Two Cherries RULES! This is a sticker you can actually buy, I think it's like $2.98.

Cool sticker, man.......enough to make any rockabilly douchebag want to become a carver.


On the reed boat? What do guys want to do if it seriously dumps? I still want to carve, if anyone down here wants to........just need a dry spot.

Nice....How many people you think we can fit into Buzzy's living room?

We can probably get 3 in the kitchen if we move his collection of empty plastic Pepsi bottles outside.

That was my first thought.

That's a fabulous idea. We could just stay inside and play with clay all day. Anybody want to offer up their living room?

Look, I'm probably not coming to this chop, (busy busy boy) but here's my 2 cents =

I've always thought it would be cool to simply make some hand-thrown mugs at a chop. Just build 'em up and use regular (clay)tools to get a carved tiki look. For a few bucks each Babalu could fire the lot and y'all could glaze them at the next Choppo. Presto bingo, a one of a kind personal mug.

These don't have to be seriously detailed mugs, something real simple would work fine. I've got some glazes to splatter on, etc.

Hot-diggity! That's a sweet idea! What a great contingency plan for a rainy day! I would love to get my son involved in clay and with all the talent you folks have to offer I'm sure he'll completely dig it! (Am I hiding my own personal enthusiasm well enough?) I hope this is something everyone else is game for!

I don't have a ton of room, but I can host. We should be able to have 6-8 people working on stuff in the dining room - either clay or small carvings. No power tools, no big stuff, and I don't have any clay - but if someone can bring some, I'll find a tablecloth that we can work on.

Who can make it and does anyone have clay?

Well you all know me...I'm always in the mood to play with clay

Realistically, my studio would be the best place for us to do this; I'm all set up for us, but unfortunately (like Billy) I've got family members who are sick as well :-( I mean sick - sick, I was sick as a dog myself, and couch bound all last week. So Meiko, if your sure??, I am up for it...clay does get messy you know.

Clay: I don't have enough to go around right now, but I might be able to jump down to Freeform Ceramics at lunch and pick us up some cone 4, white body, low fire clay. This type of clay will handle all those colorful glazes you all crave. I will have to
un-bag it tonight and let it sit out as it is normally very soft. It can be harder to sculpt with than that cone 6 clay we played with at that one Chop at Bill's house.

So, chime in everyone who can do this. I will need to know how much clay to get. Sorry you can't make it Billy...next time brother.

Sounds like fun, I'll pitch some money in for clay if Babs can get some.

I'd say 9:30am would be a good time for me. I'll probably bring in the folding table so we can hose it down later. Or we might work in the garage if it's not too cold out there.
