4Wheel - Thanks man! Yeah, I'm starting to get happier with the glazes too.

Kahaka - Thanks for bouncing in...I really appreciate it.

Sir B - I'm still blown away by your super secret piggy projects Your going to blow the doors off this house.

OceaOtica - Great to see ya around brother! We really are going to have to hook up.

GROG - Let me say that again...GROOOGGGG!!!!

Why hello Bai - we've missed you! I'm a "HUGE" fan of yours to kiddo!

Hey G - I really was thinking about you as I was carvin' up that gator - Go G!!

Well, as I mentioned in my last post, I'm in Boulder, Colorado for my daughters graduation. It's good to be kicking it in the old hood. Today My Step Mom "Bunny"...yes that is her name...had to run over to the Boulders Potters Guild to glaze some pots she has done to sell at the Farmers Market here in town. This Potters Guild really is magnificent place for folks who don't have their own studio to play in...

...everything is housed in this old fire house building.



here's my step mom Bunny glazing her pots.



Some stuff ready to be fired.



Look at all these nice new electric kilns they have here.



Gas kilns too.



and yes...I played around a little bit.



If I still lived in Boulder, I might hang here quite a bit

Still, I'm ready to come home to San Diego and the Center of the Universe now.

More later...bye.

Babalu! LOVE the Squidalu mugs! The croc is great, and I really dig the bird! My favorite part are his big birdy feet!

Awesome that you went out to Colorado, but were still able to work on clay!

Why thanks for bouncing in and leaving kind words Sneaky.

It was good seeing you over here MadDoggie...Yup, that is an old 50's Checker Limo down there on the corner. That guy has a limo biz...hummm...

Thanks Eric, I withed I could have kicked it with you guys at the northern Chop this last weekend...next time hopefully.

Your the best Clarita! Yes, we do have some great times over here.

LLT - Hey dude, your painting on the "The Gathering" Platter turned out perfect! Folks, this large platter is the same one that I was demoing on in Artist's Alley at Oasis 09...It says something like: The Gathering - Oasis 09 Demo on the back. I still have a little work to do on it before Kinny and I launch it out into the market place...soon.




BenZ - Glad we could make you grin brother...ok, here some more...

Well, a lot has been happening over here in the shop since I last posted; some of which I will need to post a little later on, but here's a few of the goodies that have come down the pipeline...

This is my 3rd custom Squidalu Drum Mug - My grandson (the Bird) calls this monkey drum the "Ooo-Ooo"...so there ya go. I'm calling it the Ooo-Ooo Drum I wanted to really stick the work into the handle on this one and make it a main focal point. The inside is glazed in a cool retro 50's type of Sea Foam Green color. The monkey's little hat topper is an old fan brush of mine that has been added. There are some other pictures of him you can see on his eBay listing here:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120522515532&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT









And lookie here...this is Sir Squid's custom Squidalu #3 - I just doesn't get any better than this. Dyam Squids!! You all can see other images of this guy too on Squid's auction here:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250569289546&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT









Master Buzz - He's ready brother, come over and glaze. You should bring that new pup with you so we can see if he scares the hell out of Simon too.



Sir B - These babies are ready to glaze now...This is one of the finest Ku mugs to have ever been built in my opinion. Bowana, it was a true joy watching you put this guy together. The other one is awesome too, but that full bodied Ku...jeez!




Thanks for popping in peoples...more soon.

PS: I stand corrected - Big Bro pointed out on another thread, on another matter, that carvings like Sir B's mug there are not called Ku, but instead Kane...cool...

Babalu -

Spectacular new works, man! I love them all. Bowana's Ku mugs? Again another modern classic, that full bodied one. Its a wonder no old-time tiki bar had mugs like THAT.

Missed you Saturday at the SFV CHOP. Next time huh?

I need to come down and hang with the clay peeps for a day, I'm feeling I need to try the sculpting thing someday soon.

Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to the next post.

Incredible stuff, all of it!

Love the monkey hair (I'm a sucker for mixed media). Zombidile rocks! Bowana's work is always amazing. And Triple-Threat-Buzzy* is again a productive member of society.
