Whew! They all came out great! Just pulled them all out of the kiln. There’s a few experiments with this grey glaze that kinda covered up the details but overall this is one of my most successful kiln loads!!! #tiki #tikimug #tikitiki #tikiculture #tikidrinks #tikibar #ceramics
Glaze fire time! 🔥🔥 🔥 oh man... I can’t wait to open the kiln tomorrow morning! Doing a slow glaze fire today and it usually takes about 6 hours or so to finish. But I can’t open the damn thing until tomorrow because it takes that long to cool down! That’s when I pace around the house pulling my hair out in anticipation to open the kiln and see if everything is good or ruined! I feel good about this one though! So much awesome stuff I made! #tiki #tikitiki #tikimug #ceramics #clay #sculpture #kiln
I got a fever! And the only prescription is more turtles! Lol! So I did another Donatello on this turtles arm. She really loves Donatello... can you tell? I have a lot of fun doing these. #studio21tattoo #ninjaturtles #tmnt #tmntpower #turtlesinahalfshell #turtlepower #donatello #ninjaturtlestattoo
Finished this awesome Pokemon piece! I love it! Some parts are still healing but I just had to get a video of it. One of my recent favorites. I love my job! #tattoo #tattoos #studio21tattoo #pokemon #pokemontattoo
Here’s an older painting I did years ago. I really wanted to do some cool lighting on this piece. Looks better in person. This was a tattoo design I did on someone and then later did an oil painting of. #oilpainting #fortuneteller #crystalball #gypsy #painting
We are doing a fun movie poster art show at @studio21tattoo in October. Check out this call to artists flyer. If your interested please contact the shop. Info on flyer.
Spraying glaze! I can’t wait to see how these turn out! Glazing is kind of tedious and boring but I’m learning to take my time and do it right. Patience...
Finished this Phoenix today! Thanks so much for looking! #studio21tattoo #phoenix #tattoo #tattoos
I sprayed black underglaze and wiped it off... I love the effect!!! Now just need to clear them and then go in the kiln! #tikimug #tiki #tikitiki #tikibar #ceramics #clay
Yyuuussssssssss! Achievement unlocked! Probably going to be losing sleep for the next few weeks but I feel like I deserve this! I’ve been working very hard lately just so I can start this. #borderlands3
I did a fun tattoo today!!! I’ve always wanted to do a spider Gwen. This was done on an awkward spot right by his elbow so I had a hard time getting it done but he sat well and got through it. I think comic stuff is one of my favorite things to tattoo. #spidergwen #tattoo #tattoos #studio21tattoo #comictattoo
I’ve got a lot of stuff to glaze! This is where my brain goes totally nuts. For days I walk around in a zombie daze thinking about what colors to glaze things. Weed helps... I put on good chill music, I lay out all my glazes and pictures of things I’ve glazed successfully before... and I plan with sticky notes each and every mug and piece. Kind of the calm before the storm. I take my time with this part because there’s no going back! Half experimenting and half doing things I’ve done before successfully. I should probably make test tiles and fire all the different glazes I have... but that is a lot of work in itself and I enjoy this process. I’m not a machine. This can get tedious AF but I think they will come out nice! Can’t wait to get done glazing and I haven’t even started! #tiki #tikimug #tikitiki #ceramics #clay #bisque #glazedandconfused
Watching that trippy ass movie “Mandy” while underglazing the titties on my skull mugs! #tiki #tikimug #tikitiki #titty
Please help me by voting for your favorite colorway of my dragon egg mug! I’m going to be making more and I’m having a hard time deciding. It’s a pain in the ass to do them in a bunch of different colors so I’m trying to narrow it down to just one or 2. Thanks!
I 3D sculpted and printed these awesome new magnets! These will be available in November for Designercon. I love doing fun little projects like this. Can’t wait to mold and cast these in all kinds of fun colors and paint them really cool. #3dprinting #3dprint ##3dsculpting #3dsculpture #tiki #tikimug #magnet #form2 #formlabs #resin
Another piece in the phone series I did years back. I really like this one. The original was done with ink and markers then I added the background texture in photoshop. #iphone #markers #copicmarkers
Making a trio of devil babies. I love making these cute little guys. Now... should I carve a little pentagram or pentacle on their foreheads or not? Might leave these ones as they are. #ceramics #ceramic #sculpture.
Here’s another piece in the series about getting sucked into your phone... except this one is about your kid getting sucked into the iPad. I have to control my kids’ screen time... usually they are pretty good about it though. Had to do a creepy version of this idea. It was so fun to paint. #oilpaintint #oils #art #painting #ipad
I’m making some mini mugs (shot glasses) of my mummy and my shrunken head. Trimming the mold lines can be tedious... but also kind of meditative. It’s a lot of work trimming tons of mugs. #tiki #tikimug #tikibar #tikitiki #tikilove #sculpture #bisque #greenware #clay #slipcast
An old oil painting I did as part of a series about getting sucked into your phone. One of my favorite series I did a while back. I want to explore this more. #oilpainting #art #painting #iphone
