It's been a while since posting any recent work- work, etc getting in the way- been throwing more pieces, not tiki per se, on a wheel, so not posting those pics here.
Second Mustache Moai tile came out of the kiln- made with that black clay, it has six coats of glaze (necessary for that crazy clay body). I left the 'stache unglazed, which leaves it rough and a great charcoal black color:
Also started cutting and carving two smallish tiles (work in progress):
Tentatively titled: "Where the Wild Tikis Are" (this will be built up and carved some more as it dries):
and the "Inverse Moai" (this will also be built up some more):
Trying a different approach for these, there is a lot of work to be done but should look pretty cool. Thanks for lookin'.
