Holler Waller I sure do love making wishes come true. Thank you.

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

Wish List #6 update.

Barbara Laurence's wall sign is drying and was now hard enough to lift and to peel off the aluminum foil on the back.


I cleaned it up and carved my name and date.


MadDogMike has done these and had them warp so I'm slowly drying it with weights. I'll take a photo tomorrow.


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

Next up is the wish for Moai Mike.

He had several requests for his mug. First he wanted his picture on the mug.


I started by building up the head and


then the body. He wanted it to appear as if he were standing on an island.


Details.


He owns the shirt that Elvis is wearing in this photos. So he wanted to be wearing it on the mug.


He said the mug should have a hut on the beach and palm trees.


Building the hut.


Cutting deeply into the mug for depth.


With the addition of palm trees, sharp mountains past the ocean and clouds in the sky I think it's done.












What do you think? Wendy

PS I put a coconut right over his head for fun

I love the carving work on the Moai Mike Mug! The entire composition looks great under that massive Palm tree.

hang10tiki as long as the coconut doesn't fall from the tree and hit him in the head all will be well.

Tyber Tiki Moai Mike asked for a beach scene. This will be fun to glaze.


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

I'm working hard. I hope to find time to post later today. Cheers, Wendy

bkrownd thank you. It's fun to make these mugs and to try to make them special.

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

Update on Wish List #6.

I go in waves of activities. I started the Wish List 4 months early because I needed to re-make 3 mugs for the Sacramento Crawl which is starting this Friday.

So as soon as I had enough for a kiln load that had dried I stopped making things and began to prepare a load for firing.


Dan sands the bottoms and outsides of the Hot Tub Hula Girls and I do all the rest.


Never skip the mask! I'm sanding Tyber Tiki's Washington D.C. mug.


This mug is for Chippy. The girl has been sanded flat and will be glazed wearing a swimsuit top.


I let Freddie Coester's severed head devil dry and now


I'm using this tool to age his skin.


The devil is now old and wrinkled.


Once everything was sanded Dan


got out the air compressor to blow off the dust.


We loaded the bottom shelf and


then the top shelf.


Now this will fire to maximally shrink all the pieces, this is called the bisque fire. I do a 2 hours preheat then a 13.5 slow ramp fire with a 25 minute hold. This really works well to prevent cracks and blow ups. Also if you shrink it well the glaze will not pop off during the second fire.

Cheers, Wendy

Holler Waller claytalk, that's cute. I'm happy to share.

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

Wish List #6 progress report.


The Retro Siren sign for Barbara Lawrence is slowly drying. I put weights on it to prevent warping. I hope it works.


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

This Tiki Bob is for Jay Sterling. He loves all things camping. He sent a list of the things he wanted on the mug. I hope I got it right. Here's how I put it all together.

First on the list was the camping symbol. He had mentioned doing a tent with Tiki Bob peeking out or a mug. So I did the symbol with one of the flaps open with Tiki Bob looking out. This is on the back of the mug. It's so tiny I sculpted with a brush.


I worked on him later when the clay was firmer.


Next he wanted dominos that added up to 17. I planted them like wooden tikis rooted to the ground.


A sign saying camp sight number 3.


Next I started making the hands that would hold more requests.


I attached the hands and made a little hot dog.


Now he is holding it.


Backside.



I made the other hand to hold a stick. Next I made a campfire rock surround with a big flame shooting up.



I added logs to the fire and a stack of smoores at the side. Did I spell that correctly?


This is a skunk. I copied it from a photo. I think the glazing will take away the squirrel look.


At the top back I added the words. HAPPY CAMPER.


Here's the mug.


Marshmallow on the stick melting for the smoores.















Jay, I hope I didn't miss anything. Happy Camping, Wendy

LoriLovesTiki just think of him as Peppy La Pew the romantic French lover skunk. I'm sure I spelled his name incorrectly.

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

Progress Report Wish List #6.

The kiln is open on the first load and nothing blew up.

Top level.


Bottom level.


The one most likely to blow up was the severed devil head and he was just fine.


Dan and I scrubbed every piece and rinsed them well.


Now they are on the dining room table covered over until the day I begin to glaze.


There are many more pieces to sand and many more to make. I have the binder and I'm working my way through all the projects.

Cheers, Wendy

IDoVoodoo I'm ready for those drawings. It sounds complicated and fun.


Tyber Tiki moreso when they have been glazed. You make me smile.


hang10tiki you do too.


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


The Sacrametno (CAP) city crawl begins tomorrow. I did get the last three mugs done and boxed.


We have loaded the car and are ready to begin all the crawl stops.


It's so nice to see our living room again. It's been a mess since January. This was a hard mug to make. It's also huge.


Once the crawl has ended and I have the left over mugs I will contact everyone on the list about shipping their mugs.


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

Progress Report on Wish List #6

More of the pieces were dry and it was time to sand and fine tune them.

16 more Hot Tub Hula Girls which will bring the total to 30 so far, all done this year.


I had this huge table of work to sand.


Looking from the other end it didn't get smaller.


Dan kept blowing off the dust and


loading the kiln as I worked in the garage.


I added detail to the Enchanted Tiki Hut mugs for Lloyd AlohaHaHa, Dale and Mahalo tiki.


Bullet came up with a new idea. Black will be rubbed into all the carving. He wanted the back ligher than the front so he asked me to do deeper carving on the front and less as I got to the back.


I loaded the top level of the kiln. Every thing that was on the table fit into my kiln, a miracle.


Here's the proof, nothing left to work on in the garage.



Two days later we opened the kiln to remove the projects.


The two smallest things were the Happy Camper marshmallow and the tip of the Led Zepplien staff.


Unloading all the HTHG's and inspecting everything I didn't find any with problems.


Now it was time to scrub and rinse all the items.


Filling the table with some and


then some more. I told Dan to take a photo of me so that I get some credit for all this work.


The table started like this and


After all the washing it looked like this.



At least I have the living room back! Cheers, Wendy
