That's a nice haul Mauitiki. GROG mug honored to be amongst such great mugs. It was really nice meeting you, too. Hope you can make it to Oasis again next year.


There some things that not make it to Oasis--- some Java Bobs that need their glaze fixed, and a couple of bowls that need some glaze fixing, too. GROG got some orders from people, so PM GROG if you want something and GROG put you on list, but it all has to be poured, cleaned, fired, glazed, and fired again before it ready. There only one Tiki Bob shot mold, so GROG can only pour about three a day, and then GROG also have to have enough stuff made to fill the kiln enough to make it cost effective to do a firing. So, in other words----if you order something now like Bob Shots or Bob S&Ps, they probably won't be ready for a month or so. Ceramics are definitely not an "instant gratification" type of art. There's also plenty of steps along the way to a finished product, so plenty of opportunity for things to go wrong.

GROG pouring greenware like crazy to get all the orders filled, but only one Bob Shot mold makes it a bit slow going. You can only pour a few a day. You have to let your mold dry out between pours, or it degrades faster and you get fewer pieces out of it before it becomes unusable. GROG try and make a few more plaster molds today, but it takes a week for them to dry out before you can start using them to cast pieces.

Here's the main problem with some of the glazing on the Java Bobs. Runny Mascara eyes, and runny type. GROG has remedied the problem, and no longer has the problem when glazing Bob Shots, but GROG still have to go in and fix the Java Bobs.



GROG has had several people ask about the two bowls that didn't make it to Oasis. GROG took them with GROG to ceramic place where GROG get supplies, and they help GROG figure out what GROG doing wrong, so hopefully GROG not have this problem anymore in the future.

Glaze chipping off on the first bowl, and glaze "crawling" on the second. The second bowl already has the glaze touchups on the bowl, so you can't really see the prblem, but you can see where the problem was. Hopefully with some glaze touch ups and refiring these guys can be salvaged, too.

OK, glazing mugs looks like a big pain-in-the-ass.

It IS a pain in the ass, but most of the troubles are from GROG' inexperience as ceramicist and firing (first time to own a kiln and fire GROG own stuff). But, GROG learning as GROG go and should have fewer and fewer glaze problems. (knock on wood)

Everybody who order GROG' crap, thanks for your patience. Here photographic evidence GROG working to get those orders filled.





Made a few more Bob Shot molds, so GROG can pour more greenware per day.
They need a couple more days of drying before GROG can start pouring them.
