Looking good Mike. I like the Butter Toffee also but the Sea Mist Green is pretty cool too.

I really enjoy the mug, but man, every time I see it, I think that it's one UGLY lookin tiki. Hahhaa. I've seen worse with some of the modern faux-tiki, but that has a whole other slightly racist/culturally insensitive vibe that was totally normal at the time the place was open.

Mike,

Thanks for posting pictures, I couldn't wait to see them! My 2 cents for what it's worth is that I prefer the glazes that darken the low spots, creases, whatever you call them and then lighter on the rest of the mug. I'm about as far from an expert as you can get but I think an antiqued effect would be cool. So that being said my favorite (I think) is Sea Mist Green and Butter Toffee.

But being female I reserve the right to see what else you're going to produce before giving my final verdict! Excellent work.

Real nice stuff that is right there, MadDog. I like the crackle effect, too.

Wishing everyone a MadDog Christmas!


One of the benefits of a my small kiln is that I can afford to fire it as often as I like. Sometime I will fire a piece several times to make it easier to glaze.

Here is a mug for the "Sea Creatures of the South Pacific" Art Swap. In order to keep from getting glaze where I didn't want it, I fired it 3 times. First I put underglaze on the greenware and bisque fired it.


Next I put the crystal glaze on the octopus, the underglaze on the barrel rings, gloss black on the inside, clear gloss on the blowfish and fired it again


Then I brushed it with grey and wiped most of it off. Since the octopus and rings had already been fired, it was easy to wipe any stray glaze off. After that came a clear satin glaze on the barrel.


The finished product

Jon, I'll see if I can't hook you up

Got a great Christmas gift for the lanai I wanted to share with you. A wind chime from Cost Plus World Market, it is a Papua New Guinea bird (as far as you know). The body is a coconut and the head bobs and sways when the wind blows ~ he makes me smile
