Tiki Hula with comments like that you'll always be on my good side and welcome back to play with clay.

hang10tiki you make Dan feel very special. That's a great tiki although it looks a bit crazy in the last photo.

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

Dan's Frankoma bowl firmed up some so that I could start to work on it again.

First I lined up all the Frankoma tikis to be cleaned.


I put them in a plastic tub to keep them from drying out.


The next day:

Now I have all the parts ready for the bowl.


The volcano had collapsed a bit and was too big. Observing that I needed to push out some air from inside the volcano


I helped Dan to side two choppers underneath the bowl and to lift it up.


Once this was done I was able to squeeze in the sides before we put the bowl back down on the turnstile.


Now the volcano is taller and the right size all around.


Now we put the tikis around the bowl to get them into place.


Looks pretty good.


I can get an idea of what the bowl will look like finished and 6 tikis was just right.


I put a little ball of clay centered on each tiki so that I'll know where to put it after I take it away for the next step.


I cut off part of the tikis butt until it would get up close to the bowl.


I added some very soft and sticky clay back to that same area.


I pressed the tiki in place while holding the bowl from caving in.


I did this with all 6 tikis and also cleaned up excess clay where the tiki was joined to the bowl.


When I finished Dan came for a final inspection.


Top view still pretty good placement.


Side view.


Next day:

These tikis will pop right off if the drying process isn't slow enough. So the whole bowl has been in plastic over night and this morning it was taken out for a couple of hours. Then back in again. I also needed the inside of the volcano to dry so with help from Dan it was placed on these two turnstiles so that the opening is not covered.


I will dry this bowl over the next week or two. I will watch for cracks and repair them as they show up.

So that's it for now. Have a great night, Wendy

Wow, all the new Bobs are fantastic, the divot one might be my favorite? Actually it might NOT be my favorite, since all the other ones are equally beautiful. The new bowl looks great- should be called the FrankomaWOW bowl!

Jon, funny stuff.

As promised, Wendy, it's time to post our new arrival. Unfortunately I missed all the Halloween posts since I was preoccupied with this: Baby Ari arrived on 10/31/14, - whose labor, incidentally, made me miss the Bali Hai's 60th Anniversary Party. I'll forever hold this over his head, but I'd say missing this once in a lifetime party in exchange for another once in a lifetime opportunity was well worth it. That being said, it's been fun seeing all the photos from a great night with the San Diego Ohana.

On the bright side, my wife has a sudden interest in my ceramic projects, and has requested a few pieces for the nursery. "Ari" means "lion" in Hebrew (my wife is Israeli), but it's also good for a future TC name: Tiki Ari. He's also a good size right now to use as a swizzle stick:



Wendy, thanks for all the love over on Facebook!

hang10tiki it would look even better with your head added! Thank you for keeping an eye on my work.

hang10tiki I appreciate these creations so much.

TikiAno that may be the last post for a while with so much happening at your home. So if I miss all your wonderful comments I'll just stop back here to read them again. That's an adorable photo of Tiki Ari. His eyes are open and he's looking right at you when you took the photo. It doesn't get better than that. Congratulations. We sent you a "fun" box today. I wish I'd had a Lion but alas none were to be found.

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

We went back to exploring zoo's. This one is Mickey Grove Zoo in Lodi.





After we walked through the zoo we went to the Japanese garden. It was a beautiful day.











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

This will be a Flame Bob. I've done two others and each time I carve the flames differently and glaze them differently. I this one may have more yellow and blue glaze rather than red. He's a quick mess that I'll fine tune after he dries.











It's fun to spend time outdoors before the cold and windy weather hits. We are doing our best to have that fun.
I think though that Tiki Ano is having the very best time.

Cheers, Wendy

Thanks, guys, for the well wishes! Tiki Ari has so far made me miss two tiki events (the Bali Hai's 60th Anniversary & the San Diego Ohana monthly meet-up (also at the Bali Hai, tonight on the first Monday of every month), but I suppose I'll get over it. It's been fun and look forward to what the future holds, which hopefully allows me some time to play with clay again!

I'll be checking in. Wendy, love all the new pieces!

Jon, "Baby Hai" is an inspired line.

Tiki Ano another photo of Tiki Ari when you have time. We miss your ceramic work but it will be waiting for you. I started working clay at 6 months old so get prepared to start him playing with some. Just don't let him eat it!

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

I had another Tiki Bob half filled with sticky muck. To get it out I had to trun him upside down and dig it out through the bottom of the mug.


While he was in this position I decided to do a Handstand Bob. I added Dan's rear end and a spine.


I cut some squares and added sticky clay.


Then I pressed them into place and


carved in some fingers.


Next I added arms and then


I fined tuned the individual verteraes shape.


I cleaned them up with some water on a brush.


I turned the mug over so I could add clay to the hands.


Hopefully I didn't introduce any air bubbles that will blow his hands off when firing in the kiln.


Rings were


added


all the way around.



Here's a part of the mug that didn't work out. I cut some more pieces


and cut them into the shape of feet.


I added the ball and heel to each foot.


Once attached it was decided that no one would want a mug that could kick you in the eye.


I took them off and made a couple of pendants.


Playing with clay sure is fun. Wendy

hang10tiki, you men, Dan liked the idea butt I'm not going to do that!

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

Here are the next steps on Dan's Frankoma bowl.

Dan requested that the outside of the bowl be textured.


This was the easiest to do since the bowl is firming up.


The bowl is large and heavy. I needed to turn it over to do the bottom of the bowl. I found a glass vase to use as a support.


I flipped it over with a wash cloth to soften the edge pressing into the volcano.


Now it was easy to finish off the texture carving.


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

I spent the last several days working on three fogcutter mugs. We will mold these to use as a base for new mugs. One will be used for the next Sacramento Crawl mug...the secret is out!



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

Check out the next Swap run by MadDogMike. I'm honored to have my idea selected. Find a Hawaiian shirt to use in your Swap Art. You can copy it in some way or destroy it to use in the art. This is going to be fun.

Cheers, Wendy

I love upside down Bob!

Wendy, thanks so very much. Ari received a wonderful gift box today from Wendy and Dan. Wow, is he lucky, Not only did he receive his first tiki but also a great batch of stuffed animals a bank, and so much love. Here are a few pictures (I'm not sure how, but Tiki Bob snuck in there)!

The wide shot:


Going in for a close up (looks like E.T. hiding in the closet in the movie):


Ari posing with his first Wendy Cevola piece (please don't take his expression as a critical one, he's only 6 days old). He was only attempting to match the tiki's expression....



Wendy and Dan, thanks so much again! Okay, back to tiki stuff.....
