Hey All,

I just got pm'ed and asked what I'm up to lately...

Well, with the wife's job cut back some, I found that I had to go back to work for the old boss full time again. I've got many new tv type products that I am working on for the man now...it's hard, it's stressful, and I would rather be in my studio full time. However, I knew when I went into my studio full time this last time that I would not be making the money that I did before...I did it cuz I love it, and could afford to make the move at the time. I will get back to the money comfort zone again, and then I will go back into the studio full time again. It's inevitable. It's what I want to do.

Still, I am turning and burning in the studio as well...it helps with the stress of the other job. There is all kinds of shit that I have my hands into right now...

I will have to update you all later on that, but I will leave you with this picture that I shot tonight...a picture is worth a million words.

Brings back fun memories of when Dan and I visited with you. Now I have a glaze strip wall too, tiny in comparison but I'm on my way. You have helped me so much, thank you forever, Wendy

No shinanigans boss; I'm filling some orders that should have been sent out eons ago, and preping to glaze a couple hundred mugs for the Queen.

See you all at MOJAVE OASIS!!

Ah-Ha!

I see our studios share one indispensable feature: The Washer and Dryer!
Awesome layout - I love seeing other artist's creative caves.

Happy new year!
Henrik

Teaks: Your welcome to come over for a visit anytime.

Henrick: Happy New Year to you too brother!

I'm starting to get really excited about the "1st" Mojave Oasis event coming up!



http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=38171&forum=17&start=0&270

If you know Queen Kamehameha, you already know that this piece of awesome property that she picked up in the middle of the Mojave is beginning to Phoenix into a wonderful magical new Tiki destination for all of us to go to and enjoy. A Camp Ground Extraordinaire!! A True Oasis!! And the 1st annual gathering of the tribe at this newest Shangri-la in the desert is in mid April.

Squid and I feel very honored that we were asked to produce the event mug for this first gathering. Thank you Queen K.

Anyway, the mugs are done...yay! Ms. QK choose a light turquoise glaze for the main 200 mugs, and our Clay Jams Bone White glaze for a special edition run of 20 mugs on top of that. There are also some artist proofs that are floating around out there too. I wished I had taken some more shots of the the mugs before I packed-um up to take out to the Campgrounds, but I didn't...Hopefully Queen K, or one of the fellas out there, will post some of these up in front the going on, and shoot a couple of other shots for you all at some point.

This is my favorite shot of the bunch: I should print this one and hang it in the studio I think it shows perfectly, Squid's look of - "God I love glazing, and look how much fun we are about to have"



Coming out of one of the kilns:



Grouping (shitty photo really, the mugs are darker, more like the top photo):



Special editions:





And on top of that...I think everyone has been contacted on the lists for Cobras and the cheaper version of the Mauna Loa Drum mugs. I still have a few more left to make on the "10 customs list". So hold on...they are coming...I will put EXTRA love into them



After that, I think the Mojave Oasis mug is going to be one of my last production cast type mugs for a while. I've got a show coming up with Kinny and the Toe that I'm looking forward too, and during this time that I find myself working for the man, I think I would like to get back into more hand building in the studio. It's the first love after all....

I'm driving these mugs out to the Lakes on the 11th, and heading on into Vegas for the weekend...If anybody is going to be at Frankie's on Sat the 12th, it would be fun to hook up

Enjoy the Day!!
