Wendy- Yeah, a kiln load of broken sure stinks! I think I may have found the problem. It's not the firing, it's that two glazes do not like each other. I tried using clear on the inside of the sea horses instead of white and got 3 for 3. Now if I try that on 10 mugs I'll know for sure if that was the problem.
Kenny- You bet I was cryin' 'til I was hoarse! A guy can only take so much! Can't wait to get a big hug from you at Oasis, ol' chum!
Clarita- Thanks! Hopefully I've solved the problem!
Here's what managed to survive the sea horse holocaust. I'm still a few short of the edition, but I'll get them as time passes.
I'm also making some custom sea horses. This one I call The HELL HORSE. Solid red, black horns, white eyes. How much more scary can it get??
I also went nuts glazing some blanks of my Minimalist Moais. These are a new variant with no two the same. Callin' them Geo-Moais.
And just when you thought it was safe, Bowana's Tiki Freak Show blows back into town. New conjoined Moai pendants!
I'll have all of this and more available at the indoor vending at Tiki Oasis. Hope to see you there!
Thanks for visiting!
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

That's a bummer Bowana about the horsies...
I've used the Amaco glaze but have thinned it down, seems to set up faster and thicker than many of my other glazes I use.
Cya soon at TO, can't wait to see all your killer tiki goodness there!! aloha

Dave, all looks great. I'm sure the conjoined Moai pendants will be supremely popular at TO (I want one, too). The new minimalist Moais are perfect. Look forward to seeing the seahorses in person.
All the best!

HELL HORSE is awesome David, and so are the moais. Nice work as usual.
