Wendy, they are intentionally glazed 2 colors - but they are streaky. I also discovered another challenge with my design; normally the tiles are smooth in mosaic so that when you grout the cracks the excess wipes off easily. But I made the volcano tiles textured and only partially glazed - it's going to be a pain in the butt to ungrout them

I couldn't sleep at 3am so I started cutting and glueing glass tiles. Everything is glued down now except the reddish brown leaves on the left that are now back in the kiln. Next will be the lava and the grout.

Gee MDM, and here I thought you were just going to build a fire under it so the glow of it would shine up through the lava parts.... of course shipping a blazing piece of art might be a problem, but if anyone could find the solution it would be you.

Looking really awesome Mike! I am confused though... I thought you did a Pele skull thing for the swap... or am I mixed up?

MDM - fast pace brother, lookin kool

Tiger- see page 7,
Recap-
OK, this isn’t really a Swap project ~ just a little something for inspiration and entertainment. In full disclosure, this isn’t my sculpt; this skull was a quickie formed over a Halloween foam skull and then modified. MDM

It was just a MDM inspiration story to get us all thinking/started
(however I did read somewhere on google that it was a true story, MDM just doesn't want everyone to know he has the 2 real Pele skulls)

Like this Tiger?


The gaps between the tiles will be grouted black which will make the lit stained glass more dramatic. I had to give up on actual fire, apparently it's a federal crime to send burning materials in the mail - go figure! I'll need to find the right lighting effect. Unfortunately the shadow from the support bar under the table if going to mess with the effect but that couldn't be helped. If I use multiple light sources under the table it will help negate that problem, maybe a circular florescent with some sort of diffuser?

Tiger (any anyone else), you are always welcome to make more than one project and give your Swap partner a choice. I'll probably offer Pele's skull (complete with the certificate of authenticity ) as a Swap option. I may even have a smaller skull by then so they could choose the pair of skulls or the table.

Thanks for the kind words and the assist Jon.

Lookin GREAT,Mike!
and the Black grout is gonna make it PA-POW!
Have you thought about making a little ceramic votive candle holder
that you can place ATOP the table and light ?
that might be a good option instead of wracking your brain
tryin to figure out how to light it from under the table....
Just a thought...
