Buddy Rum Demon. Keep up the good work.

Just stumbled onto your post,Joe! Incredible stuff! I feel so bad for all those poor casulty mugs,especially Fred #32! His poor Bottom! And the leprosy? You're "kiln" me with the commentary! You got a great attitude,purposeful drive, and major talent! Can't wait to grab some time and visit your website! Keep it up Bruthah! So many great mugs are comin' outta that garage of yours! Mahalo for sharing the experience!

Great update - can't wait to see the new mugs. Have you considered drilling a hole in the bottom of the "damned" mugs and offering them as planters? That way they'd get to see the world and feel the love.

Wow! Thanks for all the love, people!
Van Tiki, I'm waaay ahead of you. Not sure what plants will work best for such a small/deep pot.
TJ, best of luck on the Fred auction. Those are some DAMN cute dogs! Thanks alot, now Katie wants a dog more than ever. Speaking of pets, I have to show off something I was doing with my late summer that had nothing to do with mugs or tiki... but....

It's a goddamn TANK for my stupid kitties to play in!! YAY! They were sleeping in a couple of boxes that were sitting in that corner anyway and well, it wasn't all that CLASSY so I figured, as I'm sure most of you would have, that I should construct a cat-sized tank for them to play and sleep in. No, it doesn't roll, but the turret rotates. It still needs a paint job and some sort of armament, but I just had to share.

Feline battle aside, it's been tough to keep up on mug stuff lately. As a freelancer, I've been pretty blessed with work this year, which takes not only my time, but my arse (out of town). Be sure and catch the wacky stop-motion effects in next week's episode of "My Name is Earl" to see where I was last month! Unless you hate that show, then please don't watch. Anyway, I'm back now and I'm only kinda tired but HEY!!! I have some time between gigs sooooooo....

LOOK! It's a new mug!

The friggin float! I think we're just calling it "Glass Float". Anyway, we made ourselves a nice master, soooo we're thinking a run of 100 for this one, though I'd like to make more. It all depends on how smooth we can make the casting process. As you can see it has a LID! WOOO!! Yeah! Lid technology reaches the backwater of Portland! It's a beaut I tell's ya! It's a bit smaller than Coco, but YOWZA what a hot idea! I can say this because it's a Katie mug. Of course it was. She's all like: "Hasn't anyone made a glass float mug?" And I said: "Not that I'm aware of." And whiz! Bang! She was off. The rest is history. This is the first one out of the kiln. It's OURS! so hands off. There will be more. Please have patience.

Meanwhile, here's a new one you CAN get your paws on! Finally, after all the teasing and whining... tomorrow.... friday.... the first foogin Banana is ready to go home with YOU! Check ebay tomorrow night. Whee!

That there is Banana #3. #3 of 30. Yes, thirty. This here thing is a ROYAL pain to put together so we're limiting it to 30 and yes, we will dance on it's grave when all 30 are done. Still, a hell of a glazing job. Oh, and I WILL make one that looks like an ear of corn. Why not?

Ok. I'll see you all on the block tomorrow. Good luck!!


PS don't even ASK about the website.....

That float mug is a work of genius (not that the banana isn't either). It looks like it could come from some forgotten 1950s vintage bar.
