Ditto Jon: Wow.....

Look forward to see how you're going to glaze it. Great details and concept!

The bowl has been bisqued. Been avoiding glazing but we'll probably have a firing next week so I gotta get on it. The other one is still underwraps and hopefully not too dry.


But i did squeeze in another mug. I think it'll be about 6.5-7 inches (20 oz?) after firing.
I call it 'Grin Twins'. Same face both sides with a little tapa in between.

Well, the mug is done, need to get picks>ebay.

Also, the bowls: The first bowl is being fired tomorrow (well, later today...), it was a pain to glaze and I hope it comes out well. It has got me rethinking how to do it better (one step will be using my black clay for the center cone thus avoiding one glaze- even if just a slip).
The tentacles, hard to paint glaze on...

The second bowl has been recycled. Just too much going on and I get bored doing the same thing too much (yes even tiki stuff ). I kept it for awhile but it eventually got too dry.

But in a few days bowl #1 will be done and at very least will be something to think on how I want to proceed. At very best it will turn out awesome. So much anxiety in clay.


Got a new jar in progress. This is black clay (now it's dark red, after fire it will be black and slightly metallic - tons of iron)... had some issues with glazes shivering on this clay so he'll be raw. It's a beautiful clay body though (currently doing tests with more feldspar so it'll work with glazes).

about 3 hours carving, base details in. Now mostly fine details and cutting lid left. He's about 7-8 inches tall.

Was he sleeping on the ground? He's got leaves stuck to his back. Nice job, BaddAss Tikis.
