After more than a year of not doing any ceramics, GROG finally getting back to slinging mud. GROG had started the last 2 batches of those damned ape mugs before GROG stopped. Now GROG gotta start where GROG left off--- working on Going Primitive Ape mugs. Got some Ape mugs with zebra print fezzes and some that are going to have leopard print fezzes. A few one-ofs and a few AP's and finally these damned mugs will be done and out of GROG' hair.

Originally Rory and Amy ask GROG for 300 mugs for the GOING PRIMITIVE event, so GROG pour 300 mugs. Then they decided they only wanted 150 for the event, so GROG only glaze 150. So, after that we did a few different limited edition runs in different glazes on the remaining mugs. Now these are the last ones that had been poured for the original run.

GROG hasn't fired the kiln in over a year, so GROG vaccuum it out and going to do a bisque fire, because if there's any dust left in the kiln during a glaze fire, it could mess up the glaze on the mugs. The only greenware GROG have right now are some Moai Salt and Pepper shakers and some Disney greenware GROG has had since high school (talk about procrastinating!)

GROG hate glazing. Not too fond of cleaning greenware either.










(GROG not sculpt the Disney ceramics--- they're from commercial molds from years ago.)

Dumbo's been broken for YEARS. Time to put him back together with some paper clay.

The ape mugs have been sitting the way you see them for over a year waiting for GROG to finish glazing enough mugs for a full kiln load. Has GROG mentioned GROG hate glazing?

Exciting. I like the apes’ faces. Are you doing anything special to the Disney ones? Tiki-ing them up, somehow? And how might one go about procuring one of GROG‘s completed ceramic masterpieces?

About time GROG get back into it. Maybe now GROG finish piece for swizzle he promised years ago. Or if that still too much work, maybe offer swizzle one of these apes.
