You can check out Kristina's wildlife ceramics here, she can more than handle the complexity of the Bowl paint.

Thanks for looking,

I checked out the site and was blown away. Incredible work, a perfectionist with talent. I'm just so impressed what can I say. Everyone should take a look. I'm going to work harder and practice more, cheers, Wendy

AWESOME! I was so worried about that firing. I'm so glad to see she made it. What a great thread to follow.

Thanks for the update!

She's getting some color and becoming the Mystery Girl!

This project has been very long and arduous. We started out believing we could produce this piece, the most complex and detailed piece done in our Tiki community, maybe ever, for a price that would be also incredible. That's not seeming to be possible now.

Here we are many months into it, and all the manufacturers we have approached have either flat out said no, or given us a price quote that is essentially the same thing.

Kristina is talented and brave enough to tackle this project, and her pieces are likely going to be the only ones of this full on Mystery Girl bowl that are made. We will produce the Mini Mystery Bowl, and we are working on a retooled version of the Girl that we think we can get produced for a reasonable amount.

Kristina may have the prototype done within the week, and looking to have the first few ready to sell by Hukilau! More designs and products to be unveiled as well.

It's been a great project and big thanks to Paul and Kristina for their talent and work to make it happen. By Oasis, we should have a lot to show you all!

That last picture makes the mug look a little smaller. You could certainly charge more than $80 because a lot of mugs that have little work involved but just were a home run with their appeal and lower numbers of even 100 go for more. The Mai Kai restaurant could use some of those Mystery girls for sure

Wow Swanky! - I'm in LOVE!

Not with you, pal - with that work of art! I was blind, but now I see. The mystery has been revealed to me!
