Thanks Rob, G, & MD -

And thank you Spiked! You must have seen these at Ohana in NY...Man, I had a great time there!! I will HAVE to make next years event too.

I will only have about 20 (+or-) of these Cobra Fang Mugs at Oasis this year ($85. each), so stop over and visit in Artist's Alley (inside this year) early.

Why thank-ye master Kinny

Things are busy round here...little update:



Anticipating that there might be some folks a little tight on funds at this years Oasis, I thought it might be nice to have a little cheaper version of my new Cobras Fang mug to complement the other muli-glazed (more expensive version) that you have all seen (above post)...Sooooo, I've created the "Yin and Yang Cobras!" - Git yer Fang-Shway on baby - these guys will be available at Oasis this year in a "very" limited number at $55 each, or a $100 for the pair.



If anyboty is not going to be at Oasis this year and would like either the $55 or the $85 version (or set) of this Cobras Fang mug(s), just let me know, and I will put you on this list I've started for those that can't make it to Oasis...those on the "not coming to Oasis list" will need to wait on the firings that I will be doing shortly after Oasis, but they can still lock themselves in on one. No, I don't need any funds right now, just pm me you name...that will be enough to hold you on this list. I've got room for about 20 spots (mugs) on this list. PM soon....12 sold at Ohana - 20 to 25 will be available, first come, first serve at Oasis - the rest is for the above list. I'm doing a grand total of 50 to 60 of these mugs, and a "few" custom sculpted ones in 'whatever glazes'...that will be it...no more snakey mugs! It will be on to the next design.

Speaking of next design, after all of the ML proto-types I have done, I have decided to go ahead an make a master sculpt for the Mauna Loa Drum mug for casting. In keeping with the "Crypto feel", it too will only be produced in a small a numbered run too, and that will be it...assuming that everything goes fine in the molding process that is Anyway, I'm hoping to have a few of these done for Oasis if all goes right. I still need a day to carve up the mask and the bird yet, but the below photo should give you some idea of the direction I'm taking in my design concept of this classic drum's image to a drinking vessel (mug). The next image you see will be of one of the castings



I'm getting ready to pull out of the shop for a few weeks of family fun with the grand kiddies on the other side of the Country starting July 31st - It's cuts into my Oasis stuff I know, but it sure is going to be a hoot. I can't wait - Ohhh happy summer time!

Thanks for stopping in!

PS: Sorry for the photo quality - I lost my camera and had to shoot this stuff with my phone...man, I have to correct that soon; I can't live without a camera

There must be balance in all things; yin with yang, yellow glaze with brown glaze, family with art. Have a great time with your family my friend, the clay will wait patiently as long as you wrap it well in heavy plastic (the family, however, will not wait patiently wrapped well in heavy plastic )

I really like the yin/yang color scheme, Babs. We'll definitely be at your table first thing at Oasis.

Your cobra is SO realistic - good thing I like snakes (my mom...not so much!). Very nice work.

Looking good Baibalu. Haven't seen anything from Baiwana in awhile, where is that boy?
You need to get Bai Park Buzzy over there slinging some more mud.

Get ready - coming soon

Hey, I thought I would give you all quick peek of the 'goings on' around here before I took off on my trip to SC.

First, let me apologize for the quality of the below pictures...I lost my camera and had to shoot these with my phone (daddy needs a new camera).

I have some Cobra's Fang Mugs ready for Oasis...I did a very small 'tasty' sell on them at Ohana, but this Oasis is really the kick off for the design....I won't be doing that many more of them from those that you see in the pictures below. It's time if you have been thinking about one :)







And yes, after over a year, and all of those prototypes...I finally have the molds finished for the Mauna Loa Drum design that I have been working on. These are fresh castings shown here (un-fired clay). He's a big one....over 10 inches tall. He will have that nice juicy feel to him...one needs just the right thickness on the casting I think...a mug should feel like a mug. I will be pumping these guys out when I get back in 10 days...How many am I going to have for Oasis...not many...maybe 12? Cost? - not sure yet, but prices will vary.







I will been "inside" at the Artist's Alley area at Oasis...hope to see you there early. More when I get back....YAY OASIS!

- thanks for stopping in.

Thanks you guys. I wished I could post pictures from my phone of this beach house we are kicking it in this week, but it doesn't work. I feel bad that I'm not in the studio prepping for Oasis...naw, I take that back, this is WAY more fun here!
