Wendy,

As per your suggestion, I posted up a step by step on building a form like this (though smaller) here:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=44206&forum=18&0

It's my first step by step (though I've read a bunch), look forward to feedback/advice!

Thanks!

Grungiki, bisque fired. Waiting for Stachetiki (and a few other pieces) to come out of the kiln. Thought I was going with one glaze pre-firing, now a bit unsure.... does this happen to anyone else?

First peek out of the kiln. Pretty excited, new glaze combo (blue exterior w/ orange interior), looks great. More photos to come...

StacheTiki glazed pics:





The orange interior glaze melted a little bit over the side, but I'm pretty happy overall with the new blue glaze. Would love any feedback/thoughts from all.

I dig it.
Don't be afraid to brush on a few layers to really get it to pop.
Looking good!

Thanks, Hale Tiki. It was the first time using a new glaze (without testing it first). I brushed on three coats, maybe an extra one next time around, though I admit I kinda like the "washed" effect.

Wanted to post an update to the Grungiki mug/ decanter (it's pretty darn large). Finally got him glazed and fired. Unfortunately, the toothpick I had in his earring hole burned up too early in the firing, have to drill out the little bit of glaze that is sealing the hole up (admittedly, slightly nervous about cracking the ear). A few new pieces in the works, will start a new thread with a number of photos at once (since each piece is taking a while to finish up). Would love any feedback, as always.
