Crazy! Most animated/lifelike for sure. You really have a way with animals - maybe in a previous life you were a netsuke carver? Those old Japanese dudes had a knack with imbuing their animal sculptures with human characteristics like you do so well. The aggressive pose and the way you've subtly manipulated the proportions with the body really are very clever....and you can drink out of it! I can't wait to see what you do with the "Cobra's Fang" concept....

Rick, I was going to PM or call but I thought maybe someone else might want to know this too. I'm working on my next mug (yeah, I've got the bug ) and want to add something to the inside bottom of the mug (inspired by Dani's Deep Sea Rum Barrel http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=25817&forum=18&hilite=rum%20barrel ). Seems the easiest way would be to add a medallion after the mug is pulled from the mold, making sure not to trap any air so it doesn't go KABLOOEY! Here's my question, can I make a push mold for the medallions? I know they use push molds for polymer clay, does it work with ceramic clay too? Can you make the mold out of plaster? Would you need a mold release (talc?) or do you let the clay set and dry a little so it shrinks away from the mold like you do with slip? I can experiment if I need to, but why re-invent the wheel.

Thanks

Thanks for the great responses all...I have to get back to this here bowlie. Will start tonight...been busy moving out the kids into their new home, and prepping this old vintage travel trailer I have for a complete aluminum re-skinning (a big project for me)...so, I will be bouncing back into metal again for a minute after this bowl is done. A tiki time out if you will.

Mad Doggy, Love the Babaloon Scull! Sweet idea! Absolutely you can make a small press mold out of plaster if you want to...simple. And sure, you can add a medallion, or whatever to the bottom of a mug like GoGo did. Ideally, you would also want to be able to get your hand down in there to work the wet clay if you go that route...another option would be to just bisque the parts separate - glaze - then let the glazes join the 2 parts together in the final firing.

Great, thanks Babalu. The mug design is short and wide-mouthed, should be able to get inside to work the clay.

What an awesome work of art! Actually, the Babaloon 3 idea was for you Babalu, I could never pull off something like that. The mug I'm working on is much, much more simple and the skull goes inside the mug instead of on the outside. Had someone offer to GIVE me an old kiln. It has at least one element out, I'm trying to find out what it will cost me to repair it.

Thanks Cammo and Benjamin!

I think this guy glazed up quite nicely. Hope you all don't mind me posting so many pictures...he's very 3D, and their lots of angles. This Babaloon #2 will be showing along with a few Lapatikis at the Light Gallery starting next Saturday. I hope I can finally meet a few of you there.

Peace.

BABALU!!! That is sooooo off the chart!!! It's all too cool but I especially love the dirty fangs, Babaloons are not known for their dental hygiene!
