As 2017 comes to an end, we'd like to take a minute to thank all of our amazing supporters! Colibri Arts has taken some massive steps forward as a business, and it wouldn't be possible without everyone who supports our art.
To recap, here's a list of the milestones of 2017:
1) Colibri Arts came back to life, following a 2 year hiatus.
2) We launched our very first KickStarter campaign (which was a wild experience). While we didn't reach our funding goal, it was an awesome process, and gave us a renewed enthusiasm for our artwork - and determination to get a laser. ;-)
3) Colibri Arts was invited to join the Splash Gallery of Olympia - a lovely, local art gallery that is collectively owned and operated by a group of Olympia area artists. This has been an incredibly rewarding opportunity, and we're thrilled to be part of this group! (You can always find our etched glassware in the gallery - so be sure to stop by, if you’re in Olympia!
4) WE GOT A LASER! After some hard work, and lots of research, we were able to finance the purchase of a beautiful RayJet 300 laser. It’s capable of etching glass, but will also allow us to work on other materials, such as wood, acrylic, and even metal! This impressive piece of equipment will allow Colibri Arts to process larger orders (weddings, parties, customized wholesale products, you name it), so it’s a huge step forward.
In short, this year has been nothing short of incredible, and we have all of you to thank for our success. So stay tuned for lots of fun new artwork in 2018, and we’ll look forward to sharing the latest ideas. Happy New Year, and sincere thanks.
