Hello and welcome to my Patreon Page.
My name is Spike Deane and I'm a visual artist specialising in cast glass, making art about folklore, fairytales & mythology. 

I'm excited that you are here. Have a look around and if you like my glassy fairy tale art 'follow' me for all my updates and posts.  If you want more*, please check out my rewards for patrons. 
  • *discounts on my artwork
  • *digital downloads
  • *milestone rewards (printable art, stickers, sketches & hand made items)



Why Fairy Tales?
The magic and wonder of fairy tales have captured my imagination from when I was a little girl to the so called grown up that I am today. I have always read a lot of fantasy fiction and fairy tale retellings and it has only been through research for my art projects that I have begun to articulate to myself why I find these types of stories so beguiling. For me one of the core ideas in fairy tales is the idea of transformation, of becoming rather than being. Tales of metamorphoses are hopeful, are creative and have agency. Those are the tales I want to see.



Art & process
My childhood dream was to be an artist but I took the long and winding path through the woods to get there. Now, I predominantly cast glass. I sculpt with clay and wax and make moulds. To complement my glass work I experiment with animation, textiles, paper, printing and other image making techniques to create a richer story. I take commission work, produce small objects for retail and make my own fairy tale focused artwork. For a quick look at how I produce my glass keys watch the video below.



Why Patreon for Fairy Tale Glass?

  • I make art in quite a niche area... fairy tales and glass that is! I'd like to create a community around my art work and get to know the people in it.
  • Casting glass is a slow and expensive process. If you like my work then Patreon is a way that you can support my ongoing arts practice while I work on long term projects. But you get rewards too!
  • My Patron's will get discounts in my Etsy shop, fairy tale & mythology themed wall papers for your desktop and milestone rewards that include digital downloads, stickers, postcards, prints, original sketches and other small objects that are part of my making practice. 



What is Patreon or being a Patron?
Patreon gives you the opportunity to be a 'Patron of the Arts' (wow doesn't that sound fancy). Like a tip jar or a subscription you can reward the creators whose work you like and love. With a monthly donation you can support creatives and in return get cool perks and incentives.
You can stop or start being a Patron at anytime.
For a snap shot look at Patreon watch this video What is Patreon?
or for more detailed questions try the Patreon FAQ

Payments
Your first pledge will be charged to your account on the day that you become a patron. Rewards will be emailed to you within 24 hours of pledging. After that pledges go out on the 1st or 2nd day of the calendar month.
