If your on the list for one of these...I'm going to improve the sculpt and change the glaze to something I like better...




OMG! AWESOME!!!!!!

Kelly, darlin'...I've still got you on the table...please hold on just a little longer kiddo.

You've drawn the Tower card....

Beware, as the foundation of that comfortable life you have been building up for all these years is about to come to a drastic and sudden end. Yes, tremendous storms will gather. Lightning from the heavens will uncontrollably bear down on you. Your castle of self will burst into flame and crumble. Your shadow of a being will free fall into the depths of the unknown...everything will be lost...

You've drawn the Tower card....









I've decided to hold off on lighting a fire in that top ring. I choose to add smoke in the glaze to indicate a building internal inferno instead. I also choose to do a separate gold luster firing on the lightning bolts, and without testing how the gold will react to the heat of the flame, I would just as soon not chance it...not this close to show time anyway.

What a fun exercise this was for me combining a European theme and iconography with Polynesian culture...Get over to Hank's Gallery on Halloween night you all

Turned out great! Beautifully glazed blue "sky". Are the figures hanging from string or from wires?

Thanks Murph

Mike, those are very thin plastic coated wires that I ripped out of the center of this plastic thing-a-mah-jigger I've had laying around here. Plastic and fire don't mix either...

The dog and I are starting to find some kind of a groove together...

Rick, looks like you've reconfigured the Babalu Clay Jam Studio of Ceramic Wonderosity. I see a U-shaped workspace for increased productivity

Hey MD, I really made kind of an "S" shape with 2 work stations like the one you see in that last post....hey buddy, this is what you have got to look forward to...I wished I could say I starting playing in clay when I was two. This kid hung with me and played with clay for about an hour yesterday.



Brad...Man, you made my day...thank you! When I took that Tower down to Hank's I noticed your painting shining like a diamond there on the wall. Stunning...and priced to sell too! Someone is going to walk away with a great deal there for sure.

Still building up enough for a firing...soon.
