Hey look! New Tainted Tiki Mugs that have been thrown on a wheel then carved by hand. These guys are in the greenware stage and awaiting a first firing. Bad lighting on some pics. Working on new mugs. Wuwu!

I like that idea; wheelthrown then carved

You must make them pretty thick to start with. The 3rd one is my favorite, very detailed

Very nice work, never seen anything quite like 'em - did you get your name from "The Yum Yum books" by R. Crumb?

Can't wait to see these finished.

Heyo, thanks for the comments. These are thrown pretty thick, about 1/4 to 1/3 thick. The name is a combination of Asian snack foods that I think are hilarious

Having comp problems with uploading some new images. Three new mugs and a bowl. The bowl was thrown with a brown clay and the feet are a white clay. Teeth are based loosely off of shark teeth. Fan of all the war clubs and other weapons. More up next week. Check back soon.

I love the multiple clay effect on the bowl. Last night I started a monkey made from Soldate 60 (yellowish), porcelain (white), and a dark brown Laguna WC373. We'll see if it works out.

Yummy,

The bowl is to die for! Love, love the feet's...do you have your own ceramics studio? It would be killa to see a picture of it. I really dig seeing other peoples work spaces.

Great work!

Just finished this last nite. Pattern was carved by hand. I have been looking at pictures of megalodon shark teeth. That's where the idea of the feet came from, although they are alot smaller. This thing is extremely fragile at the moment and I am trying to dry it out very slowly. Set it up for some QUICK pics, they aren't that great. Will get some more after it is bisque fired.





As for the work space issue, we just throw some newspaper down on the dining room table and get to work. Clean up with a dustbuster. I will get a pic up soon, lol.
Wheel work is done outside in the driveway. Clean up's a breeze.
