Just yesterday I was looking at the Show of Hands thread and saw the trophy head you were working on last August, I was wondering what ever became of it - now I know. PERFECTION!

Those heads are GREAT! Love the texture and proportions - so creepy! Keep the updates coming - what are the glaze plans for those guys? And a belated Happy Birthday!

Some action shots from the last couple of nights:

Babalu plays some head games:



Tonight, he flipped...



the bowl.
He started by marking where the center of it was:


Then he tore the plastic away from the edge


he covered it with a board and applied the special flip grip



It all came down to this one critical moment...

The FLIP!


It made it!


When I left, he was making the back all fancy.

Buzzy Out!

Our local Mountain Biking Club is having a Pancake benefit... Maybe you give us a hand.

Seriously - cool pictures. Its nice to see the process in all of its glory (or on the other hand - disaster).

Wow, huge thanks to all you nice folks...Sir B, GROG, the Jab, Thomas, Hil, Kaimuki, Aloha, LLT, Ravs, Tiki King, Mad Doggie, Van the Man, and Clarita....and thanks master Buzz for posting those shots

Okay boys, I have to take a road trip for the other worky place so here's the firing schedule...Going to try to get a quick glaze firing done this weekend on a few thingys so if you have anything bring it by...the big dry out will take place from now until April 5th or 6th on the rest of this stuff....We are then going to do a long first firing. I'm going to candle the kiln for a long time as I fear some air might be trapped under those fishies...After that, its full tilt glazing sessions as we want to get our work back in the kiln by no later than the 8th...Tonga show is on the 11th...
