I see the leash on the bird drum mug. I was wondering if you were/ when you were going to do that. When I planned on making this mug years ago I got that light bulb idea to do the leash the same way Benzart made his necklace braids. Mixed media mugs have a higher quality feel to them.

I just had the best time looking at your art. I had missed the rat being eaten by the cobra, horrors. We are just so happy to have your work in our collection. We just returned from Oregon it's time for me to talk to you, I'll call soon, Wendy

Every so often I got back to admire your work. I always see another detail I missed before. Your detail work is so fine. I was surprised today that I had missed your daughter's wedding cake matching the hut you built for the ceremony. What a lucky daughter to have you for a dad. Hugs, Wendy

I never really got the bunnies either. All i know is that over the years whenever I've crossed paths with the bunny pieces they've made me happy. I have the same reaction to Kenny's work. Fertile like the imagination from whence they came, I hope they continue to multiply.

As for your work in general, Mr Babalu, you don't just raise the bar... you're a game changer! I don't know how you channel that creative energy, but if you ever figure out a way to bottle it I want some!

Mahalo!

Been quite awhile bro but you and Bowana are ceramic legends beyond reproach, and damned if I don't miss the chops with you guys! Hope all is well for you and the chops still survive!

He updated his facebook photo today and it shows him working on a mug!
A few years back he retired and started working with Squid and Bowana on lots of ceramic projects.
Then his old job called. They had hired 5 guys to replace him and it still wasn't working.
They offered him a deal he couldn't resist and so he went back to work.
We can only hope he'll retire and once again bring us his wonderful ceramic art.
