Looks really cool! I like the cannibal. I will buy some stuff in august for sure. I live in San Diego, so let me know what you might want for decor and I will see what I can do.



WOW, Thanks! We will have a double booth and the second side is mainland folks, so if we can't get what we need from them, I'll let you know. I'll be meeting with them in July to see what they can bring for us.

A big ALOHA from Maui!

See you there!

Aloha, Tiki friends....

I'm cranking out tikis and not participating on TC. For that I'm sorry, but I'm going to make it my new years resolution to keep up with all you creative people.

I just finished a project that I thought I'd share.

After seeing the exploding Lava sphere that the discovery channel is using with their logo, I was inspired to do a high contrast black and yellow Lava Moai mug.

I started by adding some dimension to the bottom part of the mug.
and blending it into the mug with cracks.



I did a quick Computer rendering to see how I wanted to do the colors:



Then came the glazing. I started with yellow then added orange around the lava chunks. I painted red glaze on the edges of the lava and mixed a bumpy black lava for the surfaces. The two tones of black were sprayed last. Overall it took several hours to glaze.



I popped it in the kiln and 24 hours later here it is!



Crazy, I'm already thinking of ways to do it faster and better for the next one.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Thanks LorilovesTiki and Hang10Tiki.

I'll do my best to keep up with TC. I'm hoping to have some more cool stuff to show over Christmas break.

ALOHA!

I really appreciate the amount of work it took to do that glazing. I'm so happy that it turned out so well. Beautiful. Wendy
