Wow, super cool Bob bowl. I can't wait to see it finished. I know it's a lot of work sticking the small Bob's to the bowl.

The Fire and Ice set of Forbidden Island Tiki Crate stautes (50) and mugs (60).




























Another week and I should have them finished are ready to package for the special party. Forbidden Islands 5th anniversary party on April 21, 2011 a Thursday. The actual anniversary date is 4/22/11 so I put that on the bottom along with the number of the mug/statue.

Swizzle, Queen Kamehameha and zerostreet thank you for your notes, they each brought a smile to my face, I appreciate them very much.

PockyTiki, Tiki Diablo put out a wrestling mug a few years ago, on a Tiki Bob it's a scary idea.

Mr.NoNaMe thank you for the poem I laughed as I repeated it.

Thank you everyone for your time, Wendy

MauiTiki, sticking the Bob's on the bowl was easier than getting the bowl unstuck from my table. It's fine now but that was a lesson to remember.

As i've just learnt from my classes so far, watching others glazing their pieces, it's amazing how different the colour of some glazes look before they are fired compared to what they actually change too. I wasn't sure what the statues would turn out like from your previous post of them all sitting on the table, they looked a funny red-brown, pink and grey, but they turned out fantastic. It's a real transformation. Well done Wendy, great work.

LOL Tiki and Beachbumz. I'm so glad you like the choices that I've made for the statue and mug Tiki Crates. I did a whole series of glaze tests before choosing and it was worth the work. Thank you.

Swizzle since you are on your way let me tell you what Babalu told me. Glaze Test, Glaze Test, Glaze Test. The photos of glazes in the order books and even the chips in the shops do not represent the colors well enough. Before glazing your art test the glaze.

I copied Babalu's glaze test wall and it works well for me. But MadDogMike and MauiTiki have other ways of doing this that I envy. I make clay "L's" and bisque fire them. Next I paint the glaze in three strips on each. 1, 2 and 3 layers of glaze and fire again. Oh but first I use an underglaze pencil on the bottom to label them and I record all the information in a binder.

When I go to glaze something I go to my wall and choose the colors L's and take them and the jars with me to where I'm painting.

Babalu's wall of test strips.


Some of my test strips in the kiln. Note that using a fork to make indentations will show you how the glaze will highlight your detail work.


My test wall.


Swizzle you should start now with your first tiki mug and keep on going. Enjoy, Wendy

We're going to a jazz show that night & we're busy that weekend, dangnabbit! Sorry we're going to miss the goings on and seeing these beauties in person. Awesome work, Wendy!

Hi TikiKirby, well I've been at it again. I'm always afraid that something will blow up in the kiln or that I'll ruin it with glaze that pops off so I've made more Bob's. I've posted these on the Tiki Bob show thread too but I want to keep everything I do here as well.


This is a shouldhavebeenbowl. No Tiki Bob bowls were made but they should have made them! Now I am.

My super carved Tiki Bob.


This is our family room. The shriner hat is used for my next Bob.

Shriner Zelzah Bob.

If this photo is blurry to you go to rehab. 60's Peacenik Bob.

Tiki Bob Decanter.


Tiki Roberto. Name changed to South of the Boarder Bob. On Gallery page you can see my South of the Boarder Bastard that I made years ago, page one and scroll!



Now I'll take a break while they dry then back to work. Cheers, Wendy

It all looks awesome Wendy!!! If you leave the Bob tops open on the Bob Bowl, you'll have 3 more places to drinks from - you could serve 4 different drinks at once (remember Babalu's Hiphipahula Bowl?)

Speaking of tops open, I was confused by the FI mugs vs statues. They are the same sculpt? The mugs have open tops and the statues have closed tops? For some reason, I thought the statue was something else and I couldn't figure out why you forgot to open the tops of some of the mugs

Hi MDM, thank you, the two Tiki Crates are from the same sculpture but open on the top for the mug and open on the bottom for the statue. Then I glazed the two sets differently and took your idea for the set as fire and ice, thank you! The bottoms of the Bob's on the bowl are open so not this time for multiple drinks. (:

Big Kahuna, all the tall Bob's are 1 of 1's but I will make the bowl again for my husband and per requests. I still need to carve rings around the tikis on the Bob's that have smooth sides. The glazing will be the challenge for each of these but I'm looking forward to it.

Cheers, Wendy
