While freezing and drenched in shorts and yes wet t-shirts we hosed off the ware.

After finishing the lot we hauled it back into the house and got into a hot shower.


Is that a "group" shower? hee-hee
My Dad was a Water/Sewer Authority Manager & he had a pic on his desk that said, "Save water, shower with a friend."

Look at all those Cool mugs and Bowls... Especially that Moai one!!
Maybe you could just clean them all in the hot shower instead of freezing outdoors!!

Awesome Crawl pics Wendy and Dan, looks like everyone had a great time and got some cool crawl mugs too..

littlegiles the crawl was so fun. I collect hugs and I have a huge collection now.
WaikikianMoeKele we once went to Mazatlan Mexico and the shower was big enough for 6!
Beachbumz we never look forward to hosing in the winter but that day in the shade felt like it. Hummmm I wonder whose waiting for that Moai bowl. Could it end up in Hawaii when I haven't been there forever?

Progress Report for the Wish List.

The crawl mugs are done and that leaves the WISH LIST yippee. Yesterday was a good day. I glazed from morning until 9 PM. I was glazing while we watched the presidential debate.


Since I sold the crawl mugs I had some cash to burn. Dan took me to Alpha Fired Arts and I had fun buying glaze. Most were to replace empties but 4 were brand new.


19tikichef62 and I discussed the color for Bob's face. In the end to have it look like the same species as the shrunken head I kept the traditional white face. After this fires I'll have a lot of tattoos to paint on Bob and the woman.


I made 4 necklaces. I'll make sure the holes have no glaze in them before firing.

Two puffers.

Two turtles. These are from the sculpts I did for Roge's lamps.


I worked on Professor G's War God in white with blue specks. First the three coats of white.

I'm not sure if this is his vision so I'm asking is this it or...

I can paint over the spots or I can add them to the teeth or...

Professor G I await your instructions.

Steve Soto's purple Bob bowl all ready to fire.


dartharnie always gives me fun challenges. Wolf Man Bob is the first of four I'm making for his wishes to be fulfilled. Last time it was Frankenstein.

All in under-glazes so that it wouldn't run. Three layers each color.

Close up.

While he dried I did my four new glaze tests.

Then he was coated with 2 layers of clear.


This morning we have chores but this afternoon I'll be back to glazing more. I need to fill the kiln then start to work clay on prior orders for a bisque load. I go back and forth working on these projects.

Does any one else want to order a Ren Clark Severed Head Tribute Mug? I'll be making these this winter. $125 plus shipping. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy, if I may quote the American poet William Joel: Don't go changin'. It looks fantastic, with glaring blue eyes and gnashing big pearly teeth, but then you always end up with fantastic. The pendants and the Wolfman look great, too.

Granular Rutile in your glaze. For the blue spots. Just a thought. Don't know if you've ever tried it before, or if it'll even work. I know it works in stoneware glazes....my pottery knowledge is limited.

Hi Professor G, after reading your note I clear glazed your War God and its drying, see photos.
Hale Tiki I've never heard of this product. I'll research it, thank you. These painted on spots will not move so I'll have no problems like when I used the lead chunks. Also the color will darken but will remain blue.

Progress Report on the Wish List:

First off the ZipLock baggies do not leak air so the tikis waiting to be customized have not dried out at all. So now I can pour ahead when I need too.


This time I did four layers of black glaze to see if I can prevent it from popping off. I also wet the bisqued bowl to start capillary action to see if that helped.

Here it is drying with Professor G's War God.



The bowl made it into this load but the War God will have to wait until the next one. I started the kiln firing this load about 30 minutes ago.
Top layer.

Bottom layer.


For the Sacramento Crawl mugs I did three tests. This is the third that I never even got around to glazing because I decided on the Caribbean Blue and carving the sides as the final choice.

These colors darken as they fire with a clear coat.




When making glaze tests to save I do the bottom with 3 layers, center with 2 and the top with one. Then I do 2 layers of clear along the left side. This tells me what my final product will look like.


He is ebtikis Tiki Central Tapa Bob. First I used the darkest of the three colors.


I let it dry overnight and then I rubbed it off the high spots but not perfectly because it is messy tapa.



Next I used the two lighter colors and painted here and there.




When these are dry by tonight I'll paint it all with 2 layers of clear.

It's fun to pick out the next wish to work on, step by step they will all be finsihed one day. Cheers, Wendy

The Wolfman is wonderful. I am very excited. The button down shirt is such a cool touch. thank you!

I've been away for a couple of days and have to agree with so many, "I love the Wendy and Dan Show". When's the first web cast?

Thank you all for rewarding me with your comments and visits. I have one of those big grins on my face right now.

We had a visit from a tiki friend and his lovely wife yesterday. When they are back home I'll let you know who. I'm also still waiting for the last day crawl photos to come back. VampiressRN you rocked that event.

zerostreet I think we should both paint him. I have velvet stretched and ready to go.
Hale Tiki and hang10tiki it was fun trying to figure out the tapa. We'll have to wait until its fired to see if it still meets ebtikis wishes.
VampiressRN I love it when you Te He He! I still have your flamingo Bob on the Wish List.

dartharnie I love doing your classic movie characters. I think the show is what you all choose to have me do. You are all creative! Thank you for liking the Dan and Wendy show and suggesting we go webcam. We almost made it. Years ago a fellow came and recorded one of us then he flew to Hawaii and interviewed Gecko. I lost his name and phone number and never heard from him again. Maybe its out on the web someplace but we've never seen it!







He even brought tracks for making a smooth entrance into the tiki jungle room.

Does anyone recognize him? Te He He


With company coming I choose to work on easier wishes. These are for ebtiki.
First is Hot Bob. I don't know how mixing these two glazes will turn out but it should be fun to see.


Next was Sheet Metal Bob. I used a metal glaze.

I did an extra layer on the back over the word TIKI so that it would show up better.

I also did a small ring coconut Bob. Now all three are drying.


When the kiln opens tomorrow my goal is to be loading it up with the next load to fire.

Thank you for your visits they mean a lot to me, Wendy

Wendy, I've been out of the loop for a couple of days working on a deadline project but it's done now. I see you and Dan have been busy. All great stuff, the Wolfman is looking especially cool.

OMG Wendy that Wolfman Bob is soooooo Cool! I ran into a customer here at the shop yesterday that had a tattoo like him on his arm along with the Sea Creature and told him he had to check out your thread here on TC.. My Bowl looks amazing Wendy, I hope that the 4 layers work on the damp bisque for you, I usually apply my glaze while damp most of the time and never had any problems with peeling.. ebtiki's Tapa bob is going to come out great, you really nailed the tapa on that one.. Can't wait for Christmas morning tomorrow!
