I was thinking it was a new hat for Rory.

Of coarse you and C'Al would have to shrink

his head at Primitive to make it fit!

Good stuff MDM!!!

Awesome Mike! That is one tiny little shrunken head...that thing could fit in a martini!
Love the story and the art, so great to see you still producing. If this is a self portrait, do I want to know what the orange eyes indicate?

Thanks guys, love you all! Tiger, it looks to me like a self-portrait. The eyes are a little more orange than the amber/brown I was shooting for but he makes me smile.

It may be a little while before I post here again. I have several mosaic projects to work on, some Christmas presents. My Quetzal mosaic is almost done, working on a Baltimore Ravens mosaic table and a 3x6 foot community art mosaic of a 1913 car race. I bought a concrete bench mold and I'm working on a concrete and ceramic fall leaf bench, a garden gnome bench, and maybe a mermaid bench. None of those are tiki so I won't post them here but maybe I'll post a link to them I'll be back to more tiki project soon enough.

Sir Artist MadDogMike, I absolutely love your work and genius imagination!

I've got some catching up to do.

If you want to wish MadDogMike well and smile at the same time check out his post on the Ohana page. Heal fast we want more art from those hands, Wendy

OK, Wendy's calling me out

I bought a concrete bench mold and I'm making ceramic pieces to embed into the concrete to make custom benches for Christmas gifts.



A couple of the benches are not tiki related (fall leaves and lawn gnomes) so I haven't posted any pictures, but this one will have a Hawaiian couple. I need to make some sort of name plate to put the couple's names on, maybe I'll sneak a tiki in. The Hawaiian guy is 3 pieces, total of about 10 or 11 inches tall and 3/8 thick. The gal is 2 pieces (I pilfered the designs off the interweb, the only thing I can draw is flies)



If it looks like those pieces are in the sink under water, that's because they are Underglazes fire to a dull finish, it's hard to tell if you got good coverage until you put the clear glaze on top and fire it again. Then it's too late to fix any errors. But if you put them in water, you can see any places that need to be touched up. In this case I can see that the shell necklace on the guy needs to be outlined so it shows up better and the flower & lei on the girl need more pizzaz.

I also finished up a Baltimore Ravens mosaic table top this weekend, my first mosaic table top. It was a pratice piece for a tiki table top I want to do later

A great project you've got going there, the under water test is pure genius. Smart and talented, you got it going on my friend!

Wait... you have to drown your work in order to put it into fire? Something ain't right here.

Cool stuff Mike doggy I dig it. Can't wait to see more progress.
