Thought it's time for a bit of an update. 2011 is about gone and it seems we didn't get to do all we wanted but, we did have fun doing what we did. Anyway, here are some pics of a few things we did.
The event mug we did for CATT kept us busy. Their logo was based on the Witco cat and we tried to keep our design as close to their art work as possible.
In this pic we were still working on glaze, as you can see.
Besides the event mugs we also provided two one off versions for their raffle, the proceeds of which went to the Cat Nap from the Heart in LaGrange Park IL.
The first one was based on our "Tourist" version of mugs we do.
The second we called "Luau Catt" and it was inspired by the iconic mask mug from the famous Luau 400 in New York City. However, we did do ours a bit differently. Where the original Luau had the orange and purple cold painted on the exposed bisque, we did ours in high fire underglaze, and then put a clear coat over the whole mug and fired it to 2169 degrees (Cone 5). So it's, like all the CATT mugs, completely dishwasher and food safe.
We also did one more one off version by request.
We are also doing a special "Orange Richard" version of our moai for our friends at Zen Tiki Lounge
and maybe that's enough for now.
