Thanks! The hardest part of the glaze was painting all the little Z's - then intentionally dirtying them up and wiping away some of them for the rustic aged look. I was tempted to keep the Z's pristine, but it looks better this way.

While I'm finishing up the Solomon mugs (I should have #2 and #3 done next week), I thought I'd sketch up my next mug design...



This one has a giant god clasping a volcano and sucking out the lava. Perhaps he's thirsty, or maybe he's saving the small village below. The entire top would come off as a lid. There will be a place to stick a straw so it would reach to the bottom of the volcano. I roughed in PNG spirit protector, but I haven't decided which specific Oceanic figure to use yet. Should keep me busy.

Love the Solomon mug - especially the eyes. And you made me curious about the new design - looking forward seeing it in clay.

Hi Beez!

I just found this thread and have to congratulate you on doing the incredibly difficult job of "ga-jillion part mold-making!" Solomon is wonderful...

I bet the volcano guy is gonna take a "ga-jillion plus more" part mold. Good Luck; I can't wait to see it!

Stop by the store some Sunday and say Hi. I'd love to meet you... AND Solomon!

Ha-ha...yes, the new mug will necessitate way too many mold parts. I've been studying up on figure casting, so I have some ideas on how to pull it off. However, I'll probably make some more sketches before throwing the clay around.

I do need to drop by your place, Tiki Lee (especially since we share the world's best name - Lee!). Sometime soon...

The mug sold fast. You can see pix in the "Sold" section. Otherwise, I just added Solomon #3 to the Etsy site.

Here's another Volcano Sipper sketch...



The figure is based on an Easter Island protector that was made from tapa and bullrushes and kept near the door to ward off bad spirits.

Rough sculpt. it's a two-hand mug - you have to use two hands on the base to pick it up.
