I just sumbled over your page here and find your object highly interesting. I would like to make a suggestion though: Please consider rotating the sideward images. There are many free programs that are able to do that.

thnx, yeah they were upright. When upload DA put them sideways.

 I think they have a new thing where you have to pay to be able to use images over so many pixels high.

 Thanks.
 I really haven't established prices on the tiki jars yet (only one has come out of high fire so far) but the owl jars this size are going for about $150. (approx 9 inches tall by 5 inches wide). Each one is thrown and carved one of a kind.

 Feel free to post pics on your facebook site. I just don't facebook so...

 I just glazed a set of four cups that I think I will be ebay auctioning in a week or two.

 I don't know if you've seen tikicentral.com or not, but that's a great tiki forum.

Hey thanks for allowing me to post on FB. I would be interested in a swap of artwork for a jar when the time comes if you might be interested, browse my gallery to see what i do. If not i would still like to know pricing when the time comes. Thanks again !!

you've got some really incredible pieces. fantastic gallery too, love the thrown and then cut pieces such as your vase pineapple.

if you don't mind me asking what's your favourite kind of clay and firing technique?

thanks a lot :D

lately I've been using CA2. It's a red stoneware that the art center gets for hand building but i think it throws really nicely. A bit of grog but not too much. Doesn't shrink too bad and it has a nice color and iron spots when fired.

 Most of my stuff just goes through the cone 10 gas kiln so I guess it's my favorite. But I get to throw a couple pieces in raku/salt fires occasionally too. I like the pieces to be fully vitrified though, makes them a bit more functional.

 I think I'm going to get a chance to participate in a wood fire this fall, pretty excited about that, it probably is the best looking firing imo. Definitely the hardest/most time consuming unfortunately.
