Mike, looking great. Didn't know you were a "Beetles" fan....

Jones, great shot- and great lighting. Everyone's work is looking fantastic, going to be a good Swap.

Update: glazed up the Skull and Cutlery Wall Tile- working on glazing the Anthropologist Kettle later this week- fingers crossed the glaze repair will fix things right up (or together).

I vote for an Oasis in-person Swap, if that's possible. I understand that a good number of folks will not be coming out, but would be a good reason for a mini-TC meet up for those in town...? Mike, thoughts?

TikiAno, I don't think it would work out to have 2 Swaps with separate drawings for the Oasis attenders and the Oasis non-attenders. But I don't see any reason why we couldn't have a Art Swappers Git-Together and Hoedown at HulaBilly Oasis! I count 14 projects that have been started at this point and it looks like at least 6 of those people will be at Oasis (TikiAno, Cy, Wendy, ZeroTiki, Hang10Tiki, and myself)

The surprise exchange worked well for the last winter Swap. But if no one objects, I'd like to go back to a paired exchange for this summer Swap just to increase the odds that someone will be able to Swap at Oasis

Mad dog- paired exchange sounds good to me. That way if two people happen to be going to Oasis, easy hand delivery.

Done with mine.
2 more coats of 2 different stains and 3 coats of gloss.

Mike, sounds good- dig the "git together" idea. I'll be around for TO weekend- except for ducking out for work here and there. In any case, this Swap is looking great.

Jon, killer carve and, yes, it looks sweeeeet.

Jon that is some sweet mesquite! Love that you were able to carve thru the sapwood to expose the heartwood. Nicely done cannibal.

Ok, the party is over and it's time for me to get to work! I don't have access to clay and a kiln so I need to venture out of my comfort zone and create some art in another medium. Yikes.

I started some sketches this morning and they look like they were done by a 5 year old. I'm embarrassed to show them! I've been envisioning a 3 part-er cannibal with his "mini-me" in his hand, going into his mouth and then in his bigger belly. I have some nice looking wood so I may try my hand at some kind of carving or if that's a bust, 3 small paintings.

I'm going to do my best to not humiliate myself in the presence of you fantastic tiki artists on TC!

But I wanted everyone to know I hadn't given up on the swap. Yet.

This is about as exciting as watching ice melt. I want it to hurry up and dry so I can start firing and glazing. But if I let it dry too fast it will crack

Mike from that angle it looks like you made a bong from the Temple of Doom. You got some special herbs to go with that?

Jon, no pressure there w/that graphic. Lori, go go go!

Tigertail, now that you mention it....

Update: so, if you may or may not remember, the original Cannibal tile cracked. I tried to use supercharged vinegar slip to re-attach it, but it didn't quite work. I decided to progress w/ the project (w/o posting photos along the way). I glazed both pieces, fired them, then used twine to tie it together- I felt it make it look "modern primitive"- perhaps something found at a nice cannibal casual restaurant? (I had drilled out holes before bisque firing it).

I used a metallic glaze for the knife and fork, and white for the skull. I left the black clay unglazed. Instead of twine I used a red line to tie everything together. It was still missing something, so I added acrylic paint for a bloody finish on the knife. A little more gore than I had initially planned, but am happy w/ the final look.

Wide shot: I used a bit more of the red line as two hangars- tried to use the red to tie the piece together:

Close-up:

Extreme close-up:


Hopefully this is still within the realm of good (TC) taste. The Cannibal Kettle Bowl should be getting fired as I write this. I'll post photos of that one, including the glaze mishap that happened, as one post when I have the final version (w/ the hand hopefully reattached).

Looking forward to seeing everyone else's pieces! It's not too late to join in.... and I'm not just talking about Grog.

Nice save TikiAno, just like you planned it that way. Yes, I'm feeling the pressure too I like that black clay! Maybe you already said but what is it called?
