Cool glaze Mike. Reminds me of a Van Gogh painting (or a Don McLean song)

Thanks, Mike. I was pleasantly surprised by how the glaze came out. Hope to see you at TC!
Here's some more stuff.
These three pieces, also show how one glaze, matt black, can look on three different kinds of clay, applied in varying degrees.
WITCO inspired "firedancer" bowl. (Soldate 60)



The right side is matt black. The left has matt black with mag yellow and Korean blue celadon, I think. I am getting better at note taking.


Primitive 3 Faced Orongo Birdman Cult tumbler (Bmix with sand)


The Marquesan style is also glazed. (Bmix.)


Hope to see you all at Caliente!

All good stuff Mike. I like that firedancer graphic and the Marquesan is great ~ looks like torched wood carving.
I should be at TC Saturday afternoon and evening, are you going to be vending?

See you next Saturday. Yes, I will be vending. I'll be in the same spot as last year, by The Tonga Hut bar.

Great seeing everyone at Caliente! Thanks again to everyone who came by my booth to chat and made a purchase. It was great to catch up with old friends and make a lot of new ones.

I'll post something in the Market Place later, but I just wanted to post a link to my Etsy store, Jungle Modern Ceramics.

I chose the name Jungle Modern because I like it. To me, it has a bit of mysteriousness to it. "You never know what you're gonna find in the jungle." I've always been intrigued by the dense greenery of the forest and not knowing what might be behind the next layer of vegetation.

As I'm still new to ceramics, that's kind of how I feel about my pottery. There's still lots of other styles I'd like to explore and I'm not sure what's coming next. Maybe I'll make some Incan pottery inspired by my trip to Peru with some modern characteristics, who know?

I also have a decent amount of WITCO. Elvis's Jungle Room and Sven's book, Tiki Modern, have definitely influenced my collecting, so I also felt the name was appropriate.

Here's the link. Your feedback and constructive criticism is always appreciated.

Thanks for looking!

Nothing to criticize since it is all so well done. I like the look of stone on the marq.
We enjoyed seeing you and having you beat the trick was icing on the cake. Your mug is
now a part of the danlovestikis collection. Cheers, Wendy

Thanks Wendy! I'm happy to have a one of my pieces in the collection. As always, it was great visiting with you and Dan.
Did anybody else get the ring off and are you really gonna make me wait until next year to show me how to put it back on?

Mike it was good to see you at Tiki Caliente again. Your pieces look even better in person, photos just never seem to capture the subtleties

Mike, great seeing you, too.
ZS, thank you very much! Hopefully we'll see a few of those Marquesans floating around in the near future.
Here's a PNG piece in progress.

Thanks MP!
I just got her outta the kiln
Stands just shy of 9.5" tall and has a gloss red glaze on the inside.

DIG THE PNG! It almost looks like a mask! I love it. And your Marq sculpt almost looks like burnt bamboo. It's eerie, and very cool.
