The mugs look like the Terracotta Army of Emperor Qin Shi Huang.

The Blue Kahuna I like that comment.

MaukaHale I actually had been thinking about that and wondered if in a prior life one of us event mug makers was there.

This is fun, thank you, Wendy

Not only that Vamp, he said I could include a card that allows each purchaser to give him a verification squeeze!

The first bisque fired load is out of the kiln. None cracked so on with the show! Wendy

2010, 2011, 2012 and the clay sculpt of 2013 which cast will be a bit smaller. Even still it is twice the size of last years mug and four times as heavy. Start lifting weights now so you can carry it on the crawl to drink from! Cheers, Wendy

Huge and heavy. I'll have to weigh one when it is full of drink. I hope it will last in collections forever. I'm done pouring and now I'm sanding and bisque firing. When that's all done the glazing tests will begin. That will be fun.

Cheers, Wendy

Yesterday before the heat spiked.


Dan dusts.


Load number 2 fired last night. One more to go for bisque firing. It will take more than 3 when I glaze them. They can't touch or lie on their sides.


The molds are put away. Step one of pouring is finished.

2nd to last batch out of the kiln

washed and

ready to go into the house for glazing.


Sanding the last bunch.


Only three left to sand tomorrow and then the last batch will bisque fire.


I am so happy to be this far along. These are so big and heavy that it takes a lot more to do them.
We are looking forward to the crawl. VampiressRN-Marlene you have made up a terrific schedule like last year. I sure hope you can make it to all the stops. We want to keep hugging you and saying thank you for taking this on.

Cheers, Wendy

Then entire run of 50 plus the extras for glaze tests have been bisque fired.
I didn't have any problems with any of these huge and heavy mugs. Now if glazing
will go so well we'll be really happy.













Cheers to VampiressRN for the work of running the crawl first thought up by Psycho Tiki D.
We have great leaders in Sacramento! Wendy

Very festive table cloth! The mugs look fabulous. You are doing great! Mahalo for all your long hours toiling away so we can sip in style.
