The next art show at the Tonga Hut in either late March or early April will feature hand-built, one-of-a-kind art. So, all of you artists that have been slinging some mud at Babalu's, you have until late March or early April (no set date yet) to get stuff finished. And all of you Tiki art connoisseurs, have until that time to save your pennies for some nice one-of-a-kind art. No mold-poured mugs, and no prints. Only originals.

GROG, how many times do you need to post the same thing? Do I have to report you for abuse?
Abuse is considered: "Flooding" the window with nonsensical or repetitive text Having a litle trouble with TC this afternoon?

I'm working on sketches and buying new glazes, hoping to come up with something worthy of the show

Damned TC, wouldn't respond when GROG hit submit.

Textile arts works, too. (Unless you have a sweatshop of poor illegal aliens in back all sewing for you.)

Artists who want to participate have to be there to sell their art or have somebody do it for you (not GROG). It's only a one night art show, from 7 to midnight.

Glad to see your going to give it a go GoGo...there's a lot of mana in a ceramic work that has not been formed using any type of slip casting. Come on down with the rest of the crew if you get a chance! I would love to play in the studio with ya.

Thanks for the invite, Sounds fun, I'm all ready very busy in my studio! I know the Mana! My friend, I make a lot of single art pieces, All my art starts as sculpted pieces, Except for the re-pop items I make, Every item I make has to be sculpted first, Usually as a solid piece, As a master sculpt before it is made into a mold, For free style mugs sometimes, I'll wrap clay around a cylinder to start with too, Still it's kinda molded to start with in a since! I myself don't intended to carve a piece of clay hollow myself! I also made a way to make cylinders by extruding clay, My secret! I might spin some stuff on the wheel to start also! But yes I agree that there is nothing better than self expression than a single art piece, Mahalo! Gogo

That's cool Dani, I would love to see some of your "thrown" work sometime. I had plenty of oppurtunity to learn how to throw way back when, and passed up taking any real time learning the craft in favor focusing on other types of clay hand constuction methods. I could just never get into the whole Zen experience of throwing I guess..still, there's always time to go back and learn if I wish...

Sorry, but I don't understand what you mean by having an extruding secret?? There's a ka-zillion models of extruders on the market that allow one to extrude almost any type of clay cylinder they wish...hollow or solid, at almost any diameter one might need?? If I could afford one, I'd have one for sure. I think Henrik has one...lucky dog.

example:
http://www.clayworld.com/extruders/

Do you mean you made a secret hand made extruder that does something these don't? I once made a big ass press using the weight of my car...now that was fun :-)
