I hear LLT's bringing donuts!


perhaps you misunderstood Bo...
YOU'RE bringing the DONUTS!
Squid and I will be bringing this lovely
ColdCut Platter!



MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!




Okay, I'll bring the donuts, but who's going to bring the doughnuts?

That cold cut platter looks scrumdillyicious!

PS Don't be sad, Lee!

Had a blastyesterday Babs. Thanks for all your hospitalty and teaching.

GROG very happy with GROG' WHIL, and can't wait to see GROG' Moai Mug fired. Everybody is doing some awesome stuff there at your place; you can always tell in artist's pieces when they really had fun doing the piece.

Squid definitely went to the head of the class this time.

Grog Whil:

(but I think he means "WEEL")



Smashing time yesterday, thanks Babalu. Hadda head home early to carve pumpkins, etc.

Will bring my Beatles "Love" CD next time, and try to find a DVD copy of "Dad, Can I Borrow The Car", which I think Squid will like....

CLAY JAMS IN DA HOUSE!!

Yup...what a day yesterday! Squid, LLT, GROG, Sir B, Cammo, Buzzy, Babalu....The air was charged all around the studio. You cats ROCK the hardest!



Unfortunately, Buzzy was only in for a moment...all dazed up on chairs...he only stayed long enough to steal a can of something? He mumbled something about stain, and POOF! Just like that he was gone. WE missed you Buzz.



Kinny is always the life of the party...hands down. I think Simon (my dog) likes him better than he does Buzzy now. Kinny was a glazing fool, and later in the day, he and I busted out our first collaboration piece....SMOKIN PUPPIES! its all about smokin puppies brother.









Cammo is the man!...the dude brought a pumpkin pie! Thanks for bringing the tunes too Cammo...You got's more energy than thunder brother.





Sir B was, as always, was in his old calculated robot gear of GO!...glazed 3 pieces...carving on another...Jeez my friend, you is sure one talented individual.



The bird dropped in for a howdy doo...got his hands a little muddy.



GROG....Folk's look at this mug...GROG you are also one truly talented person. This is really one damn fine mug! Your a natural brother...









But in the end, the day belonged to Master Squid....he just started out carving up this wonderful Luau Pig...yes, ladies and gentlemen, a Polynesian porker. That was all good and fine, but what threw it over the top...what set him apart today from all the rest of us was the bacon swizzle stick he made for this bad boy...I wished I would have taken more pictures of this guy. I think Daves at home right now carving a riot helmet for him





Me, I cheated...I worked on mine a little bit more today...













I see you cats snuck some $$ in my sketch book...thanks gents, but that was really not needed...in my sketch book it will stay till you guys come back. We are having the best order out pizza in town the next time...It will be much better than coffee, hotdogs, chips with fire dip, and cotton candy cookies.

I am just amazed with everything that has been posted on this thread - I've been following along for some time now. Tiki mugs in Australia are few and far between and for a while now I've been thinking about making my own, but just never thought I could pull it off as I have no experience with clay (Okay I lie, I DID make a devil mask in year 8 out of clay..it is still standing the test of time =P).. This thread in particular and the other 'how to' thread by Babalu and Bowana really kicked me into gear.. also seeing all you guys making really sweet mugs on your first go, made me think 'Hey, maybe I can do this!'.. so thanks =D The stuff that I've seen on this thread are some of the best works of art that I've seen.. EVER! It's really inspiring for me, and I'm half a world away! =D

I will be watching this thread intently for more great things coming from the Babalu studios =P


Liana.

Liana, I concur with Little Lost Tiki - you should give it a try. I also agree that there has been much amazing artwork on Babalu's threads. Plus, many useful pointers. There was enough information for me to start slipcasting.

I love the textured rock look GROG got with his "whil" and mug. I'll have to give that a try sometime.

Liana, I'm another Babalu clay convert - I studied his thread and got everything I needed to slipcast my first mug. GO FOR IT!!! Then ask around and find someone local who can help you with firing and glazing.

A big old Mahalo to Babalu and Mrs. Babalu. That was extremely fun and I have no problem with the Babalu MREs. Quite tasty! Everyone really did jam it up.

Rick has inspired us all and for those that have been checking into this madness, I say do it!

My Polynesian Porker is all finished and drying as we speak. I'm ready for a bacon Mai-Tai!

Love it Squid! You know we have a Polynesian food restaurant literally 2 mins drive from us and my favourite thing to eat there are the Pork buns.. This mug just makes me hungry

Oh and thanks for the encouragment guys! I'll be buying supplies today, and sorting out a kiln. Just wondering, what would be the best kind of clay to use for hand made one off's? I figured I'd do alot of hand made stuff to practice sculpture before I started slip casting
