Quick post to say I took the DEMOKU #2 and #3 out of the kiln yesterday morning and they are looking quite spiffy. Went with a simple old wood look for the glaze (as the sculpt was so busy to begin with) and did a vivid orange interior. Here is a peek - more photos and such tomorrow!




Mahalo for peeking!

Aloha everyone - remember me?

Been busy making and teaching clay stuffs for my hand-building class at the Hawaii Potter's Guild, and I apologize for the disappearing act. I did manage to put together some new goodies this weekend! After some gentle prodding by Ms. Vantiki I opted to do a halloween-ish mug. Wait a minute, you say, what does Halloween have to do with Tiki?! Why, my dear friend, do not forget about the zombie!



I made these fellows to serve Zombies in. The zombie is a drink I am dying to try - but I can't even begin to calculate how much it will cost me to get all the ingredients, and I don't think anyone on the island will make one up to TC standards. So I continue to wait patiently till I can visit a mainland tiki bar. In the meantime, I made these fellows. And yes, they do creep me out.

PS - eyes are made of multi-colored porcelain blended together.

Mahalo for peeking!
Henrik "VanTiki"

Van, I don't think that hand bone is anatomically correct but the total effect is absolutely awesome!

Mahalo everyone!

TikiG - I just may take you up on that offer some day!

MadDog - The bone was my attempt at adding some levity to what was turning into 2 ultra-creepy pieces. Don't know if it worked or not!

Hope to have them glazed up by Halloween!

Henrik

I would seriously kill for that Zombie mug.like seriously.and its not even finished.

You should really let poor folks like me set up a pay plan with you...like $100 a month or something. Then in a year and 1/2 it would be mine .


How about I buy all the booze to make your zombie and fed ex it to you and then you can send me the mug? Fair I think, eh?

The zombie mug is by far and away freakin' fantastic.

I just put the ZOmbies into the kiln for the bisque firing. As I feared, they will not be ready for Halloween. Not that I wouldn't have time to finish them - I'm just heading to Hilo soon to join up with my old rubber monster pals to shoot a movie for a week. Just like old times! So, needless to say, studio work will grind to a standstill for a bit. Here is a peek at the zombies just before they entered the kiln:



Mahalo for the Zombie love - LeLeLiz, I'll think about your mug layaway idea

Henrik

These are CREEPY GOOD Henrik...the eyes are killer! The family and I went to see that new zombie movie last night...Your guys here look better than the ones they had in the show.

I would love to hear more about you and your rubber monster making pals sometime. That's what Bowana does for a living too...I find the whole thing fascinating.

Don't stay off the board too long...I'll get the shakes and start Jonesing all over again.
