Wendy- Thanks! Glad you and Dan like them. There's going to be more in the works!

MadDogMike- MIKE! Thanks for stopping by. I'll be seeing Babalu again soon!

Haletiki- Hello, and thanks!

swizzle- Thanks Robbie. I had these going at the same time as yours were hence my curiosity about whether you used a slip cast mold for the bowl or had built it over a form. I've been using forms, but would like to start using slip casting instead. I think a cleaner look can be achieved.

hang10tiki- Thanks, Jon! See ya again at Oasis this year I hope.

GROG- Thanks! Too bad GROG have Bowlarama when Bowana have no time to participate! Oh well, Bowana make bowls now.

Big Kahuna- Thank you!

littleglles- Thanks for stopping by! Pssst, my favorite is the 3rd one too!

kustomtiki- Thanks, John! Looking forward to seeing you and the fam too!


Bowls survived the kiln and glaze work done ready for the second round! Gosh, I hate glazing!

Another Moai bowl on the turntable. I should have my own Bowlerama, eh,wot GROG?

I have two new pendant designs going as well.


A Moai and a Lono. These are about two inches in length. The pics are about double actual size. Hmm. I better put some more detail on them!

Thanks for visiting!

Bowie

I agree with LLT, but not the teeny part.

Can't wait to see the bowls!

Bowls like these are the reason I've now developed, and will continue to expand, a bowl collection.

Thanks, Kenny, Hale, and extra special BIG thanks to Hilda

The bowls came out pretty nice. It's always a bit of a surprise when glazing.


The moai bowl I wanted to look like stone. Check!



The Hawaiian Bowl I wanted to look like wood. Check!



The Ali'i Bowl I wanted to look green. Check!

On to new business!

This is a custom casting of my Minimalist Moai mug.
Hmm, not so minimalist now.



From the Freak Show: Custom conjoined twin Minimalist Moai(s).

Thanks for your visit!

Bowie

Dave, the conjoined twins need a septum so you can have 2 different drinks at once
Great job!

I have to say my favorite is still the little bowl with the Ali'i figures, but the wood effect on the second bowl in incredible and the stone texture and glazing on the Moai bowl turned out amazing. Heck, all three are awesome.

Love the conjoined Moai and I have to agree with Mike, a septum so you could have two drinks at once would be really cool.

Always a joy to look at your creations.

MadDogMike - Thanks, and what a great idea to add a septum! Ah nuts! Now I have to make another one!

swizzle - Thanks, Ha ha haa! Yep, green, green, green!

GROG - Thanks for visiting. When GROG going to have "Son Of Bowlarama"?

littlegiles - Yep, the greenie is still my fav too! Thanks!

TikiAno - Great meeting you at the ITMP! Glad you like your new Moai! I looked into Get Centered. The hours are kinda bad except on Thursdays. Maybe that's when I'll come in and check out the glazes and stuff!

Dave, I think they have some other evening hours that aren't on their website. If you can give them a call to check. I told Elly, one of the owners, that "another tiki guy" might be calling and want to come in in the evening.
