Mug#9-Not easy to visualize how it looks by pictures alone. I really like how the face on this one spreads out across the mug. This one was quick and fun to carve. I like this one.

RVICTOR you have covered so many tiki styles and ways of representing them that every time I come here I'm impressed.

The mug I'm doing for you is based on the Tiki Modern book cover and not the Bosko mug. I hope you'll be as happy with that style.

Dan thanks you. I can tell you that he'll never box anything up for an exhibit. He'd worry too much.

I think you'll really like the Concepts glazes.

Keep it up, Wendy

Just got caught up on your thread- beautiful work, great style. As Wendy wrote, love your renditions of the classics, albeit with your touch. Killer, and great glaze choices.

Look forward to seeing more!

Wendy - Thanks for the complements. You are very sweet and I appreciate the encouragement.
I think your choosing the Tiki Modern Mug is a better idea.
I took mug #5, slathered on three coats of the concepts and it's in for firing now. Definatly learning to pay attention to the test tiles.

It's really busy right now getting ready for the holidays. I have a bunch of different pieces in the process of getting glazed and finished and three mug builds waiting to be carved. I'm going to be off work for the next two weeks after tomorrow and am looking forward for some time to get the glazing finished and get back to carving. I wish I had more time than I do. I have allot of things going on in my life but Art is what keeps me feeling alive and happy.

Tiki Ano - Thanks for the kind words. Love your Rum DMC mug.

Mahalo. Well, it's been a busy holiday season so far. Have a couple of days off but there flying by. Kind of had an issue with the lighting in my workspace (dining room) as one of the dimmer switches burnt out. Fortunately I got a $100 Lowes gift certificate in the mail and I was able to upgrade the switches and lighting to LED. Now the room is better than before. Nice to have a little Christmas Karma helping out.

Anyways, I was just hopping on to post a few more carvings that I uploaded some pictures of...hope you like them.
The first one is mug #10...I carved it on Christmas morning before the kids got up. I am considering this the last of the ten barrel mug goal that I told myself I would reach when I started out. From here on, anything goes.

Mug #10 - Drummer Mug





Next was a Bosko Tribute Mug. It's an idea that I had about making "tribute" mugs...kind of like a tribute to tiki mug making Ali'i (or Royalty). The idea for this mug was to have a collage of the artists work (but in my freehand of course), have their name and a torch (symbolizing passing of the torch, so to speak). I had to take several photos to get the entirety of the mug. My family said that they really like this one...hope you all do to.

Wow, I absolutely love your new designs.
You have a wonderful style.
May I buy any of these or are you keeping them all?
How is Bosko a part of them?
How are you signing the bottoms?
Are you putting c 2014 on them?

Hang10-glad you like them. It keeps me going.

Wendy - How do you feel about swapping? As you already know, I like your work as well. Makes sense to me. Plus the thought of one of my mugs in your collection just sounds cool.

Wendy-To answer your question about how I am signing my work, I have attached a picture of the bottom of a few mugs. I don't know if there is something more I should be doing? I have been carving a logo on the bottom that stands for my initials RV and carving the year into it. Do I or should I also be doing the C?

I've sent you a PM. Trading sounds like a fun proposition. Wendy

So I had some extra clay and some extra time (which seems to be allot more scarce most of the time) and started playing around...practicing my impromptu sculpting work. The result was this pile of heads...


Also, I made another mug for my personal collection. Can anyone guess which mug this one is a one-off of???
