Aloha folks - remember me?

FInished our big day job project, took a vacation, and now I am (happily) getting my hands covered with clay again. I had such a blast doing the last big wall hanging mug holder, I decided to give it another go. This time I went BIG, Pyramid cult, Ancient Mayan, and a splash of Vegas.







This one is extra crazy - I spent forever creating separate chambers for each eye, the "mug chamber", and the mouth, and added lots of channels for wires. If all goes as planned, I hope to have the eyes and mouth flickering red with LED firelight, and the forehead "mug chamber" a ghostly blue. FIngers crossed! THis will now spend a few weeks on the drying table. The clay is a prepared cone 6 paper clay form Laguna (can't remember the # at the moment). A solid 20" tall - but keep in mind, it will shrink 10%. One of my golden mini mugs will live in the forehead.

Mahalo for peeking!
Henrik

It's really great to see you back Henrick! Not only are you back, but back in a HUGE way too! YAY!!

I brought some paper clay, but I haven't really played with it yet...I like that dark clay body on yours for sure. 10%?...darn, I thought that stuff didn't shrink at all.

MadDog - mahalo! It is good to be playing with clay again. Kiln is cooking as I type!

Babalu - I hear you on the shrinkage. I thought it would be less - I guess it depends on the amount of paper pulp in the mixture. It does have a fair amount of grog in the clay. The clay body does have a great color when wet - and it fires to a off white/straw-ish color.

LeLeLiz - Mahalo! I hope to do a piece for the swap, but I need to put together a bunch of sample pieces for the projects I'll be doing with my upcoming hand-building class at the Hawaii Potter's Guild. There will be robots, Tiki mugs, bizarre fish, and creepy portrait busts. Good times.

TikiMojo and Sam - Mega Mahalos! I now get to spend the next three weeks chewing my nails as it dries. Hope it makes it!

Henrik
