I was actually trying to start my next mug at Babalu's, but those sketches pulled me in and we both ended up painting the night away.

That turtle bowl is amazing up close, it's a freakin' life size turtle. It looks PERFECT. If you put it next to a pond it would try to crawl in.

And man, what a bowl for . . . .

Grab up some brushes boys...we had a successful bisque firing!

Bai and Squids piece still needs to come back from OC; theirs, and Bowana's Holy Grail are going in the next buisque, which will happen soon.



Sir B, Cammo, and I had some fun yesterday...



Cammo's start on his 999 mug...





Sir B starts a board toten' babe mug...3 boards, 3 babes will encircle the mug. Don't forget to put the beauty mark above that one babes lip there Sir B.





Started one similar to my sketch, but not...saving the sketch mug for next weekend.





Mad Doggie, I know your practicing coiling right now in class...these mugs on the top of this bowl, that I worked on a little yesterday, are coil built and paddled into shape.



That's it for now...peace.

Congrats on the successful firing, everything looks great! I'm trying a new glaze firing technique today - I forgot to turn my manual control from high to low when I started my kiln this morning. Went 2 1/2 hours on high with the lid propped open before I discovered my error. What a dork!!! Looks like everything is OK.

Babs, what a great looking group or work in that bisque-fire pic! It'll be fun to see where everyone goes with the glazing.

I like that new mug you started, very Marquesan, or is it PNG? Nice and earthy/primitive.

I love this thread.

What type of clay are you using? and how do you get you finished mugs off the 2 inch pipes?

Babalu, AtomicTonytiki, and Bowana rule. They're freaky talented. My secret is that Bowana does all my sculpting. SHHHH!

Hey Tony, you gotta come hang out in Babalu's garage.

I shall make Babalu's garage one of my "must visit" destinations on my next time around the world. But by then I suspect that the continuing fountain of creative tiki mana will have turned Babalu's garage into "Babalu's Bespoke Tiki Ceramics Factory".

Until then I'm defiantly signing up for the next term of ceramics evening glasses in January.

Mad Dog - Don't burn your house down brother. That kiln can be your best friend, but it also has the potential to be your worst nightmare. Fire = Very Hot.

Hey Wheeler, thanks for stopping in...that one mug, and both of those sketches I did are heavily influenced by some drums at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco. When I saw them on this thread below, they just screamed out to become mug reality....I wanted to follow the original design, but I also wanted to throw in a little Babalu as well...we'll see where it goes. Man, I've really got to get up to San Francisco and see these in person.

Any time Thomas...

Hey Atomic Tony, Love your work! Thanks for bouncing in...Those slab built mugs around that PVC pipe are just one easy way to roll up a little slab canvas for folks to work on...there are many ways one could go about doing the same thing I guess. I wrap the pipe with a piece of paper before rolling the slab around it; that way I can remove the pipe easily and the just pull out the paper after the pipe has been removed. Having the pipe in there is kind of nice as it gives you a hard surface behind the clay which makes it easier to work with.

Sir B...you have to start letting Cammo make his own mugs! DONUTS!!!

Cammo - You really have to start giving yourself more credit. You really are a fine sculptor...your two mugs you have done over here are some of my favorites. Your crazy, but your a genius!

Not a lot to report for the next few days...It's time to glaze a butt load of test trees...I've got about 130 some odd little tests to do...
