I'm back to give an update. Besides the daily grind I have been working on a modified version of the volcano mug for a TCers' home bar. With their permission I'm going to put up some pics of the process.

I started with a complete new mold for the project. The basic design remained the same but a complete new bottom was done on the model as well as a reshaped cup on the top. An area for lettering was added to the back near the bottom for the bar name.

With a new color for the lava and the addition of yellow for the lettering it was a bit challenging at times. We worked together to achieve their goal of a mug which would fit their bar.

Here are a few of the process pics.

It will be a while before we get back to volcanos again but I know we'll be doing a few more later on.



The lettering on the test bisque piece.



During the glazing.



Close look at lettering.



During the fire.



Helz checking out the inferno.



Almost to temp.



The finished product.















They were shipped and delivered and I'm looking foreward to seeing them in their new home.

That's about it. This tells the story and thanks for checking it out.

Whew, more stuff in the works.
Thanks for all your support,

We here at the Big Woo thank you, poptiki.. for creating such an incredible piece just for us. I know how hard you worked on these and we made so many decisions and changes. The end result, as everyone can see, is nothing short of spectacular!

The colors are beautiful and the lettering.. just perfect! Not a single mug was lost in shipping. They fit the mood and add that certain touch to the Woo.

The skulls and the BigBenz approve, I think.




Dealing with poptiki was such a pleasant experience. He was so thoughtful during the entire process. Always in contact regarding changes/ideas. The man knows what he is doing and does it with style. THANK YOU again, pop! We LOVE them!!

Tonight, we will have a big feast. And then, at the end of the feast, we will climb to the top of the Big Woo, and you will jump in. Okay?

What a cool thread, from a carver to a one-man mug factory in a few pages. That Tiki Bob is superb. You doing any more carving?

Ok, My apologies all...it's my fault that Pop hasn't been out here more. Rita and I just moved back to Colorado, and so I've had him helping us settle into our new place.

One of the thing I asked him to do was make me a Bob for my UTR (Upcoming, Un-named, Un-enchanted Tiki Room).

And interestingly enough, Today he showed me what he did, so here goes...



and one for scale..



I don't know much about the construction...but I do know that there was a lot of pink foam scraps all over the garage.
