What a sweet couple of darling fellows!

And they can carve, too?

Actually, a "Buzzy Fan Club Troop #1" would make a nice t-shirt...

I didn't have a chance to take an update picture of my day job, but I assure you all that it is going quite well. I'm working on a prototype test carving to make sure the ideas I have will actually work out on the final pieces. So far, so good and it is all working out as planned. More on this later as I start on the real pieces...

Last night was another work night for me at the
House of Babalu.

I worked on and finished my second mug. I did a lavaesque background for it


It's marked from an old tikibar restaurant in Bay Park:


I hear that restaurant used to go off, back in the heyday.


I still had a little time before I turned into a pumpkin so I started another mug, which is a redo of one I started a couple months ago and never finished:

I think it will commemorate the second anniversary of The San Diego Tiki Factory, which happened earlier this year. If I lag too much, it will be for the third.

Days are for carving.
Buzzy Out!

Today's sun going behind the clouds moment:



The prototype I worked on yesterday showed me that my ideas would work for my next piece. Here's Kiva frustrated because I took over the living room floor with my work again:

That's the test piece sitting there in the foreground.

So today, it was back to the day job. I used what I learned on the prototype and applied it to my new piece


I carved this tiki into a log. Nothing special, I will admit.

However, there is more to be revealed with this one...


Check it out from this side.

A little more carving was done here than on the other side


It's a chair for a dining room table...


Leg detail:

The test piece looked like it was going to be drum #2, but whoa, a chair!

Jonesey the Buzzy tiki is just so terrific. I didn't know Buzzy when you first showed the project to me. Now that I know him and see it finished I am just so impressed with your talent. You rock, Buzzy rocks, I just love all the great people that tiki has brought into our lives, cool, Wendy

Here's yesterday's sunset from the hotel:


After working at the factory all day, it was nice to take my show on the road and spend some time under the clouds. I took the prototype turned drum to work on.


I hardly took any stuff with me, but I had a good day nonetheless. This was last week of this gig.


Aside from back to back wedding rehearsals, the only other excitement was...




The guitar dudes right speaker went out and he couldn't fix it. He still rocked on the whole second half of the set!


The wine and cheese crowd had a great time, despite the diminished soud quality



In other tiki news, I finished another chair this afternoon:

One side of this log couldn't hold any detail at all, so the design is kinda chunky there


This log gave me a real neat naturally tapered shape to the whole thing


Two down, one more started today

Hey Wendy! The whole world will soon share in the moment when this person was brought into your lives. Stay tuned for a forthcoming journal entry from this year's Oasis, featuring Buzzy meeting Dan of Danlovestikis and Wendy of Danslovestikis. Coming soon to this thread!

Waitaminnit! Everytime you say that, I see that Cammo came over. Why did you and Cammo vote me out of the Southern California Coastal Polynesian San Diego Touring Hand Built Tiki Mug Ceramics Club?

And I'll keep on rockin,
Aint never gonna stop.
Gotta keep on rockin,
Some day I'll make it to the top.
And be a Tiki Guy Hero,
woodchips in my eyes...

I'm also working on the drum at home tonight since I was BANNED from Babalu's studio and couldn't go over there tonigt.
Buzzy Out!

Buzzco,

So I guess that would be the 'SCCPSDTHBTMCC' for short? Tee shirts?

Hey, no one told the Cammo is was Amy night last night...Cammo = Wind, no, Cammo is more like the Phantom Mugger...you turn around, and it's like,
whoa - Cam...where'd you come from? Then you turn around again, and "POOF" he's gone.

Great work, and funny posts Buzzy! Good seeing you at the Oasis! Jonesey's statue is awesome, a true treasure! Did the Couger lady get you back to her house after Oasis?

"Why did you and Cammo vote me out of the Southern California Coastal Polynesian San Diego Touring Hand Built Tiki Mug Ceramics Club?"

We didn't vote you out, man, you're just too talented for us duffers and an after hours whisper campaign started where everybody started blaming you for all our recent mugs exploding in the kiln. You're welcome to come by anytime, but that doesn't mean we'll actually BE THERE when you come by.

Ringo and Zaya aren't kicked out. We still like them.
