Sir B,

You are just plain one of the most incredible cats I've ever met. What are these figure 5 - 6 inches tall?

Folks, I don't know how many of you have ever tried to sculpt the human figure accurately before, but it ain't easy! It takes years and years of practice, and still you have to born with skills to be good at it...not many can do this. Not to mention the dress code that is involved...

Bowana -

Wow man! If this is what you come up with when you "go nuts" - brother, let it rip!! This mug blows me away in execution and style and believe me, if I were to give this mug away as a gift to any one of my "non-tiki" friends or co-workers - any one of them would be PROUD to own it. A classic in the making. Salute!

Thanks for your visit, Benella, Benz, GROG, Babs, (yes, I sculpt while wearing Power Rangers PJs ) Clarita, and TikiG! The girls are drying out at this moment, getting ready for the big oven. There's been a few issues with the drying, but that's ceramics for you. Keep your fingers and toes crossed.

Non-Tiki shameless plug:
Here's some links to some short clay animation movies I made another lifetime ago:

Dave, I couldn't stay in lurker mode any longer without letting it be known what I thought, you are an INCREDIBLE dude! Babs is right, the human figure is very tough to sculpt, you inspired me a while back to buy some clay to experiment with but mine have a tendency to be smashed back into a lump afterwards! I have never regreted coming down to the first chop at Babs place when you guys did the mold-making demo / hot dog cart chop. I do regret however that I haven't been able to make more chops for whatever reason. Everyone in this San Diego click of artists has given me more inspiration in so many ways, and in such a short period of time that it has taken over a big part of my life! My god, I'm playing with palm logs, sticks I find on the ground, clay, wood from exotic places, rock and bone, paint, I even bought a fucking Kiln that I haven't had a chance to wire up yet! I need a bigger fucking garage thanks to you guys! Regardless of the financial burdon you all have placed on me, I have to send flowers to all the SD choppers that are responsible; Dave, you Cammo, and Babs display an amazing level of talent, teamwork, imagination, and congeniality that you 3 should form a joint venture of some sort! Buzzy, what can one say about the 1-man Tiki factory who so unselfishly provided me with my first truckload of logs, I won't forget man! 4WD Bill who opened up his place to all of us so many times and welcomed my son into the chopping world, gave me some of the best advice on getting started, you da man, Bill! The girls of chop, Mieko, Kate, cheeky, Zaya and Hilda, the steadfast rocks of the chops providing inspiration, motivation, and stability, and a whole lot of great food, the chops wouldn't function properly without them! Clysdale with his diverse styles and different outlook, I'm amazed at what you produce bro, makes me mad I got rid of my old surfboards too! Billy, you are turning into a chopping machine, seems this group has had a lasting affect on you too! Don't stop being you, you made me laugh many times bro, good medicine! Erik the Red, lurking in the shadows too, thanks for the good cigar brudda, next time I see you I have a Krush Classic I want to hand off to you, I think you'll like it! Can-Sam & Pops, great folks, I enjoy your company and appreciate the offer to ride down with you, hope you guys are there when I can make another chop!

I don't know if I left anyone out, if I did, it's Alzhiemers setting in, but the last thing I want to do is alienate anyone or hurt anyones feelings. I just thought I would use up space on Daves thread to say thanks to a group of very talented folks who have drastically changed my life for the better since I became aquainted with you all. And that really goes out to ALL the talented folks here at TC whose art and Ideas I will copy in the future, (LOL)

Wow T birdman, that was really nice! I'll never forget when you asked me to burn a design on one of your carvings. I was never so nervous! It was a real honor.

Bowana, those short movies you made are so cool! I like the part in the third one when the skeletons are walking by the door real quick. What other neat things are you hiding from us?

Cool vids Dav! I'm guessing the 91X one was a station contest?

Time for a tiki claymation.

Thanks to all who stopped by !


GROG, maybe Bowana swap mug for rights to GROG's invention of wheel.


Birdman, what can I say? Those were some of the most sincere and heartfelt words I've ever heard. I hope everyone who should read it has done so. Thanks for expressing yourself. Hope it's not long before we see some new work from you!

Zaya, what other things am I hiding from you all? Well, I may have a few more tricks up my sleeve, but they'll have to wait.

Cammo, you are a funny guy!

tikithomas, if you have a youtube account, post a dialog for Skeletons in the Closet!

4WD, yeah it was for 91X's "X-Pose The X" contest in 1991. I won 3rd place with that vid.

Babalu, right back at ya, brother! Thanks for always having your studio open for us wandering ceramicists.


Speaking of which, here is the latest mug I made in Babalu's studio.


"La Calaverita" is it's name. (Thanks, Clarita)


Thanks for the pictures, Sir Babs!

Bowie

Thanks, Hank!

The Skull mug is being galzed right now, and The Aloha Chix just made it out of the kiln. In the meantime I came up with another mug.







The GIRLY mug! With all those flowers and stuff I couldn't think of a more fitting name.
