Wendy,
I love how you are copying the vintage logos! I am so impressed by your artistic talent to be able to do that!

Wendy, Otto is coming along quite handsomely! I love the way you do "left-brain" painting because that's the way I think too.

Thank you Kele and Vamp. It is fun to imagine that these places had mugs and that they looked like this. I hope that one day we'll have more information on this place. Psycho Tiki D started a good thread.

MadDogMike explain that to me. My right side is having a problem understanding. Maybe I got the sides mixed up. I do like to figure out tricks for all that I do. Tomorrow you will see another MadDogMike inspired trick that I did for the first time today!!!

Progress Report:

The Sacramento Crawl mug is now drying.

I carved in more detail on the Hawaiian Hut backside.


Our trip to see Miguel and Roge in Grass Valley was fun. I dropped off the Bumatay that now has a wave base. He will cast this as a statue like the Moai Head.

http://www.etsy.com/shop/ArtLampDesignByRoger?page=1
The Bumatay Sea Life Lamps are now available and can be ordered on Etsy. I'll post the information on Marketplace updating that thread. I did the sculpts and the lamps are all his creations. Here's the Bumatay with a sea turtle.

Here's a table with all the different sea life creatures I sculpted in a variety of colors.


I'm still working on Otto's face. It is not right yet.



The green-ware was dry enough to fire. I sanded them and Dan used the air compressor to blow off the dust. Sunday morning I'll open the kiln to see if they made it. I couldn't fit everything but those that had deadlines made it into the kiln.


My cat always runs when I want to take her photo. Yesterday I was so lucky to get these photos. On the top of the fence is the bird that squawks at her all day and bites her butt!



I hope you are having a fun Saturday, Wendy

Wendy, as I remember biology from the last century, the left brain is analytical and rational ~ responsible for the concrete & technical like math and science. The right brain is random and intuitive ~ responsible for abstracts like art & music. Of course, both sides of most people's brain work, but one is usually stronger. I imagine a typical right-brained artist to be someone like Kinny who stands in front of an easel and magically tranfers the image from his imagination to the canvas with nothing but a brush and paint. I have always considered myself more of a left-brained artist: I can't draw a straight line without a ruler BUT ~ I know how to use a ruler. I enjoy the challenge of breaking a form down into it's individual geometric shapes so that I can recreate that form. It's part of why I enjoy ceramics, the challenge of figuring out how to do it. What household object can I slump clay over and then reshape to make what I want? What can I leave inside to support it until it dries that will burn out when I fire it? Which parts can I glaze first so that when I glaze other parts afterward I can wipe off the excess unfired glaze from the already glazed areas? Where do you put the parting lines on a mold so that each piece moves in a direction to avoid undercuts?

Thank you Kele its always fun to read your comments.

Mike I think like you do finding ways to help projects along. I think it works well for us. I've always wanted to be like Kenny to just go wild and see what happens. Maybe one day you and I can have a go wild contest.

Progress Report:

MadDogMike you were instructing a person on how to indent the bottom of a flat cast. I always buy things I think I can use with clay. I had this sock darning tool that you insert into a sock and then darn. I used it after dunking in water to indent the bottom of my mug. Thank you, I was going to carve it. This is better.


I decided to make a couple of bowls. the first one I again pushed in the sides but this time I added Tiki Bobs.



Next up I made a Moai bowl.

I like to have the bowl suspended.

For fun I protruded the lower lip on each Moai just like the old China Sails mug.


After I attach parts I keep them covered for 24 hours to slow dry. Then I cover and uncover for a few days until I know they are not going to crack apart.

Today I open the kiln to see what has survived.

I hope you all have a fine Sunday, Wendy

Wendy, you never cease to amaze me with your creativity. It is so fun to watch your projects as they progress. The Moai bowl is great! Love the lower lip detail. Keep up the posts, I look forward to them every day.

MadDogMike I saw your King Kamehameha, I hope I spelled that right. It looks super. It's the best King bowl I've ever seen. About the darning tool, I got it for the inside of bowls and now it's for the outside too, thank you.

hang10tiki I'm sending you an offer by email, thanks for stopping by it reminded me.

littlegiles comments like yours will keep me posting each day. I love to read the comments or if there are none I check the numbers and I know that what I posted was looked at so that works too. I'm glad you like the Moai, that China Sails mug is one of our favorites. We all swipe ideas from the vintage mugs.

Progress Report:

I think that I have enough items poured for the next Wish List. I will open the list the first week in August. It will open Wednesday August 1st and close at midnight PST on Sunday August 5th. I will post photos of what's available to be made and what each item will cost to order. Shipping will be added to that cost. The first on the list may be able to snag those that I've already made but just need to be glazed. Remember that I don't work with deadlines. I work hard and as fast as possible but that's it. I will be making the Sacramento Crawl mug and going to Oasis at the same time. At least this time all the items have been poured and cleaned and I just need to take them off the shelf and go to work on the creative part.

I opened the kiln yesterday morning and the only cracks were in the mugs that Psycho Tiki D gave me as a gift. They were so fragile and thin. Of the ten only five survived without hairlines from the bisque fire. I'll glaze the survivors in the future. It has still been fun to work with them. Thank you PTD.

Top shelf in the kiln. When firing green ware it is OK to let them touch. Glazing is completely different, items would all stick together.

Bottom shelf in the kiln.

One of the five that cracked. Some the entire way from top to bottom.

Even though I sanded it all before firing I can see areas the need to be sanded again before glazing. Because of that we didn't hose them off yet.

Tomorrow morning I will sand and Dan will get drenched washing them off. One spec of dust and the glaze will not stick.

I was so relieved that the wedding mugs and the Super Carved for bavtech came out just fine. I will be glazing them by Wednesday.


littlegiles here are a couple of better photos of the Moai bowl.



Speaking of Moai's Dan was doing his Rosetta Stone yesterday and up popped this photo.


I've made several bowls with the Bumatay Fish design. Now I've made a couple with the Bumatay Tiki design. This one is with coconut carvings on the bowl. Or it could be a looked at as a woven basket.




Even though I wrap the cast items in multiple layers of plastic wrap they still firm up. Before I make something I repeatedly dunk them in a bucket of water and allow them to soak up some moisture. Here I'm cutting off the fins so that it goes from fish to tiki.

Then I assemble them and put them in a plastic bag so that they do not crack.

It is fun to change the shape of the bowl and to add carvings. This one is tapa.


Well friends that's it for today. I hope I'm keeping the Dan and Wendy show alive! Cheers, Wendy

As usual everything looks fantastic, but I absolutely LOVE where you are going with that Hawaiian Hut mug. How small can you sculpt fine details Wendy? I ask because I have an idea that sometime I would like to have you make me a new inkwell tiki style, and it would have to have one of those patented topless Wendy hula gals.
