Wendy... Beachbumz and I made it through the Tsunami. We both live high enough up that it didn't effect us. BeachBumz shop is low but I don't think the water made it to his shop. Close, but not quite there.

I started work on your bowl, I didn't for get about you!

Good news with so much bad news out there. I'll have to contact Mike, I know his house is high but his day job is on the water.

I'm excited about my bowl. Beachbumz I need one from you too. (: Wendy

Got three mugs out of the kiln this morning. I promised I'd post a photo of this one. Sorry the photo is kind of dark. I can't re-take it, 'cause it's already on its way to his new home.



More photos of the other two mugs this weekend!

Hey Rob,
Just received my custom mug and it is awesome, this is your best ever!!! The glaze colors and texture make this mug look & feel like it's chiseled from an ancient jungle tree. The fishermans hook is like whalebone and the interior like molten lava. And Maui is its own special place on the back of the mug. Fantastic. Thank you my friend!
Mahalo

SeaDawg - Glad it made it to you so quickly (and in one piece). I'm happy to have it in your collection. You can put the mugs together and see how I've progressed in my mug making over the past year.

Although I really love this design and customizing it, I'm going to force myself to move on to a new design. I have several in the works, but not 100% confident with any of them. I just need to take the time and finish one up and make a new mold. For me the sculpting of the original is the hardest part.

I do have one more custom Carson mug I like to call "my little monkey Skull" in the customizing stage. Inspired by Munktiki's "my little shrunken head" mug.

I still need to post photos of my first Kaikaina Lava Cinders mug that I started a couple months back. So much to do...So little time...

Oooh Wendy, I wish I had more time in the day. I own my own business and we are super busy right now, plus Little League Baseball is in full swing and my son has 3 games a week. With all the rain we've been having my yard is becoming a jungle. Not a controlled Jungle like your jungle room, but an overgrown tropical rainforest. I spent a good part of Saturday preparing a 30+ foot tall fan palm for cutting down, mu truck is overflowing with yard trimmings (I hop to make it to the green waste dump today). Just think of the tiki's I'll be able to carve from the 30 foot tall palm trunk! I'm planning on saving a few 6 foot tall sections for tiki's!! Maybe I can get Beachbumz over to carve one too.

Good news is I did work on Tiki ceramics last night, working on a new sculpt and started the glaze process for my "SKULL" mug.

Here is a crappy photo from my phone...
