Aloha,

John, I've been trying to find a match glaze for the Hoffman pieces. This one is close but, not close enough. My B-Day is 2 days before the Ides of March.

Tigertail, I did have a piece blow up in the kiln, a very costly experience. I worked on a Mermaid laying upon a cliff, large piece with lots of detail, my Dad wanted me to make a bronze out of it, which of course I had no idea how that process goes. Anyway, this was about 12 years ago, I found a place that would fire her but, she blew up! The only thing left was the end of her tail. So that kinda ended my sculpting for about 10 years. Now I feel like I'm on fire, I love it and can't get the pieces in my head brought to reality fast enough! I've switched to cone 5 clay maybe for that reason, I can go a little thicker in some places and so far have had good luck. That being said I hope I haven't jinxed myself. I do hold my breath and pray till they get through the bisque fire. I always try to dig out the thicker parts and make sure to have a blow hole, like the belly button, a mouth or underneath Santa's Sarong!

On to yesterday, there was a very creepy post on my thread that kept me off of here till Craig got home, when he went to check it for me, it was thankfully gone. Can anybody tell me what that was all about. Just curious.

Anyway I did another Coco~Loco Island about twice as big and more attention to detail. I didn't take during pictures because of the post freaking me out. Here is the final piece although I do see some places where I could do a little more tweaking!













Thanks for stopping by and for all your supportive comments, except for creepy guy!

Mahalo Y'all,
Linda

Was the creepy guy named Jimmy something? He was a spammer, anytime you see something funky like that you can send a PM to Hakalugi and he'll take care of it for you.

Like to new Joe, looks like he's had a few too many!

Aloha,

Thanks MDM I sent you a pm. Yes the Creepy Guys name was Jimmy something! My Sister had a name for Creepy Guys, with arms above her head she would do her best impression of a penis and call them all "dick heads". I hope that this post doesn't offend anybody and / or get me kicked off of TC. Anyway, I had Karen in my head today, inspiration comes from the strangest places...
I got my cylinder

I'll start with the foreskin is this just to weired?

I hope Creepy Guy chokes...does this make me "creepy"?

The Bartender in me sees a "Cocktail Shaker" oh come on, now that's funny!

I cut the top off, sorry boys. Make a rim around the bottom of the um, fore mentioned.

Keep checking for fit, I'm not even going there!

Use cling wrap to keep it from sticking. OMG, really!

And there you have it! My Cocktail Shaker...


His name is Dick Head


Thank you so much for stopping by, I truly hope I didn't offend anyone! Except Creepy Guy!

Mahalo Y'all,
Linda

OMG umeone, you are too funny! I can't wait to show this to Dan. I was thinking your guy lying on his back needed a bit of a crotch bulge but I wouldn't mention that. Then I get to the next set of photos, believe me I'm laughing as I type.

Thanks Wendy, I must tell you I am relieved to have your approval! I thought maybe the TC Police would come and get me for posting porn!

You get in more trouble for posting something non-tiki non-porn than you do for tiki porn

Very interesting Linda! And don't worry about Creepy Jimmy - the spammers come through and post their spam on random threads. He posted the same spam in 3 or 4 other random threads too, it didn't have anything to do with you. Hakalugi deleted the spam and canceled his account.

Your larger more detailed Coco Loco Island is awesome. The Dick Head one is hilarious I was cracking up with your descriptions... you need a hole in the top to put a straw through so the head can be sucked on...or maybe in this case it would be more of a blowing job than a sucking one? Well as long as it doesn't blow in the kiln I guess it will be fine.

Aloha,
I got everything glazed and to the Kiln without any mishaps!

I've started a miniature Mystery Bowl. Haven't got very far.

I need a little hammock for one of my Islands.

It's like MAGIC when you pull stuff from the kiln, they go in dull & oddly colored and come out bright & shiny. I never get tired of that

Great stuff Linda, Mia turned out well and I like the colors on the bird, nice blending.

WOW! Super stuff there Linda! I love tiki mug island, especially the bird mug and the yellow tiki mug. M.I.A turned out really good too, I did not picture it being black but it really works great. I really like the "salt and pepper" glaze you use for the sand on the islands. The turtle bowl is very cool. Looks like your really getting into having fun with your art, which is always good to see.
