Aloha Folks -

TikiVille - you are now the official wall tester!
Little Lost Tiki and Quid - mahalo! Squid, one of these could be yours if you do the swap! Please please please!

Ok - on to newer things. Went to the Hawaii Potter's Guild last night to pick up a bunch of my stuff from their high-fire kiln. Hot-damn, I am soooo happy with the way the DEMOKU turned out! I love this one so much, I decided to hang on to it a while. I've sold a few pieces in the past to TC folks and missed them greatly once I sent them to their new homes. I need to spend some quality time with this one before it leaves the nest.





Remember, I did two more of these fellows in a red clay body - so I'll eventually part with at least two of the DEMOKU clan!

Mahalo for peeking -
Henrik

Pretty much run out of adjectives for your work Henrik--but still loving it all the same. I really like the way the teeth contrast against the rest of the mug on this one.

Excellent work as always.

Mahalo Liz! I dig the teeth as well. This is the first time I got to use a high fire "true" porcelain (I usually fire at cone 5-6 in my electric studio kiln, and this fellow was fired at around cone 10 in the Potters' Guild gas kiln), and it gives the teeth a lot of depth and luster. Glad you noticed

Henrik

Yep, there's a noticeable difference in the teeth, now you'll have to buy a gas kiln!

Looking bodacious! (Now there's an adjective not frequently used )

Mahalo everyone!

Two bits of news- first, the Tiki Swap mugs (as well as the DEMOKU mugs and 30-ish tiles) survived the bisque firing intact. Whew! Secondly, I've expanded from Facebook to Twitter. Feel free to follow my studio successes and failures at

Mahalo for peeking!
