Man, everyone is really delivering the goods this year! Beautiful works all around! And now, my humble addition...

Thinking of adding record wear....

Another excellent addition to the swap Zero, it turned out great! I like to use materials that are available and at my disposal (just like the ancient islanders had to do, right?), but using "shite wood" from my barn has me second guessing my reasoning. I could have carved a piece of sheet rock and been just as well off, but here is the start.

I will paint in yellows, greens, and blacks to match the main tiki from the original album cover art.

Zero - looks great, I think some record wear would look good too. In Japan they say the used jeans with the Skoal can wear on the back pocket fetch top dollar. I wonder if it's the same for album covers with record wear?
Cy - what an awesome "frame"

Zero, awesome! I think it's your call re: record wear- looks great now, though.. .

cy, that's amazing. I want frames like this for my records now.... A new addition to your creations?

Have to say, this is indeed a killer theme for this Swap. Mike, thanks for organizing once again!

ZeroTiki what a wonderful rendition, better than the original.

CY a master work of carpentry in addition to the album cover.

Tiki Ano thank you since coming up with this idea I was contacted to do another album cover for the Wish List.



Now the 24 days of Christmas is the countdown to our exchange! Christmas Cheer all around, Wendy

Waiting for Jon to begin the countdown.... okay, there's still a bunch of time left.

Here's version 2.0 of the "Exotica!" mug- it's narrower than my original. Here are the pics:









For comparison, here's it next to version 1.0:



Here's the bad news: the initial mug patch repair did not work, and another pinhole appeared when it was high (glaze) fired. Due to this, it's not water tight- mug is for decoration only. I will try to find a glass insert that I can put inside of it (which will hold liquid), but not sure if I will be able to find one in time.

Hope that's okay for the swap recipient. Look forward to seeing everyone else's work progress!

My piece is totally going to come in last minute. I've been swamped with christmas orders, non-stop commissions, and my Dawn's Fund Frasier event over on Fb to raise the clams to do a major licensing gig. BUT I haven't forgotten. Album cover is my favorite theme so far.

Love it David! Classic with a twist. If the hole doesn't get sealed then it's a sculpture, not a mug

You can do it Dawn!!!

I sketched out my design and tonight I should be putting paint to canvas.

Here's a crappy pic to prove I actually started:


Edited to show tonight's progress:


I'm pretty happy so far, which is actually a HUGE relief, lol!
