dartharnie no presents yet but soon he'll have some and I'll share photos then.

Dan, Bob and I thank you for the compliments and anniversary wishes. We smiled so biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig as we read them all. We are so lucky to have you with us.

We drove 30 minutes to the Sacramento River which like rivers in New Orleans has levies on each side. Without them Sacramento would be underwater each winter.

We had a relaxing meal and enjoyed each others company and conversation. Then it was home to tiki work. We will celebrate this whole summer because 35 is such a large number of years. That's why we are going to three tiki events. One down two to go.


I admit it I'm obsessed with bird vs cat photos. I'm working in the garage on tikis and there is a one sided battle going on. When Sherry's had enough she comes and watches me work.

Dive Bomber.

Gottcha by the tail.




Progress Report

I save a lot of clay for using with mold making. Yesterday it dawned on me that I could cut off the top of the mugs

slice it up

and it was ready to use to stop the leaks from the bad mold. Easier than making snakes.

12 drying and 2 to clean up today. I rotate them, head down, head up so that the whole mug dries out at the same rate. Eventually I lay them on their sides. This prevents cracking.


It sprinkled in Elk Grove and so we had to put the molds under the patio roof to dry. They did and we poured #13 and #14 last night.


Years ago Psycho Tiki D ordered a Missionary's Downfall bowl and woman. I had sent the sculpt to Gecko and he made a mold. I tried to mold it and had a catastrophe. I destroyed the bowl and no matter what I did I couldn't get the mold to work. So I built one by hand. When I glazed it the bowl cracked. I gave up for awhile. Then I saw recently that Gecko was making my bowl and woman and so I paid him to make two bowls in green-ware and to ship them to me from Hawaii.

Yesterday I started to work on them. First I took off all the mold lines.


Then I carved in the bamboo to make it deeper. See the one on the right.


When I did the original sculpt I left out an I in the word Missionary's. So I had them smear out the first half of the word so I could make it right.


I carved it back into the top.


I need to finish that off and they'll be ready to bisque fire and his bowl will have a good start.



Then it was time to fire those Bob's. These went in yesterday and will come out tomorrow. It seems I'm always fine tuning the heads.


Thank you for the fun notes and visits. We appreciate you, Wendy

Happy Anniversary! 35 years is a long time. My parents just celebrated #49!

I can't wait to see how the "non white faced" Bobs look after firing. I think Clam it up is my favorite of this group but I reserve the right to change my mind.

I didn't know that you could scrap off the glaze from parts to change the color!!! Guess that's my one bit of learning for today. Thanks for that bit of information, you never know when it will come in handy.

HAPPY 35th!!!! Here is to another happy 35 years! You guys always seem so happy and great for each other. Keep each other laughing!


On another note - Those crazy birds! They think they are soo much better than us land fixed creatures... I think my cats would team up and eat those things, but they are indoor cats.

Looks like some good progress on those crawl mugs. And it looks like you had a good anniversary too! Emily and I are celebrating 12 years together in July, but we haven't been married that long.

Happy Anniversary! 35 years of tiki-riffic fun!

Can't wait to see how the colors fire on the current Bobs.

Wendy & Dan, (belated) Happy Anniversary!

Sorry I missed wishing you guys all the best yesterday, looks like you had a fun day. The Bobs are looking amazing (no surprise there), excited to see them come out of the kiln- still loving Ukulele Bob, and continually impressed with the amount of creativity and work volume you keep up- wow!

I glazed a bunch of pieces today, though now that I look at your post, it was only a tiny percentage of part of your day's craftsmanship. Thanks for inspiring all of us to push on and create. (I suppose I should open that up to everyone else here on TC working in the "tiki arts," too).

hang10tiki every day with Dan is fun

LoriLovesTiki wow 49 is terrific. It was fun to do Bob without white faces for a change. I just scrape off the glaze and paint on a new one because if the glaze is too thick it may run. Or layered it may come out a different color. I'm glad you liked Clam up Bob. He's a bit crazy.

lunavideogames lets see in 35 years I'd be 97. I had an aunt make it to 97 so maybe. Dan's 8 months younger so he should make it too.

12 together is really good too. Yesterday the two birds plus a hummingbird were swooping Sherry. I never knew that hummingbirds would do that. However it never came closer than 10 feet. It stayed and did this for about 7 minutes. Sometimes I have to stop working tikis to watch.

Chippy I just love Tiki Peeps and law enforcement.

tigertail777 coming right up.

TikiAno its fun for me to see when you glaze. Also MadDogMike just did a wonderful glaze experiment.

hang10tiki it was fun for Dan to see you hook up with his best friend. Now you can be part of The Most Interesting Man In The World club. Anyone else run into Dan's friend?


Progress Report - The kiln is open and Dan got his two Anniversary presents from what came out.

We opened the kiln.


Rum Barrel Bob and Bob Woody




Clam Up Bob and Underwater Bob




Lightning Bob and Mrs. Tiki Bob




Peanut PNG Bob and Ukulele bob




Party time with the groups together





dartharnie here are the photos you requested.
We exchanged Anniversary gifts in the jungle room. I always get a hand made card and coupons. My favorite coupon was one that said he would watch a TV show that he hates with me. Here comes Big Brother!


Dan majored in Spanish in college with a minor in Italian. He is just finishing up Rosetta Stone Spanish as a review and now he'll do Italian which will mostly be new. I've never been to Europe and I'd like to go to Spain and Italy. I'll have my own interpreter if we ever make it there. So far I haven't been able to give up tiki events to travel. We haven't been in a plane in 8 years.


I gave Dan Peanut PNG Bob and Rum Barrel Bob as gifts.


I also found ceramic cork stoppers on eBay that completed his cork display. He even has extras now. These are ceramic but they have started reproducing the whole set in plastic.




So that's the show for today. I hope some of you will run into the The Most Interesting Man in the World and post your photos her like hang10tiki did today.

Thank you all for the Anniversary wishes. Lots of hugs for my Tiki friends, Wendy

The latest batch all looks great Wendy. I wasn't expecting those orange shells on the blue Bob but they really look good there

They're all stunning, Wendy.

Am I the only one who thinks Mrs. Tiki Bob takes a bit after Barbara Billingsley (television's June Cleaver)?
