The honu platter came out of the kiln today and looks pretty good. I didn't get a chance to snap a pick. I touched up some of the background and it looks better. It's not solid but more consistant and I'm pleased with that. The turtle however, isn't as shiny as it was (???) so I'm going to give it a couple of coats of clear on Monday and get it back into the kiln next week for the last time and then it's getting photographed, wrapped in bubble wrap and boxed up. I swear!

I kinda wish I was keeping it!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Inspiration struck. I don't want to reveal anything until it's done, but I scrapped the print, and am 95% done with a....CREATURES OF THE SOUTH PACIFIC WEAPON!

I'm really excited, and will post pictures as soon as it's done!

EDIT: I have no patience, here's a preview of the handle, pre-stain.

Hale, that looks great!

Okay, we're getting down to the wire. I went to the studio today, knowing that the kiln was fired. I get there, see a few of my other pieces fired.... but not the 2nd swap piece. Somehow it never got loaded into the kiln (it's been sitting there waiting for weeks now). Hopefully it will get fired in the next 48 hours, which is truly down to the fire. (Another push for the powers trying to get my own kiln). Posting pics of some of my other stuff in another thread.

Sweet Hale! And Tikiano, I feel your pain. I walked into the art room and the kiln was on. I didn't know the teacher was firing today, otherwise I would have put a couple of clear coats on the turtle on Friday. So I checked to make sure he's going to fire again before the end of the week and started glazing. I'll be down to the wire too!

Done!

I'm pretty happy with them. They turned out just as I'd hoped.



Here's close-ups:





I like how the backs look, too. Here's the back of the mermaid mug:



Anyway, I can stop sweating the deadline, now.

Sticking a fork in it. Calling it done. I might add some little bits just prior to packing it up though. Can't leave well enough alone. Sorry for the crappy picture. I hope to take a better one before it goes to it's new home. Where will it go? At this point I don't know. Exciting. After a 4 hour paint freak out I'm enjoying a wind down rum. Eldorado 12yr. Mmmmm. Then bed.

Getting down to the wire and such cool art coming in. Hale, I have a handful of Polynesian weapons on my Lanai. Can't wait to see what you have come up with. Trader Tom, I have to agree with you ~ those glazes turned out cool. Don't you love it when a plan comes together? Tabu, I just love that painting. In about 4 or 5 days you will know who it goes to

ATTENTION ALL PERSONNEL!
We agreed at the beginning of this Swap that it would be a secret swap, that you would not know what you were getting until it showed up on your doorstep. If you are participating in the Swap (will have your piece finished by 2/28), please PM me your mailing address. After the draw, I will forward your address to the person shipping to you and will send you the name and address of the person you will be shipping to. I plan to do the draw sometime on Friday 3/1 and start sending out address shortly after. I have my 3 year old grandson overnight Friday and Saturday and most of the day Sunday, that may slow me down just a LITTLE Also, if I don't get addresses from you that will delay me.

Thanks
Mike

Really hate to say this, especially after i pushed for an extension and all the great pieces but ...



I'm gonna have to drop out. Looks like i'm getting laid off at the end of the week. I can't afford to pay attention so $30 to outfit the clock and ship it is just too much
