Aloha Bai!

Nice to see you posting :D

I'm digging your pink bird tree with the big birdy eyes - very fun & cute!

& your peanut bob is AWESOME - the big one and the cute little ones (?pendants). Loving the idea of turning bob into a peanut! Now you just need a peanut-based drink recipe to go with the mug :wink: We have a liqueur in the U.S. called Castries that is quite yummy & tastes like peanut butter......maybe that could be a start to an appropriate drink for peanut Bob?

Anyway - nice work - let us all know when you're taking orders for 'ol peanut Bob....


Thank you Croe67 :) you're right I should work on the drink now!!! :)
funny you talked about the pendant... I tought about this:

now I have to find a way to do it.... :wink:

Bonjour Bai!
Yay! You finally got your own thread!
Your work is great. I love the new monkey, but tell him smoking is bad for his health.


WooHoo! I love all your creations :) Hope to see you in California soon.

Peanut Bob,the Koi Fish ,and the Smoking monkey are pure Happiness!
We can all feel the love you put into these
all the way from France!
You've got a great brain and a big heart
so we'll be expecting MANY more of these from you
as the years pile up! YAY for BAi!



Wow Bai these are so crazy awesome!!!
I can't wait to see'em in person

We all miss you so much! :D

Your characters are amazingly delightful! How crazy-good are you at creating expression?!


Love your creativity. Welcome to TC!


Yay, You did it!! (With my very poor spelling and all) :)
Very, very cool mugs you are making! I love your style, the cute ones and the though ones even more, hope to see you around a lot, congrats!

Really beautiful work, Bai! I really dig the smoking monkey- the details are amazing.

YES or....OUI! the work speaks in many languages,all of them take you away to a land of imagination! Merci Boucoup! ( thats all I know in French,well that and a couple phrases not worth repeating lol )

Beautiful work Bai! Bringing tiki to the young'uns! I hope all is well with you....


YAY!!! Bai has her own thread!! Killer work sista'! Your monkeys are really cute, even smoking. I've got a few requests to do a few more monkeys too... Mine look more like the Hyde to your Dr. Jekyll :-) I never could bring myself to making "cute"...You (and Squid too) cover that area quite nicely.

Soooo much damn fine hand built ceramics taking place on TC these days....ya gots to love, LOVE, LOOOOVE it!

Bai, all your pieces have so much character! They are very witty and beautifully executed. C'est fantastique!


Love that the monkey has his own little peanut mug.

I think you could teach the men mug makers on here a thing or two :wink:

Fabulous stuff !


Wow, Bai! I love that red flower mug. The Koi is gorgeous. The Peanut Bob is genius!

Wow! Are you selling any?

The mug drinking a mug is astounding. Please keep sharing!

Look, if you're going to do something amazing EVERY TIME, people are going to expect you to do something amazing every time. So, you better start knocking out, some so-so carvings or people are going to have such high expectations of you that eventually you'll put so much pressure on yourself to produce a masterpiece everytime you sculpt, you'll end up having a nervous breakdown, and retreat from the world becoming this recluse that people hadn't heard from in years until some reporter discovers your art from decades before and does one of those "where are they now" stories.

You're batting 1000, so far. (In baseball terms, that means your doing perfect every time you step up to the plate.)
