Did you get your kiln fixed yet? Are the tiki tiles for your table just air dried in that last pic?


Jason, the tiles are just air dry in the last pic. My Kiln Sitter Tube has been replaced but I can't seem to get it adjusted yet, it keeps overfiring. I did manage to get the table tiles bisque fired though, I got enough stuff to fire every day for a week as soon as I get back running.

Love the lamp, but that table is awesome! Do ya think it'll fit in one of those Flat Rate Priority Mail boxes?


No, I don't think so it weighs a ton. Made out of pure Leverite - as in leave her right where she is!

The lamp is done, "Mermaid and Moai by Moonlight" That was a fun project to occupy my time while my kiln was down.




I needed a bowl to go in our newly redecorated guest bathroom and wanted to do a three-legged tiki bowl. Now, first of all, who was the genius who invented the 3 legged bowl? A 4 legged bowl (or chair, table, etc) always has one leg shorter than the other 3 and it wobbles. But a 3 legged bowl doesn't, now THAT'S GENIUS!!! Seems like every kind of Polynesian sculpture figure has been made into a 3 legged bowl but I wanted something original (I hope) So I used the head of the Marquesas U'u war club. I made a little pushmold to make the legs so I can make another if I want. The bowl portion will have a Khaki colored opaque glaze to match the bathroom, the opaque glaze would cover any surface decorations, but if I make another I can cover the bowl with Marquesan designs.



Still needs some clean-up and will take a while to slowly dry because the club heads are so thick.

Bead, I took your advice and put some roasting forks within easy reach


Still have a little grout touch-up and clean-up to do.

Excellent job on the tile table top Mike!
More of that is in order. Was the Jaguar piece
used in a similar fashion?

I feel honored! That table looks out of this world! You did SUCH a great job on those tiles - it was worth the wait. I'm glad you got your kiln operational again - it's such a drag trying to fill your time with "other" projects due to technical difficulties! I got working on my bead tapestry again - my dad cracked the whip on me this time. I'll post a pic in a while - I want to get a bit more done before I take a photo and send it out.

Oooooh - I like that new bowl you're doing. Nice carving! Got a color in mind?

What cut little lamp - how long did it take to learn to net? I just netted my first float yesterday but I don't know how to finish the top. Got any suggestions?
