What are you doing to me Wendy? You know i'm going to want a Bob now. I just need to figure out something original you can make for me, i don't want to steal any of the ideas from those you've made already for others, however that's quite difficult as they all look great. I can't wait to see the ones that are drying finished.

Also, harro's Tapa Bob is superb. I'm sure he's very happy with it. I might have to find out where he lives and pinch it off him.

I finally got over to pickup my Zombie torch mug today!

It proudly goes on the Wendy section of my shelf.



There is a opening on that shelf Wendy. What can we put in that opening?

Thanks again for the absolutely AWESOME MUG!

Everything is lovely, but the Tropical Foliage Bob and the Tapa Bob are just stunning to me. I'm always sad when you have ceramic issues, but you always learn so much from them. I look forward to seeing your new solutions to these setbacks.

Sandra Dee today I'll glaze your TNT. I'm so happy that everyone is fine with Elvis. I sure wouldn't want to mess him up.
Vampiress RN I'm only as good as my man, I'll give him your shout out.
Swizzle I loved your facebook page. I'll ship your torch tomorrow. Having my art with you and harro in Australia is super. You are converting to Bob!
harro I had to wrestle the Tapa Bob from Dan. Now Dan's on my next wish list for a tapa style mug. I'll ship your mugs tomorrow.
Danno you are on the next wish list starting after Oasis 12.
bavtech I loved your facebook page too. Thank you.
Professor G I've patched it but there is no cure for a crack like this one. Here's what I did to make it worth having.

The cracked Missionary's Downfall bowl is worth saving for display. I filled the cracked area with Elmer's wood filler. It works great for chips on ceramics.

Over fill it so that when it dries and shrinks it still fills the area. Then sand it.

Then I painted it with Liquitex Glossy paint.


The bowl that was for Loki Tikis Alter was fine but boring so I added some glaze. This is a risk because if glaze is too thick it will boil in the kiln. I hope I didn't ruin this. There's risk and there's learning experiences.





Yesterday I carved and fine tuned the two Missionary's Downfall bowls. They are now drying in the shed with the Bob mugs.

If accepted this will be Loki Tikis replacement Missionary's Downfall bowl and Alter.


This one is for Tiki Tonga.



I started work on mymotikis small Bob bowl. Three layers of glaze takes a long time. This shows 2 layers. One more and then I'll do the faces.



I wonder what I'll learn today.

Happy Mother's Day, Wendy

cdtiki someone put parts of a PBS show of our tiki collection on u-tube. Just in case you missed it here are the links. Thank you LiddleLola for providing it.

The interviewer didn't know anything about tiki and insisted on the part about the banjo. We had zero control over the content.

little lost tiki wonderful words flow from you like fine wine. I'm grateful for each one, thank you. You are such a sweetheart.

anthonymaye welcome to Sac Ohana. I look forward to meeting you. Dan will have fun taking you through the jungle. Thank you for letting me know you like my work.

cdtiki should we bring your Zombie Torch to Caliente???

Thank you everyone you I value each one of you so very much.

Progress Report on the Wish List:

Dan and I got up early and went for a 1 hour walk. Then the rest of the day I sat at the table in our nook with the TV playing while I glazed.

I did take one break to check on the two Missionary's Downfall bowls that were drying and found that one had a crack.

I dug it out from end to end.

The I soaked it in water.

Then I filled the hole with clay.

I save all the plastic wrap that comes off each project as I finish it. I re-use it in lots of ways. Here I packed it around the alter to slow the drying process. I put a plastic bag over it. Now I'll wait to see if I cured the crack or made it worse.


Now it was time to glaze, glaze and glaze. Every color has to go on three times. These dried over night and I'll glaze the faces with clear today and then go on to the next set.

These are for Sandra Dee.



This is for Deb, it still needs running red lava over the sides.


Then two for mymotiki.
A classic small Bob bowl.


A super carved with fall colors. Dark brown on the outside and orange with speckles on the inside.


In this last photo there is also a small bob super carved statue that I did because I had him left over. I used the Carribean turquoise blue glaze for the first time. I hope he's pretty in blue.

Thanks for joining me on this adventure in glazing, Wendy

Aloha Wendy!

I haven't dropped in for a while - holy smokes you're on fire - Miss Pele herself!!

There's so much creative art on this thread I consider it one of the jewels of TC 'cause each time I return I'm always inspired to create something myself, something that hopefully will inspire someone else in return...see how the world revolves? Needless to say I've been a fan from the very start and its been a inspiring journey so far (91 pages on this thread? GO GO GO!!)

Wendy - keep your artistic passion burning white hot and never let your passion smolder down to ashes okay? (sigh)

'til next time - Cheers! G

I am BEYOND excited! We are finishing up the Gator Hut and are starting on the bar so the "Lorilovestiki" Bob will have a good home.

Thanks SOOOOO much! I am forever in awe of you and your talents!

Did I ever tell you how much I love those little pineapple bowls too. You amaze me.
