Thank you my fine friends Heath, you're funny!

I got 2 El Tiki mugs done and glazed but I gave them away before I took a picture I've got several more cast and drying, pictures someday

Bisque fired the Bonepile, need do a little aging and refire then string them together. It took a while to dry as some of the pieces are an inch thick solid clay. I'll need to jazz up the solar light on top some, maybe some PNG designs or something?

It so funny how the hole in the skull makes him look cross eyed in this photo. What a fun idea. This really should go in a man cave. Wendy

Thank you Wendy & Jon

Here's a shot of my kiln loaded to capacity - 6 mugs


And here they are in various glaze colors ready to go back into the kiln


I can't compete with Wendy for output so I have to try to beat her in quality vs quantity. No, I don't stand a chance there either. Well at least I have more fun. Hmm, that's also probably not true. Uhmmm..."If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself"

All finished firing the Headhunter Bonepile Windchime. I antiqued it in gray and left it unglazed. Being low fire clay and unglazed. it probably won't last as long, maybe only a couple hundred years before it returns to the dust. This is not the final configuration, just messing around to see how the bones hang. I made channels inside the bones to string them on but this cord is to fat to fit.

Can't wait to see how your mugs look after the glaze firing!

Mike when you get here for your visit I'm laying you down on the psych couch and doing an analysis of how you became MadDog. We love this mug. We are so happy to have one in our future. I'm excited to see all the colors and what you choose for us. Hugs Bunny, Wendy

Hilda, it will be headed your way as soon as I find some appropriate string to hold it together.
Jon, you live in the desert. You know all you have to do it turn off the AC for a couple of hours and the house becomes a blast furnace.
Wendy, there is no explaining why I am the MadDog!
Lori, here ya go. Still working on glaze combinations, some are rather boring ~ I may have to borrow a page from Wendy's book and spice some of these up with bake-on paint. Looks like my local Michael's stopped selling them so I'll have to get online.


Light Turquoise & Mediterranean Olive


Butter Toffee, Sea Mist Green & Mocha Cream


Autumn, Spiced Cream & Celadon Crackle

My favorite is the Celadon, looks like an old crazed mug. Crackle finish on the outside and non-crackle foodsafe on the inside. I've got another 6 mugs drying so I'll try some new combinations
