Wendy, I don't mean to be difficult, but how big is the "small Bob"? Cuz I'm really into miniatures, like smaller is better for me.
Everything you produce is SO AMAZING! I am in awe!

Hi Friends, I'm continuing to work on the Wish List. I'm enjoying the challenges you come up with and I'll always post photos of my progress.

Sandra Dee, thank you, please try to come to the Artists Reception on Saturday to see the painting in person and to have fun with the activities. See you soon friend.

hang10tiki when I was a tour guide in Yellowstone you were probably trying to learn how to ride your bike (the summers of 74 and 75)! Thank you so many times.

Professor G lots of tiki ideas that could be made and for you so many dishes to create and photos to take! It just fun to keep going and going and going.

Progress Report:

Menu from the long gone Hawaiian Hut that was in West Sacramento.

The Sacramento Crawl mug. The first two came out of the molds yesterday.

They are rough and need a lot of fine tuning.

Mold line are bad because I had to dig the original out of the molds.

I decided to carry on the carving around the mug. All done by hand. I still need to fine tune the words at the bottom.

These will be glazed and hand painted.



On the first two I'll use to find the right glaze and paint colors. They are missing one element. I forgot to add the lei around the girls neck after taking it out of the mold. I'll remember on the rest of them. Any one can ask to be on the left-overs list. Those who attend get them first.

19tikichef62 has ordered a Volcano Bob with a Missionary's Downfall woman as Pele and Bob will be holding a shrunken Missionary's head. The girl will and Bob will have Maori style tattoos. Now this is one over the top project, just the kind I love. Here's where I'm at right now.

It takes a 6 piece mold to cast her. It's a puzzle to put together.

It also means there are 6 mold lines to remove during clean up.

The lava flows over her lap and attaches to her side.






Yesterday we ran off to an Estate Sale. We found a few tiki treasures. The mask may not be tiki but we like it. We waited in 101 degree heat for 50 minutes to get into the house. It ended up worth it.


Thanks for checking in, Wendy

Hi 19, hang and Mad, I so happy to log and and find you all posting. Thank you so much. It is large and the shrunken head will add on to it even more.

Kele, I measured the small Bob and he is 4 1/2 inches tall.

Now it is time to work/play with clay, Wendy

Hi Friends, no messages to answer but I can tell by the numbers that I had many guests yesterday. I thank you for stopping by to make my day special.

Progress Report:

I asked for a critique of my Spy/Tiki painting and MadDogMike was very helpful. I've done some further work on the hut rocks and Otto's right arm. I finished up the hands and gun. So here it is as it will look at the art show at Tiki Oasis 12.



I finished up the Corona Contessa's Sombrero Bob. I hope I'm getting her name right. Her other name is Sandy.

She requested palms on the back of her Bob and here they are.

All of these made it onto the top shelf of the kiln and I fired them last night. The kiln will open Sunday morning.


10tikichef62 requested that a shrunken head of Bob, held by big Bob, be added to his mug. dartharnie has requested a Wolfman Bob. Somehow I combined these orders last night. Here are some photos of 10tikichef62's mug and how I corrected it.

In the end it could get cut off and become a necklace!

I started with a small Bob that I use for the small Tiki Bob Bowls.

I cut out the face and then filled the back with sticky clay.

I built on a lava Tiki Bob hand and attached it to the small head

and then to the mug.

By the time I finished the carving he looked like Wolfman (dartharnie will this be ok for when I do your big mug?)

So I smoothed the "fur" back off and changed it to wrinkles. Then I added rope through the eyes and lips.

Next I'll find out if this works for 19tikichef62. I can change it again and again as long as it stays in plastic and doesn't dry out.

As an example as to cost for a project like this. Looking at page 116:

Tall Bob $80
Addition of the clay to change Bob to a volcano and to add the hand and shrunken head $25
To add a Missionary's Downfall woman $75
Total at the end when it is completely finished $180 plus shipping. If it blows up in the kiln or glazes wrong that's on me and I would start again until I get it right.

What I like is being your hands to make what you want in the colors you want. Orders are open until Midnight Sunday. Challenge me!! Wendy

that volcano bob...et al. is spectacular. i love seeing the integration of all your cool sculpts to date. the glaze is going take you a month but it will be so worth it.

Is the girl going naked or are you gonna sneak a skirt over her butt. Can we put it to a vote, please, 19tikichef62?

Yes, I like the wolfbob. the fur looks really cool long and i love the nose shape.

Sorry 19tikichef62 she's never getting a skirt, it would catch fire because of the lava. Besides why a skirt with her topless? I'm glad you like the shrunken head. She is now going to dry out and we'll hope no cracks develop.

dartharnie and I spoke and in the end I'm doing a Wolf Man like the one in the movies instead of Bob. This way it will fit in with his Frankenstein from last time.

hang10tiki no skirt!

Progress Report:

bavtech-Nelson is at Tiki Kon in Portland Oregon and is selling some of my art. The colored statues are done by Roge from my sculpt. Check out Marketplace for those.



We continue to work on the Sacramento Crawl mugs. 2 are fired and the kiln opens today. These two are drying and there are two to come out of the molds.


A few years back I did a smaller severed head for Gecko. He's got it molded and is going to sell them on eBay. Here is his first. Our deal is he'll make one for us and the rest are his. Will work for Gecko art is my motto. We love what he does.


I made 5 Super Carved Bob's for bavtech-Nelson to sell at Tiki Kon. The second one over is a flame version.

I am now making a 3D flame version for Joanne.




We stopped at a garage sale yesterday and I found a VHS case that I thought would fit in my kiln shed. Here's your Dan being Dan photo of the week!

It fit and we attached it. I filled it with my under-glazes that had been a mess in a box.


dartharnie and I agreed on this version of the Wolf Man.

I just start piling on sticky clay.

It dried some overnight and today I'll add even more clay.




This is the last day for Wish List Orders. I'm already way ahead of schedule. Thank you all for the orders and posts on my thread. Come say hi at Oasis too.

Cheers, Wendy

Looks like a glaze store!

The wolfman and the crawl mug are both looking great. Keep up the good work Dan and Wendy.
