Frig, I love the manta ray. And the shrunken head and hand (didn't see the title) shows your usual knockout originality Mike.

I'm really glad you're here on TC to remind me of how fresh and original an artist can keep his work. It inspires me when the same ideas keep popping up in my head and I think that I'm out of new ones. Thanks.

MHH and nuKKe, thank you for the words of encouragement

Robb, you are too kind. I think it's a lot easier for me to keep it fresh and original, I've only been at it for a year. I can see that could be a challenge for an established artist - you want to stay true to your style but yet still do new things. A dilemma for sure.

I am experimenting with a version of the
Black Pearl Dessert. I decided to use a shell plate on the bottom instead of a cookie so I made a few simple shells. I'm afraid God gets the credit for the sculpt instead of me; I bought a Lion's Paw shell ($2 at Michael's) and used it as a form. The shell on the left has Mother of Pearl luster over the pink glaze, has a nice iridescence.

New Test Tile System - I just can't remember what "Harvest Plains" looks like. Is it lighter that "Saffron Silk". I need test tiles of all my glazes but where do you put them so they are out of the limited workspace but still readily available? Then something short-circuited in my brain and I had an idea! Round test tiles to be glued to the top of my glaze bottles. I dug through the kitchen and found a cookie cutter just the right size. I'll keep you posted.
(EDIT) I'm thinkin' a spot of silicon will stick them to the plastic lid yet be removable when it's time for a new jar)



Since I'm not "burdened" with having to make stuff to sell for Oasis , I'm working on my
Menu Art Swap piece, the Skipper Kent's Polynesian Genie. Seems to be turning out OK.




The menu art is lighted from below, but a mug usually isn't. So I'll have try to glaze highlights and shadows using 3 shade monochrome scheme. I made up a quick 6 inch "test tile" to try it out.



We'll see

Put a slight texture on one side of those test tiles - it doesn't really work if they're just flat surfaces; they don't show the transparency, pooling, or waviness of the baked glaze. You could make a stamp out of some fired clay with your initials on it to stamp & texture all of them with...

Leleliz, I keep workin' on that dessert but all of my experiments have gone awry so far

Thanks MP

Cammo, you are so right. After I took the pic last night I stamped letters into the clay. IN for the Envision glazes, CY for the Courtyard glazes, etc.

LLT - Funkee Fresh huh? Back at me That Art Swap earlybird was your idea
