Awesome! Love Mr & Mrs Bob! Yes, will be great seeing the final version with the married human version.

Treg's mug looks killer.... is that for the little one?

Looking great Wendy, watching you work makes me want to get my hands on some clay. It's been tooooo long.

lunavideogames there is nothing more fun than opeing a kiln full of glazed projects. I have so many challenges this time around but since I am months ahead of my personal schedule I'll take my time to do them extra good.

TikiAno I always ask for photos. I don't always get them. I'll keep my fingers crossed. I do have a photo of the proposal that I will share with the glazed mugs. Oh wait I can't do that since they are a surprise for the brids. Well I'll do it all after the wedding.

(Treg mug looks killer.... is that for the little one?) Is pregnant?

You worked clay into a very precious little boy. Get him involved with the clay. I started at 6 months so he's old enough.

---------------------------

Wish List #6 progress report.

Well I don't always make something that works out. My Bob Marley didn't look like him at all so he needed to be scrapped.


So I said goodbye and


whipped out a sharp knife and


cleaned up the back of the mug.


Kenneth and I had a nice chat on the phone and decided that I would just make another Tree of Life mug.


I tried to match them but I also had to take into account the first one is drying and had already shrunk.


These are done now and I'm onto the next wish. Cheers, Wendy

Thank you all for the visits.


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

Wish List #6 update. This one is personal. On our way to Tiki Oasis 15 we stopped to visit family. This photo shows my
Great-nephew. He is a glass artist. It was near my birthday so he surprised me with one of his beautiful pieces. Actually he let me pick out my favorite. He and I are both wearing one in the photo.


His birthday is in a couple of months so I added him to the Wish List. He's not a tiki person so I made him a fogcutter mug with his initials BMW. It's that fun?

I just started by carving lines down the sides.


Then some tapa designs.


A wet brush takes the edges off.





His initials.









Happy Thanksgiving everyone. May you have a joyful holiday. Wendy and Dan

Yes Wendy, my wife Emily is pregnant. She is due on the 9th of December but it seems like she might be early, any day now... It is exciting, but it has been a lot of work in preperation. Emily is ready to not be pregnant anymore.

TikiAno - Yes, for the baby to break when they are older... I hope not!

hang10tiki Happy Holidays

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

Wish List #6 progress report. This Rat Fink holding a Moai tiki mug is for Cole Unger. He said to just make him a mug so here's what I did for him. I hope he likes it.

I started with one of my fogcutter blanks. I built out a platform for his feet to rest one with the toes over the end.


Working from the bottom up I know I'll not run out of room. Next came the bent legs, tail and shorts bottoms.


Next the belly. All the time I'm thinking don't allow any tiny air bubbles to get in there behind the added clay.


Now the head.


I built a shoulder and added an arm here


and an arm there then


the Moai mug.


I built the bottom jaw and added teeth. Next comes the top of the head with the nose. There are days between parts being added so that the clay can firm up. It's not all done at once.


Attached and smoothed.


Ears eyes and nose tip.


Now he's posing.











Now I've added the design to the rest of the mug and guess what he's posing again!















All done and slowly drying. On fb Von Franko did a wonderful drawing of crying over a dead rat vink. He used a program to bring it to life. Chippy did the same thing to his Hot Tub Hula Girls and I posted it on my fb page. If you haven't already ask to friend me.

Thank you for the Holiday Visits. Wendy

Wish List #6 progress report.

As many of you know Dan is my helper. He not only does the heavy lifting when we are casting he also does my home chores. To keep this going he gets to make Wishes and I find him tikis on our hunts. It works out really well for us. We never have tiki wars.

A while back on the Wish List I made this variation of the Tiki Modern mug by RVICTOR. Dan requested tapa designs all the way around while the original design was on one half of the mug. This is the mug which I showed at the time I made it.




Now he changed his mind. He wanted me to do one with only half tapa. So here's the mug he'll keep. The first one is for sale.










Here's some catch up photos of us on Tiki Hunts.

We pulled into a parking lot of an antique store that Dan doesn't like. The reason is that in 15 years of hunting we have only found one tiki there. But I like the store.

I said to Dan I want to find a tiki fork and knife set that we've never seen before. Imagine this that is exactly what I found in the store!!! They even had some low end tiki mugs that we didn't need. Dealers are catching on.


When Tiki Hula saw how huge this years crawl mug was he told me for next year mold a rum key, full size. We've been checking them out Mike.


Dan is also a record collector. He searches every box we come across in antique stores and at garage sales. He found one here


and here.


He left for a haircut and came home looking like this. I've gotten my husband back! I'll take him no matter how he fixes up.


Cheers, Wendy

That certainly explains all of the amazing ceramic art you are making. Wonderful stuff!

amate thank you so much. I didn't start tiki art until 10 years ago. You are going to pass me up in creativity really fast. Your last creation shows your talent.

hang10tiki thank you. I was hoping for a Rat Fink comment. See you at Oasis next summer if not sooner.


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

Wish List #6 progress report. I would say I'm working towards the end but then I remember the 23 Hot Tub Hula Girl wishes!

The next mug is made for a person who "wishes" to remain anonymous. Now that's funny. He is a tiki person.

He requested two mugs which I'll show over the next few days. Both were to reflect Jimmy Buffett's lifestyle. I googled some images and went to work.

I started with a Sacramento Crawl mug. I scraped off the sign so I could add new words.


It now says Cheeseburger in Paradise. I did as close as possible to their lettering and added the little palm on top.


Next I removed all the lines that were carved in and made a beach scene with sand, the ocean and a tall mountain.


Next I started to change the side. I added a classic Jimmy Buffet surf board.


I added their designs and then I scraped off the face on the tiki.


I carved Magaritaville into the sign at the top.


Now I needed to change the front. He requested a stack of cheeseburgers.


He's going to get them. Also Buffet likes parrots so I'm altering the toucan.


The foliage has changed and now there is a parrot.


Now I carved the cheeseburgers.


Done.












One down and one more to go. Thank you for the visits. Even when no one writes I know from the numbers that there have been visits. I appreciate them. Cheers, Wendy

I'd want to remain anonymous here too if I was requesting Jimmy Buffett mugs!

Niiiiiiice. All of them.

To reply (late) to your comment, no, Tiki Ari hasn't yet handled (wet) clay- though he keeps trying to grab the lion wall tiles I made for him. One day he will grab one and hold on- and there will be one (or two) less pieces of art on his wall! (We already had to remove a quilt a neighbor made for him when he was big enough to stand up in his crib and pull it down (on top of him)). He's a sneaky little bugger, that one.

Great to see Dan's face once again. Welcome back, Dan!
