Well, I've been busy, so I haven't had a chance to work on my sculpt for an original mug. However, I did work on a new batch of stuff for the Hale Pele's Polynesian Plaza event that's coming up soon.


Here's my stuff in process:

I have 11 new pieces ready for glaze fire (two Standing Tikis in Mystic Blue, three Moai in Mystic Blue, two Skulls in Mystic Blue, a red Skull with Mystic Blue drip, two Skulls with a rub-off stain finish in Mahogany Brown, and one Skull in a rub-off stain finish of Winter Blue).

I like how the rub-off stain is working. I used that on my last hand-built project. Shows details REALLY well.

Here's close-ups:

The firing schedule is pretty tight, but I'm hoping to pick up four more pieces and get them glazed and turned around before the show. Here are the pieces that should be back from bisque fire soon:

The ashtray is from a new Holland Mold I just acquired. It gave me a chance to use one of the pin-up girls as a slipcast mold as intended instead of as a press mold which is what I've been doing so far. The detail is much better as a slipcast piece. I think I will glaze the ashtray in my yellowish-brown rust glaze, use the Mystic Blue on the water, and use the mahogany wipe-away on the pin-up. Should look good.

Anyway, that's the update. More pics soon after the glaze fire. Thanks for looking.
