I've been called worse!
Thanks Jason and Ken!!!!

Here's my next installment, "Leilani Tiki III:Orchids" I have glazed and fired some of it but an still trying to work out the right glaze combo for the orchids. Can't seem to find a good fuchsia or magenta glaze so I'm trying to mix one

Up next? Plumeria or Bird of Paradise

Here's a non-tiki project I just finished, a trophy mug for a spearfishing tournament. I had proposed an aluminum spear sticking out of the head but the "customer" decided against it. 4x6x8 inches, holds 24 ounces.


We wanted the back of the head to look like it was freshly lopped off.

Thanks LLT, "fresh"!

I got a new mug form courtesy of Bolthouse Farms (available at WalMart). It's round on the bottom, square at the top and tapered. The bottle held 1 liter, the mug will hold somewhat less than that.


I wanted a quick and simple design to try it out so I went with the classic Kon Tiki image. The tapered image fits well on the tapered mug, I'll leave it a little unpolished and rough like it's crossed the Pacific Ocean. Glaze will be a textured Khaki Canvas.

The fish head turned out great! Really like
the speckled dots all over. Kon Tiki Mug is coming
along quite nicely too!

I LOVE the fish head! The neck stump is right up my alley... so gruesome, but so true to life, it's hilarious! Too bad about the spear!

The Kon Tiki mugs look AWESOME! Can't wait to see them completed!

Thank you Jason and Eric

I had so much fun making beads and orchids I decided to try a beaded orchid necklace. I decided to use polymer clay because it was lighter and less breakable, it's much easier to make millefiori beads out of polymer than ceramic clay. I was still in a "Tiki Guy bling mode" and probably made it bigger than I should have, it's about 3 1/2 inches across.

Thank you Kiki.

I finished my Kon Tiki Mug, glazed it with a Khaki Canvas glaze that gives it an aged/distressed look. When I first posted this, someone PM'd me and asked if I wanted to sell it - if he likes the finished product it's gone!


Also finished the last of my "Leilani Tiki" mugs with tropical flowers and tikis. Here's the display with some silk flowers added for effect.

Anthurium, Heliconia, Orchids, and Bird of Paradise.
I had planned a Plumeria but am having some glaze fit problems because the mug and flowers are made from lowfire clay but the tikis are made from highfire woodgrained clay.

Thank you Sam and Queen KamehamAMY

I have always admired the work of the TC Micro-Masters like Bowana & Benzart - I decided to give it a shot myself. I wanted to make a little Marquesan Tiki Ivi Po'o, so I started with a chicken bone (KFC)


Next, I got a hold of a pair of surgical binocular loupes and a Dremell



After some carving, some wiped-off stain, and some varnish, here's the result, about 1/2 inch diameter and 3/4 inch tall
