The 7o's Elvis shirt is the perfect touch.

I made y'all a replacement Thai-style Shrimp and Mushrooms but I couldn't figure out how to pack it for airmail. Thanks for the beautiful work you do and for being so supportive of my food site.

That's risky Wendy, to take 2 icons that people either love or hate ~ Elvis & Bob ~ and merge them together. But you are pulling it off wonderfully (of course)!

W
When your all done with Elvis Bob you need to
stand up on stage, curl up one side of your lip
and say:
"thank you, thank you very much"

Looks great

Holler Waller you got it, those girls could make Rome fall today.

Atomic Tiki Punk thank you. When Elvis Bob was requested I was worried but you all have made me feel good.

dartharnie the shirt was her one request. Yesterday I told Atomic Chick I was adding the TCB necklace and she said she has worn one for 10 years and that would make it perfect. I love coincidences. See Below.

Professor G please feel free to tag your site link to your messages. I would like it to be easy for everyone to go there. You shrimp dish is totally unlike my take out meal. You may come cook her any time.

MadDogMike I like that, merging icons. And as hang10 and Elvis said, "Thank you, thank you very mug". I mean much.

Wish List Progress Report.

Yesterday was a very good work day for me.

Fisrt off I've discovered that plastic containers are far better for storing my clay. The plastic bags would have pieces of dry clay fall into the wet making lumps. I use clay that is soft or very soft to add on or adhere parts. Now this is perfect. While I work I leave a wet paper towel over the clay so that it stays moist.


I assembled three Tiki Bob bowls. These are for mymotiki, Deb and BaconSM

I turn them over to add clay.

Then I use a wet paper towel to smooth it.


Next I cleaned up the Bumatay bowls that I'd made yesterday for Psycho Tiki D and Joanne. The fish on the left how attaching it messes it up but the one on the right shows that I fix that.


On the shelf the Bumatays will dry and the 3 Bob bowls will set while in plastic bags.


Now it is time to let Psycho Tiki D's Missionary's Downfall bowl dry a bit. My friend Norma cut some bamboo for me to use as a guide. I need to sculpt the bowl to look more like bamboo.


Because Elvis Bob's chin is long I had to hang his necklace crooked. But hopefully it gets his message across just the same. He is done and will now dry out.


Now that most of the bowls are made and drying I'll be working on Bob mugs in all kinds of fun styles like Frankenstein and Pac Man.

So That's All Folks! See you tomorrow. Cheers, Wendy

Jungle Trader your Minnie's mug is still one of our favorites. I like those salads too. Thank you.

Big Kahuna I hope Atomic Chick feels the love.

Wish List Progress Report:

I carved the water waves into the side of each Bumatay Fish Bowl.


I put them in the shed to dry. When they are I'll have my first load to bisque fire. I have made one more Bumatay bowl on spec. It has 3 rather than 4 of the fish. It's price is $250 and is #1 since it is short a fish.


Next I worked on Psycho Tiki D's Missionary's Downfall bowl. I needed to make these strips of clay look like Bamboo.


Here's how I finished it.


Next I used these rubber stamps.


The first bowl I made (that was ruined in the mold making process) I had misspelled Missionary's leaving out an i. This time I misspelled Downfall leaving out the w. I swear this bowl is cursed.


Clay is very forgiving and I was able to fix it. I always carve the letters after using the stamp as a guide. I added a bit of carving to the edge and now it's also in the shed drying.


This must be the year of the topless woman for my works of art.


Last night I spent 15 minutes per mug to fine tune them and to carve around the face. I did 12. During that time we watched The Great Race, Missing and Desperate Housewives. I like accomplishing something while the TV plays. It's a good start. Soon I'll be working on just the Bob mugs.


This morning we poured a few extras in case I ruin something. Happy Days, Wendy

It's here! My Zombie Torch was delivered today. Bigger even then my decanters. After much shuffling of my mugs I think I've found it's place amongst the others and in good company. It is a quandary which side to display. Thinking I'll just turn mine upon it's shelf routinely because one side is not enough. Thank you so much!

Wendy,

Very happy to see the Missionary's Downfall bowl progress. Looks like it is finally taking the proper form and the bamboo features really look great.

Thanks for the daily updates.

PTD

mymotiki thank you so much. Busy is good but there aren't enough hours in the day. I did my Spanish lesson at 10 PM last night. I hope the I meet expectations for the Wish List.

whoseyrtiki I love love love the photos. It could only be better if you were in them. I like my mug being next to my friend beachbumz mug.

McTiki one day I will be posting your mug here. I believe you did request green. I have a binder with all the request details printed.

LoriLovesTikis you mug is posted below. You name is on the bottom back. I think you should join in and make something for the swap. Then I'd have a chance to have it come my way.

Kele I'm looking forward to everyone posting photos of their mugs so I'll see where they ended up. A photo of the owner is what I long for. Photos are a gift.

PTD I am so super happy with your bowl. The journey has been long and hard. This morning I went to check it out and NO cracks and its half way dry. Adding all these pieces together was a learning experience and I believe all the tricks worked.

Wish List Progress Report:


I've gotten more art made than can fit into the kiln. But so much of it has a long way to go before it is dry enough. If it goes into the kiln too soon the water will boil and the art will break. I'll also sand and fine tune each piece again.


I set up in the garage to work on the Bob mugs.

I have two that require Tapa designs so I printed some Tapa pictures.


The LoriLovesTikis Super Carved Bob mug. Finished.





the Harro Tapa mug finished.

Note the H's around the bottom.





More tomorrow. Thanks for checking in. Cheers, Wendy
