Funny about the post seeing the Hawaiian Tiki Spoon & Fork on the set of "Anger Management", we used to watch "Two and a Half Men" when Charlie was on it, and always laughed at the fact that there was at least one Tiki present and visible in the Bar shots when they hung out at their local bar. Always wondered who's Tiki it was and who on set got them into the decor?

TikiHula thank you and may your weekend be truly spectacular.

hang10tiki Dan was asked if we were going to have a party and use the mugs. Dan hovered over them like a parent protecting his young. He shook his head no and said they would just be looked at and admired. hang10 you are brave with your mugs.

cy thank you, it's so much fun to picture you in the woods, on Frog Island and in your home. That was such a fun visit.

Dr.TikiMojo it was extra fun for us because we had never seen this show before and I'd bought a set on our trip to Monterey and again from Tacky Tiki at our crawl. I have three sets on the dining room wall. So tasteful.

===============================================================

I love reading comments, thank you all for posting here.

===============================================================

Last year when I did the super big mug for the Sacramento Crawl I had visions of super carving one. I had Dan drag out the huge mold and I poured one. Here's all the fun carving I did on this mug. Of course Dan has claimed it. I will have another Wish List before the year is over. Right now I need to do some pieces so I can fire my glaze test strips and then do the dozen new glazes. Then I'll be ready to take on your challenges.

Here it is, the Coral Reef Tiki


First step was to clean off all the mold lines and make the mug look smooth all over.


Then I started at the base and carved in all these lines.


I got out some clay cutters to use as a guide on


the tiki's rear end.


Using the guide lines I deepened the circles.


It is easier to also work with the mug upside down.


Here are the rest of the steps.














All done and ready to slowly dry.












It's fun to just play with clay. You all should try it. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki you are Super awesome! Thank you for checking in so often. You are Tiki Ano especially keep me motivated to post.

======================================

We went on a tiki road trip. We stayed the night in Pleasanton near San Jose. We found some fun tiki things that I'll be sharing soon.

Meanwhile we have started to pour some Tiki Bob's that I use as bases for making the Wish List mug. I just cover up Bob's face and go from there. I bet I make a few for Dan along the way. I'm not quite ready to do the Wish List because I'm still working on the Zombie Torch mugs.

Here's what our days are looking like right now.

We went to Alpha Fired Arts for slip. I was all out.


We have them fill our jugs half full because they make their slip thick.


I like to assembly line my work so I took off all the lids and


added the right amount of water. I tested first with one.


Then using a potato masher I masked in the water.


Then I finished them up with hand, my hand mixer. That way I can check to make sure the mix is just right.


My Tiki Bob molds were made by us from my own clay sculptures. They are very leaky after many casts. So every time I do two things. The first is to dam up the cracks with clay.


Every crack aka seams between pieces.


Then we pour in some slip and tip the mold to run the slip where the pieces join. This too will seal it.


Dan shakes it up before pouring.


I pound the side with a rubber mallet when he fills the mold.


Then they sit for two hours.


Dan does the clean up for me. He works for tikis.


The excess slip is poured out by Dan while I watch the insides with a flashlight. I make sure that none hangs up inside the mug.
Sometimes I need to use a stick to urge it out.


They they sit upside down overnight.


The next day we open the molds and remove the Tiki Bob's.


The molds are put outside with fans on them to dry so that by the afternoon we can pour again.


I clean all the mold lines off the mugs and put them in Heafty bags to keep them from drying out.


It all starts over again, every day. This photo was taken by Tiki Hula.


Cheers, Wendy

Going back to your last mug,
I wish I could coax that much detail out of my carvings.
Nice job.

Will carve I think you have. I just looked at all 55 pages of your carvings and what wonderful work I viewed. The war club on page 45 and the tiki on page 53 are stand outs.

================
You can meet Will carve on page 41 of his thread. If you start looking at his work it's hard to stop!
================


hang10tiki you are so right. He's a happy man because he lives in his tiki dream world. How about you? What up in the Honu Hideaway that you could share here? I hope we will be able to visit you this winter.

================

Saturday Dan and I took off for a trip to Pleasanton, California for their huge antique sale down mainstreet.

On the crowded freeway we road along side this truck for 2 minutes before it exited. I thought it was a good omen.


We stopped at an estate sale and the front yard was full of these beautiful flowers. There must be tikis in our future.


There is one antique mall in this town and we had never been there before. The owner of this booth we had met in the past at this same antique fair but for some reason we didn't know about her booth at the mall.

Sorry I forgot not to turn my camera for these shots.


She had the most tikis stuff ever seen in an antique store.


It's a lot of fun to look at all the items but in the


end we didn't find anything here for Dan's collection.


Maybe next time. This will always be worth the stop.



At another booth we spotted this huge print or painting. It's covered with glass so I couldn't tell. The owner made me an offer I couldn't refuse. $100. The frame is so heavy that it took


Here's a close look. I want it to be next to our TV so that we'll think we are in Hawaii.



The next morning we were up by 5:45 am to have breakfast and get to the sale ASAP.


The lady who owns the antique booth with all the tikis was at the sale. She had this Sneaky tiki. Looking at it I told her I thought someone had cut a bamboo light in half and mounted it on this plaque. She said I must be right because she has the other half at home. Nope we didn't get it.


Here's what we did bring home. Front and


back.


The domino effect took place but everything has it's new place now and we are happy. I should have turned off the TV for this photo, what a mess.

Thank you for sharing it all with us.

LoriLovesTiki everyone who posts or visits here is what makes it all fun. Without you all I'd retire from ceramics and just chase Dan around the house. That could be fun too! You are very welcome, thank you too.

hang10tiki I'm jealous that you live in the most fun city of the world.

VampiressRN it doesn't show but the frame is a double layer of bamboo and super heavy. I wish I knew how old it was. The original price tag was on the back, $225. It has a bar code so Dan says it has to be later than the 70's or the tag came later. I'll never know. No artist name that I can see above the frame. I just love that it has the same colors as the Tahitian plaque next to it.

=====================================================

Guess what. Tomorrow I am having a surgery to fix a chronic pain problem. I have no idea when I'll feel up to posting. I hope it's really soon but I do know I'll be down all day tomorrow.
=====================================================

So while I'm down let's have another contest for one of my Puffer Fish necklaces.

I recently thought it would be fun to take some Halloween photos to post here.

Example:


The contest question is, how many different photos of Dan did I take before he said, "that should be enough".

One guess per person, first correct guess wins. The contest will run until I'm well enough to post the winners name.

One glitch, I won't post the photos of Dan until Halloween day. If you want to do some photoshop Halloween photos of Dan here while I'm out I'd love that.

Good Luck everyone. Wendy
