Wanted to show you some of my newest work. As a new artist, I'm playing around w/ different forms, glazes, and technique- thanks to all the advice from those here on TC (and in person)- Wendy, Tiki Tony, & Johnnie Velour have all been super helpful in talking shop at Don's. Look forward to hearing any/all feedback. I have a few other posts w/ photos that I'll add into this thread. I'll be starting work on my piece for the art swap next week, too: a Narwhal of the South Pacific mug.

I call the first piece the "Fourward Thinking" Bowl: each post has a different "Post-Tiki" expression. It's a Lt. Shino glaze in the exterior, the interior of the bowl is a Dark Shino, which has a matte finish. You can see the beginning building of this piece at:

I had some extra cylinders, so made them into "Mini Moai." From the right angle it looks like they're buried into the table.





More to come!

TikiAno, those turned out great ~ an interesting modern/primative blend. And that Shino glaze is beautiful

You are off to a great start. The power is in your hands to create whatever you want. It's fun isn't it? Wendy

MDM, Thanks very much, that means a lot to me- your work (and others here) continually inspire me. It was my first time using (any) Shino glazes. The more coats the lighter in color, the thinner the application the darker. That explains the "oops" uneven look on the back of the Mini Moai. Wendy, thanks, it's always fun.... and getting more fun. Funner?

Here's one more piece that came out of the kiln.- the Three Footed Bowl. There was a little bit of kiln wash stuck to it's feet, thus it's a little off-kilter. It' has a light shino glaze on the legs and the bowl interior, then a different glaze on the exterior (a Jungle Gem fired to cone 6, thus runny, not speckled). The photo (w/ flash) didn't come out that great, but I tried to make a functional and slightly silly piece work.

cool ideas, and I actually really like the glaze on that three-footed bowl. Ya know what'd be really cool is if those feet were like claws or something.

Thanks, PockyTiki. Yes, I've thought of a few options for "feet" on bowls. For a (sorta non-tikified, but still in the spirit of things), might try a mid-century looking Eames wire chair leg array- but claws would be fun, too. So many options.

Here's a few pics from earlier pieces. They've been in other threads, but trying to include more stuff in this one. Hope you like!

After glazing and firing. Have to drill out the earring hole & find a hoop (or stud):

Wow you are progressing at super sonic rate. Good Job. I love the latest glazes and tiki mug. Wendy and Dan looked too.

Wendy,

Thanks so much! The green and blue ones were done a bit ago, the ones earlier in the post are more recent. I'm about to post progress for the art swap pics, worked for a loooonnnnng time today after working on sketches for quite a while. I'm going to have some time off due to the clay studio I'm working at being closed for the holidays, so trying to get a few more hours in. Thanks for the support, hope Dan is feeling better every day! I should probably do a bowl with knees (as legs) for Dan.

You are too cute. I need to post on the swap thread tomorrow. Maybe we'll make it to the next DTB if Dan's knee is well. Wendy

Wendy, I'm intrigued to see where you're going w/ the Art Swap piece. I think there might be something on the other side of the pre-fired glazed mug, not sure if it's a sea creature Bob or something else entirely.....

Though I've already posted this in the Art Swap thread, here are a few pics from the mug I'm working on for this year's Art Swap. I call it "Narwhals of the (North) South Pacific (leaning on a fireplace)." Too abstract a name?

Worked a bit more on the TC Art Swap piece (photos in that thread), then started work on another mug as a (belated) Christmas gift for a friend on the East Coast. He requested a personalized mug a while back and have tried to come up with the right idea. Lots of people give him obscure "Hello Kitty" gifts as a running joke (Chia pets, etc), so I added a Hello Kitty bow on the side of the mug (tentatively called "Hello Tiki").

Next will be adding ears, carving in teeth, and adding texture to the sides/back. I've been doing some research to get inspired by tiki teeth details.

Some more progress on the "Hello Tiki" mug for Jorge. Carved in some teeth today, added more etching, ears, and a few other details, including a compass-like arrow in honor of his navigating skill (prior to smart phones). I also finished prepping the Art Swap mug to get ready to bisque fire. Unfortunately, as I'm in a shared studio, have to wait for more pieces to fill the kiln before they fire it. Time to figure out all the glazes for the two new one-off pieces. In retrospect, maybe I should have made the mouth a little more "Hello Kitty"-ish, but I was cutting my teeth on... carving teeth. Would love any feedback. Thanks!

*for those unfamiliar, the j makes an h sound in Spanish
