Howdy folks-
Just posting to let you all know that a certain sculpt of mine has gone missing from its rightful place in my display cabinet. If any sharp eyes come upon it, I would be grateful for a heads-up.



If someone should wish to return it, regardless of how they acquired it, no questions asked.

Thanks.
squid

That stinks - forgive my ignorance, but can I assume you're talking about the white sculpture on the right, not the brown mug on the left?

Hope it turns up.

When you say "rightful place, in my display cabinet" are you really saying from your home?

I think we need Tom Lopaka from 'Hawaiian Eye', or Steve McGarrett from Five-O on the case.

Hope you find the missing item. That really stinks.

Yup, It's the white (actually light gray)sculpture on the right and it's gone from my house. No mugs missing .

I keep a pretty open home (well, up until now) and many folks have been over to check out the studio, get sculpting tips, just visit, whatever. Now I have to go all Homeland Security.

I'm just hoping that whoever nicked it will be stupid enough to show it off to a TCer or try to sell it on eBay.

So if you hear of its existance in someone's collection or see it for sale somewhere, I'd appreciate knowing so I can try to retrieve it. No nastiness, I'd just like to have it back (so my kids can sell it for $5 at a yard sale after I croak:)).

FYI: It's about 10% larger than the mug and made of a hard tooling wax (not sticky).

THANKS AGAIN!

WOW, I am speechless here. The loss of the sculpt is bad enough but the idea that someone who was welcomed in as a friend would treat you like this, WOW.

Thanks for the condolances everyone. Perhaps when I opened my mind they got scared and panicked!

Grog, you get the full body cavity search next time you come over for lunch.

ouch, so its not a mug after all. No one can really display it or look at it in the open. Not really worth having. But hopefully we don't start seeing fakes of this mug sold over in Canada or China.

Doubt it. Would you go up against Disney, Shag AND Tiki Farm? Plus we got TC Five-0!

What a rotten thing to happen to such a great guy! I sent Squid an e-mail once, asking him what kind of wax he uses for his sculpts, and he replies with an invitation to come on over to check out the studio, and to walk me through the whole process. He didn't need to do that, he could've just sent a simple reply and let it go at that. But he did, and it was a real thrill and honor to take him up on his invite, and I did get a lot of great sculpting tips.

Squid, if I didn't say it enough, thanks again! And I hope you recover your missing sculpt!
