Beautiful work, all around. Love the variety.... even the (hush!) non-tiki work!

Love your take on Moais, especially how you're able to showcase your style within different designs....

Can't wait for the next ITMP. Love me some Wendy and Dan!
Thanks tiki Ano.
Here's a Maori bust I worked on last week.
It's built with coils of Rod's Bod clay.
I think it's about 15" tall and about 10-12" wide and has 17 lbs of clay.










From here, it's about 3 weeks of slow drying.
If all goes as planned, the eyes will be inlaid with shell and I'll make a Hei-tiki pendant to wear and cover the plain spot in the middle of the chest.
Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous. That's a lot of coils. I hope you're extruding them???

Your work continues to impress all of us. Fantastic.

Aloha Tiki Hula, Tiki Republic, ATP, & Tiki Ano,
Thank you for stopping by and for your kind words.
TA - I didn't use the extruder. The coils are thick, so it wasn't that bad, but, I still coiled 17 lbs of clay.
I've been drying the bust really slowly, but discovered a crack in the bottom two days ago, but, it was still wet enough to hopefully fix. Fingers crossed.
So, here's some new stuff.
Here's four more Moai in my series that are drying. They're #4-7.


Here's #3 finished.



Some sgraffito work I've been doing.

Finished moonshine jug.


And, an Easter Island diorama inside one of my wheel thrown coconuts. Still in progress


I'm still updating my IG daily. #junglemodern

Love the sgraffito Mike, I need to do some of that again. The coconut diorama is very cool

Thanks, Mike!
Here's one of the lidded jars with a tapa design that I did sgraffito. It's white underglaze on Black Mountain clay while wet greenware and dipped in super clear after bisque.



Some big Moai that I built with various clays.


Some lidded coconut jars.




Some PNG pieces that are ready for glaze firing.



Various finished pieces.






Work in progress.
