mike-

this project is KICK ASS! Your grandkids will LOVE this for years to come! You are a great Paw-Paw! (or grandpa or whatever you call yourself, I'm drinking chocolate martinis, crappy day)

In any case I need to get creating. I finally finished my bamboo frame for Sophista Tiki's picture but still need to hang it. Back to school time is rough!

Feel better soon & heal quickly!

Mike, any progress with the ceramic skull you were working with at Buzzy's house? It would be nice to see progress pictures, it was a pretty nice looking skull.

A going green pirate ship! When it's brown will you paint some waves across the bottom or just ship in some icebergs to melt like they do in Saudi Arabia? This is a magnificent project Mike. I want to be adopted so you'll build one for us. Wendy

Thank you all for your kind words on my treehouse. I have finally admitted to myself it is actually for me and that the grandkids are just an excuse I posted some updates (link in my signature) including what I did with the crackle skull I posted on Wendy's thread.

I tweaked my neck yesterday so today seemed like a good day to work on ceramics instead of treehouse construction. The Ambum bottle sculpt is done. Now to let it dry slowly and see what I want to do when I fire it.'

Jon, I don't know nuthin' 'bout no Ambien! (is that a double negative?)

I forgot to mention that part of the reason I have been absent for a while is that I was shanghai'd to Shanghai where another roundeye and I were forced to carry a beautiful princess around. When they sent me to fetch fireworks for the nightly celebration, I tied myself to a large skyrocket and blasted myself to Okinawa.

When do you sleep MadDog? Another great bottle and a fun photo too. You have a terrific show going and now I'll go see the pirate ship web page. (: Wendy

Bisque fired the Ambum Bottle and it survived the heat. I put matte black on the negative space, it looks a little stark right now but I'm hoping it will look better when I get some color on it. If I photograph it against a black background it should look good Going to do saggar firing on this one too, I think it will give it a nice organic feel. Got some copper wire to wrap around it this time, see what that does. Back into the kiln today for glaze on the inside, hopefully saggar firing in the morning

Keep working hard every day so we don't have to wait so long for the next set of photos. They are like Lays potato chips, have one must have more! Wendy

I know I've slackin' on the Tiki ceramics while working on the Piratre Ship. But now that the starboard hull is finished (the side that faces the road), I'll divide my time a little better.

Besides, the time change really messes up any outdoor projects, I get home from work around 4 and it will already be close to dark! Isn't that like cutting one end off your blanket and sewing to the other end to make the blanket longer? Doesn't seem to work. They talk about how we get an extra hour of sleep tonight ~ I'm calling Shenanigans! My internal clock wakes me up at 5am every morning. Now for the next few weeks I'll wake up at 4am! Then I'll be begging for 9:00 to come around so I can go to bed

The Ambum bottle is in the kiln and should be ready for saggar firing tomorrow. I finished another pair of Sea Monkey Salt & Pepper shakers for a TCer and finished sculpting another Raiders skull mug for a friend.

Tonight I started a tiki project I've been wanting to do for a couple of years. John-O may recognize it, it's the logo from the
"El Tiki" restaurant I worked at as a kid. I want it to look like the 1960s vintage mug that never existed ~ single color, maybe a crackle glaze on the outside, on the back I'll put "El Tiki Imperial, Calif." using the old abbreviation instead of the current CA.


I like sculpting ceramic clay better than plastacine or wax so I'm making the master from Laguna EM347. I have decide if I want to make the mold from wet clay or from a bisque fired piece.

I know not of the restaurant, or the Raiders mug, or the sea monkey shakers, but I look forward to seeing them all!
