Thank you, thank you, and thank you. TC peeps say the nicest things

LilTikiChef, so glad you like it. Thank you for being patient with me.
BeadTiki, you wouldn't like that "refreshing drink" - it's just CranRaspberry juice with no rum! I needed something dark for the picture to hide the flower and at 8am it was too early to crack open a Pepsi

I made a pictoral tutorial of a slab formed mug for a friend, this is the mug I used. It's only quasi-Tiki as it's simian but has no fez. Not anything fancy or especially creative, just something to take photos of as I made it. I named him "Want Coffee NOW!" because he reminds me how some people look before their morning coffee It will hold about 30 ounces.

Thanks all. The ape coffee mug is in the kiln right now.

I finally found inspiration for
GROG's Moai Madness Show I thought that the top knots on Moais looked a lot like a drunk partier with a lampshade on his head I sculpted it solid and gave it a 45 degree twist toward Tahiti. Cutting it in half and hollowing it out was a bit of a sphincter puckerer for me, I've only done that once before. Put a real mini lampshade on his head and got some cleanup to do as it dries, hope to get it done by the July 10th deadline.





Not a very flattering Moai depiction, hope I don't get excommunicated from TC

Cheers, Wendy

Thanks Robert
littlegiles, I will admit I looked like that once - but only once and I swore that I would never do that again!
Wendy, OK - here's what's next;

I have always been fascinated with the
Vintage Jade Tiles and come up with a few ideas to use that image. This is a prototype jade tile drink coaster.




It's about 4 3/4 inches square. The jute twine wrapped around the sides is to keep the drink from sliding off the glazed tile surface and the cork on the bottom protect the table and absorbs any condensation. This one was just a quickie, it's not really symetrical. I put shellac on the twine, hoping to protect it and keep it tied. Experimenting to see how to cut the cork and what glue will stick the best. If I can get it all worked out I might make a mold so I can make a few sets.

PS - BeadTiki, don't get excited - it's mango soda with a little Maraschino cherry juice
