Lori, thanks a lot!
A few more came out of the kiln today. First, a group shot:
Here's the taller Moai, compared next to yesterday's. A bit taller, w/ a different glaze. Front view:
Back view: He fell into the glaze bucket (Turkish Amber), & stayed in the bath a bit too long- thus the heavy (and somewhat uneven coating)
Here's one view of the Palladium-glazed Wire Pin Skully Bowl. I'm pretty stoked w/ how the palladium glaze turned out (shiny silver metallic glaze), even after I glazed it on a bit thick and had to pay penance by cleaning the kiln wash off the shelf- not fun, but necessary. I look forward to using this glaze both by itself and in combination w/ other glazes- there are some great combos for glaze geeks (like myself).
Inner view- though in person the blue is a bit richer looking:
Bottom view, w/ the "Tiki Ano" stamp:
Here's the first view of the Bird's Surf Shed Bowl.
And the interior, with a surfboard inside:
If you've never visited the Shed, it's a great San Diego surf shop, filled with hundreds (if not more) surfboards, housed in an old Quonset Hut (not too far from Tiki Oasis). More info at:
Here's a photo (you can scroll up to compare the real thing to my version of it):
Thanks for looking!
