Also, cool that you are going to make it to Tiki Oasis! I am a runner too, but I usually run at night. But, since you are on Hawaiian time, I might be able to wake up at about the same time as you. So we can figure it out.

I usually run from Mission Beach to Pacific Beach. It is a nice run right along the water. It is a little over 3 miles I believe. Only like 10 minutes max from the hotel. Could get crowded though depending on the time, that is why I usually run at 11 at night. But it shouldn't be bad if we do it before noon. But I also know a lot of other nice places too.

I guess we will figure it out as the time comes.

Congrats on the site-of-the-day (and on the contracts, work is good when you have bills to pay and clay to buy )

Mahalo everyone!

This afternoon I was able to escape from my computer just long enough to spray underglaze on the bone-dry AP edition Cracked Moai tiles!


There are 12 AP tiles, and I am trying a wide range of colors and techniques before I commit to the full tile edition. SHould be some fun stuff. After the bisque firing, I'll be doing various washes and clear coats. Should be fun!

The black looks extra lava-like. I'll be doing one with a light grey wash, and one with a radient red wash. I'm not sure if I'll leave it at that, or do a satin clear coat over the top. Tough decisions!


Mahalo for looking -
Henrik "VanTiki"

Henrick,

I see some tiles have the cracked look and some do not. Will you be offering tiles in both versions?

There are 6 slightly different versions of the Cracked Moai (2 "clean" and 4 "cracked"). I plan on rotating the molds as I press my way through the edition (plan on pressing 50). If you order one, fate will decide what tile you receive! I'll ship them in the order of the edition, so unless you get more than 6 you wont get any repeats

Stuffed the 12 AP cracked moai into the kiln last night and threw the switch this morning. Hope this run goes better than the last one! Here are some shots I took of the tiles with the final underglaze washes applied, right before I did a coat of satin clear glaze on top:





As you can see - I'm trying out a WIDE range of color to help me figure out the best look for the edition run of 50 tiles.

Mahalo!

I really like the black over red and the purple over red. Looking really cool!

Me too!

Mahalo everyone! Kiln just finished. Now I gotta let it cool for a seemingly endless 10 hours or so before I can open it for the happy or sad news. Ceramics is rough on those who don't like to wait!

Another exciting kiln opening in the near future. WOOHOO!! Those look amazing before firing so I can only imagine what they are going to look like afterward.
