amate I should have taken better notes. When you find out what works you need to write it down. With so many glaze choices it is easy to forget and to go through all the mistakes again.

KonaKaiBaby Cherry Banana Bob is thinking it over!


JenTiki Lemon Fresh Bob. $75 is on hold for you until your final decision after today's photos.


LoriLovesTikis you make me smile.


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


Last page and this page show all the Bob's and my first two fogcutter mugs that I have for sale.


Blue Tapa Fogcutter. All original carving. It took forever. $85 SOLD to Tyber Tiki






Brown Fogcutter Maori Style. $75







Bob Bottle in Brown. $75





Spiral Bob. $75 SOLD Bumboo





This was a harder one to glaze. Lemon and Lime Bob. $85




Orange Maori Bob. $75





Light Blue Super Carved Bob. $75





Brown Green Tattoo Bob. $75 sold Bumboo.






Tall Blue Super carved light Caribbean Blue Bob. $85





Tall Orange Speckled Super Carved Bob. $85





Poka Dot Bob in Yellow and Caribbean Blue. $75






Deconstructed, he's lost his head Bob. $100








Bob has a glaze skip so he'll re-fire when I do the first group of Sacramento Crawl mugs.


As you can see I love to hand carve Tiki Bob's. It more fun to make these unique Bob's than to do one than a run. However I've been told it's time to move on and to make more art away from Tiki Bob. So if I can restrain myself I'll only do requested Tiki Bob's on the Wish Lists from this point on.

That's it for the sale until tomorrow when I'll offer necklaces. If you see any that you would like to have PM or Post here. I'll keep an eye out. Thank you for looking and commenting too. I enjoy it all.

Brought over from the last page to make it easy to see them all.

Here's looking at you Bob. $75.









Pink Bob is a tall Bob. $85.





Orange midcentury with peanut skin. $75.





Upside down Bob needs to be used with a straw to keep your lips away from his butt. $85.





Blue Bamboo Bob at night. $75. Sold Honaunau.





This Tattoo mug actually sparkles in the sun! The photos just don't show how rich the glaze is. $85.






I couldn't come up with a name for this one but KonaKaiBaby has suggested Cherry Banana Bob. $75

ZeroTiki & hang10tiki thank you so much. It's time to move on from Tiki Bob. I need to explore what's possible in ceramics.
I'll still make them during the Wish List if requested but I need to do new projects so this thread isn't the same old thing, poor Bob.

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

I'm going to close the Tiki Bob sale here in a couple of days and move it to facebook. Meanwhile I'm working on the crawl mugs and one big project soon to be revealed.

Cheers, Wendy

Hi Friends, I stole this from facebook. Doug asked if he could use one of my Tiki Bob's as an inspiration for his new work of art. I was so thrilled to be a part of his artwork.


Like 1 13 hrs
..
Doug Horne I want to give a shout out to Wendy Cevola and her design of the Tiki Bob mug coming off if his face. I liked the idea of combining the new design with the old designed mug he is holding. A very subtle hint to the Tiki revival. Great design Wendy!

I think it's obvious which one he liked!



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

zerostreet surprised me by putting my name (bottom left)on his recent work of art. This has been a really fun month!



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

Thank you Dough and Robert you are so super talented and such good friends. Wendy

Wow, received my 2 mugs today-- in the photos, you can get a sense of it, but in-person they are a whole different story! Incredibly well-made and the subtle details are gorgeous. I'm blown away. Thanks Wendy-- really beautiful work!

little lost tiki ditto ditto ditto. You resemble those remarks completely. Thank you so much for all those wonderful words. I'm looking forward to my Kinny hugs at Oasis.

Bumboo I appreciate your comments so much. I'm glad those mugs are in your hands.

==============================
There is so much joy in art and in making friends on Tiki Central. I hope everyone who sees us at Tiki Oasis will come up and say hi.
==============================

I just wasn't going to be happy until I got to see all of Tiki Diablo's Home Depot tikis. They are finally in Elk Grove.

He did a wonderful job designing these and the quality is really good. Nice and heavy.








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

Dan and I came home from a lunch in Lodi, California. The restaurant we were at had a beautiful bathroom. Yes I still like to find fun bathrooms to share!

When we got home it was on the news that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis were in Lodi for their honeymoon. Imagine that! Maybe they used this bathroom, well maybe she did.

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

Dan and I went on a tiki hunt. I saw this mug on a shelf.


It is ceramic but the teeth had been painted with an enamel paint.


Here's the bottom. Anyone recognize who made this?


When we got home I tried to remove the paint with fingernail polish remover but that didn't work.


So I took a razor blade and scrapped off as much as I could.


Already it looked better.


I just followed the lead of the original artist and painted the teeth with more enamel. Dan now likes this mug a lot.


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

I've been super busy and I'll be posting my work in the coming days. Thank you all for the visit, Wendy

I just received The Amazing Moai in the mail yesterday. Pages and pages of all these beautiful Bobs, and this lonely fella all by himself in their midst. I just had to have him!










He's called Amazing because of the maze on the back. If this indicative of the rest of Wendy's work, it is truly amazing! Heavy, solid and BIG! I love it!
Thanks, Wendy!

Biotron2000 I bet he's no longer sad now that he has a new home. I'm super happy that you like him and posted here. Thank you, Wendy


hang10tiki I wonder what the woman's bathroom looks like. At first I thought you would yell into the cone to talk to another room.

We are having fun, everyday is a tiki adventour. We watch the news and see people cut off going to Vegas on 15 due to the fire and then on 10 due to the bridge collapse. I would rather be trapped in Vegas, one of our favorite places along with our friends to hang out with.

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

Back in 2012 I made a mug with a flame on top that I called The Zombie's Torch. It was based on this menu.



I started by making 50 flames. Then I cast 30 of the mugs. The molds were bad and it took me hours on each mug to make them just right. So after 30 I quit. I sold those with the understanding that in the future I would finish the run so that I could use up the other 20 flames.

Since I numbered the first 30 as 1/30, 2/30 I had to make the last 20 in different color combinations. I have finally finished. Now all the flames have been used.

In the past I showed all the steps to the making of each mug and how much carving I had to do. For the last ones I glazed them and these photos show how I paint them with enamel.

I have to paint them lying down so that the paint doesn't run.


Once they have dried overnight I can stand them upright.


Next I did the hair.


All done.


Next I painted the skirts.


This required two layers and four days. All done.


I used a skewer to do the tiny nipples.


All done and drying.


The Zombies on the reverse side needed two gold earrings and


their teeth painted.


The skirts are deep red but the flash makes them look pink. I started the flowers with a base coat.


Done.


Close up.


They are done and


they sit overnight until


I can put them into the house oven to set the enamel paint.


A view of some with the woman and


then the Zombies fresh out of the oven and without the flames.



This project took years to finish. I hope you all think they are worth waiting for! Wendy
