These two projects came out great MDM, working with the uncertainties of kilns and clay would drive me to drink. The volcanic work is beautiful!

That's pretty good for a guy your age.

Don't be ashamed of the size of your kiln. It's not the size that matters, it's what you do with it.

The snake hut is fun. Good job. GROG like.

Wendy, the lids are usually not too bad if you make and fire them at the same time as the mug. Then they should shrink the same
Cy, it does drive me to drinking sometimes
TU, glad the Spice Girl approve
Jon & Hilda, thank you
GROG & Swizzle, you guys are too funny Glad to see both of you here.

GROG, I'm not as active with clay as I once was but still do several projects a year. Some of them are not Tiki so they don't get posted but I find clay (and being creative in general) to be good for my mental health

I am DETERMINED to get this Krakatoa mug technique worked out. Working on two more now, so far I've figured out about 5 ways NOT to do it

I absolutely love that Krakatoa idea. So clever.

I have no artistic talents whatsoever outside of music so apologies if this is a stupid question. I was wondering: would it be possible to create a base that the two pieces attach to so that it's all one piece? This way it's more of a glass holder, which would make washing up much easier with constant use - just slide the glass out, clean, and slide back in.

I recently saw a mug that acted as a sheath for an inner glass that actually held the cocktail, which is what gave me the idea. I don't think it's quite as nice of an idea as your current one, but was thinking that it might be easier.

Thanks HopeChest. My first one I tried to make as a sleeve/glass holder but it is really difficult for me to control the amount of shrinkage- too many variables. This first one turned out just a little smaller than I planned and luckily I was able to find a glass that was just slightly smaller so it fit.

Now I'm making the pieces separate and gluing them to the glass, but the whole thing can still be immersed for washing. It also gives a bigger space for the "lava" to shine through while still maintaining the look of volcanic rock


EDIT - HopeChest, do you remember what the mug was that served as a sleeve? I'd like to see how it looks

Cool, thanks guys. They used a plastic inner glass which is smart. Keeps the glass and the ceramic sleeve from rattling against each other.
