Hi Friends, if you follow my craft page you will see the story of this little tiki that I've added to the bottom of my art photographs. It's such a thrill to see something so precious to the Frank family come back again from her original sculpt. My contribution is just the use of the mold we made and glazing. Joniece did all the rest of the work so many years ago. No other tiki survived the fire. Wendy

I have 96 of the 110 Tiki Crates finished. When I finish there will be 60 black and blue mugs and 50 of the three color statue version. The Forbidden Island 5th Anniversary Party is on 4/21/2011 a Thursday. We will be there to greet everyone and we are looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.

To see how these were made check my crafts thread here on TC. Thank you, Wendy

Hi Brodah, thank you, I'm happy too.

I just posted the first bowl made from Joniece Franks little tiki that survived the horrific fire at Frankoma. The whole story is on page one of my crafts thread.

Joniece was Frankoma's master mold maker and sculptor, he sister was the master glazier. They still do some projects at their historical home in Supulpa, Oklahoma. You can see tours on u-tube by typing Frankoma or Joniece Frank. She was named after her father John so you say her name starting with the sound of John.

Yesterday I googled myself and found that someone took a PBS show we were on and split it up and posted it on u-tube with ads. If you would like to view some of our collection or jungle room type Wendy Cevola Video. Cheers, Wendy

I just watched them. I'm going to need your autographs now. I know that won't be your one and only 15 minutes of fame.
Here's a link

Just saw your new piece Wendy!

I am touched,honored,and mostly tickled
that would place me in one of your beautiful paintings!
To be "immortalized" by someone with such
talent,energy,multi-medium mastery,creativity,and pure love of Art
is something i will carry forever in my heart!
A Big Hug and Mahalo to you,cutey!

That is a very believable Photoshop there LLT. Needs a JoshKat in there though.

i think this line from the article captures it all...
There is always such a joy and enthusiasm that Wendy captures
both in her life and her art!
It's about time the "outsiders" were exposed to her incredible body of work.
great article!

Hi corriannao, thank you so much. It didn't occur to me that I could see the article on-line. I was waiting to go buy a - no 50 copies later today. Thank you, now I've posted the link on my crafts page as well as here.

Kinny you are such a fine artist that it is just a blast when you post on my thread. My aim was to do a painting of you that people would smile at, I sure do. Cheers, Wendy

I couldn't agree more. My wife & I have only met Wendy twice before in the past and each time she made us feel like we'd known her forever. Truly a good soul. Congrats on the article, Wendy!

Stephen, that was such a nice thing to say, thank you. We fell in love with not just tiki but with the people who also love it. This community is really something special. Especially you, Wendy
