These pictures really don't do the Big Skinny Underwater Cthulu Warrior King sculpture justice, it is right out the friggin' most amazing ceramic piece I've ever seen in my life. It isn't bumpy like the photos seem to show, it's smooth and the glaze is creepy-wet looking. It's also hollow! Babs outdid himself 16 times over.

And if anybody's interested, my one-off Oki mug is based on the Original Series Star Trek Episode with Frank Gorshin: "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield". (Look it up! I dare ya!)

Thanks to Trailblazer Babalu for Showing Us the Way.

Paipo - Thanks, Man of Peace...yeah, ok, I see that. I will explain more on the carve of that log in the carving area soon. The whole grid thing (instead of drawing) is something I came up with on my own...it will either work really good, or it will fail miserably. Ya never know till ya try, right? Can't wait to get my new pendant brah...the wife is already saying it's hers...I don't think so.

Cammo - Thanks, but remind me to show you some ceramics books I have when your over next...if that sculpture mockette of mine is the best you've seen, then your in for a real treat brother.

JONESEY, JONESEY, JONESEY!!! Mucho thanks! I've got something special floating around in my brain for you Captain...it will become real soon enough.

Well, I have learned a great deal in the making of these first mugs...One thing is that it takes time to do all the steps yourself...I don't know how many of these steps the rest of you mug makers do yourself, but I can see where subbing out some of these steps might be a wise thing.

Lastly, I'm adding Jonesey, Bullet, LLT (thanks for the color choice), Vince, and La Esquina Del Tiki down for one of the Olive chop mugs at no charge...thanks for the PM's and standing behind this MOW mug so huge. That gives me about 37-40 total to do, of which I have most of done in one stage or another. Still need a little time before all of these will come out of last glaze firing. I know it says ?? of 60 on the bottom of these mugs, but I may stop it here at 40 and move on to the next mug designs, and some needed carving...will still do a few special "one offs" on these MOW's down the road??...I'm just getting kind of sick of playing with this olive one right now. We'll see?

Next year, for the "08" SD Chop Chop mug...I'll build it, but you cats get to glaze your own. I will show you how.

Peace out

I love this idea Rick. It's been a while since I've heard about anyone doing something like it. I think it will be a great draw.

We bottom-feeders love our tiki mugs. Don't we Buzzy?

I think 08 mug will be fun too Kate...Cammo said that he will make up some little cards for this Man of War mug, but I need one of you Choppers to invent the "Man of War cocktail" to put on it...The drink should be paralyzing to say the least...any ideas?

Giant Jellyfish attack Japan!

In recent years, huge numbers of Giant Monster Jellies (no kidding, from a news article) have been attacking Japanese fish nets & coastal communities! They destroy everything in their path! They're poisonous! They look creepy!

Holy Freakin' Godzilla! Check this out! - - -

Which one is the 'brown one' ? The one on the right is actually blue/black/red with a bit of purple. Maybe it looks brown?!

Despite the fact that pink and blue are my favorite colors, I actually prefer the one on the right (looks black to me) It suits the mug better too, I think.

From Reuters -
"THEY are called echizen kurage and they sound like monsters from the trashier reaches of Japanese science fiction.

They are 6ft wide and weigh 450lb (200kg), with countless poisonous tentacles, they have drifted across the void to terrorise the people of Japan. Vast armadas of the slimy horrors have cut off the country’s food supply. As soon as one is killed more appear to take its place.

Finally, the quarrelsome governments of the region are banding together to unite against the enemy. "

Holy Gamera, look at these! This is for real! They're stuck in nets!


This guy is trying to tag one! Holy Marlin Perkins!

Okay. I vote for the blue/black/red/purple one then.

Holy Gamera, indeed!

I wish I had the imagination to make this stuff up:

"As part of an ongoing battle against invading swarms of giant jellyfish in local waters, some residents of Fukui prefecture have developed a method for converting the jellyfish into powder, which is used to make souvenir cookies. The jellyfish treats, called “Ekura-chan saku-saku cookies,” are now on sale at JR Fukui station at a price of 580 yen for a box of 10.

Three years ago, students from Obama Fisheries High School in Fukui prefecture developed a method for turning the invading jellyfish into powder. (dry them, then toss them into a blender?!) A Fukui-area company followed up with a cookie recipe that includes the powdered jellyfish as an ingredient. The result is a cookie with a superbly textured sweetness nicely complemented by the bitter, salty flavor of jellyfish."

And here they are!

What a sickening end to a Gamera movie; make cute little cookies out of the jellyfish monsters, and smiling little Japanese kids eat them!

I made the labels into little cards that Babalu can sign & number inside - this is kind of a cheesy photo, but shows the idea. I think the drink came out pretty nice, kind of a Hawaiian slushie with a 4 oz. float of blackstrap rum...

you start drinking the cold slushie at the bottom and the rum slowly creeps down to the straw....
