Hey all,

I was pretty certain that I was going to have to back out of the swap since I've ben really busy with my son's surgery and I only have access to a kiln for 10 more days because school is almost over BUT I finally found time today to start creating what has been in my mind since this all started. I'll take and post a picture tomorrow.

No pics - sorry - but some tragedy. I guess I made my alien a little too skinny cause he got decapitated overnight and his skinny little legs got broken off. He wasn't anywhere near dried so I did some repair work on him and left him with damp towels on him for the weekend. So we'll see his status on Monday.

For those like me, who like to make pictures in their heads, he's a slab clay piece of a large headed alien holding a tiki mug. I'd like him to be a wall hanging so I'm going to put a hole or two in him for some cording to hang. I'm hoping we have a really neon green to glaze him in. I don't have time to order any more glazes so I'll just have to go with what we have in school or get something that can be baked in a home oven after he's been fired.

Fingers crossed! Everyone else is kicking butt!

Mauka nice concept, like the meteor/floats! Those came out great Jon. We know that GROG is the spelling police but it looks like Wendy is the copyright mafia. Hanna- Barbera is watching you MadDog.

I was serious. Make a swap or else!

All this looks great. I'm seeing a lot of fine art from artists who should keep doing this all year long. That means you Colorado-MT.

hang10tiki you stole my alien! Good job. I may still use him.

I have a lot to catch up on and then back to work.

Cheers, Wendy

Here's what he looked like post firing before I glazed him.

His legs broke - again.


I glazed him up and because of the triple break I didn't even attempt to have the glaze fuse the pieces together as I've done in the past. Today was the last day I could fire so I have my fingers crossed that he's not horrible when the kiln opens tomorrow. If the glazing is good then I'll have to try to crazy glue the legs or come up with some other solution that doesn't involve a kiln since I won't have access again with one until after the swap.

I'll post a pic soon and I'll be looking for advice on repairs.......
