Excellent mug, very Bowana! I hear you about not having to worry about molds, if it wasn't for the exploding factor, making original mugs would be a total pleasure.. have a wonderful new year!

Man, that "Bowie" mug is out of this world. The power in that pose, as if he is ready to break all bonds, is just viceral. Awesomeness!

Aloha!

Hey bowana. Not sure if you found a solution for this :-

I actually have that all the time, inside my patterns, im ment to produce those lines at the same distance appart, and then run over from the other direction, if done correctly it leaves a net pattern. I can do it clean already, but im trying to learn this other style. Anyway if you hold the chisel OR the mallett hard you cant create the effect, both hands must be held loose so the chisel bounces twice, and leaves an indent.
Im just guessing the wood you use is real soft. Anyway after i block out, if i want it clean, you can push the chisels through by hand/ or hold it vertically and pull the chisel back with the grain. When you pull it off, It looks like its been hit with every grade of sand papaer. I usually only use flats or 2's or 3's to scrape.

It's been 11 days since your last post. What have you been up to?
You never posted a pic of the finished/glazed War Pig.

That's a mere 8 seconds in "Bowana time"...


Check back in about three months.

Buzzy Out!

Aloha and thanks for visiting!

LLT- Yep, conquering two shores (in the good Las Vegas Way of course!)
Gotta broaden my horizons!

Lake Surfer- The hardest part about it was getting that "nudge" just right.
I wanted it to look about to jump off the base! Thanks for stopping by!

GROG- Oh my God! I killed GROG!!! The War Pig, you ask? I'm afraid I can't say anything about that
right now. Stay tuned though...

amate- A shot glass you say? That's some serious drinking! Thanks for visiting!

Jonesy- Lil' Tuff Guy is dry now...firing soon!

Benz- Thanks, my friend! Screw the mold process!

Babalu- Hmm. yeah, eye tails, that's a good term for them. What's next? See
I'll be over to ruin soon!

hiltiki- Thanks, girl! Can't wait to see what you come up with at TikiG's Chop!

4WD- I didn't want the PNG one to look exactly like the picture in the book, so
that was the method I came up with. I have the terrible habit of unconsciously
duplicating things verbatim.

Hank- 'hanks!!

AlohaStation- Thanks, and the feeling is mutual!

BIG tiki scott- Thanks! Can ya tell Kona Style is my fav?!

kountzyro- Thanks from waaaay on the other coast!

congatiki- I thought I killed GROG too, but he posted a second comment so I guess
I wasn't so lucky!!

leleliz- You are right, I do need to make and post more hand built mugs! Glad you are
enjoying them!

surfintiki- Thanks bro, and you were right about GROG!!

AKUAE- Merci mon ami!

laojia- Merci mon ami to you too!

Clarita- Uh oh! Did you have some trouble with explosions in the kiln?
Gracias por tu visita! feliz año nuevo!

teaKEY- Yeah, Gecko and I must have been looking at the same picture.
Great minds do think alike you know! hahaha!

Aweulekuula- Thanks for stopping in! BTW, nice TC name!

Bai- NOOO!! I killed Bai! Oh please come back to life!
Can you hear me?? Say something!!

Rainhawk- That wood was eucalyptus which is very hard. I found that if I hit the
chisel hard enough so that the wood chips off with just one whack
that it reduced the amount of those annoying lines a bit. Still haven't
quite perfected it. Thanks for the input. I'll give it a try on my next carving!

Buzzy/GROG- It's been 11 days? Sheesh, feels like it's only been about 8 seconds!


So as Lil' Tuff Guy dries out, I started another mug.

It's based on the Hawaiian images that are sort of like woven basketry covered with feathers.


Only mine's not covered with feathers!


I made a few wood carvings and a pendant with this same design,
so now a mug!




Babalu was surprised at the size of these guys and suggested that
I post a picture that shows a familiar object for scale. I think everyone
knows this guy, huh?

Thanks for stopping by and happy 2010! Aloha, Mr. Hand!

Bowie
