8 oz Tiki Vessel

Trying to keep my hands in clay this time of year. Pushing and pulling on the wheel to come up with new shapes, colors and moods.

Tiki Mugs

When I start out to make a ceramic piece of pottery, I think of what would make me laugh or make me happy. I alter the shapes so that no two works look the same. I explore geometric shapes and play with proportions within the limitations of the clay.

Tiki Vessel

Here is a tiki vessel  which is going into the kiln to be bisque fired this weekend. It is the first of many that I threw on the wheel, then altered the shape.

Music by Tiki Tones and a new line of cocktail vessels.

I am finding my tiki style one dozen at a time. Here's a new batch for this start of my 2018 throwing season. I have 250 more pounds of clay and I have allot of ideas for some cool pottery.
