Just back from Jury duty. Gotta glaze like a storm and hopefully fire early enough on Saturday to get it out of the kiln in time for vending on Sunday.

Here's the official icy-blue ribbon for the art show, to be awarded to "Best in SNOW", by popular vote... other cool prizes to be awarded too!


See everybody on Sunday!

Ceramics are in the kiln. Fewer than GROG was hoping to bring, and may be even fewer if all these don't turn out well in the firing. Hopefully they'll be cool enough to get out of the kiln to make it in time for the event.

Tony from Martini Kings will be joining us in the vending area vending his wares.

Here's two finished pieces for tomorrow... Tiki Bob bucket mugs!


These are the only new ceramics I'll have available, as tragedy struck with a catastrophic kiln malfunction and meltdown... runaway temperatures destroyed everything I was making for the show.

See the pic below for what became of them (I labeled the blobs for easy identification.) The pieces that weren't reduced to puddles were deformed with huge cracked blisters, and almost all the pieces were fused to the shelves.

I had two Bob buckets in the works but not complete in time for this firing, which saved them from the massacre... which are the two pictured on top.

See everybody tomorrow!

Got stuff out of the kiln, so for the first time GROG will actually be early to the Tonga Hut to set up. A number of things didn't quite come out as expected, so they will have to stay home and wait to be touched up and refired, but GROG have a few things to bring. Hopefully GROG will make enough to buy a few drinks. Looking forward to seeing everybody, listening to BTD Christmas tunes, tasting some cookies in the cookie/dessert contest, and watching the Glasgow Tiki Shakers perform.

Vending starts at 2pm.


See you at the Tonga Hut.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I got there at the end, but was greeted warmly (literally) with a hot buttered rum (THANK YOU, JOE BANKS) and cheering hugs from Queen Kamehameha, Grog, Eric October and Manuel, plus lots of other good cheer from Tonga Tom & Sheriyaki, Sandra Dee and, of course, the awesome Marie. Made my weekend, let me tell you that right now.

Grog puts on best time. Grog know how to party.

Thanks everyone, and Eric! Your Tiki snowflakes ROCK!
