hang10tiki you have such a nice smile!

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

Part II of the Owen Wright project I couldn't finish.

Instead of making a Kava Kava Man tiki I made the real Kava Kava Man who gave the Easter Island king nightmares.

I started with a cannibal pot. I got out a bunch of sticky clay and


began to re-shape the head.


Forehead.


Nose.


Eyes.


Beard.


Now I began to fine-tune the face.


So many tools that are perfect for each step. This one is a cutting loop.


Now I cut in to securely attach the ears.


He is done except for the fine-tuning once the clay is firm.


Days later I remove the extra attachment clay.


Now that he was done I figured out the best idea for him would be to turn him into a lamp. So I drilled the holes.


This one is so thick and heavy that it will take at least a month to dry him for firing. Hopefully I didn't trap any air.















I hope you all don't have nightmares after looking at him. Wendy

hang10tiki hahahahhah got it!

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

Wish List #7 I almost forgot to do an update for these mugs. I make these to go with the black velvet paintings.
I am doing four. Three for Wishers and one for Tiki Oasis. I even made a few extras. They are based on the tikis at Disneyland, Orlando.





























I am way behind in posting photos but I will work to catch up. Cheers, Wendy

MaukaHale ah that made me blush

hang10tiki me too, this one is kind of scary

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

You all know I love to mess with Tiki Bob. Months ago I did these two in a new way. Instead of carving I took a spike and I stirred the clay to make the design. I'm not sure if this introduces any trapped air that will explode in the kiln. I will find out.

The first one I did as a Maori Bob. This shows the tool I used.











This is the second one that I did spiking the body rather than the face.














Glazing these should be interesting too.


What do you all think of this new technique? It may have been done before but for me it is new.

I hope you are all having a fun Saturday evening, Wendy

hang10tiki thank you, I hope it will fire and glaze well. If so then I'll be using this style more often.

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

Big thank you to everyone who votes to keep us on Cool and Current. I have fun using the link to click over to my thread faster. I appreciate all of you who view and comment on my thread. You make this fun.

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

Well you have seen all the Wish List #7 projects sculpted and the black velvet stretched. There has been so much more work going on than I have been able to show that now it is time to just share some backstage photos. While I bring my thread up to date I have started glazing. I'm not going to run out of photos to post.


Wish List #7 began in June 2016 when I began pouring all the pieces that I could use to make each project. I filled the garage and house with them. It really helped to speed things up.

This is what the garage work table looked like in October 2016 as I just made a few extra pieces not on the list.


The Sacramento Crawl mug for 2017 is based on this restaurant which was suggested by Psycho Tiki D. It worked out well because this year the mug is also being made in a small number for lunarvideogames home bar in San Diego called Tiki the Hut.


With one mold I could pour and clean one mug per day.


It's been fun watching the numbers grow.


Hoping that there would be a few wishes for Frankoma bowls I made and stored the little tikis in Tupperware.


The dining room table has both greenware pieces drying and pieces ready to be used stored in plastic bags.


One day we forgot we had poured a crawl mug and didn't notice until the next day. It was 2 inches thick in muck.


The outside of the mug looked fine so I turned it on it's side and


from the bottom I dug out all the muck.


This will not be a mug I will turn it into a lamp.


I added sticky clay as glue and


pressed down clay on the top. I trimmed it and detailed it and added a hole to the top.


Then I added a hole to the back.


I have sanded a whole kiln load and I am loading the kiln as tightly as I can.


It is OK to stack green ware for firing. Nothing will stick.


Dan is blowing off the sanding dust. A kiln lasts longer if you keep the dust out and off of the wires.


We wear our face masks to save our lungs.


I loaded it completely full.


Every single day we pour more pieces and a crawl mug.


Now the nook is filling up.


Whenever I have a batch dry I sand them and Dan blows off the dust. Now the kiln room is filling up with projects to fire.


The kiln is opened and the pieces are now ready to be washed. It is freezing outside so


they were carried inside where I will wash them in a big pot in the sink. I have to catch the dust so that I don't clog the drain.


A crawl mug ready to clean and other pieces waiting for their day. This photo was taken on Dec. 4th 2016.


Day by day the projects progressed and I wasn't even going to start until January 2017. It felt so good to have this huge early start.

Thank you for the visit. Wendy

hang10tiki you have such a kind heart.

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

Wish List #7 and the Sacramento Crawl mug. More behind the scenes photos. There is some overlap with photos I have posted in the past. It's not always easy to organize when I take so many and post so often.

With the kiln unloaded and in the kitchen it was now time to scrub each piece. I started with the Black Velvet mugs.


After washing they go on the dining room table under plastic to keep dust from falling on them. Dust makes glazing defects.


I made all the Frankoma bowls and for days they have been in and out of plastic. They are now strong enough to turn over to let the bottoms dry. Even still it's only for 1 hour at a time then back in the bag. The same with every project that has attached parts or clay added.


The crawl mugs do not go into a bag but I do rotate them so that the bottom dries at the same rate.


I think this is a repeat of the HUGE Maori lamps that I have made.


The one in the middle and the one with round eyes have sold.


The first one with the floats is still for sale.


I don't wire these I just glaze them and off they go. I really enjoy carving each one differently. That's why I made a blank mold.


Every piece is sanded and fine tuned with carving tools before going into the kiln.


Dan has to dust them all for me while I work.


Then it is time to load the kiln. Bisque can touch each other so more can go into a load.


Each piece must be completely dry or the moisture will boil and explode the piece. When I'm not sure I do a 10 hour preheat and a 13.5 hour slow ramp. That will dry out the last bit of moisture and all the art will be fine.


Before starting this load I remembered that one of the Zombie Village necklaces had cracked in half.


MadDogMike told me about Magic Mend for attaching pieces and doing repairs so I got it out and added it to the top.


I stuck the pieces together.


The preheat will slowly dry this and so I closed the lid and turned it on.


I like to look at the drying table as I add more pieces. The volcano bowl is supported by a plastic tub so that the bottom will dry.


Close up.


A couple of days later the kiln is opened and the pieces removed.


I tried to break off the top and it stayed firm. Great save, thank you MadDogMike.


This is back tracking in that I've shown my solution to the lids cracking.


Too bad these won't work as Frisbees.


I am so lucky to have Dan's help. I am so lucky to have so many friends. You all keep me going.

Cheers, Wendy
