That tiki farm mug is wonderful. How the heck would you hold it.

Every time I would go to pick it up it would seem like someone else beat me to it. An "Eternal Mug-o-Tug-o-War" as it were. Love it.

I also like the modification possibilities. Furry hands, Vampire hands, Zombie hands, cold paint nail polish, rings and so on...Knowing you Wendy, you already have over a dozen requests in your private messages

I sure do love getting up in the morning and reading all your posts. The voting has closed and I'm thrilled to not paint these. I think the vote proved that this was the right way to go. Now I'll make the signature cards and box them up. THANK YOU!


Tikilongbeach I'll be in Long Beach for the December sale at DTB's. I'll bring any left over to the event.
AtomicTikiPunk I wish I were young enough to get carded, even for voting.
19tikichef62 I'll be having more time to work on the Wish List. Your Bob is the challenge I'm looking forward too.
McTiki its always good to have you pop in here. Maybe I should mold this mug.
MadDogMike I'm counting the days until your visit, hummm can I count that high? I'll use the fingers on each of my three hands.
dartharnie I love the Eternal Tug of War. I thought about a Tiki Farm Ring and scary fingernails when I made it. I think you are on the right track for this mug.

Progress Report:

I opened the kiln and success!



Marone Tikis bowl came out beautifully. The back and red usually pull apart. There were only a couple of these areas.

I repaired them with black and gray enamel and I'll bake it in the home oven for 45 min.'s to set and then its good to go.



I'm sorry for the blurry photos.

Aged for Alii Tiki and an Orange/Red for Hale Tiki


Red with black specks for Alii Tiki and another one for hiltiki or do you like the red/orange better?

Brown with green highlights.


The only super carved super tall Bob I've made so far.



The Bumatay bowl I've made for Dan so he'll keep working with me.



The glaze was a bit too thick and ran to the bottom. Dan liked the effect so yippee.


The Eric October bowl has more problems. Two areas of glaze popped off. This bowl is cursed. Dan will take a wire brush to it and I'll glaze again. There is always hope until a hairline shows up. When that happens I quit.


All the items out of the kiln need to have their bottoms sanded. Then they are finished.

Thanks for stopping by. Wendy

Wendy, another successful kiln opening. Love Dan's new Bumatay bowl. I have to agree with him that the pooling glaze at the bottom has a very cool look to it. Almost looks like a whirlpool in the ocean. I noticed in the Eric bowl that there was some swirling around the bottom edge. Very cool look. I'm sure you will be able to get that bowl wrangled into submission. If you continue to have issues, why don't you fill it full of limes and call it a fruit bowl. Fill it with some fake limes and it could be a cool display piece.

Love your Tiki Farm entry. The idea of being able to customize the hand is a great idea. You have opened up a HUGE can of worms. Just think of a Zombie mug with the face being a bit aged and the zombie hand cut off at the wrist. Oh I have a ton of idea running through my head.

Can't wait to see what you work on next!

- Dale

The Tiki Farm entry was wild Wendy...certainly stiff competition amongst the many talents.

I am ABSOLUTELY in love with the blue and taupe/brown inside of the Bumatay bowl...breath-taking. I love how you pay Dan off in mugs.

littlegiles that glaze is something special. I have a minor in Chemistry and it took a chemist to invent that glaze. My sister used to buy huge bags of chemicals to mix her own. I don't think I'll ever do that. However I am asked to try new techniques. I received this today from one of my Wish List customers.

I'll list it here to keep my thoughts streamlined on this so I don't drive you batty with my requests ---
3Tikis around the bowl done with Duncan Grey Spice IN1028 (or Mocha Spice IN1040) hoping they'll look like stone and somewhat simple next to the dynamic glazed bowl
Outside of bowl done with Mayco Jungle Gem ALLIGATOR CG973NT
Inside the bottom of the bowl and the upper portion of the inner rim with Mayco FIRECRACKER CG756 & inner walls of bowl with Mayco WILDFIRE CG954NT ( I think these together will be a very cool look)
From what I see I'm sure the Wargod with the Red & Black specks looks awesome !!!
I like the Aged Wargod -but it seems too clean and even if that makes sense. Almost like exaggerated makeup. Can it be hit with some glaze and re-fired to work some patina onto it?
I have some ideas for that if you can do it.
Overall a light brushing of Duncan INDIAN SUMMER IN1950 will add a yellowish smoke filled bar type stain and it looks like this glaze has some random grainy bits too,
and maybe some touches and rubs in highlight & recessed areas using dabs & streaks (I'm thinking of how mineral deposits occur or copper patinas) could use Duncan OCEAN MIST IN1068, LEMON IN1071, and hit with some Brown & Red, Grey or greens.
If it ups the cost to re-glaze & refire let me know, but I think you will understand the look I'm trying to describe here. Old and crusty - a knocked on the chin but still strong kinda artifact piece.

I'm going to try to fill his Wishes!!! Stay tuned.

hang10tiki my hand is pretty scary. I got my dad's hands and feet I'm just lucky he had small feet. I may mold my entry into the Tiki Farm contest and use it for projects. I'll remove their name of course.

VampiressRN thank you. Dan places his orders every few days but he has to be patient. I ordered boxes for the crawl mugs and they arrive tomorrow.

Progress Report:

Dan took the wire brush to the Eric October bowl and the repair patch popped off. Hummm what will I do next?



Dan was outside sanding but first he insured that I would stay and glaze.


Professor G requested a War God in Mocha Spice with blue specks. These crystals have lead. Since these are not mugs its ok.

Three layers with the crystals.


Next I did an experiment. I covered the War God with slate grey, then I put a clear glaze on top that should crack (that doesn't always happen).

Next I added some lava. It is moves too much I'll have a mess.



This is my kitchen nook/glazing room. Poor Dan, he has his coffee in the garage mans cave.



This bowl is for Joanne.


The kiln was loaded with each item far from the next. Crystals like to expload and stick on other tikis.

I hope these were far enough apart.


This load opens tomorrow.

I appreciate your visits and comments. Thank you always, Wendy

I'm really looking forward to seeing the statue, Wendy, just to find out what color mocha spice actually is. I will, of course, keep my promise to you not to taste the lead paint chips, even though it would have brought back such memories of my childhood. It's always fun to see the beautiful work you do.

Those new glazes look like they will be a lot of fun! Can't wait to see how it all looks.

I think your new anklet looks a bit heavy. HAHA! Dan is a caring but brutal master. LOL

Sorry to see that repair pop off the Eric bowl again. Just leave the dent and glaze over it. Is that possible?
