Babalu, answering all the comments on this thread could be a full time job for you! I don't plan on attending the NCECA, it's too hard for me to get out of town. On the IMPOSSIBLE chance that my kiln plug makes it to the top ten, I MIGHT consider it

Bowana, I think that Sculpty is an unappreciated art media. I love the translucency that you can't get from any other media (maybe high fired porcelain?), makes great faux stones like jade, carnelian, malachite, ivory, abalone, etc. You can sculpt it before it hardens or tool it after, you can 2000 grit wet-sand it to a mirror finish. It doesn't shrink when it cures. It's readily available in lots of colors and fairly inexpensive. I also like it for quick projects because it's done in 20 minutes and I'm an impatient kinda guy (ceramics is trying to teach me patience)

All true Maddog, but for small figurative work it SUCKS!

Babalouie's instruction and inspiration have driven me to stay up late and MAKE STUFF! Unrestrained from the chains of sculpting for production cast ceramics, I have seen the error of my ways and now repent wholeheartedly. Here ya go Baba... It's your fault!

It's a mug with a huge lid, based on a PNG Elema body mask. About 15.25" tall!!! Guess I should've been more specific. I was way too excited and just wanted to post it.

That's huge! Looks like the lid is big enough to be a mug in its own right (or maybe a 151 repository for some creative flame effects).

I think up different mug ideas all day long and was thinking about the snake mug and another one Babs did intensely just before he did them. Now one I saw the other day in the Book of Tiki and thought it would make a good wine type bottle and Squid did it. And beautifully I must say. Its cool to see these ideas actually come to life.

TEAkey, I was having the same problem - seems like we are channeling all of our great ideas to the Babalu School of Exceptional Artists and they get all the glory. Well, I for one, HAVE HAD ENOUGH!!! I have started wearing an aluminum foil hat anytime I think about mug designs. That way my ideas stay trapped in my head instead of leaking into the Great Tiki Mug Cosmic Awareness where Babs and his cronies sift them out with Kumeyaay Dream Catchers.

DYAM SQUID!! That is one heck of a mug!! Man, you is soooo on a roll! This one is going to be fun to glaze.

Keep-um coming brother. You have 25.5 inches of height in my kiln to play with.
Kinny, gave me the piggy today, he looks killa too. I think I'm going to do another buisque (in the morning) before I do another glaze firing

Happy, happy, happy as Ben would say

HALLELUJAH and AMEN to that, brother! It's a hard habit to kick.

Nice piece, Squid.
