Nothing like drinking from a handmade mug. Pretty nice, both of them, but I'm pretty fond of how you keep working your theme in new and interesting ways. Makes me smile.

Are they low fire? I'm still looking forward to the clay conversation. Sending you PM. Maybe we can get a 'fire' under it!


Peace...

Peace up.

That's funny as heck, Babs. These mugs are the very first ones that have made me literally laugh out loud.

Can I carve little carrot designs all over the blank areas? And are you going to finish it in ...

Pink & White?

Baby Blue & White?

Carrot Orange and Green?

Easter Fantasia????? (Pink, yellow, white, sky blue and egg yolk orange)

HAPPY BUNNY DAY!!!



Thanks for bouncing in Hip Hip Your party bowl is next up...I have a start on it. It will be interesting to see if I can make this low fire clay sculpturally do what it is that I want it to do...stay tuned.


Piapo - You da man! Thanks for the schooling....."Rapetiki"...yes, yes...I like it! Here's a cool picture of Lapakahi on the Big Island.


Mudslinger - Thanks for the pms...It is fun shooting the bull with another clay nut.

Ben - Thanks, Your swap piece is sure making me Happy, Happy too!

Cammo - Sure brother, I'll glaze one of these mugs off the cuff...I'm seeing some fun coloring on one of these as well.

Well, This guy is just about done. I still have a little bit of burning to do on him yet, but he is very close. This guy is still very wet, and I may or may not have to fix a crack when he dries out. It's funny, I will most likely put a few coats of Spar on him when he dries, but I really don't think he will ever look better than he does right now. Kind of hard to tell from the pictures, but this drying palm has this wonderful light yellow hue to it that really turns me on. It will fade as the piece dries.







Sometimes, if an image of the "Great Mother" starts to show through in a carving, you just have to let it happen...Right Piapo?



Here is one area where I have not finished the burn yet, but you can see how I wish to depict a great battle tattooed on the ears.





This is what happens when you put your fingers to close to a mad rabbit.



I polled from many folks...eyes, or no eyes? Kinny is of the no eyes clan. It's running about 80% keep the eyes - 20% loose the eyes.



Birdman's boy got a little too close yesterday as well

Thanks Babalu, I love seeing you HappyHappy.
I'll vote to keep the eyes, we can't have a blind Rapetiki running loose, especially one who likes to Bite so much. I can see he took a lot of effort and planning and then he just came out the way HE Wanted to, Love those kind.

Gotta have eyes, maybe different from the poppers. He's great whatever you decide.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the cave drawings on the ears. You go Babalu! May the Bunny Mother Goddess be with you. Pretty nice bowl you got going on there too. The method looks very familiar.

Happy Birth Day Rick!

Holy Rabid Rabbit! I agree he looks great now, the yellowy palm makes him look soft. I'm sure it'll great no matter what you do to 'em.

Happy Birthday Rick!!!

Lapatiki doesn't even need to be pink now 'cause the ear tattoos just completely crank up the cute factor.

Fun stuff Babalu, I really like the "war tats" on the ears.
I'm sure whatever YOU decide on the eyes will be fine.

I vote eyes.

Babs,

Those cave (ear) drawings are too much. I about messed myself when I saw the pics. I love it. They remind me of Sid the sloth. Happy happy!

The Rapetiki is great! I love his LapaHei and all the crazy little touches you have put into him. Careful, your artistic genius is showing......

I'm a big fan,

G$
