WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!!!

LittleGiles, when it gets closer to done I will PM you for your address

Not really tiki, but it would be at home in any tiki garden. I think the stone look of the saggar firing would work out well on this if I can make it happen. I'm heading out of town 'til this afternoon, I'll post some better pics when I get back

Thanks again Mike. My birthday was this past Friday so this makes a great surprise.

Happy Birthday to Giles...

Thank you to those who played along and even thanks to the 400 people who looked but didn't take a guess



The candle is behind the mug, seen in a clay "tunnel" through the mug. I think the mug will hold enough to share so I put 2 straw holes in the lid. 10 inches tall and 7 inches wide. I'll let it dry slowly and continue to burnish the clay, do a bisque fire, glaze the inside and do a glaze fire, paint and sprinkle chemicals on it for a saggar fire, then wax the outside to provide some protection and enhance the colors

I had said that this was only "quasi-tiki". However, 40 years ago I worked at
El Tiki, a Polynesian/Mexican fusion restaurant and this palm lantern was on the grounds ~ that makes it tiki to me

Mike, that is soooo cool! Thanks for the birthday wishes and I can't wait to see how this turns out. It will hold a place of honor in my "soon to be redone" tiki office/hobby room.

40 years ago I worked at El Tiki

So what kind of a place hires a 2 year old?

Swizz, you'll get to see a real Tiki restaurant in 2 weeks. I haven't seen the Bali Hai since the remodel but I hear it's very nice. But I can't guarantee a Japanese Lantern in the garden there.
Wendy, you always say the nicest things
ATP, you'll have to find your own chicken dinner. Now get off my lawn!
H10T, you'll have to remember that child labor laws were much more lax in the 70s. And it was actually only 38 years ago.
Nui'umi'umi, Thank you. Don't worry, I've been "sick" for a long time and there is no cure!

I got Bryan's Kamehameha Bowl fired and I'm happy with it. I think Bryan would be too. The brown on the faces is a bit streaky though. Because I wasn't firing in my own kiln, I took a gamble and did 2 firings instead of 3 or 4 ~ I lost It would be difficult to correct now


I made a pair of Sea Monkey salt & pepper shakers for the friend of a friend. He doesn't want to see the finished product until I give them to him at Oasis. But I don't think he's on TC so hopefully it's safe to post them here.

The Lantern Mug in firing in the kiln as we speak (up to 1895 right now, needs another 40 degrees or so). Hopefully my toxic chemicals will arrive this week so I can get into the laboratory and start testing

Loving that Kamehameha Bowl,the glaze choices were perfect for it... Beautiful!!
I think that Lantern is going to look great with those toXic chemicals, can't wait to see it. Damn I wish I was going to Oasis!!

MDM, as much as I'd like to say something smart-alecky, I got nothing. You do nice work and it's fun to see the constant creativity.
