Thanks LLT!
So glad you liked it!

Hi Tigerlilly,
Yes! It's going to be really fun.
There will be some never before seen
photos of Bettie Page from Bunny Yeager.
She literally found them in her closet
last week!

Hope you can make it!

Hi Big Toe,
Thanks so much, yes I was so relieved
that one survived. I'm sure it's because I
didn't wait long enough for it to dry.
Hope to see you tonight!
xo,
Claudy

Aloha!
Here is a couple of shots of our pieces finished, framed
and ready for tonight. After the heartbreak of losing
her big buxom Bettie, Claudette dusted herself off and
pulled together a couple of rhinestone beauties. What a trooper!
Link from frame fetish, who did my frames, then made custom
ones for Claudette from her designs. He is amazing!
Look forward to tonight and hopefully seeing some tiki folks
there!

Love the matting job on the velvets

and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the 2 paintings 17 & 18!

PLEASE tell me they are for sale or that you will be making prints.

The FLUFF feel transfers so well over to the cartoon-esque Betties.

LuLa,

Sorry to hear about your Betty exploding...that was some DAMN fine work. Maybe try candling the kiln a little longer. I feel it's all in how you reach that first 200 degrees in the kiln that makes the difference. Seg 1 - 50 degrees to 180 - hold 10 to 12 hours - keep lid propped open. This seems to help me quite a bit when firing a piece that has very different thicknesses.

Hope you do more of these. Very nice indeed!

That was TOTALLY sweet! I think I enjoyed the spanking machine a bit too much...( Those Bettie Nurses had a great bedside manner....). Lots of interesting people...Kinda like SF Folsom Street Fair "Lite".
That piece with Jane Weidlin and the bananna......ahhh.....tastey......Finished the night off with a rather potent Mint Julep at Pig n' Whistle.
