Now to get the thread back on track from Cammo's derailment.

GROG talk to Squidster today, and it sound like you guys were busy little beavers this week. GROG look forward to seeing some of the fruits of your mudslinging this week Babs.

Got a new plug and GROG roommate put it on the kiln so it will fit the 220 outlet in the garage, so maybe we'll fire that puppy up this week.

CLAY CAMP!!!

This is what it's all about right here Squidly drove down, and posted up downstairs for the whole week...we busted some ass this last week! We drove hard...we had fun...we talked art, and made art from sun up to well past dark each day...we got a crap load of production stuff knocked out for Oasis...more importantly, we got all insane! And Sir B didn't miss out. He and Maria were able to go nuts with us a couple of good nights there.

Where to start...

Ok, my Yipawan Drum Mug...I have most of the "30" that I am doing of this mug cast, cleaned up, drying and waiting for the first firing. We were able to get one good firing out this week with some really "great" test trees made of different glazes. I think this mug will begin to look even better as firings progress. As Sir Squid can attest, this mug is a nightmare to clean up...mucho time. But hey, it's all good...still, Squid heard me say that I hated this mug on more than one occasion this week.

There has been a ton of interest in this guy. Thank you to all that have pm'ed me. If you brought a Babalu work last year at any point, you are at the top of my list for one of these guys. Just let me know if your interested. The rest will be offered up at Oasis first...These mugs will be $75.00 each...I'm making 30 - that's it. After those 30 come out, I'm taking a hammer to the mold.











Sir B, has made the "BEST" wahine mug I have ever seen...bar none!!! Proof right here -











SQUID - the man! the legend!



I made up a couple of Drum forms for Squidly...he joined them together and was off to the races. He designed, and then the sculpt was taken to completion in one night, and a few hours in a morning. It don't get much better than this here. Masterpiece. (ps: squid - it's drying out great so far)









PIGGIES ruled the week! It all started with an LLT and Squidy colab (below) and then I picked one up, then Squid picked one up...then we just had to make a Pig Yipper. I also started a little Bumper Car Pig. I had to wrap it - I'll finish it, and post laters on...Sir B took one home the other night as well - going to get all "DAVE" on it I'm sure - Look out TC! Altered Piggies are VOGUE!!! I see a possible show?























YAY!

Hey, Sir Grog, Clarita, LLT, Robb, Sir Notch, Slacks, JoneSey, Cammo, and Hodaddy thanks for bouncing in. You "ALL" rule!!!

Cammo is designing the little cards for both this Yip Mug and also the Cobra Fang mug I'm doing - They look GREAT! Cammo also took one of the Yippers home (#6) and glazed him up - he sure is purdy

Hank - there are some suprizes for your first Gallery Show - I didn't post - as I said, suprize buddy

I want to throw in a plug for the bird who has turned the "Big 2" today - Happy B-Day my little Birdie...eMpa loves you!



This is what a worked in Studio looks like - GAWD I love it!!!



Thanks for a fun time Master Squid!

Camp Babalu is the bestest! (Bowana forged his permission slip. He's such a ruiner!!) Arriving to a fridge stocked with overly-caffeinated beverages was just the first treat. Learning ceramic techniques from the master was icing on the cake. Oh, and we had cake, and hot dogs and sang camp songs!!! Thanks Rick, Amy and Simon the Wonder Dog for your hospitality.

Babs, are you mixing up this glaze yourself? I swear I will make something out of clay, JUST to use it!
That glaze is what I want my tikis to look like!

Dav's Shaken not Stirred mugs also have a killer glaze, very vintage lookin.

Squid, I'm sure the plan is for that drum to be functional. How you gonna attach the skin? Did you put holes or a groove around the top after these pics? That thing is looking great already!

And is that Ruzic/Squid Pig going to be molded? I want it!!!

Yo 4wd! Thanks. I'm going to glue the head down like a dumbek or darbouka. Wish me luck!!!

Sorry, no production plans for the Sqruzic pig and it looks like he's sold already. Perhaps I can get Kinny to whoop on another lil porker.....

Wow....You sure had some fun!!!
Everything looks awesome and the glazes are really really really nice!!!

Squid....The Doumbek or Darbuka oughta sound really nice and kinda strangely deep for that type of drum. It Is huge and awesome, cant wait to see it finished. It would be cool to make a recording of it being played and post on here for us to hear!!!

I'll see if Marty Lush can record and post samples when it's done. Feet were cut out after the pics were taken to allow the drum to resonate and project. I don't even know if it will make a good hand drum. Might be better with mallets. Cross yer fingers!!!
