Thanks, guys!

I agree, especially on the mug I was thinking the wood pattern looked like waves and blue would look cool. However, I really wanted to work with stain since I haven't before. I'm not sure if Georgie's stocks a blue stain, but I will look for it.

The volcano is hollow. I didn't put up a pic of the bottom, but it is basically a smooth circle with my name and date scratched on it. I didn't want to poke holes in the base, although many ceramic pieces do that to let air/gas release during firing. So, after taking these shots I took a toothpick and poked 4 holes evenly around the middle of the volcano to let gas/air out. I can always plug them again, I figured, with slip or glaze.

I figure I'll take these over to get fired next Thursday. If I have time tonight or tomorrow I might try hand building an actual Tiki mug to go with these other pieces that are getting fired.
