Kiki - Thank you. My wife won't even let me carve bone in the house with a Dremel because of the stench, I can't imagine burning it on the stove!!!!

Kenny, so impressed that you replied twice? Thank you, Thank you

Perry - "I've been there, Mike. it's quite impressive"
So I am the only one who hasn't been there! And she's only 90 miles away!

Buzzy - Tiki-Kate was telling me about that. Now I feel better that Rietveld ripped off the design that I ripped off from him. Thank you BigBro.
"However,I think I put the long faced guy on the left" - Damnit Jim!!! I can't believe I screwed that up! At least you were able to recognize which one was which. If you were a real friend you would go to Amy's and switch them around to save me from being embarrassed!

I finished the sculpt on Amy's mug and it survived firing, now I'm starting to glaze it. Because I have a tiny kiln, it's cheap to operate - I often glaze fire complicated pieces in stages. If I accidentally get glaze on an area that's already glazed and fired, I can wipe it off before I fire it again. (Did that make sense? )

Her Highness Queen Kamehameha and I are doing a Low Desert Art Swap I'm making a mug to represent her backyard and she's going to carve me one of her awesome canoe pendants.







We've got Buzzy's two big guys in front (in the wrong positions ) and his drummers in the eaves. Bamboo Ben's thatched roof, Lauhala panels, and "W" shaped bamboo bar. We've even got a waterfall and some Koi.

Still need the hanging red fishing float. I couldn't find an appropriate sized clear red bead so I'm trying to cast one from epoxy

7"H x 7"W x 8"D, holds about 20 ounces.

EDIT - I didn't want to bump this mug again, I've already gotten too many kind compliments for it But here's a picture of the finished product

Great mug! I think Ben might be on to something... interlocking diorama mugs! C'mon, we know you can do it.

Mike, that Amy mug is Amazing!
You've started a whole new class with
these diorama mugs! Love the way you did the
pond with the fish and all the details.
THAT'S AMAZING!

Wow! MDM you are THE diorama mug maker.

Let me say that your Queen K bar/hut mug is stupendous. I can't wait to see your next project in this format...

...but there's a natural MDM mug just itch-in' to be made - a mug with your "nice young man" image on one side and the "then he found TC" image on the other. How many self-portrait mugs have ever been made by a mug artist? If you ever attempt this idea Mike, I'll gladly swap/trade a nice TikiG painting for it (hint hint!)

Thanks for sharing Mike.

Thank you all so very much! This one was great fun, I don't know about "interlocking diorama mugs" though I do have at least one other idea I want to try with this epoxy "water" trick.

TikiG, hmmm - a "mug" mug? Not quite sure why anyone other than my mother would want a mug with my ugly face on it

Zaya, I hope Buzz is healing well - I'm sure he's going crazy!

I'm trying to get Amy's mug finished so I can send it out to her but I'm having trouble with the hanging Fishing Float.

Attempt 1 - FAILED! I used a 1.25 inch superball. Clear with a nice frosted finish, won't bang against the mug like a glass marble would but it's too big - it blocks Buzzy's drummers


Attempt 2 - FAILED! I poured red epoxy into a 1 inch glass Christmas ornament. After the epoxy set I tried to break the glass off, the glass is stuck to the epoxy like Angelina Jolie lip-locked to a plate glass window!!!

Attempt 3 - FAILED! I repeated Attempt 3 but used some mold release inside the glass ball, still stuck.

Attempt 4 - In Progress. I'm using latex mold builder around a Christmas ornament (good thing those ornaments came in a pack of 12). Once I get enough layer of latex, I'll try to peel the mold off and use that. We'll see.
