I wanted to make some stemware for martini glasses, Dani loves martini's, So here is the rough sculpt of " Wahine Martini " We will add the martini glass after glazing and a hula skirt, I think these will turn out pretty cool, I'll post some finish pictures later:






Next, I really think Squid and Babalu's drum mug turned out Great, I have been working on one for awhile myself, I wanted to make mine a little bit large, Because I want to drink beer out of mine, I also made a mold of the base drum sculpt, So I can add various sculptured pieces to it, I have been to a few museums and have seen the pottery from this Oceanic region, So with the help of Dani, I'm going to glaze this piece, To look old and authentic:




Cheers! Gogo

I love that martini glass.

curious...on the mugs where you add the grass skirt it looks almost like the skirt is sometimes come out a little too stiff. I was wondering if instead of using raffia (or sea grass. not sure what you use) you ever thought of using maybe a silkier material...something with a little more flow to it. Kind of like what they used on older hula nodder.

not like I know shit about making mugs but I assume something as delicate as a martini glass you would hand wash anyways which would allow for you to use such a material.

just a thought! cant wait to see the stemware all complete regardless of what type of skirt she(they) end up with!

Hubba Hubba!



Gogo, I found some brown poly twine (Do It Center brand) I used for a mug skirt. Granted, it's not a "natural material", but it's soft, strong, waterproof, and it still looks similar to rafia.

Thanks Teakey, Still don't know what your refereeing to, But Thanks all the same, Leiliz, Dani makes skirts out of a material similar to raffia but synthetic, She makes the skirts like a necklace attachment so you can un-hook it, Then re-attach it after washing, Thanks Maddogmike for the info, I'll look into it it, Very nice of you! And TY too Soccertiki my bro! Cheers! Gogo

Kinda similar in shape Teakey, Not the same though, Here is a picture of my finished PNG look drum mug, I'm going to drink beer out of mine! I made this for myself, I think the glaze turned out very, close to an original PNG clay piece, And that was the look I was going for, I have seen a good share of originals, Which the makers are limited to the colors I used, Cheers! Gogo
