I REALLY like that plate! I can't wait to see what it looks like glazed.

Here is a new tiki design that I carved out of clay during last weeks hurricane. I was fortunate enough not to lose power so I was still able to entertain myself. More on the way very soon....





Very cartoon like.

I tried to go with the wood texture look from alot of the vintage mugs. This changed the whole attitude of the tiki once the lines were carved into it. Havn't decided on a color yet.

The "toothpick experience" WAS an experience if you catch my drift. I still don't think a mold would capture the quality of detail from using that technique. 40 of the Yumskulls have been completed so it will be a while before I need to make some more. One of my favorite mug designs would have to be the Otagiri. I would like to use the "peanut" technique on one of mine in the future.

Thanks for the praise and !yes! Break out your clay, we need more of it on here!

Thanks guys. I'm making a number of potential mug models. This one may or may not become a mug. We'll see once the ole kiln has enough stuff in it to do a firing.

Here's a new tiki carved in the same style as the last one. I wanted to try more of an emotional expression with with this guy. This one is a little bit shorter and more closer to the base. Now that it's finished, it kinda reminds me of a rum barrel mug that has gone insane.


"Raaaaawwwr!"

I'm lovin' it! I am really happy with my Yumskull, he's so cute! I bought a shorter one to use more as a bowl, I'd love to be able to have more of your mugs sitting on my shelf. Please keep up the great designs! FUN stuff!

yumyum, I remember when you showed your prototype. And then I saw your Ebay listing and I thought you made a mold (which I have no clue how thats done). But no, each one hand made. I put a bid on one last week and was out bidded.

That last one looks so smooth. How did you get it so perfect looking. Is that a hand-built?

I like the woodgrain look, by "Peanut" do you mean a PMP woodgrain? I like that tight, squiggly look that PMP products have, especially when they have that little knothole in the belly button.

Or do you mean the Islander/Trader Dicks Peanut? Maybe use old, rounded pencil erasers? make a bundle of pencils, rubber band them together & stick them into a small potato to make a "Peanut" stamp?

I also like the woodgrain in the old Harvey's Tiki Buckets, but it might be too much work to try to recreate that.
