Aloha all, While my test mugs are at the store with the kiln, I'm starting on a new design... Love to hear some feedback...

I'm calling him "Leisure Chimp". Still some work to do, and I have to sculpt a tassel on the side.
Thanks for looking...

It's spectacular: especially the eyes.

Wow! Looks great. Could you sculpt a little tiki-esque design into the front of the fez, as if it were an embroidered badge? That would be extra deluxe!

I've left the front of the fez blank just for that sort of thing, I figure I can add a clay applique to it before firing. I'm hoping the Smugglers Cove here in SF will want some custom ones once they see a finished one.

Beautiful. Fantastic details everywhere. Love how the felt contrasts so much w/ the hair (fur?). You've hit the chimp on the head w/ this one!

Can't wait to see this piece progress!

Wow, indeed! The eyes are amazing. Liek the idea about a design for the fez.
Please do post more as progress continues. Would love to see the intermittent steps along the way to the finish.
