"Should I do some more like this or let the idea go? I would probably spend more time on the sculpt in the future though. What do you think?"

Could be good.
Need a better/more tiki frame/ base.

Here is one I did with a Kahiki lamp style base, just half of lamp.
Used one of those old Mexican wall art things from the 50s.

The PNG looks really old which is really good. I like the way you have mounted it too.


A wonderful surprise in the mail! Dan and I thank you very much for the necklaces. I can now say we have an RVICTOR necklace collection. Did I say we? Dan disappeared with them all!




Made our day a happy one, Wendy

Aloha again...posting some photos of finished mugs...not allot of new mugs...working on a larger super-secret side project that I'll share a while later. Taking up all my carving time but it'll be worth it. It should be another month or so before I post it, so stay tuned...

Barnacle Mug #1 - was considering colors but the wife liked it like this so that's where it's staying I think...













OK - time for a game?

NAME THIS MUG....









As always....Mahalo for looking.

I just figured out that for me the first mug looks like a post from a pier that washed ashore after a tsunami. I like it. Wendy

Wendy-thanks. I had been thinking about the idea for a while now. I may do another, more realistic one in the future. We'll see how it shakes out.

Hang10 - Glad you like it. It's funny because I bought that same mug for my sister in law at Christmas for $50. Shnikes.

Aloha tiki ohana,
Couldn't stay away from the clay. I've been working on a couple different projects but I had to get back to carving a mug yesterday. Since I had built a cylinder and it had dried out a bit too much for what I was planning to do to it, I decided to just play with it. I chose a sketch from my book and did a quick carve. It still needs some trimming at the top (uneven) and need to sand the bottom flat, but I'm not planning on doing much more refinement. Just a quick one and then back to the other projects. Here's some photos of the build.









Again, thanks for looking.

Wendy - Thanks for the complement. However, a Masterpiece to me is limited to any toupee big enough to fit my fat, bald head.

Skip - Love the lights. Glad it met your specifications as well. It will be a cool conversation piece for sure.

Hang10 - You rock brother. Wasn't expecting a package but it sure same. Mug plus a barrage of shwag. Check it...



Very generous and unexpected. You are a gentleman and a scholar.

Mahalo to all my tiki ohana.

Top o the mornin to ya. Had the sculptors workshop last night and picked up a couple things to post. I also had a few really cool things happen yesterday. Maybe some of today's post isnt all about tiki but i figured I'd share.

First cool thing that happened was I got to meet Mike O'Day. He's an Edmonds artist that has been into ceramics for about 10 years. His ceramics and paintings are cool and fun...i think he is very talented. His work is displayed all around Edmonds, WA and he has a website at
http://odayart.com/

I've been admiring his work for years...and ran into him at a workshop next door to the one I go to. I was just checking out the art in the room and noticed him working...after introducing myself and talking about the upcoming show with a "bird theme" that was happening in about 1-1/2 weeks away, he asked me if I was that "tiki guy". When I told him I was, he was nice enough to tell me how much he liked my work. We got to talking and, while I won't bore anyone with the details, but he was complimentary and encouraging towards me. I think he was a little disappointed that I wasn't participating in the upcoming show. Maybe it's just me but I get a real kick out of meeting other artists...it was really cool getting to meet Mike.

The next cool thing was that I have a custom mug order from the local tiki bar now. Need to do a carve and a mold and have 10 by June-July. Going to have to delay some projects until the mold is done I think.

Enough of the banter....I should get to posting more work.

First up, not tiki but the finished planter that I posted earlier. Other than one blemish from the kiln (something touched an edge in the kiln), it turned out fairly well...i may end up doing some more of these sometime as it was fun to do...









Next up...The original carve of the Taki Tiki that survived the mold. Not happy with the glazing...but it's more of a momento anyways. It's a really small mug and I will have to do a new carve for production of the order. Besides, I know I can do it better now.





The minions are drying....tiki mugs with your happy meal kids?



That's it for now. Mahalo again for looking.

RV

He's a really cute small mug. Congratulations on making a working mold. hang10tiki is one of our close friends and isn't it wonderful how tiki brings us all together? Wendy
