Thanks for the pictures of the mosaic Bob, he's AMAZING! Your talent continues to astound me. (I know I'm starting to sound like the president of the Wendy & dan fan club.)

I'm always impressed at the hard work and dedication to ceramics I see you displaying day after long day.

Keep up the great work!

MadDogMike if only we had read your idea first! See below.

WestADad after your note this packing material will not be peanuts if will be popcorn.

Lori Loves Tikis thanks for noticing it is hard heavy dusty work. On the other hand it is fun and rewarding because I get to read all these fun notes each day.

Atomic Tiki Punk I hope you will all join me on the next 24 special orders

If I remember right I need to make:

16 custom Bobs
2 Bumatay Bowls
3 Missionary's Downfall bowls
3 Tiki Bob bowls

cdTiki I hope you can explain that to me on the 5th!

Wish List Progress Report:


Psycho Tiki D's Missionary's Downfall Bowl Disaster
First I had to chisel out the original bowl destroying it.
Next I took a disastrous misstep by making a one piece mold.
The cast wouldn't come out.

Next mistake was to not just throw it out. Instead I told Dan to saw it in half so I could diagnose its problems. Face masks worn during surgery.


The power saw didn't go deep enough so I finished it off with a hand saw.



Looks like a cross section of a CT scan. I could see that the clay had not dried or shrunk in parts. So it's set aside to see if it will dry enough to be pulled out.


Dan the clean up man vacuumed - a no-no.


Mopping pinup. Of course everything in the garage is now covered in plaster dust. If we end up with COPD we'll know why.


On to the wish list. While the Alter bowl dries some more I went on to the Bumatay Bowls. It sure is fun to have already poured and stored all the parts for all 24 projects.

I cleaned out the inside of the bowls and added my name to the bottoms.


Example: top Bumatay not finished, bottom Bumatay finished.


I cut an opening at the base of each fish for air to escape during firing.


Skipping ahead I filled the bowl with paper towels so I could invert it onto a jar.


I do this because I need to protect the head fin while I finish off the bottom attachments.


Before


After


I actually did four fish at a time.


Because the bowl and fish are drier than the clay used to attach them it needs to dry slowly to prevent cracks. I wrap it up so that the clay can equalize. After a few days I will unwrap these so they can dry out completely.


Onto the next project...(: Wendy

Ouch, ouch, ouch...can you hear me crying and my heart breaking all the way from Rocklin to your house this morning?

On the otherhand, the Bumatay bowls look great. Glad you had a diversion to the dust and powertool calamities.

Tell Dan he need a breathing apparatus!

See you soon,

D

I'm going to stop calling it "The Wendy and Dan Show." It shall now be known as "The Adventures of Wendy and Dan" or even maybe "The Perils of Wendy and Dan."

Seeing the effort and passion you two put into it gives me even more reason to value your beautiful art.

Welcome back for Dan and Wendy's Never Give Up Show

Psycho Tiki D I'm trying to mend your heart by mending your bowl, see below.

Professor G I believe the passion is the right word for our feelings towards tiki art and history. For fans like you I love to keep the show going. Of course we are also nutty hams. You could make a dish out of that!

hang10tiki here's goes...

Here's a Dan pin up. He's boxed all the Zombie Torches for shipping. He's such a support. I would clone him if I could. Everyone needs a Dan!

Tonight is the deadline for the Zombie Torch. I have three unclaimed mugs but more people than that on the list. Saturday evening I'll finalize who gets a mug or not.

First up I've decided to make Traditional face Bumatay necklaces (no fins).
$40 which includes shipping in the USA. They can be glazed in the color I am using for the bowl or a color of your choice. I am going to buy purple and pink glaze next week for some special Bob's so they can be used here too. PM to order or email me if you have that.





Making a mold is such horrific work. Especially if the mold is huge. I just couldn't give up on this one. After all this bowl is for Psycho Tiki D one of the good guys.

I decided to use whatever part of the cast my label scraper knife could reach.

I cut the two walls out of the mold pieces.

I found a board the right size.

I covered it with plastic wrap so that the bottom clay wouldn't stick.

I rolled out clay to the right size.

I, I, I sorry about that. I soaked the sides in water because they were so dry. Then I pressed them into the clay and used slip and clay ropes to secure the sides to the bottom.

I used slip and ropes to do the same on the outside.

Next I made another wall to go around the woman.


I secured it into place.

I never liked how the girl sat without a wall on one side. I removed clay to lower the wall not remove it. Now I like the bowl better. I think she's safer. OK Psycho?

Now this may not work. The walls were very dry. To give the bowl a chance I wrapped it up so that the wall and the bottom can dry slowly.

What's left to do if it does work is to make the bowl look like bamboo and to add the words Missionary's Downfall to the top back edge. Stay Tuned!

Now on to Loki Tikis Missionary's Downfall alter bowl.

I carved rocks into the removable bowl.

To support the bowl in the beginning I had to make a solid back wall.

Now that it is firm I removed clay.

This formed two more pillars. They still need to dry more before turning them into rock.

The pillar on the left is not finished the one on the right is done.

Now both front pillars are finished. Today I will finish the back pillars. This is the woman Loki Tiki chose.


I started Elvis Bob for Atomic Chick last night. Photos tomorrow!

Cheers, Wendy

YAY!

Zero Tiki we'll be very happy to have the certificate. I'm so sorry your prints were ruined.

hang10tiki hum a punch bowl size might be fun but I think you'll have to build something for your yard. Is that up next?

Progress Report on the Wish List

My personal wish is to finish a painting for Oasis 12. So I've started one by coating the canvas with gesso.

My cat never gets on table tops until today. I put my mail on the table and then started to paint. She guarded the mail while I worked!


Next on to Loki Tikis Missionary's Downfall Alter Bowl. I'm waiting to hear back if he accepts this design.

I finished all the rock carving. The clay had dried a lot and it was scary pressing so hard to chisel. It all worked out.


I had enough pieces to start loading them into the bottom level of the kiln. I needed the counter space to continue to work. Dan used the air compressor to dust them. This one is mymotikis Super Carved Bob.


I've almost finished the Elvis Bob for Atomic Chick. I just need to add one more decoration. I hope to make that today.






It's Saturday. Yippee. So what shall I work on today? Hummmm how about more Bobs?

Enjoy your weekend, Wendy
