Here's a monkey coffee mug I'm working on (ssshhh, it's a Christmas gift for my sister-in-law) Made from 3 different high-fire clay bodies; dark brown WC373, yellow-tan Soldate 60, and white Coleman procelain. I plan to only clear glaze it so the natural colors of the clay show. I've got access to a high fire kiln this semester, figured I might as well take advantage of it.

(yes the teeth are sculpted in reverse - concave rather than convex. I messed around with that and I think I like it)

OK, I thought you guys were my friends...how come no one told me this hat was ugly?


I guess it's my own fault, I bought a cheap $5 hat because I didn't want to ruin a good one This hat must look 3 times better 'cuz I paid 3 times more for it

Cue the
"Enzyte" theme song

I set out last night to make a Kamapua'a (wild boar god) mug but I overestimated the scale a wee bit and now I've created a MONSTER!



Looks like it will hold 2 or 3 quarts! I guess it's a Kamapua'a bowl instead of a mug Slabformed from dark brown high fire clay with porcelain tusks, I still have detail work to do on it. It will shrink 15% when I highfire it, hopefully it will shrink down to a manageable size.

The boar's head is a swell idea* and well executed. It really doesn't look like it needs detail added.

I'd drop the handle. It detracts from the design and is possibly not gonna be functional (unless yuh carefully figgered out the balance). But more importantly it'd look much cooler liftin' the boar's head with two hands to drink outta it.


*This is where the smarty pants point out alla boar's head mugs I ain't aware of.

Mad Doggie!!

You are sooo turning and burning!!

I agree with Kinny that the Monkey handle ears are epic...I also agree with woofy...loose the boar handle on this one, or the next. The boar in and of it's self looks tight!

See ya tomorrow man.

i will chime in on the handle, think it should go, call it a bowl if it seems too large. nice work man! have fun glazing the hair, looks like you will be checkin your glaze passes over with a fine toothed eyeball. Look forward to seeing it done.

Bowana, LLT, Liana, Woofie, Babs, Cass, & Gogo - thanks for the dose of "Rah! Rah! Rah!"

Woof, Babalu & Cass thanks so much for the "constructive criticism". I decided you are right, that handle really wouldn't be functional and there was no "drinkable edge" (I was going to use a straw). I whacked the handle off and doubled the thickness of the ears since they will end up being de facto handles, now there's a "drinkable edge" on the back of the head. Cass, glaze shouldn't be too bad, I'll do a black wash and a clear glaze so the color of the clay shows. The Kamapua'a kiln plug I did (page 5) was a "test tile".

Thanks again all.

Lil Lost Tiki once posted "Inspiration is free, spread it around". When something I make is inspired by a creation posted on TC, I like to give that artist credit. This, however, is not "inspired by" but rather "ripped off from" Go Tiki and posted with his permission. I needed a slab-formed project for my ceramics class and thought Gogo had a good idea. I poured a plaster bat in the bottom of a big basket then rolled a slab of clay over it to give it basket texture. Gogo slipcasted his and they have a lot more detail, you can find them here

NICE boar head, I'm not suggesting anything cause it's probably already dry! I suggested a few changes to Little Lost Tiki's work at the recent Chop and he just about dumped a jar of india ink on my head.

Anyway, love the clay color, the white tusks, etc. The kiln plug you sent Babs is killah, AND the new hat! You may actually out-Tiki-Guy Buzzy.
