OK Dav, I'll put the carving on hold for now and ready something....How about a tribute "So Cal. Chop Chop" mug? We can make the mold, I'll cast and fire, glaze just enough mugs to give everyone at the Chop 2 each, then we'll take a hammer to the mold....that sounds like fun!



Okay then, looks like we've got our man. Post shots of it as you go along, Babalu so we can make sure that it's moldable.

........and what's up with The Lemon Grove Kids, Cam? I've lived here in SD my whole life and have never heard of them. Are they a well kept secret for some reason? I'd love to see the movies, but probably won't have time at the Chop. Where can you rent them?

Lemon Grove Kids - Just read the post on page 1 all about them.

I may not be able to get a DVD of them, but I CAN get "RAT PFINK A BOO BOO" on VHS by the same genius of filmmaking, also shot in Lemon Grove in his backyard and some say it is the GREATEST achievement in the art of film ever produced by Grovers. Others say it's the worst movie of all time, but there is simply no accounting for taste.
Either way, it's a must view while in shady Lemon Grove.

And - the best video store in San Diego is Kensington Video on Adams Ave., they have (almost) everything.

Here's the progress on my Black Ulua fish -

It's all carved in 1/2 a palm wood log, old stuff and reall brittle, so I gotta be real careful.

First the design -


Trace it on a smoothed down log-


Side view -


Go in with the Japanese back saw to get the fin planes -


Details -


Smooth that fish down -


End view -


It's still got a long way to go...

Hey All,

Major coolness Cammo! You bringing him to the Trashy Bash?

TikiDav just left from posting up over here for a minute. We talked a little about Tonga and all the stuff I missed….I’m bummed, it sounds like everyone really cut it up. I need to try and make the next. Anyway, you Tonga folks f**ked up! Dave only made 2 of these lamps, and none of them sold at the event??….now, there is only 1 left as Babalu got first pick.


Ok Dave, I took about 40 minutes or so after you left to start the first sketch for the “So. Cal. Chop Chop” tribute mug. I will finish this one (maybe tonight – will post) and go on to the next sketch (they will get better)...I only have this real soft oil clay at the moment to play with….it’s a trip! I will get some plaster to mix up for a core on the next ones, and see what other type of oil based clay I can lay my hands on. Lately, I’m kind of into this sea turtle shell headdress look. I will try one without it too. Let’s see, what do we typically get at these Chops…15 people or so? That’s 30 mugs at 2 each…any newbies coming? Babalu has a big kiln.


Trashy events are starting in the “Babalu Chop Area” already…kickin’ it with some crazy locals last night….

Rick, lately all your carvings are looking like the Grinch! Are you from the Geisel family tree?

Cam, that fish project is gonna be impressive! Time for you to start your own carving thread!

Wheeler,

Humm...Green eggs and ham, I do not like them Sam I am...

Not related, but I did grow up on the stuff...This one kind of looks like the Grinch on LSD.

That fish is going to be much more South Seas before I'm through with it. Got some oddball staining ideas up ma sleeve. Ya'll see.

And I think Babs' stuff looks underwatery in a Grinchy kind of way. Mermen and Nemo's Lost City of Mu. Give it some scales, dude! Or a seaweed necktie! Or more teeth - little pointy teeth! You could also weather it a bit when you're done - put some long palm-log cracks in it.... hmmm...

The Babalu mug looks good, Rick. Just a couple of things to consider.

If this one is just a sketch, try using some harder clay on the final piece. It is going to have to survive some man-handling while being molded. Roma Plastelina a good clay to use.

Behind the shell looks like it could get caught in the mold. Try tapering it back a bit for a smoother transition. Either that, or we could leave it as it is and curve the separation line of the mold to fit the contour better. It's a more difficult molding procedure, but certainly do-able.

The shell sticking up above the lip of the mug might make drinking from it a bit of a challenge, (especially after having a few) unless the drinker uses a straw. I dunno. What do you guys think?

Hey Dav,

Thanks for the critique, but this one is going to get bagged...just want to get my hands oily with something.

Will keep posting so that you can keep checking for undercuts. Where do you buy your oil clay at here in SD? Free Form is suppose to have our plaster in today. I'm going to pick up a couple hundred pounds at lunch if it came in on the truck...going to grab some slip too. Your using all cone 04 slip on your other lamps right? Don't have any low fire glazes right now, so I will also pick up some different stuff to do a test firing with, or a least get a new catalog to see what's available.

For the next one...let's see, Cammo wants sharp teeth, and I think wheeler wants it to be a little less Grinchy, any other requests from you Choppers?

__PS. If you guys have any images of past art that you would be interested to see turned into a mug, please post._______________

Someone had once suggested making Oki Doki's head into a mug. I always thought that was a great idea since he was born at the Oki Oki and has sort of become the unofficial Chop mascot.

Hey Babalu, you can get Roma clay at Aaron Bros. Any other oil clay that's worth a dang you'll probably have to order. I have some extra Roma you can use and some other harder clay if you want to give it a try.

And yes, I'm using cone 04 slip for the lanterns.
