zerostreet and VampiressRN your are correct. If I can pull it off Otto will be the Spy in my painting. I keep working on his face and then have to start over again because something is off. I won't give up. The fact you two could tell with so little done gives me hope.

Kele thank you so much for the photo. It was so much fun to see the Torch with the two other hula women. I love your gravel art for the swap. I wish I could remember those I did when I was young. That was always on my Christmas list.

hang10tiki thank you for your visit. I always smile when I see your name.

If you follow my thread routinely you will know that I hate to run my kiln unless it is full. So while the wedding mugs and bavtechs mugs dry I've been making more items for the wish list. If I get them bisque fired with these then when the list is open the first orders will just need to be glazed. So here's what I've been up too.

My brand new Moai bowl. The sculpt for this bowl is the same one I did for the chunk lamps. 3 heads per bowl.



I made the bowl rocky too.


One of the Kings Goblets. I'll have different styles for the wish list.



The Kings Goblet and the War God bowl are all with Joniece Franks sculpt.



Dan earns tikis from me by doing all the clean up with the hose. He's giving me his sexy look here.


I owed Dan a PNG mug. I used the new taller Bob for this one.


How am I doing? Your messages make my day. Cheers, Wendy

I've really been missing the Wendy & Dan Show. Everything looks great and my prediction is you're going to have a lot of fun with that king's goblet idea.

Atomic Tiki Punk thank you.

Professor G I bet we missed you more.

hang10tiki your were reading my mind!

Progress Report:

When I chain myself to the table and stay in the garage all day I can get a lot done. I'm just pulling the pieces off the shelves and assembling them. Here's what I did yesterday.

A while back Psycho Tiki D found some green-ware at a garage sale. He brought these to me. They were cast super thin. I worked to sand them and ended up with 10 that didn't break.

There are five of each design. We have some of these in our collection from hobbyists, they are fun stackers pre-Munktiki. I'm going to use them to test glazes. This should be fun. Thank you so much Duane.


Here I'm prepping to make some bowls.


Those that I made earlier this week were firm enough to turn over.

I carved the acknowledgment to Joniece Frank for sculpting this War God on their bottoms.


I made one three headed Bumatay bowl. I forgot to take a finished photo.


This is a Frankoma small tiki bowl. More rare than the War God. If you own an original, please contact me.



Remember the Volcano bowl I've made for the Swap and for Dan? Well he loves to put mugs into bowls for display. He requested one of his "will work for tikis" as a matching Volcano Bob bowl.


Who suggested that I put sugar cube with rum tops on the Bob's? I did it.



Now its back to work. Wendy

Wendy, you've been busier than a 3-legged cat trying to bury crap on a frozen pond!

Some really cool stuff; I'm surprised the fragile greenware stackers survived! The PNG Bob is cool and the Volcano Bob is awesome!

Ted Tiki thank you.

MadDogMike we just took our cat to the vet to check her rear. She was fine but I'll keep her away from frozen ponds!

Progress Report:

The Sacramento Crawl information has been posted under California Events.
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=43387&forum=17&4
People are signing up for the crawl mug there. I'm making two lists in order. One for those who attend and one for those who don't but would like a left over mug. Eric Banks is number one on that list.

We always try to do a mug based on a tiki place that once existed in Sacramento. The first year it was the Zombie Hut/ Coral Reef. Last year was a Tiki Bob decanter. This year will be Hawaiian Hut.

Roughing it out to match the menu cover. See Psycho Tiki D's thread on this place.
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=40039&forum=2



Because molding is hard I'll make the lei for each mug by hand after casting.


All of these items will be available on the next wish list. I'm bisque firing some ahead of time but I won't glaze them. Colors will be chosen by the buyer.

I finished the Bumatay Fish Bowl.




I rounded out the bottom of the bowl.


This is now a Tapa War God Bowl.



This is a Flame War God Bowl.


Today I need to work on Otto's Spy painting. I hope I can get it right.

Cheers, Wendy

Thank you LoriLovestiki, I like your swap Pele too.

hang10tiki you did a great job. I don't know how you control your chisels to make such smooth lines. I've not gotten to perfection yet but I'll never stop trying. I've sent this on to Joniece so she may enjoy it too.

Progress Report:

Roge who makes the chunk lamps also turns our tikis into statues. He first did the Moai and now he wants the Bumatay Fish as a statue. I use a small heater to melt the Roma #3 clay. It is so hard that this speeds up the process.

I added it to the back of the Bumatay to make it more substantial as a statue.

Decades ago I took the exam to enter dental school. One of the things we had to do was carve plaster blocks into a key and a lock. I've found that to work well with clay projects. So to the fish I added an extended bottom as the key. Then into the base I carved the lock.

Back view. When fitted together I will add clay to seal the key into place but first I need to finish the base.

I removed clay to add waves to the base.

Now I will add clay to lock the pieces together.

All done. It's time to visit Roge in Grass Valley.



Years ago when I was still working with Sculpey clay I would find a vintage bowl and make tikis to attach to it. One of my favorite bowls had the sides caved in. I made and added Tahitian style tikis.


Today when I opened the molds I decided to cave in the sides of this bowl and to add the small Frankoma tikis. I first made little seats added sticky clay and sat them down to attach.



Last night I worked more on the Sacramento Crawl mug. This one will be a challenge.


Now I need to work on the Spy/Tiki painting and Otto's face. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki thank you thank you thank you. My wish list asked to be photoshopped and you keep filling all my wishes.

Progress Report:

Tiki Oasis Spy/Tiki painting. I had to start over on Otto's face. So I devised a new trick. I put part of the photo I'm copying on his face and taped a pin that told me where to start his eyebrow and the angle.
Then I painted the eyebrow. I'll use this for each step so that I don't have too much space between nose and mouth etc.. These huge photos really help. I can see his cheek bone is off, I'll fix that.


I've started the back of the Sacramento Ohana Crawl mug for October. For the back I've copied the matchbook. I have to pull objects closer together so that molding will work.

I'm fine tuning the front as I go.

I can see that the shape of the huge lei is off, I'll fix it some. Again I've compressed for molding. Here I had to put the West on top of Sacramento.


My plan with this mug is to hand carve tapa down the sides and across the bottom under the hut. Each mug will be done by hand so there will be variations. I will also add the lei around her neck before firing. Once the base glaze is finished I'll hand paint each mug adding color and the woman's face. Busy busy busy.

Thanks for stopping by, Wendy
