Thanks Hale. The Ambum Bottle is finished, the copper wire left some interesting marks ~ I'll have to experiment with that again sometime.


More progress on the El Tiki mug

Mike El Tiki is so much fun. How great to have a mug specific to your town. That's why I love doing the Sacramento Crawl mug. You've done an outstanding job. I'm so happy that you are working so many hours just so we can enjoy all that you create. Cheers, Wendy

The El Tiki one is looking very cool. Really like your experiments with "burning materials" on the firings.

I am not sure which idea terrifies me more: that you had two photos of yourself in Chinese coolly dress lying around to do that photoshop pic in, or that you have a twin willing to pose for your artistry.

When do we see more pics of the good ship mad dog pop? I mean the pirate ship? I am sure tater tot and crew are excited to "set sail" on such an incredible craft.

Attention MadDogMike you should make the El Tiki mold because Dan is first in line for one of these. He wants to drink from it as he does his Rosetta Stone Spanish lessons. It's a terrific mug. Wendy

Pirate Ship Tree House (it wouldn't copy)

I just clicked on your link for the pirate ship and saw your flooded backyard photo. That was so cool.

I love the MadDogMike Show. Cheers, Wendy

Robert, Wendy, Bumz, Jon, & Tiger - Thank you!
Atomic Chick - I had fun with those

I have not forgotten you guys, I have been busy making a parade float for my hospital. Not hardly Rose Bowl material but we did get the trophy for the commercial division

Haven't done anything on the pirate ship since the time change. Hopefully next weekend. Wendy, that flooded back yard is an effect from
http://www.lunapic.com - it looks pretty real.

I have done some work on the El Tiki mug. I am making the master from bisqued, unglazed ceramic. The sculpt is done and fired and I am starting on the mold. Not sure exactly how this will work out Bowana suggested I shellac the bisqued ceramic, which I have done, and use lots of mold soap. We'll see.

Working on some ideas for the Sea Creatures of the South Pacific Art Swap. Also getting ready to start on a Headhunter's Bonepile Wind Chime for one of my TC friends.

I haven't exactly been resting on my laurels, but I don't have anything exciting to show you yet
EDIT - OK, one pic just to prove I'm not lying to you

Looks like the mold was a success. I should know before the end of the week
They don't recommend that you apply heat to your plaster molds but it's winter and it could take until April to dry! I have a forced air cabinet at work is only about 100 or 110 degrees, it would be dry by the end of the week.

2 days in the warm air dryer and my mold was dry enough to use so I cast a mug tonight, I'll find out tomorrow how good my mold is.

I started working on a Headhunter's Bonepile Windchime for my friend HilTiki



I've got a skull, femur, radius & ulna, scapula, clavicle, four vertebrae and a hand. The skull is slipcast from a mold, the rest are formed from paperclay. Since the fiber in paperclay helps wick the moisture to the outside, thick objects like these can be allowed to dry faster without cracking.

The plan is to hang the bones from the skull. A solar light in the top of the skull will illuminate the eyes at night as well as shine some light down on the hanging bones. I have just realized that the femur is probably too long to fit in my kiln I'll have to fire it in someone else's kiln

Wow, I could recognize all the bones, good job. I wish we could hear them in the wind. Wendy
