I finally got a few hours in on my project.

Here is the design copied onto to the wood.



Here is the progress after an hour or so.



I should be able to knock out a lot this holiday weekend.

Just when I was losing hope I found this album hidden in a boxed set of Mario Lanza records that belonged to my parents. SADLY the disc is cracked so we will NEVER know what the percussion rhythms of Wes Saxton actually sound like, all one can do is hold the fractured vinyl up to your ear and imagine...

TikiPops, looks great, and makes me feel terrible about my router skills. Thanks a lot. Seriously, look forward to seeing it progress!

Tigertail, good cover, and still time to get creatin'.

Glazed Mug v.2.0. A little crack appeared after bisque firing it (certain parts were trimmed pretty thin). I filed some of the bottom, used the ground bisqueware to plug the hole. (Glaze over top should work, I hope). I then glazed the piece: 6 glazes, multiple coats of each, took a bit of time. Whenever I glaze details like this my hat goes off to Wendy and Henrik, and everyone else, who regularly do incredibly detailed glaze work.

Oops! I have to explain. The cover IS the piece, I am working on the backside album notes now!
It's an imaginary album.

tigertail777 Dan was so in love with your cover that he had me looking on Amazon and eBay for the Album. What does your parents look like?

Tiki Ano I love honesty. I would always trust you. I hope that the little crack will go away with your repair. I've had it work.
Every time I see your piece I also in my head see the album cover so you pulled it off.

Cheers everyone. It's good to be home. Wendy

I looked a bunch of stuff and really liked these two, they remind me of classic Saul Bass movie tittle sequences...


drew a hot orange red background with prima color pencil, scanned and printed it and drew over the print with pencil again to really saturate the color.

Then came up with a name that had that hot jungle feel, Fever Drums, and drew a title in the style of Legends of Hawaii

and some other images


then combined it all and lifted the Capital and High Fidelity bugs from a Les Baxter album 'Skins'...

I've been slackin' on my Art Swap Leader duties, too many extra-curricular activities

ZeroTiki - Your Exotical is looking good, any updates?
BBmoondog - Glad to have you back with your burnt rhum. Very nice
Wendy - That mug matches the album cover PERFECTLY. The interior glaze is cool too.
TikiAno - You are juggling 3 pieces on this project! I like that Speckled Buff clay, good luck with that crack :fingers crossed:
TikiPops - That is some intricate router work!
TigerTail - Very cool! So the elements are hand drawn individually then scanned and assembled digitally? I like that white worn aging

My mug has been vegetating but I am getting ready to order some glazes for it, maybe tonight?


LESS THAN 4 WEEKS TO THE DEADLINE!!!!!!
