Hey Mike,

Not sure where Sir B is right now...he used Amaco cone 05 Satin Underglazes and clear coated the underglaze...One firing.

Crap? Brother your work is far from crap. Your a trail blazer!

Great job BigToe, he makes me happy

Sir Bowana, I've got a question for you, maybe Babalu will answer it. I can't get over the glaze job on the Aloha Sisters. Was that done in one firing or did you glaze parts at a time? Maybe it's just my lack of a steady hand, but sometimes it seems easier to me to glaze and fire the background (for instance) of something intricate, then go back to glaze and fire the rest. Any glaze I accidentally brush on the fired background is easy to remove. Maybe I'm just lazy because I have a small kiln and don't have to wait to fill it before I fire.




I put all the colors on at once, and it was fired one time. I made use of my Robot Steam Punk Goggles to make sure the colors were brushed on exactly where I wanted them. It was like a paint-by-numbers set in 3D. You just have to be R E A L L Y careful!

I got some new glasses today to wear over my contacts for detail work (I'm at THAT age ) I guess I need to get some decent brushes now instead of the old leftovers from when my kids were little.

Well, it's been a minute since I played in the studio...I had to do the old paint the house thing. It looks better.

Cam bounced over to put some final glazing touches on what I think is going to be his best mug yet.



Me, I jumped back in the studio last night for a minute and threw this 30 lb slab out. I using a metal snow rider as a form for a large platter (there is a difference between a form and a mold). Don't ask how I ended up with a snow rider in San Diego I'm going to try a push this low fire clay a little and see how it performs....This platter is about 25 inches in diameter and will just barely fit. into my kiln. Time to get a little bigger boys. For those of you how have commissions going on with me right now, don't worry, I'm on it...just needed a little size detour to fill up this next firing, your mugs will be made for this next firing as well.





If you get a chance go over and check this thread out in Beyond Tiki.
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=30971&forum=6&2
hopefully, some of shared posts by everyone over there will inspire and help all of us out with the work we might do over here? who knows...

Do I see the great uncle of "The Three Brothers" developing? Go big or go home (wait, you are home).

Babs, it's too funny - I laid awake half the night thinking about a platter design. It too will completely fill my kiln, a whopping 11 inches!!! Working on what may be a new way of doing mosaic, more on that later.

Ok, Ok. There is WAY too much cool stuff going on in your studio

That platter is GINORMOUS! Holy smokes! You mentioned that you are using low-fire clay. Does it have a lot of grog in it? Totally inspiring! Please keep us posted as it progresses. How will you be drying it? My mind is overloaded with the idea of drying and handling such a huge piece. SO many questions! Please continue your informative postings, as they are greatly appreciated by your fellow clay pushers!

30 pounds! Damn!

You are truly the man!
Henrik

Bowana that Aloha Sisters mug makes my mouth water for a cocktail!

That glaze job is superb! Nice work on those ladies.
