Thank you all for the great notes.
VampiressRN I'm so glad everyone likes Wolf Man Bob.
Beachbumz your bowl has shipped. I love watching you work, thanks so much for watching us.
littlegiles, Mahalo Tiki, hang10tiki I love opening the kiln and seeing all the colors. Just a couple of days and it happens again.
dartharnie we will ship tomorrow!
anthonymaye its was terrific to meet you. See you again soon.
MadDogMike I am baffled as to why my glaze that should crack doesn't and the glaze that shouldn't does.

I took a flash photo of Wolf Man Bob.


I'm doing a couple of tests to find out if it's the clear glaze or the brand of black under-glaze that has begun to run when I do Bob faces. Oh No, I just realized that I didn't put them in the kiln when I fired last night. They are still sitting on the counter. Oh well!


To cover the runny eyes on the volcano Bob I've covered the face with four layers of glaze. While doing this I noticed some crazing on the woman so I've added clear glaze to her body and face to see if it will heal her.


Three Bob's. Pineapple, Smooth and Pac Man Key Bob's.

Back of Pac Man.


Drying outside before firing.


Top shelf of the kiln.

Bottom shelf.


The kiln started at 8 PM so it might not open until Thursday. It's still not done. I do slow ramps at 13 to 15 hours determined by the preheat. Last night it was 2 hours.

Cheers, Wendy

I confess that I go back and re-read comments. I just did that and found that I'd missed one from little lost tiki one of my very favorite artists. Kenny, hug hug hug back to you. Wendy

Wendy, who knows the secret life of glazes? But my crackle glaze turned out good. I opened the kiln a bit about 2 hours after firing finished, it was probably 1000-1200 in there still. Then I opened it completely after a couple more hours. The piece was very warm to touch, uncomfortable to hold for more than a couple of seconds (and I have pretty tough hands). I wiped it with a barely damp cloth and could hear the glaze pinging. Normally you hate to hear that sound but this time was different. Then I soaked it some ink and water for a while. It's got a nice spiderweb effect.

MDM very nice, love the skull. I'm afraid I'd have to have a whole load I wanted to crack. I'd love to have a small kiln one day.
hang10tiki thank you.
Hale Tiki MDM has done a great job of cracking us up and now he's cracking skulls.

Yesterday was another day of glazing. 3 layers each meant this is what I was able to do in 7 hours.

I had one more War God statue to do and I want to see if I can make another old one.


These are the little cups that Psycho Tiki D rescued and I've taken from clay to glaze. I started with 11 and 5 didn't make it this far.


When making these Frankoma Bowls the challenge is glazing behind the tikis. It works best to pour in the glaze.

I let it drain out and use a brush to reach what I can to smooth it.

This is a new glaze color in mottled green.


The last bowl I glazed will be orange inside and on the Bob faces. The bowl will be an off dark beige with orange spots. This is also a new glaze.



Opening the kiln with new glazes is super fun. I need to glaze enough for one more shelf. The load in the kiln now will open in the morning and then I'll get another going.

Soon I'll be back to the rest of the Wish List that is still in the clay stage. That means the Jaguar bowl, Scuba diver Bob, Christmas Santa Bob, Flamingo Bob...I'll have to go through the binder to see what else. Thank you all for keeping me so busy. I'm having a blast. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy,

Excited to see the "Jungle Gem" Bob- which glaze did you use? I fired a piece to Cone 6 with it (a bit too high) and didn't get as cool a look as I had hoped. The Wolfman is amazingly amazing.

Rescued? Do tell.

Also, I have an original Duncan mold for those, unused, that I'm about to run a bunch of tin silicone positives of, which will destroy the mold for ceramic use, but will produce a large number of positives to make new molds from.

I'm almost beginning to look forward to the new glazes as much as I am new wish list carves. You display so much creativity from beginning to end. When do you open the kiln again?

Hi Friends, I was so honored to be on the cool and current list this morning. I needed a cheer up. We are heading to a funeral this morning.

I will have photos way later today. We opened the kiln and overall I'm very excited by what I saw with the glazes.

TikiAno I only use o6 glazes, your 6 is 10 times hotter. The highest I've gone is 05.

hang10tiki we are living the dream. I wish Dan would stop asking for everything that comes out of the kiln.

Hale Tiki these were a rescue of fragile clay in a box in a garage sale. By the time PTD got 12 to us one was broken. As I tried to sand them a couple more broke then in the kiln 3 more perished.

dartharnie me too!

See you later, Wendy

The Bob bowl had two areas where the glaze popped off. This happens when the bisqed clay shrinks some more as it cools.

I re-glazed this bowl and it will fire again. Hopefully it will be fixed.





Wendy, this is my favorite glaze so far! I love all the new multicolored ones though....

Hi LoriLovesTiki, sometimes a bowl just won't co-operate. The last time I had a bowl where the glaze kept popping off if was a purple Bob. One day it slipped off the hood of my car and crashed on the ground. Once again I am working on another purple Bob bowl and for the second time glaze has popped off. I am cursed with purple Bob bowl failures.

I'm going to keep trying until this bowl cracks or crashes! I like this glaze too.

The kiln came open and I found hits and misses. This is the second miss for Professor G's spotted War God statue. Some day I may get this right.

Under-glaze is not supposed to move. I am now convinced that the clear glaze is to fault. I had some Bob mouths and eyes move too.



Sorry Professor G.

I almost forgot. Here's the first shelf when I opened the kiln

and the bottom shelf.


The next small problem I encountered is a couple of small glaze skips inside the War God bowl I've made for Psycho Tiki D. I'll sand clean and re-glaze these. This is a minor problem that is easy to take care of.



Oh shoot I just remembered another problem. 10tikichef62 super hard VolcanoMissionary'sDownfallShrunkenHeadBob didn't come out as hoped for after repairs. I've found out that the rocky glaze is eaten up by existing shiny glaze. So trying to cover the face didn't work out. I've gotten way too much glaze on this one. So 19 I'm going to just use cold paint to finish it up and you may decide if you still would like to own it. So I'll get to work on that part soon.



Ok some of the tikis did come out just fine. Here they are...
For ebTiki I did a Tiki Central Tapa Bob, a Sheet Metal Bob and a Small Ring Coconut Bob. No problems they all turned out just fine.




In those photos you can also see a test I did of the Sacramento Crawl mug in tapa.
Dan has grabbed it as his own.


Two flame Bob's one flat and one in 3D for Joanne.



These are the three whose faces I need to paint eyes and mouth on.
A smooth Bob, PacMan Bob for SM Bacon and Pineapple Tall Bob whose pineapple must be cold painted too.




Thanks for stopping by and for your votes. Cheers, Wendy
