TikiCoins are done! You can read the announcement and sale info here, as well as peruse images of the finished coins:

http://www.geotiki.com/geotiki/Read_all_about_it%21.html

As I said earlier - these little tiki-themed geocoins are really for geocaching fanatics (like myself), but you are more than welcome to pick one up if you'd like

Mahalo,
Henrik "VanTiki"

Great job on the time lapse photography! Is that the Frank Giorgini tile press? Is that Mrs. VanTiki? So many questions, so little answers

Mahalo Mike! It is indeed the Georgini press - with a few modifications. Made mine a bit beefier, and built it into a mobile stand with shelves for molds. And yes, that is the wonderful Ms. VanTiki sharing the tile-pressing fun with me

After Oasis I plan on adding a counterweight system to the arm on the tile press. Should make epic tile-pressing days go even smoother.

Kiln has been running non-stop over here! Getting all the tiles for Tiki Oasis fired, then moving onto the mugs. Here is a peek at what came out of the kiln yesterday. Will have another kilnload of photos tomorrow afternoon!





Mahalo,
Henrik

Mahalo LLT! I also dig the all-seeing-eye-of-mystery

A quick peek at some new glazes that made their way out of the kiln yesterday:




Oasis is alarmingly close! Yikes!

This just in: New Tiki Tiles are in the works on VanTiki Island! It appears that these are TWICE the height of the standard VanTiki Tile, and that there are no less than THREE new designs! More news on this story as things develop...

Sweeeeet! I love my VanTiki Tiles. I have all of them mounted on my hall of awesomeness. Hope to snag any new additions to the VanTiki Tile family. Another round of swizzles would be cool too! hint hint nudge nudge
