in foreign lands. The internet solves that issue and Patreon is a great opportunity for me to reach everyone who wants to learn and do my part in keeping what was not long ago a dying tradition alive. 

It is important to me that every step of the process is available to everyone out there and every sculpting tutorial video will be available for free on Youtube, but to make that happen and allow me to reach the quality and quantity I hope to reach, I'll need some support. Your Patronage will go towards: live models for the sculptures, sculpting materials, casting supplies and new video equipment so I can produce quality content.

What do you get for your Patronage?
There are several plegde levels with all kinds of rewards for your Patronage. 

You can receive eternal gratitude and be credited on my Youtube videos. 

You can get a high resolution print of a finished sculpture.

In case you would like personal feedback on your sculpture from me, there is several pledge levels that will give you everything from feedback via email once a month to feedback via video chat once a week. 

And if you are interested in getting your hands on some art, there are some pledge levels for you - some for maquettes and some for a cast part of a sculpture.
 
Release schedule, rewards and future plans!
Sculptures can take a long time to create - some sculptures can take 2-3 months or more to complete. I will split the process for each sculpture into several videos and I will put up at least one video every two weeks. 

Most rewards will be made available soon after completion of each sculpture. Casts for the higher pledge levels will be available some time after a sculpture is completed and the mold is made.

In the future, with enough support, I will be able to afford more models, sculpt two or three sculptures at once, and increase production quality with better camera equipment. I hope that with additional funding from aspiring sculptors out there we can increase the frequency and quality of production.

Thank you!
If you made it this far, thank you! Even if you don't join me on Patreon I hope you will take the time to have a look at my Youtube channel. I hope you enjoy what you'll find there. Thank you for watching and thank you for your support.
