Hey Mike have you read the warning on clay dust! Just kidding I know, Old habits are hard to break! I used molding clay on the ashtray, I just took the picture when it was sitting outside for a couple of hours, Living by the beach in So.Cal, Often I just leave my finished items sit out and let the sun do the rest, I have used plaster very hard great detail, Wood W/dremil tool, Soap hmm! Wax sometimes hmm! Roma#2 works well, Sculpt clay is soft and hard to work, Best to let it get leathered, I actually use my own method to make clay cylinders for round mugs, Not with the PVC pipe and wrapping with clay, I extrude it! My own secret method I invented, Can't tell you! Here is an example I just did from an extruded cylinder:





I really like this tall mug alot, I can't wait to make a mold of it, Then glaze it! What you think? Mahalo! Gogo

Thanks Mike,

I was asked to pick 10 of my favorite ceramic items, So I had to dig around and see what I have done! I started making tiki mugs in 2002-2003 took a long break 2004-2005 for personal reasons, Got really back into it with Dani's help, Because of Ogga-Mooga posting some old stuff I did, 2006-Present, Thank You! Anyway here is a picture of some of the stuff I have done, Most are a run of 25 or 50, I do have some "One of" mugs out there and pendent's, Add some pictures if you wish, I was looking for a response on what your 10 favorites are, If any! I have a lot of stuff I'm working on still, With the help of Dani, Most of my ceramics are sold by "word of mouth" or by contacting me, Tiki events, At FreakyBoutiki in San Diego, Thanks Hank and Rita, And from time-to time on E-Bay, So Thank You all who have bought and supported our work!



What you think? Mahalo! Gogo

My FOM Moai mugs are, of course my personal favorite.

But, other than that, my favorite is the Mo-hine - she's fabulous!!

Gogo - everything I have bought from you is tied for my favorite.

I use my FOM moai mug more than any of the others, but they are all fantastic.

Keep up the great work!

BTW - what are those yellow mugs in the front?

Nicole just saw them and I don't like the look in her eye....

That's nice looking pineapple texture. I have to tell you a story about pineapple texture... I wanted a ceramic pineapple wedge to use as a display garnish. I put a chunk of clay in a plastic bag and headed for the grocery store produce section. I picked up a pineapple and *casually* looked all around, when I was sure no one was looking I SLAPPED the clay (in the bag) on the pineapple. I slipped the bag back into my pocket, replaced the pineapple and walked out. However, once in the car, I decided the bag kept the clay from capturing all the detail so I went back in and bought the damn pineapple. I took it home and pressed a slab of clay directly to the pineapple, bisqued the clay and ate the pineapple. Then I used the bisqued negative mold to texture my pinapple wedge The things we do in the name of "art"!

Nice! Gogo, I keep trying to learn more about ceramics - can you use a mason stain in thin porcelain and then high fire it to give the translucency of jade? It would make an awesome heitiki.

Thank You! Babs - You guys are going off! At the Babs studio! Hey Mike, I'm not sure, I don't fire that high, To enough about that. I did go Munktiki style and airbrushed a vintage Ken Occurr tiki mug - I have had this mold for sometime now, I thought I'd let the tiki out of the vintage mold!





I also finished glazed my "Love Monkey #9" I used a "Cats Eye" look glaze on the monkey, The Moari has real New Zealand abalone eyes, I think it turned out pretty cool, What You Think? Mahalo! Gogo

You always leave out "do".

Isn't that a line out of "Murder by Death"?
(Does GROG operate DVD player?)

PS - Nice work Gogo. I Googled Ken Ocurr and didn't find anything- is that inspired by a vintage mug or cast from an actual vintage mold? I like the "cat-eye glaze" look.
