*wolf whistle*

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHWWWWWWWWEEEEEEEEEEEEEE those are some good looking bowls!

Also, as the owner of a cabinet of curiosities, and sideshow performer, that conjoined moai sings to me, man. It's brilliant. I love it. So cool. Please be sure to post photos of the glaze on that one when you're done.

Wendy - Thanks! Oasis coming sooon!!
TikiAno - I haven't had a chance to get to Get Centered yet, but now that I'm running a bit low on glazes I think I may be darkening their doorway soon!
hang10tiki - Thanks for stopping by!
Hale Tiki - Sideshow performer, eh? How cool is that! I hope you don't bite the heads off chickens or something like that!

More from Bowana's Freakshow:


The conjoined twins came out nicely!



While I was at it, I made one more set of twins just a bit different:



This one sports a septum in the middle to make possible having two
separate but equal drinks at a time to share with a friend!
Septum copyright MadDogMike patent pending all rights reserved!

I guess I didn't have to write my name twice, but it's more fun that way,
it's more fun that way


There were probably Moai Nerds too, right?

Only this one's hip with his ear spools.


Face Off!

Guess I spoke too soon! This one had an accident in the kiln.
Kilnmeister Babalu and I discussed what could have happened
at length, but could not really come up with an answer for why
it could have broke like this in the glaze fire. This kind of break would
normally have happened in the bisque. Some kind of shrinkage maybe.

However, we both agreed that there is no crying in Tiki, so I had
to suck it up and move on.

If anyone has got an answer to what could have caused it, I would
sure like to hear it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Bowie

Or Babalu bashed it against the side of the kiln taking it out.

Dave, looking great. Love the new conjoined Moais, the Nerd Moai is perfect.

FYI Get Centered no longer has Saturday hours, I'd just call to check their PM hours- think there's someone there later on Thursdays? Look forward to catching up either there or at Oasis.

Hi Jon! The question should have been, "What's in Gecko's kiln?" I've been working with Gecko'z SSA on some limited edition mugs.


Like this one! It's called Ali'i.


And this one, Ku!


Comes in brown and matte black.

We've also been working on some special editions.

Like these pink Lonos and Born of Fire mugs.

And custom one offs.

Like this Lono with a blue crackle glaze.

And before I forget my manners-ATP, hiltiki, GROG (who I'm glad is out of the hospital and looking good like a caveman should), TikiAno, Bruddah Bear, LLT, Baddtiki and MDM, thanks for your visit. I'm still around, just been too busy to post anything lately (lamest excuse ever).
Thanks jon10tiki for resurrecting my thread!

Bowie
