Howzit peopo,

I've been bizzy doing 3 things at once. Carving, ceramics and da buisness side of da house. I just sold a trunk full of mugs to Kaponos at da Aloha tower. It's for da Don Tiki show on da 13th. I can't wait to see dem braddahz again. A great show dey get.

anyways, aloha braddah Benzart! tanks fo da email. As you see I always stay busy. I finally spent a couple of hours last nigt at LaMariana for a few drinks with friends.

anyways heres da pics. I know you peopo here love pics so here you go.

dis is me at da local ceramic spot. I don't really collect newer design mugs. I love da classics. So, dis wahine here has some original molds from terra ceramics when they sold out there stuff. I used 2 of da molds to create some stuff myself.

This is me at da table waiting for da molds to be ready fo open.


While I'm waiting fo da molds I started painting one I already fired. Now it's ready fo da paint.


here is what it looks like wen da clay still stay wet.


Attaching da tiki to da bowl


once you get em done. Then dey ready fo da kiln


afta it comes from da kiln it looks li'dis. Then it's ready for da glaze.


this glaze is a real rough glaze with sand in it. It makes it look like stone....or a mountain crater(hint)



this one is ready for da glaze. it's done being painted.



getting dis wun ready fo da kiln. inside glaze.


now afta they are done...................












inside da crater


bottom. didn't have time to make'em all pretty. cannot see'em anyway





2 18 inch mask I carved out of a coconut tree.





there you go.

Alohaz peeps. untill next time. Oh ya, wun big mahaloz to all who purchased some of my new mugs. they are all gone. Tangaroa will be ready by da first week of November.I'll also have more Mount Bumatay's and DBPuka's da first week of Nevember.

shoooootz

Great work Gecko! Love the crater. Awesome glaze. Looks like you're having lots of fun getting your hands dirty.

Next time you're at La Mariana's, toast one up for us. Missing it madly!

Aloha
