Fast progress report so I can get to work!

Psycho Tiki D, got it same glaze as Dan's and mark it #2. Here is your bowl.
Now that it was solid enough I turned it over and filled in the bottom attachment area behind each tiki. I cleaned it up with a damp paper towel rubbing back and forth.

I added the lettering to the bottom of the bowl.

Now it is ready to sit and dry.


Professor G I'm ready for the next manly giggle!
Old lava rock wall at the bottom.



You have a choice to make here. The carved portion of the mug is blue. To me it will look like an island night scene. I can leave it like this and then after it has been glazed I can add small dots to look like stars in the sky with enamel paint which I would then bake on. Or I can just go ahead and super carve this area behind the trees. Either is fine with me just tell me which you prefer.
Stars behind the trees or super carved?




#24 and #25 Cleaned and Drying



The Blue Kahuna - your sombrero is almost completed. I have to say that it is as heavy at those I made by hand in the past. It still needs the bottom finished and the straw hole placed. Here are the steps made so far.

I peeled the edges up so I could lift it out of the mold.

I flipped it over on the table.

I cut away the excess clay from the top.

I put it back in the mold and cut away the excess from the underside.

Now it's looking how I wanted it to look.

I brought out the mug and used it to mark the sombrero.

Using this mark I carved away some clay.

Now there is an inner ledge that will sit on the top of the mug.

Next I made a ring that will sit around the outside top of the mug.

The sombrero will shrink as it dries and I will constantly adjust the rings so that they will fit. I also need to leave room for the glaze.


hang10tiki I have your order and since we pour today your small Bob's and bowl will be part of the work, thank you.

Bob Bowls are $150 buyers choice of colors.

Holler Waller thank you for your "cool" remark.

Confession, I slept in and now I'm behind so off I go to the garage. Starting tomorrow it is to be in the 70's for a few days. That should help my molds dry out better.

Thank you all for stopping by. I love to read your notes. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy, regarding your comment that the sombrero is just as heavy . . . that's going to be okay, nobody said drinking was easy and I'm ready for the challenge . . . courage

It looks spectacular as is (meaning in its unglazed state), I think my head will explode when I see the final product!

See you and Dan later in the week!

Chuck Tatum is Tiki - I don't mind those wows at all, thank you.

The Blue Kahuna - start lifting weights. I want to be famous for heavy long lasting ceramics. Nothing delicate here.

Benzart - dear friend its such a pleasure to see you here. You have over 10,000 posts and every single one of them is sweet and dear just like you.

hang10tiki - here's the next show, yesterday was one of those 10 hour days.

We started our morning with putting the molds together and pouring a set.

Here's my star of the show. Dan the clean up man.


I put mugs outside in the wind to dry. There are dry Zombie Torches waiting to be sanded.


Last night I fired a load. Two hour pre-heat to get out any residual water. A 12.5 hour slow ramp and a 15 minute hold at the perfect temperature. The AeroVent ran the whole time to keep the heat circulating perfectly. If the Bumatay come out fine we will make the trip to Grass Valley this week to deliver all the sea life to Roge so he can start on the newest style lamp.


I had many parts poured and waiting in plastic wrap for assembly. This is my very first Bumatay Fish Bowl.

Trimming the bottom of the bowl.

Checking to see how I wanted to attach the fish heads. Notice my fish oil water-sponge container in the background?

I had to cut a part out of the bottom of each fish so that air can escape.

This is the tool I use.

From the top.

One side.

Another side.


I hope you have all been watching MadDogMikes progress on his trailer and all the creative accouterments. I want to be a part of his whole Mohave experiment. Since he's not had time to make his own mug to match his project I have made one for him. The theme is Cannibal. So here's my version. To match it will be glazed in Yellow, Orange and Brown.

Tongues on tikis are my favorite.

I cut the back of small Bob and used sticky slip to glue him in place.

Cannibal Bob is taste testing his victim.

Did you know that Bob's have feet? Well maybe only the victim does.

Close up view.

Side view.

The back with my message to Mike.



Loki Tiki asked for a Tiki Bob to be changed into his dog Boris. Boris has a nickname of Tiki BA. The photo is of him.





Jeff is this done or would you like jowls added over the corners of the mouth like your dog? I will still carve in fur line all over the mug once you approve. I'll start on your next mug tonight or tomorrow.

Now it is time to go open those molds and start all over again. Oh I did do my Spanish lessons at 11 PM last night. It was a good day.

The kiln will be opened tomorrow when it have totally cooled. Cheers, Wendy

All your stuff is COOL but I am especially in love with the way your Bumatay Fish Bowl is turning out. Consider me on the list for one of those! Great work!!!

YAY!!
This is so much amazing work, I am almost speechless(but I am too big of a ham to be completely mute )
I think stars would look really cool on mister Bob, but to be honest, even as it is with the trees, it is absolutely beautiful!
Way to go, Wendy!

Hilarious!!!! I didn't know Tiki Bob had feet. I love it Wendy! It will be a great addition to the Tahitian Cannibal Trailer entourage

Thank you so much

Mike

Wendy, you're on fire.

Everything is looking beautiful. I really believe everyone involved in this is feeling like they're getting the best Bob in the world.

Good Morning Friends

Trader Tom, I'm so happy you like the Bumatay Bowl. I'll keep you in my mind for one.

WestADad, Mike was happy.

ZeroTiki, Professor G said yes to the stars. I caught Dan standing in front of your two paintings the other day. We love them.

MadDogMike, its a joy to be part of your cannibal exhibit for Mohave.

Professor G, today we get the next resin lamp going and I need to pick up 18 gallons of slip so I can keep on pouring. I'm very happy that everyone has liked their mugs.

Progress Report:
Dan sands the top and bottoms of the Zombie Torch mugs and then I fine tune the carving again. Then he'll use the air compressor before we fire.

All the molds together after pouring.

That many molds give me this many tikis.

I'm still keeping up with cleaning each one and then it sits to slowly dry out. I've lost count. When I open the kiln I check how many good mugs I have.


I was given the go ahead by Loki Tiki to add the furry jowls to Tiki BA's face.

I also carved in some fur.



FROM THE SIDE THIS DOG HAS PROBLEMS. JEFF IS GOING TO SEND ME PHOTOS OF HOW HIS DOG LOOKS FROM THE SIDE AND I'LL WORK ON THE NOSE. I'VE NEVER OWNED A DOG. WE ARE CAT PEOPLE.
Next I carved a Mosaic Bob for Atomic Chick.





Now the day begins. I hope you each have something fun or joyful happen to you today. Cheers, Wendy
