Awesome! And you win the Greatest Test Tile Ever Made award! The glaze on the shells is spot on.

EB & Hilda - thank you
Henrik - I'm not a patient man, the test tile got pitched and I just winged it Tried some wax resist for the cowrie spots and I like the way it turned out.
Wendy - when her "toes" dried out they shriveled like raisins; it wasn't pretty!

I used my croc head mold to make a nice thick skull (about 3/4 inch) out of some B Mix Paper Clay and just threw it out in the sun to dry - none of this slow drying to prevent cracks needed for paper clay. It is now the figurehead on the pirate ship bow.


I think that just about completes my Pirate Ship Tree House, at least for now. As the boys get a little older I will add things like an oversize pirate version of "You sunk my battleship!" with various wooden pirate ships and golf tees for pegs.

Mike, I knew if anyone could combine beauty and shrunken heads, it would be you. #6 turned out great.

Love the new figurehead on the pirate ship. That still ranks as one of my favorite build projects on here. What lucky grandkids to have such a cool grandpa.

- Dale

Dale, Kinny, & Jon - thank you so much.

Here is the "Ndaokus" Trophy Skull Mug for the
Cannibal Art Swap which ends next week.





The Asmat people of Papua New Guinea collected 2 types of skulls; the “Ndambirkus” or ancestral skull and the "Ndaokus" of trophy skull. The ancestral skulls were treated with respect and were carried or worn for protection, they were often used as a headrest or pillow so the protection would extend while sleeping. They had the lower jaw attached with twine. The trophy skulls were from vanquished enemies and were kept in the men's house, they had a hole in the side of the skull where the brain was removed and eaten. The lower jaw was removed from the skull and given to the women to wear as a necklace. It was considered the ultimate insult and humiliation to have your jawbone worn as a necklace!

This mug was inspired by PopTiki's Headhunter Chalice and is made from a slipcast skull with a ceramic "bamboo" pole extending up through the skull. There is a bat skull mounted on the back of the lid, the straw hole is inside the bamboo pole. Hanging from the back is a polymer clay talon with guinea fowl feathers and ceramic molar, incisor, and claw. The base is made from a slab of Eucalyptus wood coated with 2 part epoxy resin and a polymer clay rhinoceros beetle. The base had a large dowel on it which goes inside of the bamboo pole to secure the mug to the base. The mug lifts off the base like a chalice and the pole serves as a handle but you can't get too far from the base as the mug won't stand on it's own

Over the past year I have sent out MadDog birthday cards to several TC folks. A new card has been made and the old one is being retired, thought I would share it with you.

WOW!!! Mike!!! Way to go. Your take on a trophy skull is a trophy on it's own.
Thank you for the bump my friend, very cool.

Wow! Mike!
This is going to be the mug and the others you have made in the past that
tiki nuts collect.
You are makin stuff no other makes.
Totally your own design, and for the most part designs that have never
been done! and that's hard to do when its all been done.
Makes me want to pop of a light and get in that swap, just to have a shot at your mug.
Keep makin Mike.
Great Job!
