HOW MANY STEPS DOES IT TAKE TO MAKE A STOOL?

At least you didn't ask: How many stools are on the steps.

hang10tiki I was hoping for a comment like yours. It proves that someone read all those words I typed. Thank you!

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

Wish List #6 the Theo Stool Bob is finished.

He requested hand holding a coconut cup. Lori these sure are popular.
I made the cup and outlined the hand and


attached them.


Close up.


I started all the hibiscus flowers of the lei.


Then I added sticky clay to the stool and stuck on Tiki Bob.


All done and posing.














Now I'm on to the next Wish! Cheers, Wendy

Wish List #6 continues on with a cartoon character combined with tiki for Muskrat aka Keith R.




Here's the first 3 days of progress.

I started with a fogcutter mug and added a ring of clay to be the bottom of the shirt.


Then I began to build the body.


Shirt and scarf detail are added then


arms and then


hands.


We had decided the legs were to skinny to support the weight so we put him sitting on a tiki seat.


I made tiki masks and placed them all the way around the seat.


I made some glasses for him and put them on his face.


While he is relaxing on his tiki seat I started his


fez.


I made a straw hole in the fez and


added the tassel. I made sure it fits.


Day four begins tomorrow. Cheers, Wendy

More Wows! I love everyone's new design ideas (fun surprise seeing Morocco Mole!) And the execution is incredible - that Bob/Octopus mug is a marvel.

hang10tiki Tiki Bob just does so many conversions it's hard to count them. I still go back and look at the composites you made of all the past Bobs. That was a wonderful gift.

bamalamalu your post is why I do this. I'm a ham and I love to read the comments so much. Thank you. It's also fun for me to open a Wish List and to see what everyone's Wishes.

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

Wish List #6 another one done. Muskrat's Morocco Mole (thank you bamalamau) us finished and ready to slowly dry for the next month. This is why I'm making more of the Wishes rather than glazing what has already fired. Nothing is fast in ceramics.



















He's a happy guy.



Thank you all for the visits, Wendy

Wish List #6 continues on...

I will be changing the Moroccan Mole later today so that he is holding a small Tiki Bob. This was an add on request that can still be done because the clay is not yet dried out.

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

The next project that I'm work on is for Jen Tiki. Ken Ruzic (you sweet man) gave Jen permission to use one of his paintings for her Wish. She wanted me to make a bowl. So here begins the step by steps.

If you watched the first two attempts at doing this bowl you know I needed to find a better way. Here are the steps that worked. Third time was the charm.


I studied Kinney's painting of the bowl so that I could figure out how I could make it in clay. There are many challenges that I'll share over the next few days.

First my only bowl mold was for a bowl too short to work. So I cast two.


The first time I failed when I let the bowl dry out too much. They I cast again and tried to combine them when they were too soft. This time I uncovered them and for a day I check them each hour. When they were just dry enough I went to work.

The first bowl had the top trimmed until it was flat.


The second bowl lost it's bottom and then was trimmed until I had just enough height to make the bowl I needed.


I smoothed and cleaned it with water.


Now I covered them with plastic until the next day. Now the clay parts were firm enough to lift to combine.

I first wiped the pieces down with water on a paper towel then I added sticky clay around the top of the first bowl.


I little lopsided but that will be adjusted.


Next I added clay around the outside of the bowl and


smoothed it with this tool.


Now I did the same thing with the inside of the bowl.


The last step was to once again smooth it with a wet paper towel.


Now the bowl was tall enough for Kinney's design.


To match the painting I pressed in one side.


Now the bowl is covered with a plastic bag and left for several days so the clay will "equalize" in wetness so that no cracks will appear.

Now it's time to study the painting for the next steps.

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

This past week Dan and I did get out of the house for some tiki hunting.


First we went to Roseville to the Treasure Trove antique mall. We saw this


and are just sharing the information. NOOOOO we didn't buy it.


Dan did find the PNG statue and


some small items. The blue glass PNG is by Paul Vituzzi (I may have spelled it wrong) a California glass artist.



Yesterday I took the whole day off and we traveled to Paradise, Chico and Yuba City. We found a canyon


that we didn't know existed and it's only 2.5 hours from our home!


In Paradise Dan found this tourist tiki. It was carved in 2001 and has the artists name on it. We thought it was a really good one because the mouth was deeply carved.


In the large antique mall in Chico Dan found records in a small tiki booth. It was so cute. The owner was there and I invited her to join Tiki Central. I hope she does.


We drove to see the Bidwell mansion but it was closed and being painted. We were told they only open on the weekends anyway.


It's always good to be back home. I'm rejuvenated and ready to tackle more Wish List projects.

Cheers, Wendy

Loki-Tiki the name on the tourist tiki is LAVAKA. Have you heard of him?

hang10tiki you are so right. Every day is special but they go so fast.

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

Wish List #6

Jen Tiki's bowl made with Ken Ruzic's (aka little lost tiki) bowl inspiration is complete.


I had to modify his delicate birds so that they wouldn't break. So there are differences.

I started with the mouth after changing the bottom of the bowl on this side.








I made the bird body hollow so that it wouldn't crack when drying.


Making the bodies larger I was able to connect them to the bowl for stability.












































Finished and posing.












Jen Tiki, Kinney, everyone did I get it right? Now it will very slowly dry for a few weeks. Cheers, Wendy

kingstiedye you are so close to us that you should come over often. I just work clay and Dan needs to have some man talk!
I love looking at Kinney's paintings and now I know this one really well. He is so creative. I so glad that Jen Tiki asked if we could copy this bowl.

swizzle there is this weird phenomenon that when you finish the sculpture it feels finished. Then later you remember it has to be fired, glazed and fired again. Then the OH NO's set in. You go through that? I hope my brushes will fit into all the birds nooks and crannies.


hang10tiki thank you. It's so fun to play with clay and with good friends. I'm counting the days.

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

Wish List #6 Progress Report.


Muskrat aka Keith Richardson asked if I could do a last minute alteration on his Moroccan Mole. First the arm amputation.


Next I made a tiny Tiki Bob.


I added clay to the back of the arm to make it rounder. I stuck it on and put the mug in his paw.


Side view.


Top view.


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

Next Project.

A while back I did a wall plaque for Barbara Lawrence. Her next Wish was for a mug also with her mermaid logo on the front.

I didn't want to wrap her logo around a mug because the tail or mirror would be missing when looking at it straight on. What I did was add clay and make the mug shaped like an eye. That widened the front.


I cut out her logo and wet it and put it on the front of the mug so I could trace it.


Pealed off it left an easy way to get it right.


I added clay and


built it into a 3D image.


Her logo also has stars and dots. I first added all these dots of clay.


Next I carved each one into a star.


All done.


This will be glazed with sparkles and will be a very pretty mug.

That's it for today. Thank you always for the visits and comments. Wendy
