So good! I love the faux texture you apply as well. That's gotta take some time. Nice, nice work.

Awwww, Sir B You is just "it" dude!

Folks, we are damn lucky here on TC to have Sir B playing with us...he is truly a masterful sculptor! It has been a joy watching him throw these works together, and have him kick it with me over in my studio. For you ceramicists: Sir B is pinching these figures up into shape with small pieces of clay, working the piece hollow as he goes. This new tiki is case in point...he worked it from the bottom up - first the base - added legs (solid) - then he began working (pinching) small bits of clays up-words, letting the clay set up, and bracing the figure as he works. The body and the head area on this tiki are hollow (thin walled). For those of you who have worked in clay, you know, this sh#t ain't easy to do. Sir B makes it look easy.



Sure, that's all great and all, but what really impresses me about this latest tiki is how, like crashing atoms, it explodes classic sculpture, the fierceness of Alien, "Tiki", and the functional aspects of a drinking vessel together in a sonic booom! The "S" curve shown in this figure is very classic take on the figure, and adds a "full tilt boogie" movement feeling to what is really just standing still. Certainly, something you don't see in Tiki everyday. Very nice....



I agree with Master Toe Dave, I would go solid black with this guy too, but I'm not sure if I would go with a gloss or, a shiny satin type of mantra ray skin type of black instead of glossy??...I don't know...I would suggest glazing the inside a different glossy color perhaps...it would scream "I am a mug" if you did that. At any rate, the sculpture part of this mug is so strong that it speaks for it's self...you don't need to get all tricky with the glazing. I'll baby him over here for you while he dries, and get him through a successful firing for ya boss...and, oh yeah, I almost forgot...'git a rope!' You nut!

Damn, Dav, that guy is ready to kick ASS!

I like how it's so classic and new at the same time!

I agree with the black glaze, not glossy.

What's next?

As before, I am extremely impressed by the dynamics of your sculptures ... It gives me much to think about ...

Keep posting!

And thank's to Babalu for the story telling.

Whoa.

I mean... Whoa...

I mean... like whoa... I'm speechless at the amazing amount of talent on display here!!!

AWESOME, AWESOME work! The Ali'i mug and the Li'l Tuff Guy (is that the name of it?) are incredible enough... then you blow us away with your wahine mug (love the top!) and then you clobber us with that last piece... in-friggin-credible!!!!

And they're all mugs! Outstanding!!!

Some of those tikis have reminded my of aliens, especially the ones with the big triangle eyes, 'cos are those really supposed to be eyes, or do they not have eyes, like the aliens don't have eyes, and then I don't like to think about it too much, 'cos it starts to creep me out... (guess i got over my speechlessness)

But KILLER WORK!!!
