Hi Wendy, Your carvings look absolutely amazing! Seeing your interpretation of the Maori reference photo is the most exciting part of witnessing this process unfold and is way more cooler than an exact match of the photo. Regarding the size of the Maori mug, to be honest, I have become quite fond of the huge Maori mug and would proudly display it in all its hugeness .

Tyber Tiki it is fun to have made the largest mug out there. A lamp is still an option but there are many lamps this size. I'm glad you are happy so far.

hang10tiki the Maori and I thank you. I'm loving the countdown crawl photos. I wonder why?

SandraFremgen I would enjoy seeing your step by steps. You've done a super sweet painting for the swap. I've been paired with CY twice maybe that will happen with us.

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

The Tyber Tiki's tale of the HUGE Maori mug/lamp continues.
One step at a time. There sure are a lot of places to carve!



















I hope this is acceptable but my guarantee is that if I don't fulfill the Wish then the person doesn't have to take it.

I'll have more done to post tomorrow.

Cheers, Wendy

Hi Wendy,

Your detailed work around the Maori's eyes is simply astonishing! Please know that I will eagerly accept this mug into my collection and am most grateful that you took on my wish list item. I just hope that I do not have to wrestle with Dan or Kingstiedye for this mug once completed .

LoriLovesTiki wish granted. At least for the front of the mug.

kingstiedye with comments like that I'm super happy I made a mold. It's going to be fun doing carving variations in the future.

Tyber Tiki I'm so happy you like the carving. Check it out today! I'll make sure that the men don't snag it.

hang10tiki thank you so much.

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

These posted notes just made my day special.

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

Tyber Tiki's Wished for tiki has its carving finished. I will be carving the entire outside of the mug too.
Here's how it looks today.


First I carved the cheeks and started carving all the side doodads.


Next the chest.


Then the tummy and arms.


Time to add the tongue to this small mouth.


There it is. Legs and feet finished.


Of course I'll do fine tuning once this is dry but for now I've finished the front.


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

Tyber Tiki's your Wish will disappear from my daily posts for awhile while I post progress on other projects that
I'll be working on.

I thank all the Wishers for your patience while I tackled the most labor intensive project of all. It will reappear once I've finished the outside of the mug.

Cheers, Wendy

Wow Wendy, I am totally blown away by your incredible carvings and how the Maori has shaped up...the details are amazing and far exceeds anything I could have ever imagined. I'm looking forward to following the other wish list items progress.

Thanks!

hang10tiki I liked that.

kingstiedye you are so cute. Let's start today by showing the start up for your first of two mugs for this Wish List #5.

Tyber Tiki there is nothing better than fulfilling a Wish and yours was a BIG one! Thank you, I'm so happy.

swizzle but every hour was enjoyable. You and I have the love of clay and that is joyful all the time.


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

I will be carving on the backside of Tyber Tiki's HUGE Maori in the future but I'm taking a break and working on

kingstiedye aka Bullet two ordered Wishes and here's the first steps. He calls this the DEATH TIKI

He loves this character but he wants him to have a complete body.


This tiki has an arm set that is very similar. With a tweak of his hand shape and


a well rounded bottom kingstiedye designed a very doable new mug.


Dan got to enjoy his clean room for awhile but


now it's time to haul in the supplies.


I cast this mug as a base. It is one of three new fogcutter shapes I have available. I carved and molded them. One day I'll share how we did three molds at the same time.


I started with the backside.


Each piece is painted with slip before attaching. This helps to eliminate air bubbles that explode in the kiln.


I finished the rear end and then I


pinched in the waist to match the photo.


That's it for today.

LoriLovesTiki I'm glad you weren't in Boston!

Cheers, Wendy

Wow! I missed a few days and missed the grand reveal of the MASSIVE MAORI MUG MANIA! I didn't realize it was so big until Wendy sent over this selfie...






Wendy, your carving details are extraordinary, as always. Thanks for sharing.

Look forward to seeing the new mug progress- I bet it's going to be GOOD!
