Rum painting... brilliant! But no one would complain if you included a frame... made out of lime wedges!

Moondoggie, glad to see you're in - great rum painting!

As far as my mug... "I am troubled on every side, yet not distressed; I am perplexed, but not in despair"



For some reason, the walls on this casting we not as thick as the last one and the stress of the heavy wet clay on the head was too much for the thin walls. I'm out of casting slip and a little frustrated - so I'll Sharpie some notes on the side of that mold and put it away for another time. But don't cry for me - life is GREAT and I'll get over this. In fact, I already am

Bummer that the mug didn't make it the 2nd go around...

how many art swaps do they do each year? does another start up after this one ends?

just curious...

peace,
Jason <><

Mike could you save it if you made it as a statue and not a mug? Shorten the arm and attach the hand and head to the base? Melt the extra clay and patch it and finish up with baking and glazing. It doesn't have to be a mug for this swap. You can do it, I know it, Wendy

Mike - sorry to see the re-occurring clay disasters with your headhunter mug! I know how frustrating that can be. Sometimes the clay gods are with you, and sometimes they curse you!

On that note I just pressed START on the kiln for the final glaze firing of my frames shrunken faces. All 10 fingers are firmly crossed, and I'll report the good/bad news tomorrow morning when the kiln cools.

Mahalo -
Henrik

Thanks guys

Jason, there is no set schedule for the Art Swaps. Last year we had two, both expertly facilitated by Hewey.

Wendy, too late - I already PITCHED it. I really like the concept and I know I can make it work, I'll take a break from it and try again later

Believe it or not - my framed face is nearly done! All that is left to do is find a frame for it. Here he is:



Can't believe I got it done in time! Whew!

6 more days and then we Trade! It's bitter sweet with MadDogMike's piece missing but there's always next time if Hewey will keep this going.
So much fun art, Henrik he's so sad his head shrunk. Wendy
