Is it possible that these mugs keep on mugs keep on getting better and better.
I am so in love with the white/green/blue glazing -- amazing.

And, of course, congrats on the gran-baby and baby-cat.

These are very interesting Babalu...creative designs and great execution. I think my
favorites are the two headed one...and the bird...love the colors on all of them.
Did you ever finish the tiki holding the skull?

Those are looking great, Rick. I'm liking the glazes a lot!

I can see the lid already beginning to morph into a bunny. Won't be long now.

Wow - they look great! As I scroll though the closeups, it's just "Oo, that's my favorite" "no wait, that's my favorite". I love how the detail came out on the swap one, I like the way Cammo glazed the top one, almost messy. I *really* like the blue/green with red spots, the darker multicolored came out well, and the olive colored one came out great! I really like that one too. And great photos too!!
Do we get to see them all at Oasis?

Babalu!
Incredible! They get better and better every test run! Of course, the olive one is my fave! They ALL turned out SPECTACULAR!
You have created a very beautiful and unique mug! KUDOS!

Babalu, that red and green glaze on the Man-O-War is absolutely amazing!!! What do I have to do to get one in those colors?

Cheeky, Thank you so much for the feed back. It makes me feel good when people like what I've done.

Hey Brother Conga, Thanks man. No, I never did finish that one carving...it ended up having rotten wood at the core and bottom area which made completing the feet next to impossible. I must admit, I kind of lost interest in it after that...I could still try to save it in some fashion I guess.

Cam...Of course that one is yours. I still want to trick out an Oki or two dude!

Bowana...Watch out folks! TikiDav, I mean "Bowana" is going to be doing mugs in my studio too! This cat has da mad skills! Look for some killa work to come. It's great fun to have Bowana over to the shop, and playing. Bowana, you should post pictures of those 2 pieces you fired over at my place last week. I thought they turned out great! Post-um on this thread if you want to?

Mieko, Real sorry I missed your party sister...my daughter came out from Denver to visit last weekend. Thanks for the comps. I can try to throw some of the MoW's in a box and bring them to Oasis...not sure where I will put them, but I will figure it out.

Paipo and LLT...thanks so much for the nice words guys! That means a great deal to me coming from 2 artists who's work I concider to be some of the very best on TC. You guys are top shelf in my book!

Frostiki...Frosty...I love that name. Got it, do more blue ones. Huge thanks for the comment. It really helps.

Hey La Esquina Del Tiki,

Yes, I will be selling a few of these to help fund another FUN Chop of some kind, and also help to pay for materials, and power used on this little project. I think that LLT green one has to be in the line up of colors for sure. I've gotten some other good glaze ideas from Jonesey that I want to try. I picked the run number of 60 on these from...well, I really just pulled that number out of the air. I have about 30 free ones to hand out to San Diego Choppers first, and then I will build the other 30 to sell. The 9 successful one's I've glazed so far will be part of that total 60...I have about 15 or so to bisque now, and I cast about one a day due to the nasty other job I have. So it may be a little while before all 60 are done. I also like the several head, or custom head idea...so you may see some more of that happen besides this 60, but not that many more. After 60 of these, I am sure this design will start getting on my nerves anyway, and I will want to move on. These 2 part mugs are fairly labor intensive, as each has quite a bit of extra texture added after they are pulled from the mold, so really, no two are exactly alike, also I'm using several different glazes on them which also takes more time. I'm thinking $60. each. Please PM me if your interested...I will make final glaze choices soon, maybe 3 different types, and yep that green one will be one of them....then lets do a blue one and a brown one too. Please, no money first folks, just a color choice...I will do the money thing when I am ready to ship.

Thanks again!

Thanks for the props Kaha Ki'l....and yeah, absolutely man. Tell you what...if you can carve the word "Babalu" in a visible area somewhere on that most righteous work of art that I'm getting from you, I will toss one of these mugs in.

Since you threw out the invite, here ya go!



This piece has been on TC before, but this is it glazed properly instead of primered with Krylon. I'm having trouble getting photos of this piece that I like, so this is it for now. I'm going to attempt tp take some better shots and post them on my own neglected thread.

Now I am done derailing your thread....................Thanks Babaluuuuuuu!!

Another firing....more goodies.




Sir Bowana rules!


Cammo glazed up several, but this "one off" is my favorite.


One of my weird time traveling friends wanted me to do this "one off" sculpture for him.



I also fired this 22 inch high hand built mockette, and made this to scale wire grid, to act as a guide...Carving on this 5+ foot log soon...this will be continued on my thread over in carving. It is soooo time to carve again!

Awesome stuff Babalu...it's great to see plenty more people are going to enjoy one of these fine ceramics. Speaking of which, shouldn't that custom "mug" have a matching "Man of Peace" badge on the back ?
How does the wire grid thing work in practical terms? I understand why, but not how....
