WOW...the level of stuff pumping out down there is just kick ass! I'm not going to be able to skip many more of these. Great stuff guys...the San Diego Art Collective is born! Looks like we might be moving in a month down the street but at first glance the power box is accessible so I hope to get our kiln up and blazing too!

Mind-blowing/numbing stuff! I like how far outside the norm some of this stuff goes.

Babs! Love all your rabbit inspired pieces especially that scorpion bowl. Wow! really wonderful stuff.

Sorry you can't make the carve on the twenty eighth but it seems you have your hands full. I don't understand the situation, but I wish the best for you & yours...

What's a good time for squishing? My last clay class was twenty four years ago!

You bet you got's to get down here Clysdalle!

Rob - Very honored that you like the work that is happening around on this thread. I'm really pleased with everyone's stuff...lot's of energy around here lately.

Hank - Sounds like the 18th might be the big day to sling a little clay. Thanks for asking about Breydan (the Bird - my grandson), he underwent a pretty hardcore surgery today to open up the sutures on his skull...everything went well. Lot's of recovery to get through. He will be fine.

Hey Rev. B, It was great kickin' it with you at Kona...thanks for bouncing in man...Your words make me want to go out in the studio and work.

Conga - There has been lot's happening...my minds moving to fast for my hands to keep up with lately; I had to start a sketch book (Fish Bowl) again...this quick mug image was influenced by a museum image that I found here on TC.



Here's tonight's update on the Hona Bowl...I hope to glaze the bowl to the top of this guy...He will be a whole turtle in the end - hollowed to be about 1/4 inch thick all over. I would like to make this guy so that he can hang on a wall as well as to be able sit functional on a flat surface.



Little shop secret: For many years, while hollowing out sculptures that I do...I always put a little prayer or saying written on the inside before I close them back up to the world. This is the only time I will ever show this being done...typically, the only way one can find out what's on the inside of one of my sculptures is to break it open...It just turned out to be a good day today, so I thought I would share this.



Thanks for visiting.

hahaha, that's great rick. i built a rocket once that had a hidden message on one of the centering rings in the motor mount. it said, "if you can read this, we crashed". it was a high power, nitrous-oxide rocket. went about 10,000 feet the first time we flew it. then the message came out. oh, well.

i love your new stuff, man. you're really taking your mind to a new place. remember, i've seen all your older pieces that kind of show the inner you. most people won't know what a crazy place that is.

keep it up. one of these days i'll make it back to lemon grove and push some clay with you.

Rick, I knew Breyden's surgery had to be coming up, just wasn't sure exactly when. Glad to hear everything went well, we've been thinking about him.

The mud all looks great, the internal prayers are awesome! 1500 years from now someone will find the broken Honu Bowl and say "What the heck is this message about and who is "the bird"?"

The Hona Bowl is turning out beautifully- I can't get over how natural and effortless your shapes feel, though I don't doubt the amount of work that goes into them. Gads.

Babalu,
Thank you for the update on your grandson. I am very happy to hear the surgery went well and hope for a speedy recovery time. Your tribute/guardian Honu shell bowl is beautiful and I imagine will be a momento he will hold onto for the rest of his life.
Please keep us updated on his recovery and your plans for a clay day in October.

Hey Babalu!
It was nice to see you (briefly) at Kona for the Squid/Tikiyaki event!

Your new work is fantastic! Can't wait to see the Hona Bowl finished.

WOW! What incredible gathering of talent you had at your studio! Looks like you guys had a great time creating some amazing art... are the artists coming back to glaze the pieces too? Would like to see the final pieces.

Maybe you could turn that into an annual event... I'm sure there are lots of TCers who'd love to tale a crack at sculpting a tiki mug! (although there are probably TOO many, making it logistically prohibitive)
