Inspired by Squid (him did coil-built stuff recently), GROG making a coil-built Tiki Bob bowl.

Building the bowl, with Bob shots as tiki footings, building the bowl upside down from the top down.


Making a bottom to add on.


Bottom attached.


Bowl roughed out, now to start the cleanup/detailing.

Hey Grog, are these bowls going to be for sale or just for show?

Thanks!

But GROG had already started the bowl when you made your request, Boris. Besides, Bob sells and GROG got bills to pay.

Looking forward to seeing Luna and Teresa (TNT) at Tonga Hut.

Bisque fired some crap.

A couple of primitive Moai bowls.





The Bob Bowl had some cracks (figured as much) because the Bobs were already pretty dry when GROG was building up the coil-built bowl. They dry at different rates and you get cracks where they attach. A little bit of paper clay in the cracks and refire, and cracks will be gone.


Two top seekrit bowls. They are actually rough experimental bowls GROG will do as collaboration with another artist. If the two mediums work as well as GROG hoping, then GROG will do a final bowl for the show which should be pretty nifty and different than any other bowls done so far.


GROG fired the Wangaroan because GROG kept breaking off his wang and his head when GROG was trying to make a mold of him. Now that he's bisque, GROG should be able to mold him without breaking his wang off. GROG just not good at handling wangs other than GROG' own. It's a good thing GROG heterosexual.


And Whistlin' BOB just for Boris! Actually, GROG had started this for the Tiki Wonderland show, but the greenware got bumped and broke off some pieces, so it needed to be repaired and GROG didn't have time before the last show. Now it repaired and onto glazing.

We've got artists making bowls, and we've got the Glasgow Tiki Shakers as entertainment. Not sure if Marie talked to Tonga Tom yet about DJing in the parking lot, but GROG pretty sure he'd be up for that. Now we just need more vendors. So, if you're interested in vending, contact GROG or Marie at the Tonga Hut, and she will notify GROG.

Does paper clay come in a spray can? The local hiphop hoodlums like to wear their pants down around their knees. I wish I had something to make those cracks be gone!
