Looks beautiful ZS, I think you get the award for first done. Those blues and greens would go just perfect in my tropical inspired bedroom. Plus my wife would like this in the bedroom much better than a shrunken head!

HORNBILL FACTS - Did you know that the female hornbill walls herself up in her nest for up to 4 months while raising her chicks?

Making some progress on Hornbill #3




He needs some wings, texturing, and lots of clean-up before drying

MDM - Gawd! DUDE!! Pretty freakin awesome sculpt there...I like Hornbill #3(as is) but of course want to see its wings and texturing and finished. Great stuff G

Yeah, I didn't think I was the first! Thanks for the compliments MDM! If it does end up in your bedroom, I certainly wouldn't mind one of those hornbills!

Thanks ZeroStreet.

HORNBILL FACTS - Did you know that hornbills are a symbol of purity, luck, and fidelity in many cultures?

Sometimes I amuse myself

Hornbill #3 is about done with the sculpting phase. Turns out it doesn't need much texturing - most of the body will be covered in opaque black glaze that would hide any texturing. I added some to the tail, feet, and chest. As it slowly dries I will continue to clean it up a little. Should be ready for the first firing by next week.




Here's a sketch of Hornbill #4



Same egg shaped form as Hornbill #3. I don't want to gross anyone out (well, maybe I do) but the little birdie's head will serve as a straw - you'll have to suck on his beak to drink :evil laugh:

MDM, can't wait to see that freshly hatched hornbill!

Ok, I don't want to be a pain about this but I made a few changes to the painting...but this is IT! It is done now!

Yellow Lava River!!!!

HORNBILL FACTS - Did you know that the Papuan Hornbill is found in Melanesia, including Papua New Guinea and as far East as the Solomon Islands

Speaking of Papua New Guinea hornbills, I was chasing the wrong hornbill! I thought it was the Wreathed Hornbill (Rhyticeros undulatus) that was the Pacific Bird - turns out it's the Papauan or Blyth's Hornbill (Rhyticeros plicatus). No biggie, same body and nose shape, different coloring

I started today on Hornbill #4


That is NOT a fuse for a hornbill Molotov cocktail! It will burn out during firing to leave a straw channel The egg will be dry by tomorrow night but the chick head is thick and will take a while.

I love the egg - reminded me of one my favorite dragons I've collected:




But you can't drink out of this guy!

HORNBILL FACTS - Did you know that the San Diego Zoo has hatched more than 520 hornbill chicks in it's breeding program?

OK slackers, I know we've got 'til September 20th but there's no need to PROCRASTINATE

Hornbill #3 (the cartoon looking mug) is cooling in the kiln right now with lots of bright colors. If all goes well I will post finished pictures tomorrow morning.

Started Hornbill #5 today, the pitcher. I've never done anything this big before but I'm having fun. I am desperately trying make sure it will fit in my kiln for the bisque firing Since my kiln is wider than it is tall, I plan to lay it down to bisque fire it but I won't be able to glaze fire it - I'll have to cajole Babalu into doing that for me.





The hornbill beak (pouring spout) will stick out of the top of the knot hole, the rest of the knot hole will be a wall of "sticks" and "mud"
