The two young designers behind Borough Furnace are trying to raise $25,000 to build their own foundry and production facility, and to produce their first line of cast iron pieces. Here's a little of what they have to say:
We have been developing our line of cast iron products for over a year now. Our designs and our production process are ready to go big time. Well, bigger time. Our goal is to develop a new kind of small-scale American manufacturing, and we’re starting in the kitchen.
This means creating more than simply one product. We plan to build a micro-foundry and prototyping studio that gives us the ability to explore new cast iron products and objects – retooling and making our own production molds for each new piece.
We think this is pretty cool — handmade, stylish cast iron cookware, and a company you can support from the ground up. If you are interested in supporting their project then check it out at Kickstarter:

There are various levels of support requested, from $10 to $1000 and each comes with a little treat once the project is funded — from a secret cornbread recipe to a full set of cast iron cookware.
