Wendy (and Dan),

THANK YOU for the massive new mold-making post. That is just incredibly helpful. I'm still reading the thread from the start, and I'm at page 150 so far.

But I think, if I have counted the posts correctly, it's time to congratulate you on 500 pages in this thread. So much sharing and hard work! I'm in awe.

bobtiki thank you. I started ceramics in 2010 in August. I guess I didn't work hard enough to make it to 100 pages a year. I'll have to try harder. Thank you for reading my pages. I hope there are many times that you laugh. I've gotten many good friends from these pages you can join the crowd.

hang10tiki I wonder how many of these pages are yours! Thank you for helping me keep it fun.

Danno That's so good to hear. I hope that we all have fun here. I sure do.


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

Dinner's ready, I'll be back later after my champagne! Cheers, Wendy

Thank you! I certainly have laughed a lot so far. It's a real page-turner! I'm making notes and picking up little tips and tricks as I go.

Dan and I are celebrating our 38th wedding anniversary today. My gift was a trip to the gold country and Yosemite.

When you head to the gold country you see how much of California is still empty.


We drove past reservoir's and saw where people who work in a huge prison live. Yep they are in a gated community.


Then we reached Jamestown.


First antique store had this treasure for us. It's a PNG hunter with a spear and a dead alligator or crocodile over his shoulder. A wonderful find.


I wanted a photo of this fun sign.


We had lunch and then went on to Sonora.


Dan passed on the Trader Vic's skulls since he had a couple but they were fun to find.



Now to Yosemite National Park.


To beat traffic we drove into the park very early.



We still ended up sitting at a detour for 10 minutes. We were sent across a temporary bridge.



Then we saw the huge landslide covering the road we had been on. I remembered hearing about this on the news. Wow!


I think Yosemite should have been named Yostone for all the giant rocks that were everywhere.


Once we were into the park we came across beautiful waterfalls every other mile.








We went to the Ahwahnee Hotel now named the Majestic for a breakfast buffet.


We just wanted to sit in this room for an hour.


This was a relaxing stop after a long drive.


We walked around out back.


We drove on every road that we could find.


Interesting?


Then it was time to head home. Which is only 3.5 hours away. I can't believe we have never been here before.


One last look back at the Yosemite Valley. You can see one of the waterfalls at the very top.


On the way home we stopped at a thrift store in Oakdale. We were greeted with this funky tiki arch. A fun end to our anniversary adventure.

Thank you all for the congrats. We do feel very lucky to have this long successful marriage. The experts say we'll live longer because of it.

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

I've been making so many things that it was already time to go back to Alpha Fired Arts for more slip. I also ordered glaze for the pineapple.
I decided that beauty trumps nature. I hope it works out.


Dan and I went to a Chili festival near our home. I like to go for walks and its fun to have something to look at.


I got a free oil funnel. Of course I'll use it with clay.


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

Play time is over and now it's back to work.

With the nose healed it was time to assemble the Frankoma coconut goblet.
First I widened the lip of the coconut.


Then I stuck it on the head which had a hole in it to prevent air from being trapped. All done and ready to slowly dry.











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

We are soooooooooo lucky. There is a tiki bar/restaurant being built in Sacramento. One of the owners Buddy wished for a special mug to drink from at the opening. I couldn't say no and jumped it ahead with two other wishes I have in the works. I'm sneaking them in with the crawl mugs.

Here's Buddy's mug which is based on the signature tiki of the bar which will be called The Jungle Bird.

I can share the logo but not a photo of the tiki which I used to make the mug.


I printed the logo in the right size and then cut it out and dipped it into water.


I stuck it on the mug.


I used a tool to press into the clay.



When I finished I peeled it off.


This is what it looked like.


Then I used a stick with an end that I sanded straight across.


I stopped here and I'll fine tune it when the clay is drier.


Next I worked on the bird.


Done for now.


Now I show the step by steps as I built the body.

















Now that the body is build I need to cover it with a loose plastic bag to let the clay firm up so that I can carve in the detail.


A day later I can now do all the rest of the carving.









































All done and posing. This will be fun to glaze.

















It will take a couple of weeks for it to slowly dry. I put it into a loose plastic bag then I take it out for a couple of hours and then back in again. If I didn't dry it this slowly it will crack.

Cheers, Wendy

Wow wow wow. Congratulations on continued page-posting, Wendy & Dan fandom, and keeping all of us interested for 500 pages (and going). Of course, Jon is responsible for at least half of these pages, but still, pretty impressive.

(just kidding).

Blown away by the Jungle Bird mug. Not only is a groovy name for a bar, the mug is spectacular. Look forward to seeing it progress.

And a TC congratulations on your anniversary! Looks like you both had a great adventure and I look to you guys as inspiration- even if my wife doesn't make me tiki mugs... ha!

TikiAno nope she doesn't make tiki mugs but she made one adorable Tiki Ari. How about an updated photo.

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

While the mold for the Sacramento Crawl mug was drying I had time to work on some other projects. Owen Wright on facebook has wished for a huge bowl.
He drew this picture.


Four full size Tiki Bobs with indentations on the heads so rum flames can be lit. A topless hula girl with a grass skirt in the center of the bowl.


A small monkey kind of hidden and wearing a blue fez. Well this sounds fun so it was time to start. Oh, I forgot to mention that each Tiki Bob and the bowl were to be super carved!


It was time to pour a big bowl. This mold dried way faster than the crawl mug mold.


Then the Tiki Bob's were poured along with


one hula girl.


The pieces are adding up!


I took the bowl out of the mold by having Dan tip the mold while I held this board in place.


I got it in place and then cleaned off the mold lines.


Then I wrapped up the Tiki Bob's the girl and


then the bowl so that they would firm up overnight.



I use a label scrapper to cut the clay. This is a great tool.


It came off in one piece. I always save this clay to use in many ways.


Now I have the hula girl ready to work on.


First I use some of that saved clay to build more hair.




Each Tiki Bob needed a cap on the top.


It was easy to press down against the air pressure. When I had it where I wanted I then cut a hole in the bottom to relieve the pressure. This also prevents it from blowing up in the kiln.


It only works to go so far before the clay needs to rest overnight. Me too!

Cheers, Wendy
