Badd, looks good to me. You could fill it with Magic Mender and fire again, you could fill the cracks with epoxy if you were worried about the strength. Or, since it's on the back you could just leave it. The white octo is cool, maybe he's related to Moby Dick?

Jon, eyeballs are coming
TikiAno, yes it is a basswood plaque. I will know who is involved in the Swap because they will have posted a photo of their finished project by 2/28. I need to go thru this whole thread this week to see who has finished projects and who is working in that direction

Alright, I'll leave it in. there is one noticeable crack at the bottom front through the tentacle.

Not really worried about strength, the front and back pieces are connected. it's stone now, guess a lot of rocks have cracks in em anyway right?

Epoxy would just make it uglier imo, and it definitely wouldn't be fired again in time for the deadline anyway.

Still plodding along on this painting. I made some progress this weekend though. Actually some since the pics were taken. Doing the border on the tribal design will be the killer. It's a lot of fun painting the fish and adding the details.




Busy week ahead but I will try find the time to tighten this sucker up before the deadline.

Tabu, looks great! Once again, I have to say how impressed I am with all of the creativity and talent shown in creating pieces for this Swap- as well as all of the support everyone gives each other; It definitely makes the TC community a great family to be a part of. Good times.

Does your piece come with a complimentary Hibiscus Hula?



Visit me here in Portland and I'll make it happen. Although I think Amy and Jeremy still have it on the Tonga Hut menu, so you could have Marie make a good one for you also (probably not complimentary, though) if you go down to LA.

All the art on this thread is looking better and better!

Tomorrow I take my pieces in for the glaze fire line-up.

Each of them is glazed in a "winter blue" that is rubbed away in places and then glazed in a super shiny clear coat. The Tangaroa head and the upper portion of the Mermaid are glazed in a "Mahogany" that I wiped away and have decided to leave matte. The Mermaid's tail and the Seahorse are glazed in a greenish blue which I've played around with before, also left matte. I used some of the Mahogany to outline the seahorse a bit with his stripes and eyes, but it may burn off in the firing as I've never layered it over the blue/green before. We'll see. Interior is clear coated on each one.

Anyway, keep your fingers crossed for me.

Looks great Trader Tom! Fingers crossed that everything comes out of the kiln exactly as you hope it will.

Good luck, can't wait to see the new pictures.

I'm not sold on my wood block print. I'm working on something else. I'll post final images of both before the end date.

Tabu & Trader Tom, looking great! Unfortunately, still waiting for the group kiln to fire the glazed "Sinking Moai" piece. Still. Waiting.

"Carpaccio of Tiggerfish Head with Shellac Glaze", pairs well with the citrus acidity of Mike's Hard Lemonade

My fishhead was a beach find. It was picked by someone else and given to me as a challenge to make something artistic out of it. He needed some repairs, made here with air-dry clay which will be mostly covered in the final product.
