Wendy, please stop! I'm either going to have to stop reading your threads or start direct-depositing part of my paycheck into your bank account!
Here's #3, safe & sound, in its new home.


Thank you so much!
Mahalo,
Rick

Wendy, I thought a turtle that "fit" would be a bit small for a decent tapa but put my faith in your brain & hands. It already looks better than I imagined. Hang10 - I did LOL.

Big Kahuna, thank you so much for the photos. It means a lot to me that I'm getting to see where my work has gone.

Holler Waller that could be a scary way to go!

The Zombie Torch sold out but I still have half of them to hand deliver here at home and a batch to drop off at Caliente. Some photos will be a long way off.

Wish List Progress Report:

Lori Loves Tiki had a request that Bob had a hand holding a little tiki. My first Bob with a hand! He's holding tiny Bob. At this point it was too sticky to fix detail. I had to re-carve the designs around the hand after affixing it to the mug.





I've been doing a lot of gift Bob's that I can't show yet. But here's one that is not going to give anything away.



For Holler Wallers Tapa Turtle Bob I want to keep it simple enough that the turtle shows up well. I I'll be doing a strip tapa design. Here's how far I got yesterday.





Here Comes Murph Dog. Having Bob become half Bob and half Dog started with Tiki Ba for Loki Tiki. This time around I'd had some practice and I cold remember steps like cut off the mouth.


I started by working the face and collar which will be cold painted with dogie pirates.


The ears were a challenge. I started this way so I could have equal sizes but as I progressed that didn't work out.

I think ears are complicated.

Murph Dogs ears changed position in every example photo.

So in the end I just did what was going to be safe for the mug.


His name will be worked on to deepen it.

When he firms up I will do a light brushing of fur lines.

A proud dog.


Please PM me if you have suggestions for fine tuning your mugs. Cheers, Wendy

I'm one of those "not a Bob fan" people but know I need to have some kind of a Bob in my collection or live in mug shame. It is that goofy smile of his face that annoys me...I just want to slap him...LOL. Anyway, Wendy you may be my salvation. The Turtle Bob and the Mug-Toting Bob have the potential to grow on me...so will be watching the progression on these. Not a Witco fan either...maybe you should make a Witco style mug and then I can just get these two genres on board and get it over this dispassionate situation.

Wendy, have you tried a Zombie Bob or a Creature from the Black Lagoon Bob? Love the Turtle Bob and the Tapa Bob holding a baby Bob, Elvis Bob & Murph Dog Bob - all are just incredibly inspired and your creativity is endless. I am truly amazed at the gift you have at sculpting. I have to commission something!!!! Since I'm a Marine Biologist maybe a Black Lagoon Bob?

TT

Wendy, I'm blown away by how well you've captured murph dog in clay. You have an amazing eye! I'm already making a mental dream list of the future mugs I want you to make. I think you're going to be swamped with orders. Hmm... swamped = Black Lagoon Bob. I think Tavarua Tiki is on to something!

VampiressRN I can wipe that smile right off his face! Check out FrankenBob. I can't wait to see you today. I'll be playing hooky from the clay.

little lost tiki you inspire me every day. Thank you for keeping track of what I do here.

Tavarua I love doing these Bobs and I know yours will be super fun to do.

Murphdog I am so happy you like the resemblance to both your dog and Bob.

Lori Loves Tiki here's some help. I bought the wrong pinks. They are IN's but not the type that accumuates in the carvings. So best bet will be purple or turquoise. See what's up with your Bob below.

zerostreet I've been so busy I haven't check in on you for a while. I need to see what you've been up too. I'm glad you like the dog.

hang10tiki Bob had an amputation but we hospital people are good at repairs. See below. Just look at all the work you have done to your beautiful bar room.


Wish List Progress Report:

I bought lots of new colors that all needed to have glaze tests.


On pre bisqued forms I did 1, 2 and 3 layers of each glaze. Now they need to fire.


I had no room left on my glaze test wall so I put Dan to work.


We made an entire lower section. I'll have to watch out for nails.


I moved the tests around so that I may keep all the IN glazes together.


Murphdog has fur.


His name was fine tuned.


Murphdog and TapaTurtleBob are now drying in the kiln room.


The name is on the bottom of the mug.


I've started FRANKENBOB

Roughing him out.

He looks like a moai head. Should I remove his chin to keep him more Bob like?




Additions sometimes come loose.

Thaks to MadDogMike I have Magic Mend. Today I'll see if it works.It did let me carve the tiny Bob some more before putting him back on.


I had an extra bowl Bob so I'm trying the same technique to save the bowl I broke. If it works I'll have an extra.



I peeked into the kiln and got a blast of heat in my face but I still got a quick photo. Today I'll open it and start to glaze. I'll also continue to work on the other Bob mugs.


I will also take a mid day break to see all the Sacramento Ohana at Cha Cha's for lunch.

Oh and we need to build some new shelves for the glaze I just bought. I think I'll have to spread out this work over a few days!!! Cheers, Wendy

Oh I just saw the terrific photo Holler Waller posted, thank you so much!

If you just heard a **thud**, that was me being knocked out by Frankie. That is too cool for me to put into words... and a speechless ZeroTiki is a rarity. Wow.
