    Those colors give me the fizz... ^^

    Is that natural light? Or filters?

    I love the shape and proportions. Reminds me of a fat, low & long cruiser. Nice colors too!

    Man love the Jabba, and the orb entity. Here are some pics from my first attempt at a carved minitube. Technically the 2nd or 3rd minitube ever that came out without any cracking or joint issues... BTW I used a removable drop stem, 14mm male to 10 female... with the hand formed joint only a few of them would fit properly, many were lose and when comparing them the taper and lengths were all off by a mm or two... Only 2 of the 5 of 8 I had fit the same. I am going to have to start comparing drop stems to the male joints I use to finish the sizing... AAAAAnd/or just make fixed stems... but I like removable ones...doh Next one I will have to go thicker and use various layers of clear to get a depth I am looking for. Not terrible for a first one eh? I forgot to sign it though whooops.

    After I started carving I think I have finally become proud of my work, even with the refinements that will be required, it is nice to feel good about your work regardless if its moving or not.

    Probably the last piece out of the kiln before I start breaking down the studio. My nicest cup yet. Holds 12oz.

    No just need to break down the studio -for like the 5th time- since my ex is buying me out of the house.

    So it is looking like I am going to be renting an apartment at my work until I can find another living situation with a studio option.

    Sorry to hear it. That's why I own a shed studio.
