Cool light.

Quote Sven
"But no one has combined them with the chunky lamps, so far!"

I don't know if I would say that.

Arrrrgh, Skip, I'm gonna eat my hat! How could I forget those beauties above, tiz tiz. What I meant of course was I had never seen resin Tikis combined with a classic mid-century "big chunk" resin lamp....





Wendy, is this a one-off? You are not gonna sell that, I'd take it. Or are they making more of them?
Couldn't afford one right now anyway, but I'd be in line to get one for sure.

Hi Mikeytiki, thanks for your post good to hear from you again.

MDM, you are such a doll. It's going to go where ever we can look at it the most.

Swizzle, that would be so cool to have one of these in your collection in Australia, wow. How's your mug coming along. I'll check your thread later.

Vamp, I'd take any connection to Sven and seeing my mug in his home was so much fun. It wasn't part of his show just in it's presence. I'm so happy you like the lamp. I'm in love with it.

Hang10tiki, another carving op!

tikiskip, we love the photos. Roger wanted to know when those were made. Any idea?

Hi Sven, I found the links to your TV show, it was great and left us begging for more.

I'm so glad you like the lamp and would want one in your standout collection. This first one is my special order and being given to us for my work on the sculpts. After this one I become a customer like everyone else.

Rogers goal is to post the photos of my lamp when it is finished on ETSY on December 1, 2011. There will be an order form where you may customize how you would want one done. I have no problem with someone wanting one exactly how I wanted mine. However you can all ask for variations in color choices or which of the two tikis you want on the lamp or both. He's coming up with other styles with more panels. It's so much fun that you may even order it to match a particular room perhaps all purple.

Look at all the resin chunk colors to choose from. Roger is the man who started the resin chunk lamp craze. It doesn't get any closer to the past or an authentic chunk lamp. Let go with your imagination and have your dream lamp customized for you.


I choose the center panel for my lamp.










On December 1st check out.

Roger thanks you for looking and I thank you too, Wendy

I'm on pins and needles waiting for more resin-tiki-chunk lamp photos. Roger has been working this weekend so it won't be long.

Meanwhile I've gotten back on track with my own project The Missionary's Downfall bowls.

Here is where one of the women who caused the downfall will sit. Glaze colors on the bowl will determine which woman looks best with which bowl.


Since I had the cracking problem I needed to carve out the bottom of the alter and to make it a holder for a new bowl.


So I drew the outline for the rocks and then spent a day carving them.





I put an arrow so that it's easy to fit the new bowl into the holder.


Top shelf in the kiln.


Bottom shelf in the kiln.


Tomorrow I'll be able to open the kiln and see if any of these survived. One air bubble and boom! Since these were all hand built that is a danger. So with fingers crossed I say farewell for now, Wendy

Nice work Wendy!!!
Tell Roger I love the chunk lights old and new.
Did he make the ribon and spaghetti type lights as well?
On the resin type lights I showed above those were made by me in 2009.
Here's the quote from that thread.
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=18485&forum=18&start=255

"Got the inspiration for one light from
Eli Hedleys Lexan wall at Kelbo's,
And Monkeyman here on TC.
I wanted to put my spin on it.
Going to start working wiht resin more"

Can't wait to see the end result.
Wish I had all those chunks to work with!

Tikiskip here's the link to Roger's business. He sells the chunks by the pound.
http://www.goldenwestmfg.com I just tried to find the chunks there and I couldn't. It's possilbe that now that he's making the lamps again he's stopped selling the chunks. I'll have to ask him. He makes the chunks himself.

I have looked at your thread and admired your lamps in the past. They are beautiful and look so vintage that we were fooled. I'm very happy to have your link on my thread so I may check in on your work often.

Beachbumz Happy Holidays to you as well. The beautiful bowl is hidden for Christmas but its been hard not to give it to Dan early.

hang10tiki, that's so cool that you found a bank. I made a Ren Clark Head in exchange for wooden tiki. The fellow needed money so he sold it. The head made it to Japan and back and I found it in a case in an antique store in Orange. They called the owner in Japan and he sold it to me for half price because I was the artist. It's back in Dan's collection since I hadn't made one in this size for him! We love antique stores and tiki hunts. I can't get your last carving out of my mind. Burning the mouth black looked so good.


Before I started on Tiki Central I would post on claytikis.com. It shows step by steps for these heads and other clay projects before I started in ceramics.


umeone you are the party. I love all your islands and tiny tikis. I'm looking forward to the mini mystery bowl.

I have an early appointment but sometime today I'll open the kiln. My fingers are crossed because MDM Dan ate the pizza!

Cheers Friends, Wendy

Wendy, I can't believe how you got the Ren Clark mug back after selling it, it's a great story. Can't wait to see your latest projects done. I love the hula girls. Best of luck with everything.

Thanks so much hiltiki. It was one of those fun moments. I knew ahead of time that the head was somewhere in southern California because there was a thread started by some people who said they had heart attacks seeing it in the glass case and thinking it was a vintage head. So while on vacation we started a search and there it was. The best part was being able to talk to the man in Japan.


Tikiskip, I wrote to Roger and here is his reply. Wendy

Wendy, very good lamps, I liked him using the many natural looking island materials. He has done an excellent job designing and putting them together.


Overall etsy site for my lamps & rocks………Roge

For his lamps.

Resin Rocks…….For Sale.

I opened the kiln and took out my Missionary's Downfall bowls.

Next step was to hose them off really well to remove the dust and take them into the house to dry.

I checked them over and found one crack where I thought I might get one because the clay was so very thick in this area. It happened to this bowl.

Here's the crack under the forehead. Good luck that it's not is a visible place.

I have a lot of different ways to fix this. I will drill it out into good clay and go from there.

All in all I'm very happy with the outcome. I can't wait to glaze these and pair them with their naughty hula women. Wendy

What a wonderful display of talent variety. Chunk lamps....I remember a huge blue and purple chunk type lamp my aunt had in Hermosa Beach. Spent hours gazing at it.

You guys are rocking so much Tiki!

Good on you!
