Babalu!
That Man-o-War is Awesome!
Something about those jellyfish,the way they move,the way they function...
like aliens or something! And what about those venus Fly Traps?WTF?
Anyways,that man-o-war is gonna have to have at least 3-4 colorways!
What kinda pallette are ya considering for that fine work of artistic mastery?

This is a great project you guys have cooking - what a cool idea to branch out from the chop-chop into mugmaking for the masses. I can't wait to see the fired and glazed results. Manowar is my favourite I think, just cause it's so damn weird and original. Will he have a removable head?

Hey thanks LLT…I think your right, the Man of War is going to need a mixed palate of color for sure…It’s been so long since I took a look at all of the cone 06 glazes that are in the market place that I’m going to have to jog down to Free Form Clay and look at all of their test trees. If the Gods are smiling on us on Saturday, and the casting turns out good, I’m sure that I will ruin a few of these testing glazes.

Paipo, thanks for the feedback man! Yea, that top is removable. I got to go down and buy me a Big Gulp with a straw to make sure that I make that straw hole big enough. Those will be cut into the greenware after I pull the cast on them.

Peace….

Is that an Olympic oval in the background?

I kinda miss clay too. Used to have 2 of the big ones.

Plus a gas car kiln that was bigger than a van.

The clay room at our old shop used to say on the wall...

Start the Day with A little Clay!

Aloha.

Hey Ben, thanks for stopping in man…

Nope, that’s not one of the big ovals, it’s one of the octagons….wished I had a big oval, or better yet, I wished I just had a smaller kiln for testing and such. These things munch power.

Very nice claywork, Babalou. I love to see a tiki with attitude who's out of the box, so to speak!

Hey thanks for jumping in Sam…

We had some fun yesterday playing with these molds. I’m sure there are several ways to approach molding a mug, but TikiDav and I did with what we had on hand. Lots of things learned from ole TikiDav there…be watching for a mug or two to take on life from him too. I have a new appreciation for what Squid, and you other mug makers do. We didn’t get finished yesterday; we will jump back into it here soon. I guess pictures are much better than words, so….

Thanks for the prop SP...

I've had a few really great PM's come my way...thank you very much for the complements!

Yes, if they turn out ok, I will be selling some others. I still have to come up with a funky glaze pallet or two, and pray that the kiln Gods are smiling down on me...I haven't fired up my kiln in over 2 years. Looks like she's working ok though...

I had originally planned on just making one for everyone that attended that last Chop, and one for those few regulars that couldn't show up, but then I thought it would be nice to sell some extras that we could use the profits for to help fund a Large Luau Chop Chop, or something along those lines. Of course, as always, you would all be invited to this Chop or any other for that matter.

I have no idea on cost right now, but it won't be over the top.

Let me get one or two done and let's see what we come up with. I guess the number of folks that show interest when we get to that point will more or less determine the number I build?? I thought maybe 60 total??

I will be at the next Chop this Saturday (unless the Bird is born around then)...Let me see what all the other Choppers there say.

Hey, thanks again!...
