Since Squid helped Bai carve some of the finished detail on the sculpt, does that make it a Squid/Bai Product or is it a sculpt Bai/Squid?

oh MAN!

Those mugs are AMAZING - I wanna come to a clay party at your place! Sigh... stupid pacific ocean...

So many unique pieces. May they all dry and fire safe - I can't wait till the glaze starts flying! Mahalo for sharing the photos with us.

Thanks for stopping you all! That really was a fun weekend. These OC folk really know how to kick in a Clay Jam!

Henrik - Really happy your back! I've been missing my VanTiki fix. We can't let that darn Pacific Ocean keep us from hooking up at some point. If you don't make it over to Cali, I'll make it over to play in your studio. I want to go over and visit Gecko too, that cat is pumping out some amazing stuff lately. Those bowls of his that he brought to Oasis (only got to see pictures) were just too much! Amy and I have enough miles saved up on Hawaiian Airlines for one free ticket...and yeah, no pressure on this firing huh

Hodaddy - Of course you cats can come over and play...let's work out a good time.

Grog - That was really cool watching Bai and Squid working together...it's like they are an extension of one another. Bai starts this massive project, and towards the end of the evening Squid just kind of jumps in and helps her to texture the piece...no words between them, just harmony...Much better tag team than John and Yoko ever were that's for sure. I would still have to call this one a Bai / Squid work, not a Squid / Bai work.

Sorry folks, neither Squid nor I did got's a whole lot of work done on Sunday, but we sure had a "ton" of fun shooting the bull, yaking about old travel trailers, vintage cars, art, clay, etc...I did send him home with a bunch of clay, so I would imagine that you peoples are going to see some amazing "one off" magic coming out of that guy...he's just sooo talented! The rest of you OC crew, call Squid, grab a little hunk of that clay from him, and get in on the action!

This is going to be the best kiln load I've ever fired.

GROG sculpted another piece to go in this kiln load when you fire it, Babalu.

Wow! Babalu and Amy are such great hosts. Bai and I had a total blast even though Grog was there. Next time we have a chance to wallow in clay and eat hot dogs and cookies, we are there! Buz-E, Bo Wanna and Kam-O are a major bundle-o-laughs and talent. Good to finally hang with the SD gang. As Baba said, the 2 of us didn't get a lot done but we had fun talkin' stuff! Thanks again Rick!!! Will post pix of Bai's masterpiece as it progresses.

Squid - I'll go all out and throw in some cold slaw and Twinkies to go along with those hot dogs and cookies the next time we have a hoot-a-nannie over here at Babalu Bob's...Can't wait to see where Bai takes her bird house...See ya on Sat.

Well, I finished up this little cannibal guy last night...some of my favorite elements used on him (and on that rabbit hole bowl)were pulled from this 1940's Hawaiian Trader Vics image posted in "General" a while back...











But what really made my day yesterday was finding a little surprise package on my doorstep when I got home from work. Mad Dog Mike sent me my new favorite mug! Mike has really, really come a long way with his ceramics! Building molds, buying a little kiln and firing the heck out of it, enrolling in a ceramics class at his local Communitiy College, and much more...You rock the hardest Mike! Keep that fire burning brother!

(btw, there's a lot to be said for a small kiln- I actually fired it TWICE yesterday, one bisque and one glaze. Set it to bisque at 5:30 am, then reloaded it to glaze at 7:00 pm. There was one piece that was in both firings, went from greenware to glazed in 1 day )

Wow and Wow....triple WOW. So much fun!

Nice work Babalu....the rabbit theme lives on and just keeps getting better...and weirder in a good way. So happy to finally get a good look at what you've been doing.

Can I come to the next mug making?
