Love the Christmas Card.
It's nice to know that the rest of your family is just as out there as you are!

And I really like the swap mug, man. A lot. I wouldn't think that you fired it so many times from seeing it, so thanks for putting up the process, and the progress shots. It also makes it a little special to know just how much went into making it, to really be able to appreciate it.

Aloha!

Marlene, you should see that bird when the wind blows ~ it really makes me smile
Lori, any gal who loves explosives is my kinda gal
Jon, thank you
Hale, the nut doesn't fall far from the tree
Chris, so good to have you back - hope the midwest winters aren't treating you too badly!

Got my second project done for the "Sea Creatures of the South Pacific" Art Swap done. "Inspired by" or a "parody of" the Islander Cobra's Fang mug


I present the Yellow Bellied Sea Snake Fang mug.



It's a pretty good sized mug, 4.5x8 inches, holds 30 ounces.

Mike, that one is amazing... too. Are you making multiple pieces for the art swap just so that you can move in on my getting all of them? And Hang10 (by mistake, of course).

I look forward to meeting you and receiving tons of clay-making advice!

Hale and Chris, thank you very much.
David, I'll only swap one of my projects. I am looking forward to meeting you too one of these days but not sure how much clay wisdom I'll be able to share; I seem to be at an age where I'm forgetting more than I remember and I didn't know that much to start with!

I finally finished up the Bonepile Windchime. I ended up stringing it on some 50 pound braided fishing line. I have never made anything like this before so I don't know how it will hold up? The wind may be too much and bang the bones to pieces? Or the ceramic may rub and abrade the string? Only time will tell Now I have to figure out how to pack it for shipping



BTW, the red eyes to the left of the femur are taillights on the highway

Wendy & Hilda, thanks you
Will, great ideal about the coffin In the final analysis I ended up with a boring cardboard box and lots of bubble wrap.

Captain Hook's Nemesis - This is not tiki and not even very artistic since I'm making it with someone else's mold, but what the heck. I saw a big 3-piece concrete crocodile for $50 and thought it would be great in the grass under my pirate ship tree house. Then I looked on eBay and saw molds for a smaller version for $30 then I can make a whole family of crocs! But instead of concrete, I'm trying to make it out of slabs of ceramic clay pressed into the molds. Glaze on ceramic will last forever whereas paint or stain on concrete would have to be re-done every few years. I plan to do the croc in a matte finish glaze and the eyes bright and glossy. After it is all fired and glazes, I'll pour the back full of concrete to make it solid. Each piece is about 10-13 inches long, overal croc (with some space in-between the pieces) with be about 4 feet. If it works I may have to make a Papua New Guinea inspired croc to atone for the non-tikiness of this one

Mike- wind chime came out cool.
I had one of those 3 set croc stepping stones in my yard yrs ago, nice to see I making one.
You should carve a few fingers to spread around near the head, or a few bones near the back, lol.


Ps- at work a couple days ago I walked past the area where they set out all the boxes to recycle and there was a big wooden crate box 3x3 feet or so, and the first thing I thought of was: wow, Mike would do something cool with that.

Jon
