TikiAno I'm waiting for Kinney to comment. I'm glad everyone likes it.


===================================
Wish List #6 the reasons for re-glazing all these mugs.

I actually didn't find all the defects right off. So I took some black velvet photos and then looking them over I found a spot here and there.

First the green Tiki Bob for Joshua Bell.





I took it outside to look it over and found


that the mug only had thin lips. So I glazed it to re-fire.


Then I took photos of these Tiki Bob's front and


back.


This mug had glaze that was too thin at the bottom.


Then I found this glaze skip.


So I re-glazed the entire mug.


This one had two skips and


some thin areas.


So I re-glazed the entire mug.


That took a long time.


A new problem came up with this mug. Some of the crystals didn't melt. There were rough rocks here and there. Dan used a dremmel and removed them for me.


Then I re-glazed this one.


The Dalmation Bob was fine and he's been put in my to-sell pile.

Work Work and more work but that's Okay. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki it's so much fun to see how they look when I pull them out of the kiln. Check out the next one.

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

I am so happy. My experiment worked. So now I can add this to the type of mugs I will do for the Wish List.
Of course Dan said this one would be a perfect gift for his Valentines Day.

So here's what I did. I painted the blank fogcutter mug with Duncan CN glazes. I showed that before.
None ran and the mugs turned out just right.

I present Diamond Head the Island.



















Any white streaking you see are just flash lights. I should have used my MadDogMike portable studio.

Cheers, Wendy

Wish List #6 always includes Dan since he works for tikis. This green Maori lamp is for him. It's already been taken to be wired.

Maori Lamp #4.

After the first firing I found a few thin areas. You do 3 layers and sometimes it runs and sometimes it's too thin. You just never know. However that is what happens with glazes. Under-glazes can be applied thicker and they won't run.


So I got out the glaze again and applied one more coat and a little more to the thin areas.


All done and fired the second time.














Remember the volcano bowl that kept having the glaze crack and peel as it dried? The glaze finally stuck and I fired it.


Volcano Island.


There were some glaze skips on the outside. So I re-glazed and fire it a second time.


No skips and the whole bowl is fine. $100 plus shipping if anyone is interested. It is large and heavy.


I'm always happy to post here. Thank you for looking, Wendy

Wow, the lamp looks fantastic. Volcano Bowl super cool and volcano-y.

I have to say, I'm really digging the one color Bob. I mean, REALLY digging it. Really, really digging it. Could this be a new angle on new Bobs moving forward? Am I alone in this?

I just LOVE the green Maori lamp! I loved the others but that green shade is just fantastic. And as I said on FB the Diamond Head mug is perfect. I shouldn't be at all surprised that Dan nabbed it.

The Green Maori Lamp is simply fantastic!!! The green glaze, detailed carving, and the extended top look great. Love seeing how these continue to evolve.

Wow, I miss one day on Tiki Central and I come back to so much fun reading. You all give me such a grand gift of happiness I can't believe it has happened except that I know I'm grinning like a fool! Thank you all.


hang10tiki it was fun to do something entirely new. I think that I will do a bowl experiment next.

WooHooWahine me too. That's a favorite green. Duncan's leaf green. It always works well.

kingstiedye ahhhh, thank you. See you in a week or so. I hope your cold is gone.

Danno it feels so good to do an experiment and to have it turn out and to be "liked". Thank you.

little lost tiki THANK YOU!!! It's so wonderful to have you as my art brother. It was a joy to make your art into the bowl. You know I'm crazy for your birds and your words.

TikiAno it is a unique Tiki Bob for sure and without Joshua's wife it would never have been made. This is why I really enjoy doing the Wish List. I get to tap into so many creative mind.

Your comment is the only one I received about the volcano bowl so I am very thankful to have it.

LoriLovesTiki I'm hopeful that on the next Wish List I'll be asked to do more projects like the diamond head mug. Or even one just like it. Dan said he wouldn't mind.

I like the green lamp a lot. It's being wired right now. Dan decided that he would use the shade I decorated with the felt pen for it. I approved it.

Tyber Tiki one of my all time biggest challenges and best wish ever. I always think of you when I make one. Four total. I wonder if anyone will want one in purple someday.

Joshua Bell how fun that your wife looks like she could be my sister. For many years while working at the hospital I kept my hair at that length too. I'll look forward to the next photos, this one is perfect.

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

Is it OK if I mention that I have the honor of being the "featured artist" in the next issue of Tiki Magazine? I hope you all have subscriptions. This magazine is so special to us that this is a dream come true for me. I hope that I get many comments about the article.

It was written by Psycho Tiki D aka Duane Orzol and photographed by Tiki Hula aka Mike Remmel. They both did such a fine job that I'm forever in their debt. I hope you can have the chance to see what a fun journey it's been to get here.

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

Back to work.

I made sets of Tiki Bobs for weddings on this Wish List but these mugs were for an anniversary celebration.














==
All done and out of the kiln. They have already been shipped.
















==

This is the second "Fun Fake" mug I've made for Kenneth Graham McNeil.





I don't do tiny lettering very well but I'm willing to try.





Fired and out of the kiln.








On the bottom it says fun fake and my name and copy write. No one will be fooled for long.

==

2nd time the green on the lips filled in and all was just fine.








Thank you all so much for making my life so much fun. You are all wonderful friends, Wendy
