Thanks. I like how it looks like an old piece carved wood with worn-out paint.

Yes, with the brackets, which are snug, no clamps are needed - just a bit of clay at the seams.

Thanks, Dale...

While I'm finishing up a few Topknot mugs, as well as older Volcano Sipper mugs, thought I'd jump to my next sculpt. Here he is, Peanut Jr.:



Yep, he's inspired by the PMP Peanut mugs. I didn't look at any reference while sculpting him, hence the funny feet and other non-standard traits. Why a PMP Peanut mug? - because they make swell night lights:



I'm made and sold a couple Peanut night lights. I wanted to make more, so I thought I'd sculpt something specifically lamp-like. Peanut Jr. will have his eyes, mouth, and little heart cut out and he'll be wired up with an orange bulb.

Some more crystalline glaze experimentation...



Plus, some fun salt and peppers shakers designed by my niece Alysa. She helped sculpt the lemon/lime and pour the mold.

Thanks. I really dig painting two dissimilar crystalline glazes on top of each other, then cold painting over the top of that with oil.

Here's a new venture...

As part of an Indiegogo campaign for a the "BedBugs" movie I'm working on, I'm offering custom Tiki mugs as a perk:

It's the $375 perk level... Check out the trailer - it's fun.

New mug in the works:



I call him "Que" after the Mar_que_sas and the fact he looks like he's saying "what?"

Thanks Beachbumz. Here's Que 1. It's always like Christmas when I open up the kiln in the morning. Never sure what crazy result I'll get by combining glazes...
