Beside mugs and carving etc. sometimes other projects come up that prove to be fun as well. Here is one of those things.

Helz arrived one Saturday with this old bar that was found on Craig's list by another TCer who gave a heads up on it, and it ended up here.

This was the day it landed in it's somewhat poor condition.

Of course it needed a test drive which Helz gave it.

Some of the process:

After removing the top, during the effort.


We really didn't like the clumsy looking rail supports


We're making some headway here.


This shows the new shape for the supports.


The backside, needs some work too


Here's a detail of the finished support and rail


The cleaned up redone inside/ backside


Pretty much done except for the new feet




That's it for now, and we have been messing with some other stuff too.

Oh man don't post that in here G - you know what's gonna happen now....


Seriously though, what a totally brilliant idea - the GMAN Fogcutter! I love that old-school style with the little logo tiki mounted on the side. Great work Helz/Pop/G!

OK "G", just for you.

We did three mugs like the one we sent you. I also tried a chocolate brown slip that I used as a test on one other "Biter". It was also a test of one of the reactive glazes I've been wanting to try. I liked the way it came out, but, I like the first vintage looking version better. Here's the other one.



No glaze was applied to the Biter and it shows the high fired slip.



The inside was done in a clear glaze and the outside in a reactive. It has a whole different look.


Thanks again "G",
pop

Wow the colours on that reactive glazed mug are incredible! Each one will be completely different. I can't wait to see the run of them if you decide to do more.
Cheers!

Hi Pops,

Wow, this is the first time I have kicked around in your thread....you sir are one fine craftsman! Everything is damn tight! I really like the collaboration mug that you and G did. The high fire glazes you are using are wonderful. What are you firing these to? If you have one of these killer "G" mugs for sale, I would really love to get one?

Love your ride! I also wake up every morning and thank the lord for fossil fuel.

OK, yes I know,I know. It's been a looong time and I offer no excuses, but you guys with your clay jams keep making me wish I could be there. What cool stuff and what an opportunity to learn things. What fun that has to be.

Anyway things haven't quit happening, I just haven't been here much.

Because of your influence I am posting some pics of this bowl that I sketched up years ago and sculpted more than once but have finally gotten the mold done and have started pour a few.

This the wax I worked from.






The molds for the two pieces.




Poured in slip and joined.




This is what's up for now and if and when I get one glazed up I'll get a pic of that. Might make it look like our original volcano mug, don't know yet.

Later

Well I have finally gotten a bowl glazed so here are a few pics. It has four straw holes, holds 56oz. up to the straw holes and has a large fuel tank for the fire. My goal was to be able to torch it up with the fog and not have the fog smother the flame.



Now we need to give it a test drive.





Success!

Over and out.
