Thanks David (Bowie). It's always very flattering to receive a compliment from such a talented ceramicist as yourself.
Thank you Tiki Tonie. I am flattered again by your comment.
Thanks SandraFremgan. I have come a long way since then and now own my own kiln and do all my work at home.
El Jefe, cheers buddy. I'm pretty happy with the moai myself.
Thanks TikiAno. That particular one is probably my most favourite version of this new design. Besides the one coming up.
Thank you Lori. I enjoy making the volcano bowls. Especially when they turn out exactly as i would like them to.
Thank you very much Wendy. I had a very hectic trip this time so time didn't allow it, although i am looking at coming back for Tiki Oasis in 2015.
Beachbumz, thanks my friend. I was shattered when i saw the cracks in that bowl. Personally one of my most favourite pieces i've made so far. And you're welcome for the pendant.
Well it's not often i post again so close to the last time that i did, but with the Mai Tai Crawl coming up i've been keeping busy to keep the kiln full to make it worth while firing.
First up are a few more Unholy Rabble wall hangings.
A few more pendants.
Here's another Brigadier VF1 bowl. (Unfortunately i damaged the mold for the volcano and need to make another one).
Another Lance Corporal Stoney. This is a fountain version with the mouth cut out and has fortunately sold.
I also glazed a few more Corporal Punishment mugs. I actually have several of these already bisque fired but because i've been working on other stuff they have fallen by the wayside. (Both white ones are supposed to be crackle glazes but they have not crackled at all. I need to speak to my supplier and find out why that hasn't happened).
And finally a few more of my new design, Staff Sergeant Nuoai. I try to make all my mugs 1/1's now and although the first two have the same glaze colours, the difference in the carving details is enough for me to seperate them. Thankfully i have sold both of these also.
This particular one i think i'm keeping for myself. I'm extremely happy with this glaze.
That's it for the moment although there's a good chance there will be another update soon as i have a bunch of stuff that is already bisque fired and i need to get a few pieces ready so i have to get motivated to glaze.
