Thanks to your well-wishes, John Frum looks like he may be recovering after his arse transplant. Letting him dry ever so slowly. Lil Losers #1-4 are finished


I decided since #5 was named, the rest should have names too. Left to right:
#1 - Boney
#2 - Pennybags, from Rich Uncle Pennybags the Monopoly Man
#3 - Kina, the Tok Pisin (PNG) word for his oyster shell nose ornament
#4 - Jocko, the walrus on "50 First Dates"

SWEET!! Perfect mugs for your lounge area.

Still keeping my fingers crossed for John Frum.

There was once a head named John
No one knew where he was Frum
When he got wet he was gone
For he lost his bottom.
Poor old John Frum where?
Nobody knows, he is still going there.

Come on Mike you can give a snake in a basket mouth to mouth resuscitation, surely you can do surgery on an ass.

Love how the rest of the little tribe turned out, I gotta see a picture of someone drinking out of one.

Hey Mike!

Just took a gander at your recent pieces... The Barrel mug and Sea Snake mug are fantastic! Both great ideas with impeccable execution! (and I'm a sucker for tentacles)

The El Tiki mugs are great too! I like all of the different glazes.

The Li'l Losers (love that name!) are so cool! an you can do endless variations too!

Thanks for posting and keeping us inspired!

Dale, Tiger, Jon, Wendy, Eric, Dave & Lance - thank you very much

After a long, slow drying period John Frum survived firing He has some cracks on the inside where the bottom joins the sides but they are not structural and the glaze will help cover them. One of the dogtag chain beads got lost during drying, I replaced it with some paperclay and Magic Mender. Next to start glazing.

I need one more Lil Loser to complete my set ~ I think I'll do Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons. With flowers in her hair and maybe big red lips.

Working on a couple more projects for the Headhunter Harbor. First is going to be a mosaic table. He's a cute little guy I nabbed from the internet.



It will dry weighted between 2 pieces of plasterboard so that hopefully it dries without warping.

The second project is something new for me. I bought some decal sheets that are fired on to glazed ceramic. You print them in laser printer, the toner contains iron oxide which fuses with the glaze and makes a sepia colored image. The plan is to put them on some dollar store plates. $30 for 10 sheets is $3 per sheet, but I was able to print 15 decals on a sheet so that's not bad.


I will keep you posted on results

I'm so glad to hear Mr. Frum made it through the first firing.

I can't wait to see what the plates look like. Exciting new project. WOOHOO!!

See? I knew you could save Frum's bum.

I really like your tile pieces like you did on the benches previously. I am excited to see what you do with the shrunken head.

Friends, thank you so much for your support ~ you always make me smile.

The decal experiment worked out great, very nice product called Fired-On Images MS. I got mine from New Mexico Clay (their website is having a problem this morning so I can't post a link, I'll fix that later) More info at
www.fired-on.com Nice iron oxide coloring, picks up every detail. Seems to be permanent, it would not scratch off with my fingernail. Foodsafe, easy to use, etc. Says it works on glass too but would have to be fired, not sure how that would work out?

The decals have limited use for a sculptor but they would be great for adding your logo to the bottom of your pieces. A bowl, a dinner plate, and a salad plate from the dollar store along with about 25 cents worth of decal paper makes a cool custom place setting for $3.25 I suppose you could add a graphic to some fancy Pottery Barn plates or even your grandmother's Noritake china, but you might want to test fire one first

Before firing


After firing

(the part missing from the left of the first "H" was not a product flaw, I cut that off when cutting out the decal)
