Did a little "editing" on the Skipper and the TLDR. Skip got a new mouth, light stone texturing, and some new carved lines.
Dug into the TLDR a bit more with more carving. I also did some dermatological work on the flip side of the mug, including excising the moles (that were originally be a design element, but thought it would be a little "too much"). Will carve out his teeth a little more as he dries out.
Started working in a different way on a new Moai mug. I started pushing from the interior, forming the brow and the beginnings of a nose (it will be built out more after it dries a bit). Always excited to learn new ways to work- Also working on a larger version of this same piece (in the same way) on a pretty big cylinder that the owner of the clay studio I work threw on the wheel (it's the brown clay form on the bat on the table in the last photo). I admit I'm more of a hand builder, so excited to where this piece will be going (right now, I admit, it's not too hotsy totsy).
With mouth and traditional Moai ears:
