Alien Aloha now waits at the House of Babalu to be fired. In the mean time, here's a sneak preview of Plain Jane before the glaze fire. I used underglazes on this piece. The colors will change dramatically after the firing. They're going to get darker and more vibrant. Last thing to do will be to put a clear gloss coat on top.

leleliz- Thank you, my good woman!
seeksurf-Thanks, bud! Right back at cha!
jab tiki- Hey Johnny! Where ya been? Thanks for checking in, bro.
GROG- Thanks. Yep, Bowana sick monkey.
mp- Thanks Mike!
Creative Chimp- Oops! Need some TP? Thanks for the comps!
LLT- You butt-looker! Thanks for stopping by, ya weirdo!
BigToe- Black glaze it is! Deity, huh? Takes one to know one, bub! Thanks for looking!
TikiG- Thanks for visiting, Greg!
TheBigT- Putting on that texture is only fun for the first 5 minutes. It gets old reeealy fast!
Babalu- Thanks for the history, my friend! (saved me from doing it!) I'm gonna have to spend a good long time studying in the black glaze department.
4WD- I was gonna call it "The Ambassador of Kick-Yer-Assador" but I think that name has already been taken. What's next? Well, you'll see...
laojia- Merci for your visit!
leleliz- Hey, you're back!
benella-Merci, Benjamin! Merci!
tobunga- You said a lot for being speechless! You are correct, the triangle shapes are eyes. They look like part of a headdress but they're not. The Giger Xenomorphs had no eyes, but then they were freaky aliens, right?! Thanks for the complements, Sir October!
Tahitiki- Thanks for stopping by!
MadDogMike- Thanks Mike! Yeppers, it's a pinch pot!!

More later. Thanks for stopping by!

Bowie

leleliz-Haha, thanks! Yes, maybe I have a way with ceramic women, but with real women...well, that's another story.

Tiki Lee-Thanks, Lee. A limited run of the Aloha Alien would be nice. The mold making would be a nighmare though!!

seeksurf-Thanks for your visit, bro!

kustomtiki-Hey John! Thanks for stopping by. Say hello to the family for me!

Billy- Sorry I couldn't make the Chop. How did your freshly sharpened knife work out?

Benz-Portrait sculpting mugs, hmm..I like that!

mijaba-No sister yet. But give me some time and there will be!

harro-Hey, were ya been? Nice to hear from you. Hope Jolly ol' England is treating you right!


Plain Jane is glazed, but not finished being fired yet. She's being difficult.
On the other hand, The Aloha Alien came out quite well.











The pictures give it a bit of a brownish hue, but it's really a dark charcoal grey.

Thanks for your visit!

Bowie
