LoriLovesTiki thank you. I'm so grateful that anyone spends time to look at my posts. We don't have snow in my area but it's Southern California with all the unending great weather. We had a fun trip. It was very different from any others. In fact when we went to Alaska it was much warmer and sunny too.

hang10tiki HA! you are the same but with wood which is much harder. That reminds me to go check up your bar and carving threads. So many fun things to do and so little time.

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

More steps on making lids for my Maori Lamps and the new Rapa Nui mug.

Here is a repeated photo to show the Rapa Nui alphabet I copied for this mug.



The molds have dried for weeks and now it is time to do the first casts.

I put the Rapa Nui mug together and then


the lid mold. I strapped them. Will they leak or be fine?


No leaks. I don't like coming out to top off molds so for the molds that don't have excess depth at the top I put a funnel in place. I seal it with clay and then fill it to the top. That way as the mold removes water it pulls more slip into the mold. NO BABYSITTING and top offs.


We dump out as much left over slip as possible and then remove the funnel.


The next morning we opened the molds.


Are these lids cursed? Its not even out of the mold, still soft clay and there is already a huge crack!


I tipped the mold over and the lid came out onto the plastic covered board.


Once this cone top is firmer I will cut it off.


I dug out the cracked area and used clay of the same consistency so that it will shrink at the same rate and


I filled and smooth the crack.



I made a mistake that will cost me extra time when I finish each mug. I made the opening extra big for pouring out the slip.


That would have been fine but I should have made it the same size of the mug for at least at 1/2 inch first so that cutting off the excess clay at the top wasn't so close to the designs. Now I add clay to built it up. That takes time.


The backside of the mug cast better than the front. But with clay anything can be done to fine tune the project.


Out of the mold I cut the top off.


I can see all the designs and I will use a tool to re-carve each one.


All cleaned up.


Here is a second mug where I left the top edge rocky in shape.


Here are two styles of the backside. On the second one I raised the Nui and put a fish underneath.


There's more to come tomorrow, cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki thank you. I hope you are off this weekend and having fun.

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

39 years ago I married Dan Cevola on a Saturday. Today we play!


My mom met him when he was 5 years old. She instantly connected with him and he with her. 20 years later she introduced us.


We married in my moms backyard. I made Dan's outfit from a pattern for a Croatian Wedding outfit. We loved foreign clothing.


Mom did a good job.


Every day I am happy to be married to my sweetheart.





We are going to our most nostalgic pizza parlor from when we were dating today and to walk through a flea market that is still next door. So off we go.

Hugs to you all, Wendy

Wow, indeed!

HAPPY Anniversary! What fantastic photos.

Absolutely beautiful smiles, plus beautiful outfits. I am usually 100% opposed to facial hair, but have to say Dan was truly rockin' it.
Cheers (Pizza party!)

hang10tiki AHHHHHHHHHHHH

bamalamalu we had a wonderfully perfect day and when it ended I started glazing the Wish List! Thank you.

hang10tiki you are such a cute cartoon.

TikiAno it couldn't have been better.

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

Here's our 39th wedding anniversary photos.

First we went to a flea market that we haunted when we first got married. In later years it started just selling new things. Today I got to cross an item off my have to have list. I found a real boat steering wheel for $20. Mint condition.


Then right next door to our favorite pizza place Roma's. Owned by an Italian family. I should have taken the photos before I covered the pizzas with parmesan and salad dressing. I hid from view all the goodies. Yes we brought most of it home.


At stop lights I prevent boredom by reading license plates. I finally on this day found one with my old initials. I used to be Wendy Eve Dawson.


At home we exchanged gifts. Dan got his SHAG book and


I got an Egyptian cat that I had forgotten about. Ever since Dan bought me a bust developer machine for Xmas I pick out my own presents during the year. I forget about what I found and then I do get surprises.


From EBay I found these shakers. We hope they are vintage. The stoppers look old.


Then Dan really did surprise me with another mid-century cat in a size I hadn't seen before. It made my day. Two cats one for our Egyptian bedroom and one for downstairs.


We also exchanged love letters. We have a real love match. Thank you all for sharing the day with us.


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

Back now to Wish List #7. I still have a few more things to show that were made a while back and are still drying.

Getting back to the lids for the Maori lamps. I decided that the first cast had cracked because I left it in the mold overnight which is a form of drying. So the next four I cast I removed from the mold within 3 hours of casting.

It worked. I was later able to carve them and then to bisque fire them without any cracking. Yippy!!! Now I have more lids than lamps cast.


--------

Dan works for tikis. I have to make things he requests so that he'll continue to be my heavy lifter. So right at the end of casting he requested a mermaid bowl after seeing the one I made for Nelson Osorio.

I cast the large bowl.


Then I cast four of my Bumatay fish. I like how some molds look 3D when photographed.


I thought that a mermaid should have fish surrounding her.


Once she was done, Dan didn't want scales on her tail I


attached her to the bowl along with four Bumatay fish.





After a couple of days of slowly drying it was time to fine tune the fish with more detail.


Dan wanted a ring of tapa carved around the sides.


All done and ready to continue drying.








Thank you all again for your visits and comments. You all bring such happiness into my life. Wendy

hang10tiki thank you, it was a fun bowl to make.

hang10tiki you would make a great detective. Did the post say if the place is still open?

TikiHula Kohlacharms has many things we've never seen before. It's not possible to collect it all. I like collections that are of all one place or artist. Like Chippy's Tiki Bob collection. Good to hear from you here or there.

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

Here's part one of my story of failure.

Owen Wright on fb designed an elaborate project for me to make for him. I tried but it could work out as designed. So I made this for him instead.


I took the pieces that I had started for his project and used them to make other things. Here is part one. I can't share his plans because we may try it again on the next Wish List #8.

He wanted this little tiki that Sophi Loren was holding.


To make it I cast a mug and then cut it up.


I rolled and sealed a nice tube for the moai's body.


Then I just started building by adding pieces of


clay,



The head is solid. It works as long as this is dried for weeks in and out of a plastic bag.



He has really bad posture but he's as close as I could make him to the picture with Sophia.












A long time ago to make the handles for a cannibal pot I would make each piece separately. Now I put the clay on and carve it.


Then I finish it off. Faster and easier.


I add the flames while it is upside down.


Now he is all done and


ready to dry. The coconut cannibal bowl with moai.



Cheers, Wendy

Happy Anniversary!!!

Looks like you 2 had a great time. Not sure we want to hear the story of the bust developer machine

Hang10 - I have a little wooden mug from Sam's. My friend in the navy has been there a few times and says it is pretty cool!
