Okay. I'm going to start loading up the car. If I'm not there by 10 am, would someone please send an ark for me.

Rollin just got some oil for his secret sports car. Everything is GO.



Unfortunately, Cam has to get a lot of things done today, so he's kind of STOP!

Just make sure you post some pics today, and in the event you or any of your team members are caught in the rain or have their day killed off before it begins, the state department will disavow any knowledge of their existance. Good luck Mr. Phelps.

Well, it was a small gathering, but at the end of the day, we all looked around at each other and realized that we actually learned things this month.

I achieved one of my dreams which was to learn to make the Spam masubi. Mieko even sent me home with my own masubi box, so I can crank them out at my place now.

I also made some shot glasses and learned how to write using Rongo Rongo.

The guys made a silicon mold for one of Clysdalle's pieces. At the end of the day, the mold was ready and we did some resin casting.

Babalu made an obscene mask. Then somehow it ended up turning into a bird. That seems to keep happening with his stuff. Birds and bunnies.

Bowana made a very cool tiki planter, and Mieko carved small. Cammo did a drive by.

Got to chat with Bob who we first met at the PIFA show. He made some really neat little shot glasses also.

We had a quiet, mellow day. Just a bunch of people hanging out, making stuff and having pleasant and silly conversation.

This is by far one of the most enjoyable Chops we've had in a very long time.

(I didn't take any pictures 'cause I was all covered in teriyaki sauce and clay most of the day. But I know Babalu and Meiko got some.)

Kate's right, that Chop was allot of fun. Here are some pictures of yesterdays rainy Chop...

Bowana - Mold making











Meiko takes over





We also slung some mud...


Bowana shows off his latest planter...wheat grass baby!


Clysdalle sculpting shift knob out of Sculpty clay...you can fire this stuff around a metal armature in your oven.


Meiko - the master of minurature.


I call this one: Go "F" Your Self, or maybe "Love thine Self", or maybe "Dick for Brains, or maybe "Alone"...not sure?


Spoils of the day...

I'd be up for that, since it was me that suggested it! I'd even host.

Mieko, did you manage to get Bob signed up on TC?

Thanks Mieko for having the "Not" Chop at your place. Maybe we could call the event a "Clay- Squish" instead.

Thanks Babalu for bringing your clay and stuff. Let me know when you fire the kiln and I'll come by and do some glazing with ya!

Kate and Clysdalle, thanks for the laughs! Post a picture of Frankie, Dave. There's pictures of the mold-making and resin casting, but no shot of the final result.

Chopper Bob, nice to meet you. Hope you were able to get signed on to TC!

Yup, I'm pissed I missed as well. Things are sorta tight for me the first few weeks of January as I'm back working for our beautiful state, and Feb 2nd is my 36th. What say we have another chop on the last Saturday of the month?

What a great time...once of the best..if not the best! Thanks to everyone for everything. Each person seem to bring a little something special, and with a little spam it was perfect!

Here is a pic of the finished cast....I have resin coming this week so I can start to get a him out there.



I also finished up my toothy tiki clay sculpted tonight...ready for me to make ANOTHER mold! I need to get a key knife. I redid the teeth so it was less skully...now come on Kate...this is kind of leaning towards the "c" word right? I mean the word Cute for those scoring at home.
