There is just SO MUCH to learn about clay. Why can't I just suddenly acquire Babalu's years of knowledge and experience? I've been doing this for almost 2 years now, I thought I would be a master by now! (just kidding of course)

Well, here's my Zombie Village Pupu Platter II (the first one cracked in the kiln). On the first one, I had used an underglaze pencil for the girl. It turned out OK but the lines were a little coarse, I wanted them finer. This time I burnished the plate when it was almost dry to make it smoother so the lines could be finer. Unfortunately, the plate was too smooth - it had no "tooth" and the underplaze pencil just barely made a mark on it! I ended up using watered down underglaze and a small brush to paint the scene. It turned out looking old and faded - I had considered using a clear crackle glaze to complete the vintage look but then it wouldn't be food-safe.

Terrific MadDog, great idea. It looks like an old vintage platter. Wendy

As opposed to a NEW vintage platter? LOL I'm just KIDDING Wendy! It's like the LIVE GIRLS signs at XXX joints. You know - as opposed to DEAD girls? Sheesh!

Mike - You're the best!

Kinny, Wendy, Beady, Zero-y - THANK YOU

Eric, I did try lighting a fire in my tiki torch platter - it immediately started making popping and cracking noises that scared me so I chickened out and doused the flame. I think an alcohol flame heats too quickly for ceramic

Yep, Jason - you inspired me to make the mamms. But it doesn't go with my Late Century Evangelical Prude decor so I found a sucker to give it to. My wife wouldn't let me hang it on the wall next to her Thomas Kincaid Scripture Plate collection Imagine that!

I was deeply honored to be included in the
Squid Fresh Pork Virtual Luau Pig Show. I must admit I was a little nervous when I saw the lineup of esteemed artists but I had a great time with it. I even tried my hand at creative writing - no cheating; you have to read the story before viewing the pig

It was dark and troubled times on the MadDog Mike farm. A dry Spring had blazed through to a hot and parched Summer. The corn and hay had wilted in the fields and now animal feed was scarce. Farmer MadDog knew that soon the livestock would have to go, but how to decide which would go first? Not Jack, his early morning crowing alarm clock. Not How Now the brown cow with her milk or Bo Peep with her warm wool. And surely not Mud Pie the pig!

Since there was no harvest, MadDog had plenty of free time on his hands and had taken to reading to while away the long hours. On his last trip to town, he had picked up Frankenstein at the library. Now he read by lamplight to escape his agonizing dilemma.

Suddenly, the burdened farmer sat bolt upright in his chair – he had an idea! He picked up the lantern, grabbed his Winchester and the sharpest knife from the kitchen then slugged down the last of the moonshine to fortify himself for what needed to be done. If only he could combine the attributes of all the animals together, there would only be one mouth to feed! He would create…
FRANKENPIG!!!
