That's right! I am in fact subhuman. Nice Duk! Great job on the feathers. Dayam Squid!

Babs, love the Cobra mug! The color combination worked out nicely. Buzzy's did too and has held up well, being that he had to use his time machine to go back to 1969.

Look at those custom plates from MaddogMike! Wow! Whatta guy! It's Christmas at Babalu's!

Thanks BigToe, and thanks again Babalu for sharing the ceramics world with us!

Hey Bowana! I made that mug from an old SDTF BZ-2 mold from 1969 that my friend picked up for me recently at an estate sale. The lady he got it from told him her mother had a ceramics shop in Lemon Grove for 40 years, and made all kinds of custom ceramic stuff over the years. I scratched on the "2008" and the "1/1" to differentiate my reissues from the originals that were available at the Chop House from 1969 to 1974.

I went to Babalu's studio today to pick up some clay and borrow some tools so I could do some homework tonight.
I made a pair of these:


I think this one will be a pendant:

and this one will be a pen holder, if the screw on pen holder part fits it right. If not, it's a pendant too.

I put them on simulated lava backgrounds because I like Coco Joe's

I hollowed them out on the backs so they will dry more evenly and hopefully not crack. That's what Babalu taught me.

Thanks for loaning me the tools Babalu! And I regret to inform you that Ringo the Ruiner chewed up your wooden tool. I'm sorry...

Buzzy Out!

More homework tonight...

I started out with another one of these:




Then I made a Maoritini glass:

It's made from three pieces stuck together

Here it is upside down to appear rightside up:

It will support itself rightside up, but I want it to dry straight so I have it supported upside down overnight.

Buzzy Out!

More homework:

I started out tonight with another practice piece. I went and got a few clay tools today and tried them out on this guy:

It's pretty thin and I hope the head doesn't snap off


Then I made another Maoritini glass:

This one has the same figure back to back:



Make room on the drying shelf...

Buzzy Out!

With a drink holder like that, Buzz James Buzz will be the envy of all at the next international spy cocktail party!

Today's warm up project was this "lava" textured guy:


Then I made another Maoritini glass:



I used the same tiki as I did on the first one, but this one I did the tiki back to back like the one I did yesterday:


I also worked on this pendant in between the various stages of the martini glass construction


I ran out of time and energy today so these guys will have to wait until tomorrow:




GoTiki: Okay, I'll let you know.thanks.

It takes more than being extremely handsome, having some fancy sock holders, and owning a flying carpet to be the envy of all...it will take having that that glass in his hand too!

Even completely naked, Buzz James Buzz still has it ALL!

Rick, we ATE our way through New York City, everything from cannoli to knish, from hot nuts to hot dogs. Had a great time! Picked up some mug inspiration in the Oceania section of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Bowana, those plates are nothing grand - I just threw 10 minutes worth of glaze on some dollar store plates and fired'em

Buzzy, looks like you're going to take the Prolific Clay Artist of the Year Award. You're goin' through the clay like castor oil through a goose (so to speak) Lookin' good!

I finished this pendant...

as well as this one last night:

One of the arms broke off so I glued it back on. I hope it holds. It might be too thin to survive.

I finally ran out of clay making this today:

It's my inspired version of a bucket mug crossed with one of those bowls with the three tikis holding it up

It matches one of the martini glasses I just made

It's a small sized mug. If I had more clay right now I'd slap out a lava version of it, and then do a wood version of it too. Instead, I'm going to go take a nap.

I'll get more clay tomorrow.
Buzzy Out!
