June 2019 Update
Kampai! from junkhaulerarts
June has been a busy month so far. The studio is about 50% organized allowing me to move forward on projects with more ease.
The last few weeks have been a focus on a piece for the Tonga Hut’s Bowl-O-Rama 2 show at their Los Angeles location, happening June 30th. Its been many hours, late nights and fighting the south’s humidity to get this piece done, but what fun! The bowl itself is Cone 5 ceramic, the base is pine construction with Famowood Glaze Coat Bar Top epoxy “lava” and 3- cone 5 Ocea Otica Moai 2 at the base, taking up approximately a 2ftx2ftx2ft triangular footprint. Included are some photos during its creation.
Also in production are a variety of handcast fortified gypsum cement Moai that are stained and waterproofed with eco friendly Rain Guard brand waterproofer.
Two New Ocea Otica mugs are close to being molded. The first is based on a Sepik cult hook design i sculpted as a pendant about 9years ago, and will be triangular in shape. the second is a return to chunk swag lamps; it will have the look of a wood frames resin chunk lamp with bamboo legs. Likely to start the ceramic end of production within the month.
Added to the Collab section of the site is a photobuild/shoot from earlier in the year for Beachbum Berry of the Kiwi’s Nest Grog for his touring symposium. This photo is a homage to both Maori/New Zealand themes and our former family iguana, Lester, whose diet included Kiwi fruit and was the impetus for the cocktail. Lester’s memorial footprint casting can be seen nestled in the abalone shells under the cocktail in the photo.
wondering how to buy junkhaularts; well currently the website store is not set up. I am hoping by the end of this month I will have this webthinger figured out. In the meantime I am selling on Instagram and occasionally on ebay. Please visit junkhaulerarts on Instagram.
The last months saw the completion of my production of the Drinky Fiends Zombie 2; all one off customs. Didnt get one, well another artist has signed on to do a limited production and details are still being worked out. Will update in the future. Drinky Fiends Skullitiva 2 are currently in sporadic production.
Thank you for dropping in!
