Ok folks, here's my first attempt at a tiki mug for my home bar.

Shown along with a Kowloon Pineapple for scale.

Nice looking stuff Pikey. I really like the Brain Drain concept and the offering will look great with some glaze on it.

Thanks for the feedback.

The 'Offering' has yet to be underglazed - the colours present are coloured slip that was put on the bowl prior to biscuit firing.

I've already painted the tiki with a chocolate brown underglaze.


The Moai has been underglazed in Juniper Green and Chocolate Brown to create a mottled "mossy" effect.
The interior of the bowl underglazed in Rapid Red (running over the sides) to create a Volcano effect (the sides are black). I've still got to add some more Brown to the Moai, and some Orange to the 'Lava'

From one dog to another: lookin' good! "The Offering" would make a good mini-fountain with a little plumbing and a pump.

Nice glaze work. There's something magic about putting a piece in the kiln with a dry matte glaze on it and having it come out all smooth and shiny and warm - I never get tired of that

I like the scroll and raised letters on the Moku Hei Hei Mug
