hang10tiki thank you for the fix and compliments. I think I'll go and change out my sideways version with yours.

Danno ahhhhhhh, thanks so much.

cy so funny I have my Frog Island T-shirt on right now! Thank you for the comment and the shirt, it goes on all my vacations.

hang10tiki it's such a thrill to hear that. Feel free to post them and your Tiki Caliente photos. Thank you.

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

The photos that hang10tiki mentioned are in the new issue of Tiki Magazine. Since it is out now I feel free to post the photos from the last issue that have my article by Duane Orzol aka Psycho Tiki D and photos by Mike Remmel aka Tiki Hula.

I don't think you can read it here but you can see the photos of my art.














This magazine is so much fun to read. If you are into tiki or midcentury you need a subscription to this magazine. Cheers, Wendy

I've never been a business so I've never had an advertising card. But I thought it would be fun to have my niece make some buttons.

I have brought 100 to Tiki Oasis 16 to hand out. They cost me 40 cents each so only one per person until they are gone. I hope to see many of you soon.







Cheers, Wendy

Tiki Oasis 16 or bust!


We left on Saturday and along the way we hunted for tikis.

In Paso Robles we found this tiki display.


Dan wished he could have bought the Kon Tiki plate.


But Dan didn't leave empty handed. He found two vintage mugs glazed differently from those he had at home.


We drove on to Morrow Bay for the night. At an antique store Dan found a wooden tiki lighter.


We had dinner at the Harbor Hut with a view of the huge rock.


Dan and I split this huge amount of ice cream.


The next day we visited family in Santa Barbara and then drove on to Ventura where Dan found Latour of Hawaii salt and peppers. They look
just like Louie B's.


Then we went to Ventiki. I wanted to see where they hung the chunk lamp that had the tikis on it that I sculpted.


We posed for Tiki Magazine however we just found out from hang10tiki that we made that page. Photos soon.


On Monday we made it to the Crowne Plaza. No elevators this year they assigned us a room on the ground floor. We can see our car out the window!


We have stayed in the room next door in 2014 and Saturday night a band set up and played into the am. Fingers crossed that won't happen again.

Don't forget to ask for a pin if you are at Oasis this year. Cheers, Wendy

Looks like you had a good journey down here. Thanks for stopping by to say hi! Looking forward to chatting with you at Oasis. Feel free to stop by our room party. It is on Saturday from 2-4 (don't know which room yet). We are having an art show as well as drinks.

lunavideogames you know what I forgot? I didn't get a photo of you wearing the Tramp Stamp necklace. I need one. It was fun to see you at your business.

TikiAno yes we did, photos below. See you soon. Don't let me forget to take the photo after you choose your necklace.

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

If you are coming to Tiki Oasis there is an additional stop worth making. 10 minutes away is the town of Ocean Beach. At the antique mall on Newport Blvd. Matt Tiki Man Willis has so many tikis for sale it's a real attraction.


Just when you think you have seen it all you travel along the back wall and come to this second huge area. Happy shopping!


Yes TikiAno we made it to the Bali Hai yesterday. I can look back for 10 years of standing at this tiki.


We had a window seat and


enjoyed the view of San Diego. Lunch was great.


We didn't remember these paintings so I had a photo op.


Later in the day we made our first trip to visit Buzzy and to see his collection.


I got to see the tikis that will soon leave for Las Vegas and the Golden Tiki. That's another place we haven't seen yet.


Here Buzzy is holding a drum he carved. It has a great tone. Be sure to check out Buzzy's unique art.


A perfect trip so far. Cheers, Wendy

In 1999 our neighbor dumped their cat at the SPCA. We went and rescued her and re-named her Sherry.

We put her at the vet's to stay while were are at Tiki Oasis 16. He just called us to say that she
had a hair ball that she got up but the next morning she developed breathing problems and before
they could do an x-ray she passed away. We will miss her horribly. We are having a good cry tonight
but tomorrow we will buck up and enjoy seeing all our friends. Hug your pet today. Wendy

Wendy (& Dan), so sorry for your loss. I just saw the news on Facebook, too. Extra hugs for you tomorrow!

You gave Sherry a wonderful home after rescuing her, which is an amazingly great thing to do.

See you soon.

Heath, TikiAno,and Danno your messages are very much appreciated.

Kelly sent this photo to me. Love it.


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

I finished glazing the rest of the wedding mugs for Nate Kranda and Shannon.


FIred.


Scrubbed and rinsed.


Some of the new mugs ready to glaze.


He requested two in raspberry. This is a hard glaze color to find because just a bit of too much red will throw it off. I choose a Duncan Cover Coat under-glaze and covered the entire outside with it.


Next I did the tapa lamp/torch.


Backside.


I'm always cooking up tikis in the kitchen.


There was one mug Nate left up to me to choose the colors. This will be his garage mug. Steel plates in grey with dark silver screws.


I did do the eyes in black.


These are all wedding mugs.


These are the four lamp/torches which are for sale.


Also for sale is this morning after Tiki Bob. He ate and drank too much at Tiki Oasis 16 and is saying Whoa is me!


This time around I could risk the noses running so all the glazing was done with CN under-glaze which self glosses. It also allowed me to paint on the swords after the fact. So I have extras in case those with names have a problem. He bought these anyway so I hope they turn out.


White Cover Coat 2 layers.


Drying outside between coats.


Clear glaze 3 layers with drying between.





The two raspberry mugs had to be completely covered with clear. I sure hope the color is close enough.


Final drying before they go into the kiln.


Bottom shelf. No crowding since I don't have anything else to fire.


Top shelf. These were all starting to cool as we drove off to Tiki Oasis 16.


I hope to see many of you in the next three days. We always go home on Sunday to beat the LA traffic.

I'm feeling much better now and Dan's OK too. Cheers, Wendy

bamalamalu thank you. It's been good to have the distraction. So many friends to hug is a really big help.

JenTiki I haven't seen her yet. I am so lucky to be a part of your gift. I've told Dan to take lots of photos.

Cheers, Wendy
