Clever! Our bushes are all in need of pruning too. Best wishes for all your chores to work out and your son to win his game. Just remember me when you have a bowl for sale, cheers, Wendy

Hey Wendy. What happens May 27th? Dan's birthday? I can have your bowl ready by then.

the "Skull Trader" mug is out of the kiln and looking good! I was going to call it "My little monkey Skull" after MunkTiki's new mug "My little Shrunken Head" but when Beachbumz called it the "Skull Trader" mug it stuck.

I never posted final photos of the Lava stuff I was messing with. I mixed some cinders into some slip and experimented on this Kaikaina mug. I thought the white would really set it off.


I tried some speckle Glaze on the inside.




This Kaikaina mug has some added detail and some crazy black with red glob glaze inside...

The "Skull Trader" is boxed up and off to his new home.

HEY, Beachbumz and I finally got a little kiln, so you can expect some more stuff from us. Hopefully we will be able to get our work done faster now that we have control of our firing.

Here is what I have been working on for my friend Wendy...

The Okolemaluna Bowl Tiki's are based upon a tiki in their Lounge, one they bought from the Waikiki Tiki Hut. They call him Murray.

My bowl it has three corners.
And three corners has my bowl...

Congrats on the kiln Robert, you'll really enjoy it! I made a cardstock template that is the exact size of the bottom of my kiln. Then I always know if something I'm working on will fit in there, corner to corner if it needs to. Of course I learned the hard way and made the template AFTER I made a piece too big to fit my kiln

Here is Scott (beachbumz) opening the kiln after our first glaze firing.
It's a perfect size for us.


These are the two mugs I pulled from our first firing!
I'm pretty happy with them, but it's time to start exploring new glazes, and I gotta make my next mold.

They look great Rob. Are they real shells on the necklaces, or have they been sculpted with clay and added?

Thanks Swizzle, Both shells are clay, the one on the left was made separately and glued on while the one on the right is part of the mug. If I make it separately I can get better color. The one on the right has the brown glaze airbrushed over the white I painted in the shell. I'm still trying different techniques to see what works.
