The Jab! Buzzard! Both you cats popped out some great work! Wonderful first mugs guys...more, more!

Here's a little PNG Xmas ornament I made at the Chop yesterday. He was sculpted solid then cut in half, hollowed out, then the half's were re-attached. Sorry, like in most of my work, there is so many different angles and under cuts on this guy...there's no way it could ever be molded. Lots of angles = lots of pics...Cross your fingers, I'm going to force dry this guy...somebody hand me a hair dryer!

BABS!! The mugs look great, but that BOWL looks fantastic! Let me know when's a good time to cruise by. Ran into Amy at the grocery store. Really makes you feel all homey when you run into good folks while you're shopping.

Hey Babalu, thanks for having me over and feeding me today. Starvation day is now pushed back until Thursday!

I got one more mug ready for drying shelf now:

I pulled this one out of an old San Diego Tiki Factory mold that my friend got for me at the estate sale a while back. This particular mold was from a very rare sample mug that the rep used to take around to new accounts to show them the quality of the manufacturer's product. The mold was dated 1971, and a check of the old production sheets show that this sample was produced in very limited numbers from 1971 to 1974
Front

Back

Bottom

The BZ-1T and SDTF are from the original mold. I put Buzzy 08 on it so the recast will not be confused with the vintage originals, if one should ever surface.

They stamped them all with this, just in case a restaurant tried to sell the samples:

"For promotional use only not for resale"

Hope you're feeling better tomorrow.
Buzzy Out!

Rick, the PNG ornament is outstanding! What colors will you splash on it?

Buzzy, it is so cool that someone cares enough about the past to preserve, promote, and protect these vintage molds. I vote we name you Ceramics Curator of the year

Hey Billy, I took the liberty of glazing that one little part you had left to do on your 2nd mug here...hope you don't mind...he's in a glaze fire now.

Thanks a ton for checking in with us Hewey. More soon

Buzzy...folks look at this bottom shelf here. I predict that there are going to be more than a few hand made ceramic Buzzy Xmas ornaments / pendants / rearview mirror dangler thingys available for this Xmas. We bisque fire this load tomorrow night.



Mike, there are a few little skeleton pile guys of yours here...I will fire them for ya.

Kinny, I put our little mug back in for a 2nd firing...tomorrow night man.

Bowana, Can you make out one of your babe's arms? Your staring into one of the peep holes in my kiln...1634 degrees and climbing.

Thanks, Babs.....I was actually going to ask you if you could do that for me. I'm stoked on the eye-ball mug....I really thought that red was going to run!

GLAZING!! ARRRG!!!!


I used underglazes on this mug, 2-3 coats. This is what underglazes look like before firing. Not too spectacular.


After that, a clear gloss overcoat is needed (another 2 coats) This particular glaze is a very fitting pink.
Even less spectacular now.




And here's the results! Yay! I was glazing for days, but I've finally got a finished piece!

Bowana-fo-fona!
