I think I'm going to do another bisque (in the morning) before I do another glaze firing



Ahhh, scratch that ...I needed to make these extra test trees for that next firing. I will do the bisque firing in a day or so. Glaze fire shortly after.



Clysdalle is jumping into action....nice!



Eric the Red too...this will be a fun one to glaze Eric.



Buzzard...good job Buzzard! He will fire out fine.

Rick, here's what you need for your Hona Bowl. It's pronounced ka-wa-ma for you non-Spanish speakers, pick it up at your local Henry's.

Little late on this one Billy...next one. You can come over and glaze anytime. Call.

Well, Got a few all glazed up and done...there was also a couple that need to be re-fired. Dang, It takes about as long to post these images as it does to build the darn mugs...here we go...

I wanted to glaze this #1 Cobra Fang Mug kind of conservatively...simple, more like the menu image. I took the part I least liked about the original mugs design, the fangs, and emphasized them...after all, the cocktail is called a "Cobra's Fang". This guy did develop a couple of small hairline cracks on the inside in dry out that don't go to the outside, and one rather nasty one on the bottom that did go through, however, all the cracks, including the one on the bottom glazed shut and it seems to hold liquid fine. Lucky.











Of my mugs in this firing, I think this little Cannibal Bunny turned out to be my favorite. Image heavy...sorry.















Lookie here!! Kinny has his 1st hand built mug done....He even signed it "LLT #1 Mug"...This ought to make some Kinny collector a very happy person The images are a little dark - sorry LLT.









GROG, You no longer have to carry that raw hide covered gourd around...now you can step out in style!!







Lastly, I think this Lapatiki #1 (based off my first Lapatiki carving) turned out purdy good. The matt finish juxtaposed to the gloss worked out on this one.







Well, that's it for this mini firing. Thanks for looking.

Great stuff! I still love Grig's stone Moai texture. Rick, is your cobra a plumber? 'Cuz he sure is showing a lot of crack! Glad to hear that the glaze sealed it, that would have been a good candidate for some calcined clay and glaze.

Cannibunny is just the kind of thing that's pushing the boundaries of TIKI from kitch to fine art. Really amazing work!

Liana, Cass, Squid, Thomas, Grog, Mad Doggie, Sir Bowie, LLT, thanks so much for bouncing in and keeping this thread so fun....Brad, what a wonderful thing to say - thank you.

I have to rush out the door to work, but I though you all might want to see an image of the bisque firing I pulled out of the kiln on Sunday....Everything fired out nicely.
