I'm trying to resurrect an old 1800s design. Because of the air pocket in the tail, this "glug mug" gurgles when you drink from it.



I don't want to replicate this one, I want to make a new design but I'm having problems with it, not sure I have the artistic mojo to pull it off

Thanks for the faith and encouragement folks. I have temporarily scapped the mermaid project. It was to be a mug for a small event but they moved the event forward and I didn't have time to finish Just as well, I wasn't satisfied with the way it was going so I will start over one of these days

Mike, What happened to using styrofoam that shrinks when you bake the clay? This is a fun project you should still go for it. Wendy

Wendy, I ended up using that polymer clay technique on my hornbill skull. I can't say the skull is a master piece but the technique worked well

I have made some kiln plugs for various TC kiln owners and just made one for Wendy (danlovestikis). The last few I have made, I tried to make them somehow representative to the recipient. So this plug is based on a painting Wendy did for the Birds of the Pacific Swap.




I made a mug of a werewolf hand holding a severed vampire head for GROG's Halloween Show but I wasn't happy with the way it turned out so I put it on e-Bay. There's a link in Marketplace to the e-Bay listing.



And I started work on a Samoan Flying Fox (fruit bat) goblet. I haven't quite figured out what I'm doing with it, thinking about sgraffito with Samoan tattoo designs. The base is from a dollar store wine glass (stole that idea from Gogo ). We'll see what happens.

Thank you Wendy and Lance.

I finished my Samoan Flying Fox goblet but I jacked it up! I put gloss glaze on the inside and satin glaze on the inside - but I put the satin glaze on too thick and it came out milky The concept was good, but the execution didn't turn out too well - maybe I'll try again when I run out of other ideas

I used underglaze while the clay was still wet and incised the designs into the clay (sgrafitto), the designs came from Samoan War clubs
