These decanters are so awesome already . . . I'm sure my imagination isn't doing justice to the final result . . . can't wait to see!

Always enjoy the artists' work and the reveal!

Thanks Eric, it is good to be back. Artists are driven to do art, downtime is hard.

Here's the next step by steps on the Tiki Bob crawl decanter.
It dawned on me that a decanter had to have a lid. So I have decided to do a huge flame that will come out of the volcano. Each of these will be carved to fit the volcano of the decanter it is paired with. They will be glazed in flame colors and carved with more detail.





After I broke my arm he's been more than just my right hand. So I've added his initial to the bottom of each decanter.


Here he is blowing off the dust with an air compressor before the bisque fire.


Here are the decanters that we just fired and removed from the kiln this morning.


Once again I've taken over the kitchen nook for glazing.


Tonight I have another load in the kiln. I can fire 16 during the bisque fire because they can touch. I don't know how many will fit when they need to be apart.

Thanks for checking this out. Wendy and Dan

I LOVE SEEING SOMEONE ELSE DOING VELVETS!!

Velvet keeps trying to fade away, thanks for helping keep it alive.

Nice work. The decanters are sooo cooly unusual, I love 'em.

There is so much else here I wish I had the time to comment on... instead I'll just say: VERY VERY NICE WORK, YOU GUYS ROCK.

Mr. Robb Hamel thank you so much for commenting on my velvet painting and decanters. Velvet painting is so much harder than a regular painting. I admire your art so much. I am using your thread as a reference for helping me do this painting step by step. I'll post again soon.

This morning we finished washing the decanters and now they are filling up the kitchen counter and nook. Here are some photos. Cheers, Wendy

Hosed inside and out.


I always set up a TV while I glaze because three layers of each color takes a long time.


I'm starting to do the tests with all the ideas that Dan and I have come up with then we'll choose the best.

Beachbumz are you forgetting Dan? He's my baby! He's helped so much His initial goes before mine on the bottom of the decanter. I am starting them by doing glaze tests. I have the colors to use this time around but I need to see how many layers and what looks best on the volcano. So this week I'll be glazing those that had some glug glug problems or bubbles. When I have a perfect combination I'll start the final run of 50. The napkin we used as the model was all brown but I'm going to make the face white. I'm not sure if I'll leave the eyes and lips brown or make them black.

I'm also working on the black velvet for Oasis and here's what it looks like today.

Hi zerostreet. No we are not vending we go to Oasis to play. Dan shops and I go around and hug friends. Are you going to be there? Wendy

Hi MadDogMike, I had painters block for awhile but now I'm starting up again. I'm also glazing all the the decanters for the Sacramento Crawl so I'm painting every day.

It's all fun, Wendy

The seven test glazes are firing in the kiln right now. When these are out in a couple of days I'll be able to pick the best colors from them for the run of 50 for the crawl. This is the most fun part. Fingers crossed that they look good. I will still be adding cold paint to the face and words Tiki Bob after the final glazing.




Ahhh ZeroTiki I will definitely have a hug for you, Wendy

How are you glazing the bottoms? Are they on stilts? Can't wait to see them when they come out.

Hi Maui Tiki. I did glaze the bottoms and they are on stilts. The one you see the Bob on is a plaque for the wall. When I had a couple cave in I saved the fronts.

Hey Zero its hard but fun work and worth it all in the end. It's very hard waiting to open the kiln. You have a very endearing smile so I'll keep posting, Wendy
