The glaze is AMAZING!

SO much life in that mug - gives me the creeps! I can't tell you how much I love the sculpted bottom of the mug. How did you fire it? Was it on stilts? What temp? So many questions! You are the clay master!

Whoa...I haven't been on this thread for a while. Still have some of the same stuffs under wraps on the table. That sloooooow pill is starting to wear off on me now...time to jump back in.

I started these 2 new mugs at Oasis yesterday at the Chop booth. I still have to detail and thin them out a bit, but there's enough here that I think you can kinda see the direction I'm going with them.



This guy needs to get a lot meaner looking...


Trophy Head Mug


I'm really intrigued with these Trophy Heads. I haven't found many images of them, so if anyone out there has a picture or two they might want to share I would sure appreciate it. These trophy heads below were made by the Iatmul people - Middle Sepic, New Guinea. The color image shown below was just posted not long back on the Photo Association thread of Bilge by some nice person. If you don't know about trophy heads...The Iatuul peoples collected real heads from their enemy's to make these. They would take a cleaned skull and build up clay around it in order to make it look as close to their victims as they could. In reality, they were going for realism approach on these works...interesting. Little shells for eyes. Real hair. They must have pit fired these a little to harden up the clay some...probably not much as to avoid shrinking of whatever clay body they were using. Whats so cool about these to me is that they were made with CLAY! I have hardly seen any type of sculptural clay imagery that comes from the South Pacific at all....Any of you?




Here's a few other cool pictures of a Waupanal (Men's House)- Kwoma Village of Bagwis taken in the same region in 1973.




Here is the start of a goodie that will be living in the House of Buzz eventually.






More soon...

great stuff Baba,
I have been wanting to do a cobra's fang mug for quite some time as it is one of the few mugs Tiki Ti had in the past. i will send you a pick of some trophy heads from PNG when i get a chance, there is one on my list to do, but would love to see you hand craft it as well. Looking very forward to seeing these pieces finished! Tops man Tops!

Simply amazing work Babalu! I missed you at Oasis(or maybe we talked for hours, cause I forgot a lot of people's names). We'll meet next year and maybe I can see some of your pieces in person.

Man, I have been wanting to do a Fang mug too forever but after someone brought it up, I knew you or someone else would beat me too it. Still, I am going to need one of those for my collection. The other PNG mug looks like it is going to turn out great too. Well, I think the vault of great mugs to come has been cracked open and the flood will begin.
