Melvin the Drunken Moai came out of the first glaze firing with several glaze skips on the inside. After the second glaze firing he had just one tiny glaze skip so he's going back in again tonite. Hopefully tomorrow he'll be perfect

Im working on having some affordable pieces at the show this weekend!!
Kon Tiki Table Top Moai(Resin moai with hand built Kon Tiki Raft)
I Believe this is how the Moai reached the mainland!!

Primitive Moai head carved from lava rock...this was my first attempt at carving lava so I kept it real simple.. I got a shard of lava in my eye and cut up my hands and feet(note don't carve lava rock barefoot and without gloves or safety glasses).So this may be the only one!


I will also have a few of my fire stencil moai


A handful of moai tiki pendants and hopefuly a new wood moaisaic!!
see ya there!!

----Artists ----set up is 2:30--3:30. Show starts at 4 when the Tonga Hut opens.

Hang your own art. There's netting on the wall if you just want to bring S hooks, otherwise bring a hammer and nails. We have some lights (Thanks dibroc) but bring more in case you need it and an extension chord in case you need it also. Better to have it and not need it then to need it and not have it. GROG will have shelving for mugs and small 3D stuff.

Bring a card for your artwork with Title of piece, medium, artists name and price if you're selling it. Contact info on back of the card if you leave the artwork hanging up at the Tonga Hut for a couple of weeks or so. Artists sell your own art, so bring your own change.

Don't bring more than 1 other person (spouse or significant other) with you to hang stuff. (But invite plenty of others to come.)

Kelly will be preparing the bar for the event, so she will not be making any drinks until the bar is open at 4.

----And to anybody else who's coming,---- there's rumor that one of the artists( thanks Tobor) will be bringing some delicious Kalua pork there to eat, so if anybody wants to bring a side dish of some sort, you're more than welcome.

Oh no, my tar ball moai melted in the sun yesterday and my driftwood in the shape of a moai was thrown in the beach fire by some cove dweller!

Oh, I guess I'll have a new painting!

The kiln is cooling down. Hopefully we've got a good bunch of stuff that survived the firing. Dr.Trader Tom made it back from France in time to bring his jet-legged butt over and glaze some Duncan Moais, and he even has a couple of hand-made mugs. One of Tobunga's hand-made bowls lost his head in the bisque fire, but the Rapa Nui Island bowl made it through fine.

GROG looking forward to seeing everybody's stuff, but especially to eating some delicious Kalua pork. Yum.

GROG wish GROG was drinking alcohol, because GROG would have one of each of Kelly's drinks. May have to cheat and have a taste here and there (just don't tell GROG' doctor.)

Se ya'll at the Tonga Hut.
