Actually it looks like the Animation was inspired by the Moai in the beginning and the Moai inspired by the Animation, Full Circle!

Man, those Mugs are looking Shweet! I think you need to mass produce that one for sure!

Thanks for visiting, Haikai, Birdman, GROG, Benz, and Babs!

I finally got some shots of the glazed Alohas. Photo sessions are tough! Gotta get the best angles, ya know.











It took about 2 days worth of work just for the glaze. I wanted them to be very bright and colorful.



I also made these two little troublemakers. Hey kid, give us your lunch money!!

Thanks for looking.

Bo

Great shots Sir B!!

Still, no matter how you shoot these babes, ya just are not ever going to be able to capture all the amazing detail in this piece...like the sand glaze the babes are standing on...

I think this is hands down the best work I have ever fired in my kiln!

You Sir are the BOMB!

I hear the DRUMS!

Bowana:

This mug is so fantastic that my wife made sure I got to see it. The artistry and detail is amazing. I especially like how you have the one girl's arm set up to hold the cocktail umbrella and the other girl stepping on the tiki's tooth.

OK, so I've been one of those lurkers. But Bowana, these Aloha Sisters and the mug you made with the girl surfers are excellent. Damn there are a lot of talented folks here. Both men & women! I'm in awhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.. Nice, nice! Keep it up.
