Thanks Wendy and hang10tiki. Great hearing your feedback.

bavtech - Thanks! I'm really glad you like my work. I will let you know first thing when I finish these up and have a few to sell. I love making them and would like to sell some in the future.

I'll post more pictures as they get closer.

Some Trophy head designs I am playing with. Not completely satisfied with this first batch but I think the direction they could go might be interesting. I want to see how the glazes work out on these four before I play with this look some more.





The backs of the trophy head designs have a turtle on them. I have patterned an ocean navigational compass design on the turtle shells. All meaningful imagery for me but I won't bore you with my personal mumbo jumbo.

Thanks Bavtech! Thanks Mad Dog Mike!

Greatly appreciate the support.

I think I am going to post these Dark Clay Lava King mugs up for sale on the Marketplace today. Need to buy some more clay so I can make some more work.

I took some better pictures of them that I will put with the marketplace post as well.

Thanks Wendy!

Well, I went to a local Tiki Bar last night.

"Adrift" - Located around 1st and Broadway in Denver Colorado.

I'm not really qualified to give a detailed Tiki review so I'll just say that I enjoyed myself and the service was great.
I'm told they have a really nice patio but I was there during a thunderstorm so I'll have to check the patio out some other time.

Thought I would share some pictures of the inside decor.

Well, it has been awhile since my last post, but that does not mean I have not been making stuff. Here are a few wheel thrown and hand glazed Pineapple design tiki cups.
