Enrolled at the local art school night classes in pottery to have a try after looking at Van Tiki's pots on this forum.

Heres my first attempts, not many Tiki based ones yet but a few small shrunken head shot glasses. lager plaster molded pots are now started.





































































wasn't too happy with the glazes but you live and learn

Very cool! Great expressions and nice glazes. Don't put an eye out drinking from that devil

Cheers . Have done a few from plaster moulds and will be doing some more tiki themed pieces soon.

Ill post some up as they develop. I will have to read up a bit on glazes as I havent a clue what im doing. So far ive only used stoneware as I like other peoples natural looking results. But mine look nothing like I anticipate. Maybe earthenware might be more controlled.

Now wheres the Van Tiki workshop manual on this site.
