Hey thanks Hewey & Benella...your words keep me going!

Dave...Hey dude, I got 3 "MoW's" pulled so far

Here's the first pull on the one Dave and I helped Cammo with...nice little mug. I think Cam wants to have some of these for sale at Oasis. I think he might be over guessing on just how many that can be done....we'll see once he dives in. We both have full times else where too. Time to get dirty Cammo!

Have'n a little fun this morning...I did a "one off" in celebration of my new grandson "The Bird"...I will have to do some sort of funky different glaze on this one...plan to set it free into the world at some point, if it turns out...I want to help these kids build up the kiddie's kitty however I can.








Okay...a little vanity add on ...Amy and I decided that as new grand parents, we would share in a mid-life crisis thing together...we brought this 68 Cougar...we have both wanted one since we were dating as kids. Even got the all important Benzart hanging from the rear view mirror. Time to go on a road trip!! Fear and Loathing baby!!

Congrats on the Bird!Being a grandparent is the greatest!

That Cougar is very clean. 302 or 351?

Thanks Wheeler, It was fun to meet your grand babies...they are great kids! Brother, you look waaaay too young to be a grandpa!

The Cougar has the 302 in it. I wished it had the 351. Still, she gets up and goes....you can take her for a spin at the next Chop.

Hey,

Well, I have a few test colors to show now on the Man of War mug. Hope some of you will throw back some feed back on color choices that you see here, or even maybe some that you don't see here...I hate glazing...always have.













This is the one I sculpted for Cammo...he glazed it up nicely. I'm sure he would like some input on color as well if you don't mind?

I like the earth tones for the man of war they show off the mug without distracting. As for Oki? It's a fun mug and all of the colors look nice. I'm kind of partial to the purple and dark blue though.

Thanks for jumping in Tikisgrl. I think I need to do another test firing. I had a look in my head with the color on the Man of War, but these colors just aren't jumping back at me like I thought they would. I think that pinks gotta go for sure. Having the lid and the body more the same value, or the same hue seems to work better.

great work on these! Still diggin the Man-o-War!Head and body same hue fer sure! The darker blue one and earth/brown one are looking snazzy Babalu! The speckles in the brown one are pretty cool!
How about an olive-ish tone?
Great Job man!

Big thanks for the critique LLT, it helps tons...Olive sounds interesting...are you thinking something more opaque? Getting store brought olive is kind of hard to find in a translucent glaze. Keep the bottom, interior, face, and logo on the back different...translucent? Again, sounds interesting...worth a try for sure.

Going to do another firing in a few days if anyone else has any ideas on color I would very much love to hear your thoughts.

Well, This firing went much better...Kind of like Xmas opening kilns like this. Many flavors to pick from. Any favorites?


Cammo glazed this first one. I think the process has mucho potential.


This next one is one I did for the summer art swap (carving area thread). It has 2 heads; one of which I hand built just for this swap.






his next one was a tribute mug to my new grandson..."the Bird"


The next several are in no order...




I glazed this one as per LLT mentioned.

Oops..missed one
