Hi Dave, G here -

Always been a fan of your work, always admired the carved stuff I've seen and lately your clay jams have been righteous beyond words at times.

I, like everybody else, anticipate each new piece with open arms. Thanks for posting.

B

You da man brother!!

Carver/sculptor Extraordinaire.

(And an awesome individual to boot.)

Did I die and go to TC Heaven? Dave, your art is scattered all over TC making it hard to track down. I only hope the electron bonds that hold this tread together are strong enough to contain all of this awesomeness without creating some sort of antimatter!

B

Thanks for the comps everybody. (Gosh!) :blush:
Lake Surfer, should we let Dave Clysdalle Low-Zow and Dave Squid Cohen into Club Dave? Ahh.. sure, why not! :)

Here's the latest:




Moai ceramic mug w/removable top

Great minds think alike. GROG did a Moai mug with a topknot lid too. GROG also going to do one where the topknot/lid is a shotglass. First one in a series GROG call "Mugshots" which are combination mugs with shot glass.

GROG hear your wahine with the headdress had an unfortunate accident. That too bad, it was a gorgeous piece.

oops..

Bows, You have done some Incredible stuff here, it's hard to believe some of this stuff didn't come outta a machine! Nice to see all this work together especially with your earlier treasures..

But he IS a machine! Dave is an android.

B

Thank you Bai! You are so sweet! I don't know if I deserve that title but thank you very much! Big hugs for you!

GROG and Benzart sweet too, but not as sweet as Bai. :)

At this point Leela is in the shop for a glaze repair. Please pray for her...

B

Mahaloz, SandraDee!

I finally got some new pieces for the galleria:

Blue zebra striped seahorse mug.
Trying to paint the stripes symmetric on both sides was the main rub.
Whew.


Tribal Skull MInimalist Moai.
(The Misfits resemblance is purely coincidental)


Aikane shot glass size muglet. 4" tall, edition of 30.


Little Kahuna shot glass size muglet. 3 3/8" tall, edition of 25.


Here's a shot of them with a familiar Orchids of Hawaii mug for scale.
Rinky dink!

Thanks for stopping by.

Bowie

B'WANA!!! Nice work. So good to see you in here :)

You're seahorses are adorable! I'm loving the blue zebra stripe one

Had to stop by and remind you that your stuff is beyond badass bro! Hope all is really great for you and all the rest of the SD choppers! Sorry for being a stranger, circumstances suck!

B

Mahaloz, MDM (nice seeing you at Oasis BTW!), bitterfishies, and Birdman!

I've been slacking on my posts, so here's the latest:


The Space Monkeys landed, then all disappeared at Tiki Oasis!
It was an edition of 6 white space suits and 6 orange, all with removable,
NASA issue ball caps.
Gosh, I wish I saved one for myself. Oh well.
I'll be making some special editions and custom one offs in the future.
One giant leap for a space monkey.

Thanks for visiting. :)
