Love it Wendy, that texture is great. It reminds me a lot of the ocean worn lava rock I used to find on beaches growing up. Your works in progress are always fun to see.

Wow I have to do surfaces more often!

umeone, zerostreet, hiltiki and tigertail thank you for keeping an eye on my work it means a lot.

Swizzle I can't wait to see you use the sandpaper. Now that you are a ceramicist I can learn from you too. I've only got a years head start.

Mikeytiki it was the photo hiding the lips but it did cause me to take a second look and add a chip there.

MDM we are due to deliver these to Grass Valley tomorrow. We'll go to the antique shops and tiki hunt too. We have found some good ones there in the past. I don't know how fast he'll hop on these but I hope it is soon. I'll post photos of our trip and his shop.

Gene S Morgan Queen Kamehameha grabbed the title of Queen first darn it!

Thank you all for the compliments and for cheering me on. This journey wouldn't be fun without you.

I chipped it up today and I'm waiting to hear back if it's enough damage or not.
(: Wendy



I heard back. I'm all done and ready to take them on the road. Cheers, Wendy

MDM, you make me blush, thank you, Wendy

Gosh I hope I can convey how excited I am after our trip to Grass Valley. Not just because the next step has been made towards making the chunk style tiki lamps but because of who I'm making them with. Roger Bodine began making these lamps in the early 1960's. He was the first to make them with resin rather than glass so they didn't weigh so much. But its what he's made since that time that gives me such excitement. It is his company that made the giant lens for the HUBBLE spacecraft telescope. No kidding! I am so honored to be joining him in his first endeavor into the tiki world. It's always fun to go back to something you enjoyed when young and to do it again. To make that journey with him is super. The sculpts are done so now with them in his hands I get to sit back and watch.He's got the molds underway and he'll send me photos in a couple of weeks to update the progress.



These are some of the chunks that his company makes and sells. You could make your own lamp.




This is Roger Bodine and some of his creations.







My personal lamp will have the panels on the left. The tikis will be in the light and dark reds in the center of the panels. He can make these any color or in any way someone desires.

My lamp will be the first one and I'll post photos as soon as it's done.

Here's his Etsy and web pages.

Thanks for the visit, Wendy

Those are awesome, I've never seen anything like that, which is why I gave you that "dumbfounded" look when you were describing them to me - really cool, can't wait to see the tiki touch with the Moai incorporated!

Very cool Wendy, looks like you had a great trip. Keep us posted on the progress. How far from you is Grass Valley (and what kind of "grass" grows there? )

Super Cool Wendy! I will be avidly watching for more. What a opportunity! It's kinda funny I never really had much appreciation for chunk lamps until I saw and read about them here on TC. I love all the colors of resin chunks in the photo. So as I understand it he is going to make a mold of your tiki sculptures and then cast resin versions of them? I can't wait to see those lit up!

Wow Wendy! I am coming late to this party, just saw the operation pics and all: I am so glad you are better!

There is nothing more healing than the energy one gets from a new creative project, and boy have you got one with the lamp! What chunky resin paradise! Those boxes full of the chunks...oooooh! I am so addicted to these lamps. And I wanna know more about their past:

Did he have any catalogues for the lamps back then? How did he distribute them, does he have any old photos of his lamps in situ?

Great find, and great work reviving an extinct art form!

Hi Friends, I'll do my best to answer each one of you right NOW!

The Blue Kahuna - I'm glad to have shown you something new. So many tiki collectors also have these lights. I'm thrilled to add my art to a new tiki version.

hang10tiki - thank you - I've been watching your gallery thread, your new Tiki Bob is darling.

Umeone - we need to see if one of our lamps was made by him. I sure am enjoying your sometimes shocking craft thread, you go girl.

MadDogMike - we are 1 1/2 hours away. He is in the mountains so eventually he'll have snow.

Hi Sven - its been a long hard summer. I've had two broken bones and my second surgery was only 2 weeks ago. I never stopped the flow of art, it kept me happy in spite of the pain.

Roge (he likes that better than Roger - it rhymes with Dodge) has left on a trip. When he is back I'll ask him all your questions. I would like a copy of him sitting on the Hubble lens that they had in the Sacramento Bee.

Sven here's a message from Dan. He said he saw a movie this week filmed in 1990. The name of the movie was The Mistress. It listed you as the Director of Photography. He said that made the movie so much more fun.


Here I'm sharing part of an email he sent to me;

My first exposure to Tiki was Don The Beachcombers at WAIKIKI in 1957 when I was in the Navy.

I had 2 Mai Tai’s, a couple of other drinks and when I walked out of their bar late at night, I walked right into a palm tree and fell over. My buddies got me back to the base at Pearl.

Along with this story he sent me photos of what they accomplished before he left.







Yes - he not only makes his resin pieces he makes the black goo and liquid resin used to build the lamp.
