Go Mike, Go!! I think you are going to have another winner on your hands. can't wait to see this one finished.

Between you and Wendy, I'm really getting an itch to get my kiln out and do some playing.

Cy, Robert, Hale, ATP & BBumz - thank you very much
Dale - you need to break out that kiln - don't let Wendy & I have all the fun!
H10T - I think "pyrat rum" is already taken, I'll have to settle for pirate

Those 2 pieces were together when it went into the kiln



I think it wasn't quite dry and I fired it too fast (impatient) ~ bad combination. I'll see if I can't salvage it with some Magic Mender.

Arrr, just in tyme for International Talk Like a Pirate Day, my "Why is the Rum Gone?" bottle be out of the fires of Hades



I am still expirementing with this saggar firing. I piled the chemicals of thicker this time and it left uneven markings. And I forgot to add LittleGiles' twine. In theory, I could re-fire this back to cone 06 glaze temperature (1800 degrees) and burn off all the makings (except the red and black underglaze) and start over. Or maybe I could brush it with Ferric Chloride again and refire to 1000 degrees to even it out?

PS - the Magic Mender seems to have worked
PSS - I would like to stain the cork a little darker but haven't found anything "food safe" yet to do that with. I have some brown paste food color but it doesn't soak in. I think an oil based wood stain would do it but wouldn't be food safe. If it's used purely decorative, then the cork doesn't matter.
PSSS - I vetoed the runny green glaze because the outside of the bottle is burnished smooth and I was afraid the glaze wouldn't stick completely

Great looking bottle there Mike. Glad to see the mending appears to have worked.

As for staining the cork, could you use some espresso or perhaps some red wine? How about a soak in a good dark rum? that would be fitting considering the name of the bottle. Just some thoughts.

- Dale

MDM, I agree with ATP. I use tea to darken light colored rope and fish nets alla time and am usually satisfied with the results. I leave it in the hot sun for a few days-does it get hot where you live"
Cheers

Mike I love the bottle. Could you burn the cork with a match to darken it?
ATP thanks for the work ethic note. I'm always trying to keep up with Mike. It feels good to be mentioned. littlegiles you have a kiln? Get to work now and start a thread for us to watch! Wendy

Thanks for the kind comment guys. I tried soaking that cork in various solutions but 1) nothing soaks in and 2) it floats on top of the solution I ended up trying your suggestion Wendy, I took a torch to it! Much better.

Since I already committed the ultimate sin by posting piratey stuff, I might as well open the floodgates and post a couple more. As a Charger fan, this goes against every grain of my being - but I made a Raiders mug with my skull mold. It was for the guy who introduced me to my wife 30 years ago so I guess I owed him




It has a big flat black twisted "wrought iron handle" on the back that is "riveted" to the to the skull. Of course, I had to put a little "dig" on the bottom since the Raiders are the mortal enemy of the Chargers. I'm sure it's different in NorCal, but here in SoCal the Raider fans are inmates and ingrates, many don't even realize that the Raiders is a football team. They think it's a gang that wears silver & black instead of red or blue. So I engraved on the bottom "Raiders, a team - not a gang!"

Since Amy posted her
Pirate Ship about 5 years ago I have been dreaming of making one as a treehouse. Of course I'm not nearly the master craftsman that Ben is, but I'm going for it. My older grandson is now almost 3 years old and it's time to get started.

The plan is to build the floor frame first, then hoist it about 5 feet into the trees. With a stable platform, I can get up there to finish the deck and the stub walls. The framework is done, here's a picture of my daughter with Cap'n Goobie and First Mate Tater Tot. The Cap'n was rapidly approaching nap time and was in a rare "I don't wanna" mood, hopefully the next pic will be better



The stern of the ship will be against the left tree, the right side of bow will be against the right tree, and the center tree will come up through the deck to serve as the mast. The framework of the bow is rather pointy for strength, but the deck and sides will be more gracefully curved. I had to order 3/4 x 10 inch lag screws since I couldn't find them locally, hopefully they will be in this week and we'll have her in the clouds this Sunday.

I found out that getting old isn't for wimps! While working on the ship Saturday morning, I was crouched in an odd position and pushing hard on the drill to put screws in. Then I heard and felt something POP! in my chest. I seemed to have separated one of my lower ribs. By Saturday afternoon, I just couldn't seem to get comfortable in any position so I put on a rib binder & an ice pack and took a nap. After a couple hours of ice, it was doing some better and I was able to go back out to work. Wendy is going to be mad at me but I don't usually wear a dust mask, I just sneeze instead. Except now, it hurts like hell to sneeze so I wanted to avoid that at all costs! Here I am with my mask, rib binder, and ice pack
